    It's a hard job to make a blade look gay but Feel comes close with this faggoty offering. Anyone who even considers buying these definitely takes it up the blurter.

    Sergio likes yellow too. As evidenced by his 2006 Open 'tweety bird' ensemble.

    The new VR's are nice looking. I swung the cavity muscle version. The blade doesn't come in LH. To my surprise it was a nice club. Great feel and workable.

    I've always thought these blades looked nice

    Part of the reason I like Nike so much is I feel they are becoming a powerhouse in the golf world. It doesn't take 40 yrs to become a great manufacturerererer(sp?) of clubs, It takes players and designers that work hard to make good clubs. IMHO if Tiger is helping design a club he plans on using on tour it's PROBABLY going to be amazing.

    I feel so many people stay away from Nike BECAUSE it's Nike and there's just no way they can make good products in ANOTHER sport..

    Those Srixons are absoultely magnificent looking clubs. One of the purest looking blades on the market. On looks alone they would rate up there with the MP33's. Not sure about the quality tough as never hit them, but if they are Japanese forged they would play as good as they look.

    now that i've cleaned the puke off my keyboard thanks to deadly's post, i have a hard time deciding between the sexiest blade ever.

    help me decide, i've narrowed it down to 2.

    do you choose this one


    or this one?

    i know they both spark instant boners, but i just can't decide

    AFter today's range session, these particular blades are staying with me... memories of Johnny Miller's time of greatness, rechromed and with modern shafts.

    delicious. :-)

    For those I haven't repeated this to, the E740 is the custom grind of the Tour Blade favored by Johnny Miller in 74-75...

    Sweet looking club Lyle. Very futuristic looking for a blade yet very traditional at the same time. I like them.



    But they are not as sexy as the club in my avatar. Nothing is. You're not a real man until you can appreciate a good rac.

    ...and the shafts on your 33's are about as weak as your flames.

    Mizuno is just wasting perfectly good metal by putting it all the way across the back like that, instead of the only place that matters - behind the sweet spot.

    Lower MPF score FTW!

    My irons are technologically prehistoric according to Ralph Maltby. That's gotta count for something.

    I bet if I put set of brand new set of Mizuno MP-33 on one side of a room and a naked wet and willing stripper on the other side of the room you wouldn't blink an eye, you would go straight for those mizunos. I play a hybrid but that's **** sexual

    According to a friend of mine who has a high ranking position in U.S. intelligence, the club on the top is authentic and the one on the bottom is a forgery. Based on that, he's trying to convince the Bush administration to invade Japan before Obama takes office.

    Yeah I agree, I want to get me some of those sweet looking Miura's. I wanted to get the special edition 15% 'smaller blade' pictured but I spoke to my Miura dealer and he told me that next year they are bringing out a blade that is 20% smaller again so I am going to hold out for that model. I'm going to get 1-PW.

    I'll fit the 1 iron in by taking out the 58*. After all no 'real man' playing blades would want a wedge over 56* now would they?
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    In all fairness Kiwi i have heard that if you wait Omen (RiP),NAH, BJ etc etc are in discussion with Mr Miura to produce a GR set of Miura Blades

    The Head is so small you are actually playing with the hosel. In that way you can assess the size of your testes against your ability to "pure" the ball. I for one are considering it so i can start shooting in the 100's again. After all the more shots you take the better value for money you get out of the course

    Thanks Edgey, in that case I'll definitely hold out for the special GR Edition Miura's.

    I'm also looking into getting some old style smaller golf balls. These modern oversize monstrosities are way too easy to hit and make the game far too easy. It's almost like cheating. These balls strike at the very integrity of the game of golf.

    I think you will find that the "small" golf balls were ENGLISH spec. The larger golf balls were AMERICAN.

    Hence the AMERICANS have made the game easier, damn yanks got a lot to answer for.

    I have therefore decided to buy some GR Miuras, Persimmon Woods and a small NAPA type blade putter. I will start using English golf balls, reintroduce the stymie rule, remove rakes from bunkers and ban all tee pegs. Lets get some f ucking traditional values back in the game.

    I ask all GR members who have a pair to join my quest for a return to mens golf, not the h0mosexual bollocks that is played now. Death to hybrids, thrivers, GI POS CB OS Shovels, 5 woods, 7 woods, visors, cargo shorts,Callaway, Ping .......................................

    I will be there, Mr "Cargo Shorts" BJ.

    My friends and i will be armed with LOVETT WEDGES. We intend to duff you up and will not leave the field of honour until blood is spilt.

    In the meantime i am prepared to offer you this one chance to withdraw your insult and publicly apologise. If not prepare for a Wiggle type beatdown.

    Ps You are a little bigger than me (not much) and as i have Italian blood in me i am prepared to immediately surrender when the fighting starts.

    Or you could do what Mussolini and the Italian lads did in WW2. Just side with whoever is winning at the time!

    Titleist 695 MB

    I think the Titleist 695 MB has to be considered as one of the sexiest blades.

    I also like the Wilson Staff Fluid Feel (1987 - 1988) and Tour Blade Line Over (1984 - 1986). Something about the bullet markings on the face.

    This is a biased opinion, since I do own all the above and more.

    Et tu, Kiwi? Mussolini only sided with the bad guys, and was killed when he stopped amusing everyone. But it is true, we have perhaps the second shortest list of war heroes of any country, behind only the New Zealanders.

    And Edgey, it's better that you surrender than fight like Montgomery did. That said, you did have the greatest leader of the 20th century in Churchill. Italy just hasn't produced a guy like that. But at least we have food in Italy.

    Churchill couldn't have been a great leader... after all the english kicked him out of office very quickly after the war, and they are too smart to have done that to a great leader.. right?

    NOt only that... Churchill did NOT take up golf in retirement.

    Definitely not a great man.

    Actually BJ, my irons have the same shafts as yours do, although I don't think mine are the flighted version. They are also forged from the same 1025 carbon steel.

    I said it the way I did so we could both sound like we didn't have a clue.

    I'm a sarcastic mf at times, I know.

    Sorry Loz but your wrong on 2 counts here

    The Kiwis have produced a large number of very brave war hero's in both WW1 and WW2 who won the VC.

    Churchill was a great WARTIME leader, they do not always make the best peacetime leaders.

    I'll acceed on NZ war heroes. As an Italian I'm not qualified to judge that sort of thing. On Churchill, WWII was the greatest challenge of the 20th century, and Churchill handled things brilliantly. You guys were destined to screw everything up after WWII no matter who was at the helm.

    As to Monty, jeez are you kidding? What a clown. North Africa was a junior campaign. When he got to Sicily, he had Patton on his flank who outraced and embarrassed him. At Ardennes, the Germans caught the Allies with their pants down and almost won the war with that bold campaign. But the Germans, using men with little or no experience, ran out of fuel. And Ardennes was after Market Garden. MG was easily the biggest Allied debacle of the war and was Monty's "brainchild". Patton was mowing down the entire German army and was about to move into Germany and probably would have ended the war in 1944, saving hundreds of thousands of lives.

    But Monty threw a tantrum and demanded the Allies use his plan, and so Patton was denied additional fuel. Of 10,000 paratroopers dropped into Arnhem, over 7,500 didn't return. And the Dutch, as a result of the operation, suffered mass starvation that winter. Monty's impact was reduced in importance thereafter. Patton's 3d army rolled through Germany.

    The difference in lives lost both military and civilian by Montgomery being in the war at all is huge and tragic. Lucky for the British, Eisenhower thought it was more important to save Allied and British face than subject that little moron to the treatment he deserved.

    .
    No offence Lorenzo but my take on Italy's involvement in WW2 can be summarised as follows:

    In 1939 Mussolini wasn't at all keen to go to war with his buddy Herr Hitler but when he saw that Hitler was kicking everyone else's @ss he decided to get in on the act and send his army into Greece. Trouble is the Greeks had the audacity to actually fight back - imagine that! (with a little help from a few Kiwis including double VC winner Sir Charles Upham).

    So Hitler had to release a couple of divisions and send them into Greece/Crete to clean up the mess and finish the fight that the Duce had started - which the Germans did quite decisively.

    Later when the tide turned you killed Mussolini and sided with the Allies.

    So that's my take on it. Feel free to prove me wrong.

    Edgey has already pointed out that NZ has produced many war heroes. A couple of other notables besides Charles Upham.

    Keith Park who was a commander of the RAF during the Battle of Britain - "If any one man won the Battle of Britain, he did. I do not believe it is realised how much that one man, with his leadership, his calm judgement and his skill, did to save, not only this country, but the world." Lord Tedder Chief of the Royal Air Force, February 1947.

    And as recently as 2007 Willie Apiata won the VC for bravery whilst serving in Afghanistan.

    So we are quite proud of our contribution to defending mother Britain and the free world in two WW's and even today in Afghanistan. Although we were smart enough to stay OUT of Iraq!
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    That was just so that they could bring all the boys home at the end of the war. Churchill wanted to keep em deployed in various theatres to protect British interests so they voted him out.

    Don't forget he was re-elected in 1951.

    Good summary, Kiwi. I thought you had said Mussolini took both sides. It's an ugly chapter in Italy. Italians thought he was a daffy fool who got things running but wasn't dangerous. As in Germany, there were powerful armament manufacturers who wanted to sell. Italy had been, essentially, city states until not long before the war and even then was far from unified. It needed a stronger central government. The vast majority of citizens just never expected any real warmaking and turned on him when the opportunity was there. There was little fervor as evidenced by the military not really showing interest in winning although ability surely factored in as well. Discipline and organization aren't strong suits of modern Italy. The culture peaked long ago with the Roman Empire and again during the Renaissance.

    As I've been told, and who knows if this is revisionist, the strongest sentiment amongst Mussolini era citizens was horror that Italy was aligned with Germany in any way.

    And I would never seriously question Kiwi valor.

    And I meant no real offence to Italians either. I agree that Mussolini was a daffy fool who dragged Italy into a war in which you had no business simply because of Mussolini's association with Hitler.

    I just spoke with the man. He is going to email the additional photos. He said they are all the same serial numbers and do not have any rust on the face. He also said he is getting many calls on them. So, if anyone is interested I would act fast. Fortunately we have over 10" of snow portland and I don't think anyone is going to pick these things up real soon. He is within walking distance to me.

    From the photos, it doesn't look like the sweet spots have been hit much. For that price it is kind of tempting. But then I'd change out the shafts to Nippons at $50-60 per and then still a maybe a bargain but not as much.

    I am cleaning out my garage and and have decided to get rid of all my extra sets of golf clubs.


    Extra sets?

    Surely after playing the 33's he wouldn't play anything else? Presumably he is playing a newer set of MP-33's.
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    Well I guess you try the rest and then go with the best. Must not have been 'man' enough for the Tour version.

    I'm betting that the MP-33's were just too plain looking. Needed more graphics and stuff.

    Or from the wrong side of the ball. I would have bought them for $150 if they were LH.

    I'm surprised Dave "No Mizuno For You!!!!" Perkins isn't all over these babies.

    HB, we await your authoritative action on this matter, preemptively, if possible.

    DaveP, henceforward you will be allowed to purchase Mizunos. It's Christmas and the Mizzy quorum was in a good mood. The only caveat is that you melt your current Adams, plastic and all, and bury it in a Hello Kitty cookie jar.

    My vote for sexiest blade goes to the KZG ZO Blade in satin finish. I may be changing my vote to Miuras when I get my fitting this afternoon.

    Sorry to come in late on this thread, but I hope all you guys are in jest when you say Churchill was a great leader. You won't get too many people agreeing with you from our part of the world. His 'leadership' is the main reason Australia and New Zealand built up such a highly regarded reputation in wars. Because that pommy fukka kept throwing us into impossible situations, and used us as cannon fodder, which meant basically fight hard or die. Amongst some of his hair brained ideas was to use the ANZACS as decoys at Gallipoli to keep the Turks occupied (by making us run at machine gun nests) while the brits tried to attack through the Dardenelles (possibly the best defensive position in miltary history and doomed to failure). He also did not release Aussie troops from Europe during WWII even though we were being invaded by the Japs. Thankfully the good ol boys from the US of A came to the rescue like the cavalry in a western movie.

    The 690's are fine looking blades but the ZM's just don't do it for me. I like the club and might consider it for my next purchase but they are a long way for nice looking.

    I agree totally. I prefer the looks of the 690's but by looking at them from the top line both clubs look nearly identical. New technology? not really, just a new look.

    Sexiest Blades Ever

    Remember the Founders Club Series 200 Blades? I thought these were so beautiful. Lee Janzen used them to win the 1993 US Open at Baltusrol. That was when Founders Club was in San Diego area.

    HB, since you sold out, why not just ship your 32's to Dave so he knows what GFF greatness feels like?

    From HB's perpective, I'm thinking, save them in case I want to play them down the road or give them to an Adams guy. Some decisions are brutally diffcult, others make themselves.

    The Olive Garden is to Italian food what Callaway Big Bertha irons are to blades. Put another way, Olive Garden is kind of like MP-33-s with graphite shafts.
