Looks like you have the Adams MB Pro Blacks. Those look awesome. I'm thinking about switching to forged for my next set, since I get occassional distance anomalies with my current casted set. Are the muscle-backs a lot harder to hit?


The short answer is "yes".

The long answer is that upgrading to blades has done more for my iron game than anything else I have ever done. But there was a lot of frustration that went into learning how to hit them....learning how to properly take a divot, which is something I still struggle with. I still really struggle with the 5i and 6i. But they are extremely accurate when I hit them square.

A four iron (I also have a 4 and a 3 hybrid).

I quite like it.

thanks for the long and short of it. I've started hitting all my clubs better recently, and I get good contact and compression consistently, but would like more feedback than what I'm getting now. not sure about the jump to pure players' musclebacks, looking at something like the Mizuno mp-59's or the new Adams CMB clubs coming out that are kind of a hybrid 1/2 cavity with backweights. that being said, you can't argue with the sheer beauty of the clean, thin topline MB clubs, I guess I'm just a little intimidated by them, that's all. I wish I could try them out first.

Are you calling me a liar, player? I said in a post above that my whole set (3-pw) is hybrid: Cleveland XLI if you want to know what it is. It's actually ok for the most part, but my next set will be true irons, probably MBs, up to at least 6i... Not that it matters what you're gaming when it's all virtual on the PS3, right? Grow up!

Started carrying a 5 iron with the new MP-59's this year - hitting it pretty well. Also picked up last year's Cleveland Mashie 3 & 4 hybrids. Those things are beasts. Very surprising! Shocked

Playing a parital cavity is a good compromise. I went from the Adams Tight Lies clubs to their partial cavity set before I went to the MB's. There are still some days where I feel like I should be playing the partial cavities. Today, for instance, I was hitting everything thin. I was just scared to take a divot.

5I, I can still hit the 4 Iron but it has been replaced with a hybrid, the 4 hybrid hits so much higher it is worth having, plus it's alot easier to get out of the rough than the 4 iron for me.

A pitching wedge hybrid? Yeah right. And how did you know I have a ps3?

It is true. I think Cobra and Adams may have made, or might still make a set as well. The pitching wedge and shorter irons don't look like a "hybrid" like you would buy off the rack. They look like a combination of a standard wedge/short iron and a hybrid. Still, you really should stop calling people liars. You know what they say about people in glass houses.

Cleveland XLI (check my equipment page). Yes, the pitching wedge almost looks like a "normal" one, just a little beefier on the back, but the whole set is hybrid nonetheless. It was a good idea to buy that set at the time (4-5 years ago). I have outgrown it, for the short and mid-irons, and my next set will be more traditional, while I will probably be keeping the 3 and 4 "irons" (hybrids) from the current set.

player, you are just a bumbling fool!

Btw, how do I know that you have a PS3, player? Simple, genius: I mentioned once something about you spending all your time on an Xbox instead of being at a course and your comeback was: "I don't have an Xbox, duh, I have a PS3", or some such. Even, if you had not said anything, it's pretty obvious that you are not a real golfer, just a (game console) player, and so the odds are about 50/50 that you have a PS3 or an Xbox (or even both!). QED.

Sorry to bust somebodies bubble but I play with a all hybrid iron set 3 though PW and have just ordered the sand wedge to match. Took me a while to adapt but now I am hitting them well, with confidence.
