So, what is the difference, and why use 2 different types of steel in your forged iron offerings?
I think they use the 8620 in their “form forgings” and the 1035 in their “true forgings”.
I had the M45’s years ago. Best irons I ever bagged. Wish they still had conforming grooves. Haven’t been able to find a suitable replacement yet, and I’ve tried and tried. Oh well…they were 8620 form forged, but I just loved the depth and richness of the feel. I have the DBM irons now…they are true-forged 1035. They feel nice, but to me, not as deep or rich. Just me. I know they are revered by so many…and they are beautiful, for sure, but I think they feel just a bit light to me. Analogous to a light-bodied beer vs. a full-bodied beer. I just loved the 8620 form forged feel compared to the DBM’s. It might also be related to the deeper cavity and/or the very thin top of the DBM’s compared to the M45’s…not sure.
