The Wilson blades will more than likely be my next set. They are stunning!

Results of this aren’t what I expected.

🥇 Wilson (by nearly double over 2nd)
🥈 Mizuno
🥉 Srixon
4th PING
5th Cobra MB
6th Titleist MB / Cally MB (tie)

No votes for Tour Edge or Honma.

Hogan’s getting a vote, and the TW’s getting a vote too.

For those of you that picked the Wilson’s, what was the main reason? (And did you see that GW High Toe? [emoji7])

The vertical dots along the score lines, the cut on the rear of the muscle and the etching below the ferrule.

 

They were hands down the best looking and a throwback to days of old when Wilson was a top 3 iron on Tour.

Getting blade aesthetics correct (in my judgment) is a delicate balance between doing something interesting without making the club look busy and garish. There are several blades in this comp that are absolutely great looking blades, but they're entirely nondescript: Titleist, PING, Mizuno, and Callaway (for me) seem underdesigned. I'm absolutely certain that for many players in this class, that total simplicity is what they're looking for, and I get that. But they don't immediately win me over just on looks.

On the other end are clubs that seem a bit overdone: Honma is in this class for me. The various angles don't seem to have any harmony.

The TaylorMade entries are interesting to me. Simple, but with some nice elements. Probably on balance, though, still a little too simple.

I've loved Rickie's blades for a while now, and still do. But they good looking in a less classic way. I'd classify the Hogans the same way: I like them, but they don't give me the same "now that's what a blade should look like!" vibe.

The Exotics is (in my opinion) just ugly. The shape looks clunky (maybe it's the angle of the picture?), the graphics are too aggressive for a blade, while the design is bland. All around, it is not a combination that appeals to me at all.

The finalists for me are the Wilsons and the Srixons. Both of them are just gorgeous: simple, but not bland. Understated, but with elegant design touches that give them character.

I voted Wilson as well. For me it combined the classic features like dot framed scoring lines and knurled hosel rings with modern aesthetics like the milling without overdoing it.

I think the best looking blades are the ones that can be in the bag for 20 or 30 years but still look like they could have been designed yesterday. Timeless.
