Stopped into the The Golf Mechanic's shop today and was blown away by a gorgeous set of UNITED SBB1 Tour Blades.  Matt said they were the best looking set of blades at the PGA Merchandise show.  I was curious to see how they felt he had a 6 iron shafted with a MODUS 120 TX shaft I had to try it.  Took it out to the range for a demo.  WOW!!!! is an understatement of how good these felt and how amazing they look at address, not to mention how stunning the backs looked CNC milled from s25c  with a gun metal finish.  I was SOLD he's building me 4-PW tomorrow can't wait to game them.   The SBB1 Tours are JAPAN forged I believe the rest of the line is forged in China, a great line from driver to wedge.   I posted a link to UNITED's site below...

1150 ($1825) a set of 3-PW?
Good looking or not, automatically pricing themselves above market leading forgings sounds like business suicide. How many japan forging nutters are out there anyway? Oh wait......

Matt built me a set of Yonex Ezone mb's with C-Tapers and an Ezone 380 driver with a Tour AD 9003S and I have nothing but the most respect for him and his abilities.  After seeing the above post yesterday, I called him and I'm considering this too.
How did a pure strike feel...any comparisons?...I've recently played MP68's and now Yonex Ezone mb's.

I'm in awe!!! I never thought I would be hitting a blade again.  I have to admit at first it was more of an impulse buy, seeing how gorgeous they looked.  But then I hit them as a demo and thought wow ther'ye not so bad or hard to hit after all.  And now playing 3 rounds with them I can honestly say they're amazing. Everything about the performance is A+ (feel, flight, distance control etc...) probably the BEST INVESTMENT!!!!!!!!! I've made in a while.  If you are someone who plays blades you will be overwhelmingly satisfied with these irons..  
Matt has a set he just put together with Monaco's and NO1 grips the copper shaft and gun metal heads look sick... I'm a little jealous but still very happy with the MODUS TX's....

Good for you, give my best to Matt.  How do they compare to the af302?  I was looking at those (I cant ever seem to find enough forged cb's, despite the three exta sets sitting in my study). If you've hit epon, yonex or prgr would love to hear your thoughts.

Lovely sticks. I think it's a UK owned company, very nice iron designs. But I'd rather wait a few years for their rep to grow before spending high end prices on them.

Talked to Matt (thegolfmechanic) and found out that SBB1s are forged from Kyoei (Vega, Scratch, Whitlam, Geotech, ...etc).  I was on the verge of building a set of Scratch SB1s but now Matt's building me a set of SBB1s with Recoil Prototype 110 F4.

I've tried many JDM forged irons (Vega, Miura, Fourteen, Epon, Honma, Geotech, Yururi, Maruman, etc) but I love the Kyoei feel - they're the most buttery of all forged clubs.  My Vega RAF-CM and T50 heads are amazing.

Just got my United SBB1s with UST Recoil Prototype 110 F4 shafts.  These clubs are simply gorgeous.  I just gamed them today.  They are buttery soft and super stable.  On a smooth easy swing these clubs are 1.5-2 club lengths longer than my current gamers (Vega T50 with Fuji Rombax 115 S).  Matt did a great job on these.  They simply look the business.  Thanks for looking.

just bought mine off the BST and had one round of indoor golf on them. They are softer feeling than my Honma TW717M and size/feel wise is very close to the Adams Mb2.

i got mine in the black PVD finish and it looks amazing!

I bought a set from the bst as well (making2'sand3's---he is awesome to work with. So helpful and has amazing stuff). But I bought just the SBB1s. My understanding is that they are slightly larger and slightly more forgiving than the tours.

Anyway, they are awesome. Very soft and very clean looking. I liked them so much I picked up some vega wedges to go along with them: 50 vw10, 54 vw2, 58 vw2.

I never would have tried this stuff if it were not for Golfwrx.

I'm going to put them through the gauntlet to see if they can knock my trusty 714 AP2s out of my bag.

I just picked up a set from him as well. SBB1's with the matte black recoil 110 proto's. I figure worst case I pull the proto's. From what I read here should be awesome as is!!

The SBB1 Tour is fantastic.  It seems to have the perfect balance of soft and solid.  While it has a longer blade length than a traditional muscle back, so do most blades made nowadays.  Fortunately, the black finish helps to hide its size.

That's good to hear mtex. Since you and I are alike in that we switch clubs frequently. I am thoroughly enjoying the United SBB1 tours I picked up. Pleasantly surprised I may add

From what I've read, size and forgiveness are major difference between Tour and regular SBB1. Is there any other differences ? Are they both forged by Kyoie? Does SBB 1 feel soft as tour?

That's good to hear mtex. Since you and I are alike in that we switch clubs frequently. I am thoroughly enjoying the United SBB1 tours I picked up. Pleasantly surprised I may add

I bought a set from the bst as well (making2'sand3's---he is awesome to work with. So helpful and has amazing stuff). But I bought just the SBB1s. My understanding is that they are slightly larger and slightly more forgiving than the tours.

Anyway, they are awesome. Very soft and very clean looking. I liked them so much I picked up some vega wedges to go along with them: 50 vw10, 54 vw2, 58 vw2.

I never would have tried this stuff if it were not for Golfwrx.

I'm going to put them through the gauntlet to see if they can knock my trusty 714 AP2s out of my bag.

I just picked up a set from him as well. SBB1's with the matte black recoil 110 proto's. I figure worst case I pull the proto's. From what I read here should be awesome as is!!

I bought a set of UNITED SBB1s with matte black recoil prototypes 110  from him too ???

Nice round!

That rough reminds me of the rough at the TPC. It was like a half stroke penalty if you missed the fairway.

I think a few of us did.

The ones I have are shafted with shimada tour mid shafts. I'm not sure I like the shafts yet since I play steelfibers. I may reshaft them. I need to play a few more rounds with them.

I got the vega wedges in as well. So far, I like them a lot.  I like the forged feel. That's why I play the Mizuno T5s. I've never been a Vokey guy--too harsh for my liking.
