    Sorry to confuse. As I was leaving I noticed set on wall, but not the shafts I like. I was hitting different heads with various shafts, CB ( really liked those) So , as someone who has played blades for Decades ( to long to mention !!) , I asked for the MB. I was told "no, we don't have them here",,, barely anyone uses them" . So I thought that was weird, I mentioned to the clerk but I can hit cally, mizuno or Srixon, but not the Titleist??. Really wasn't a reply. The more I think about it, I think its just that they didn't have those heads in yet.








    That sounds more like it.

      When Chris fit me last Dec he made a comment along the lines of, iirc, that I was the first guy he had fit who had come in looking for blades and actually _was_ fit for blades. Lol.

        Does not make it right in my view. Its simple. As a company Titleist makes and markets clubs. As a consumer I should be able to try ALL of their clubs with various shafts, as I am able to do with so many other brands as mentioned. I think really the reason was they didn't have the heads yet- but I should not be told "no one buys them so we don't carry them". That's not right in my view, but already a fellow TGN member has hooked me up somewhere to try them.

          Guess I'm in the minority too, have played them just fine for over 20 years, but that's NOT the point. If I can try other brands heads with various shafts, why not the Titleist MB?. Its Simple- Titleist makes products, as a consumer I should be able to try all of them that are in the market as I can others. I really think now , it was simply that they did not have it yet.

            So less than 1 out of every 100 iron sets sold are blades....not many at all, surprised GT even carries them in any stores

              Might be even less than that.
