Hello Britt just want to know you mentioned you guys are working on and muscle back blade for 2018 would it be a midsummer release or Late Fall release ? Just trying to see would it be worth me buying the mmb-17 blades ? Will the new blades be a replacement for the MMB 17 or will this be added to the MMB 17 muscle back blades?
As it stands now, I would say the new non cavity iron will be late summer at best and probably next fall. The new product is not a replacement for the MMB. Totally different type of muscle back/blade. We have hit the initial prototype and it is awesome, in my biased opinion. However, we are tweaking the tooling in the short irons to get the leading edge and transition into the hosel more to our liking. When we do these types of tweaks, it can delay, by several months, the release. We want it to be what we envisioned, so no compromises on any club head in the set.
I know what you mean. I haven’t changed irons ever since the DBM’s came out and I REALLY want to build a set of these and play with them for a while to see if I can displace my DBM’s. The Forged Cavity version is just as awesome and I can see having the cavity in the long and mid irons and the non cavity in the short irons. May have to build two sets!
There will be a slight offset progression. Very slightly less than the MMB-17. The MMB progresses from .145 in the long irons to .100 in the short irons. The new iron is .120 in the long irons to .090 in he short irons.
