Folks, this is my first post. In 1980 at the age of 16, I purchased Staff Tour Blades with True Temper Dynamic R Shafts with the 2 iron and SW. The irons felt like you were hitting a soft rubber "super ball" when you hit them pure.  I played these clubs until 2000, when I caved to PingEye 2. The Pings gave better consistency on off center hits, but never felt as good as the Wilsons.

I just got a used set of Mizuno MP30 with R300. They too have a great feel when you hit them pure, but I think the Staff Tour Blads were softer. I love the feel of blades, and the Mizuno gives me the forgiveness, but lack the workability that the Staff Blades provided. Have you all seen the new Wilson Blades? Nice!!!

The first set I brought myself was a set of Ben Hogans and I remember them being great,  until they were stolen 😥 I've also really enjoyed the Mp-4s, although currently playing a cavity back. Whenever my game gets in the slumps I switch back to a blade because I know when I'm striking it well with a blade again a cb will be money.

Looks and feel are probably the two most over used and useless words used to describe a Golf Club. So I’ll say without a doubt my current Mizuno 919 Forged Tour irons are the best clubs I’ve ever owned. For just looks my Mizuno MP5s take home the trophy. Strictly feel goes to the set stolen from the trunk of my car; Mizuno MP37s.
