Your Easiest to hit blades?
Posted 03 February 2019 - 11:16 AM
Original X proto's were also good, as were the mp32's. The cuts in the muscle in both models helped put the weight where you want it to aid forgiveness.
One of my favorites for an easier to hit blade were the Snake Eyes 600b.
Thought the mb2's were pretty good also.
I always found the Staff fg51's not demanding for an older model.
KZG ZO's have a slightly longer blade length which seemed to give a sweet spot a bit bigger than some.
I had better stop there. Starting to sound like confessions of a blade addict.
I was going to ask u in that thread, but figured why not ask everyone.
Thx for your list Oldplayer. Still think u need to change your handle to "Not so Oldplayer" lol.
No reason to stop, you could write a blade book and we would be eager to read it. Keeper flown in.

I think my MP 37’s and 690 MB would probably be the two I would choose right now. They almost all seemed easy compared to my first set, Murifield 20th’s.

Also found my MP 5's, MP4's, MP 68"s, MP37's, MP33's, and MP29's fairly easy strike contenders
Agree on the Apex MB, they look great too.
I play MP-5 and definititely forgiving for a blade, dont need sweet spot 100% of the time. You definitely know when it is not a good hit but the performance loss is not too bad. MP-4, ugh, did not find that easy at all. For me if it was not pured it did not end up well. looks crazy good from address, it ended there for me.

Adams really had something going. The added weights help get the ball up and IMO enlarge the sweet spot. They do have a bit to much offset but that can also help in many ways. Especially for someone just getting into blades.
The only other blade easier than MB2's are United SBB Tours / Pro blades. Longer heel to toe they are SO easy to play. I have a full set if anyone is interested...

They're not. They're pretty dead feeling no matter the shaft. Aesthetically, one of the most beautiful, performance wise they were very underwhelming.
I would try a Maltby TS1 head paired with a reliable shaft. Has a fairly high MPF rating for an MB type iron.
Snow will melt soon Stone!
Let's flipping hope so, -39.8 C was too dang cold, -16 today, that feels like spring. Not... it will be a few months yet unfortunately.
I'd have to disagree with this. I've played the FH1000's for most of last year and they are very forgiving for a blade and felt good to me. Are they the best feeling blade I've ever hit? No, but not a dead feeling. I was playing the newest version of it though. I know they had several ones including one that was cast.
Another good one is the Cobra Fly Z Pro's. For some reason the King MB's didn't feel as good and weren't as forgiving as the Fly Z's. Wish I had never sold mine.
