I'll reiterate what I said when I was notified... Holy s***! That was literally my first thought. I actually got an email alert while standing in line paying for the Callaway PM Grind wedges I posted

I have a novel idea. Let's focus on congratulating the testers.   This is going to be a pretty cool experience for them and I'm really looking forward to hearing what these guys have to say.  

Bribery, while generally frowned upon in polite society, is perfectly acceptable here    Seriously, there are a TON of outstanding applications.  Hope you guys are enjoying the process. Love readin

Yea, yea, sour grapes. This isn't a contest to "win",and not everyone can be selected to do the work.

You mad? I was just pointing out something that I thought was interesting. Nothing more, nothing less.

 

And FWIW, I didn't expect to be picked. I've been here maybe a month..

I agree. Not sure why this got sidetracked.

 

Congrats guys!

Oh man awesome opportunity and great selections by the committee! To the 0-5 duo let's see some serious nickel sized SS wear outta those bad boys before August! Interested more so in how the higher handicappers like these irons. I kind of wish a 15+ group would've been picked. Would've love to been able to silence all of the idiots who say "I picked up blades for practice and instantly got better." That would've been great!

 

 

Great opportunity for Hogan and MGS as well. Dig it out of the dirt boys!

Of course everyone wanted to "win"

Who wouldn't?

 

There were some very specific reSons the testers were chosen, and I for one, can't wait to see the results, even though it's going to take months.

I'm really hoping a "mizzy" guy is in the group, as I haven't checked. But, if these can be included in a discussion with mizzies when we talk about the ultimate "feeling" iron, I will be deeply impressed. I would like to think it's common knowledge that the mizzy blades are the best feeling clubs of all times, so I'm imploring the testers, at least one of them, to please rate them next to an MP offering...

:callaway-small: MavriK Sub Zero 9* on EvenFlow RipTide 6.0 50g

:cobra-small: Speedzone 3-wood on Tensi blue S

:cobra-small: F8 5/6 wood on Aldila NxT GEN MLT R

:Hogan: Combo iron set -8,9,per Icon 5,6,7 PtxPro 4-UiHi on Recoil 780 ES f4 Stiff shafts (best clubs ever)

:benhogan-small: Equalizer 50°, 54°, 60° wedges on Recoil 780 f4

If it makes you feel at ease, I played T-Zoid Trues followed by wearing out 3 sets of MP33's in high school followed by MP37's. Also played a set of TN87's for a while as well. So I'm familiar with Mizzy blades.

Challenge accepted. I haven't worn out a set of irons in a while.

 

I will be testing these against my Adams MB2s and a set of AP2s that I played for a bit last year. The MB2s are going to be tough to beat since they are one of the best irons I have ever had in the bag.

Well, im just a LITTLE late to the party!

 

The first thought through my mind when I got my email?

 

That I was dreaming.

 

I've been dreaming about this opportunity since it was posted here on the forum. I wanted so badly to contribute to this site In a meaningful way, and not only that but to have a truly unforgettable experience.

 

I can safely say I feel I'm in for both. Being in the high handicapper segment, I'm excited to see how these irons play. To the poster who asked about a Mizuno guy, I'm your guy. I played Mp-59's for awhile and have a deep appreciation for that company. I'm very excited to see what kind of comparisons I can provide in that area (and more)

 

To MGS, thank you. Deeply. You'll have as much as I can put into these bad boys and more. I truly look forward to getting started!

 

To everyone else, I truly hope I can give you the content you want, no, deserve with my findings.

 

I am so thrilled for the opportunity and can't wait to get started!

I can't believe I was selected to review these!  So pumped and I hope I provide some good insight for everyone!  I'll be able to compare them head to head with my Adams CMBs which are going to be very difficult to beat out!  I've played a handful of other irons in the past 5 years as well (Mizzy MP 60s and 30s, TM MCs, TM R9tp, Ping i20, Rocketbladez TP).  Haven't tried the KBS Tour V shafts yet so looking forward to that as well (previously usually play x100s, but had the Pro Modus 3s and KBS TOURs as well).  Can't wait for them to arrive!
