I read a piece earlier about forged club designs that became classics and templates for OEM's to use as a base when designing their latest offerings. So I thought this would cause some debate, as some of them are not my cup of tea, but: ........ Some are to die for

Ben Hogan 50th Anniversary
TaylorMade TP Forged (Japan)
MacGregor VIP V-Foil
Titleist Muira Forged (T127/500)
Nike V-R Blade
Tour Stage MR23
KZG ZO Blades
Epon AF-301
GIGA CB-781
Nickent ARC
North Western TW276
Tommy Armour V-31
Gauge Design RC1
Bridgestone J33
Epon Technica Pro1
Mizuno MP32
Mizuno MP14
Vega 50th Anniversary
Miura Tournament Blades
Miura CB501

I've managed to find a link to a very similar article, which has photo's and some other clubs added to the above list, which have been mentioned by some. A bit more comprehensive

In all honesty of all those listed, the only ones I actually like are:

Nike V-R Blade
KZG ZO Blades
North Western TW276
MacGregor VIP V-Foil
and the ones that really catch my eye are the Vega's though if they are on the list then the Mizuno TP 9 should be as they are clearly based on the iconic design on them.

Not the best pic but here they are

Not the best pic either but the TP 11 pretty looking to

http://www.golfbidder.co.uk/Images/products/320/P1132389.jpg

Also the Cobra Pro MB which I have and love and the new Adams MB which I'm trialling.

Yep, can't understand why the Mizuno TP range have been overlooked, some beauties in the like 9/18/19.

D4S good call on the TP 18's, a very underrated club that never gets much of a mention.

There was also a cracking set of bridgestone Rextar blades in the mid 90's but cannot find any pictures of them. Sweetest blades i've ever hit.

How about Maruman Conductors 41CX? Older than the average bear, but just about the most beautiful head I have seen (barring Bella of course). Erm

Shanks just seen some old photo's and they do look good mate. Check out the latest kit from them as there's a brilliant new Conductor series which has been around since 2007, but the latest release is great

Try the new Ping Forged "Anser irons"

Fantastic feel

I have ordered the new Anser forged wedges to match

I think they will be arriving in the next 2 weeks - an early Xmas present

I've just put the old set back into my bag. I've ordered the new grips, but even with 30 year old grips on them, I was hitting the ball rather well with them last night. Everything had a soft high draw. heart

Can't even consider justifying the cost of a new set, the ones that I've seen range from $3-6,000. A little bit eye watering for me.

Now if only I could find a putter that would stop my twitch!

Are these the ones you are talking about;

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Maruman-Conductor-41CX-Single-5-Iron-Graphite-Stiff-/140538109818?pt=Golf_Clubs&hash=item20b8b95f7a#ht_1509wt_1037

I have to say they look rather nice, although not sure about the graphite shafts on those examples. I mean really, graphite shafts on classic blades.

Those are the ones Mav - although they have missed the best view of them when looking down on the head at address. Drool And I agree about the graphite shaft, mine have a heavy duty vanadium steel shaft in regular flex. Supposed to give superior feel - don't know about that, I'm not good enough to assess it. However, I do know it gives a higher launch than I've been used to, which I like.

I've just sat here and stripped the old grips of my set in preparation for brand spanking new Lamkin tour series grips. Then I'll get out the groove sharpener and I'm ready to go.

I know it will never happen, but I'd like to have a blade with NO writing on it at all, just the beauty of the clubhead, without the vulgarity of branding.
These Mizuno 32's come pretty close.

Having looked through that list of irons, there is quite a contrast. Some beauties on there but also quite a few sets that I wouldn't be seen with even on a very dark night!

Looks wise, I'd go for the MP14's I think heart

s_r, a nice idea - i'm sure it will be tried at some point, pehaps when they start stamping the logo on to the clubface or hozzle instead.
i'm afraid my 32s have mizuno stamped behind the toe. still a nice club though.

I know these are not forged but the Taylor Made Tour Preffered TD blades were some of the easiest I have ever hit.

What would the poseurs do if that happened and how would you tell the difference between irons?

K, obviously you'd need a discreet number on there to tell which was which, but a sleek and pretty bare blade would look awesome.

A blade may be all right but any form of cavity iron looks odd to me without any marking.

I dunno K, there's a set of Bridgestone, J33 cavities which I think which are quite spartan and almost bereft of logo's. I think they look very nice indeed.
I think the more minimal they are, the more timeless they look and appear good over time. Some of the irons that are more garish or have "graphics of the moment" don't half look old and worn out after a few months.
Mizuno are quite good at understatement in their better players clubs, blade and cavity.

I may have struck on something here, perhaps a line of "Realist" blank irons in a shop near you soon!

The new John Letters range of cavities also bare minimum markings. Infact if you didn't know they were the finished articles of a very decent looking set of irons you could be mistaken for thinking they hadn't finished designing them yet

I'd certainly have a set of those in my bag if I used cavities

Super have a look at the Geotech N-16 Blade. Very hard to get in the uk but they crop up on eBay every so often.

I picked up a second hand set of these this year on ebay for £160 in the summer - a total bargain... I still suck though.

http://www.orkagolf.co.uk/golf/product.php?productid=450
These are the newest ones, they make very nice looking blades.

I think so mate! An eBay search brought this up

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GEOTECH-JAPAN-PROTOTYPE-N-16-FORGED-BLADE-IRONS-3-SW-KBS-TOUR-STIFF-MIURA-VEGA-/150696268606?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Golf_GolfClubs_JN&hash=item231632933e#ht_500wt_922

Not bad for £499 considering you get a gap and sand wedge.

What would the poseurs do if that happened and how would you tell the difference between irons?

Have to say I do love the look of those ZO blades from KZG.

Also the PS9 from orka lovely clubs.

Those Geotechs actually to bland if possible,

Try these bad boys, best looking clubs imo from any ofthe OEM's

Also should say I own a set and they are sublime

I've always liked the look of those Cobras, Mav... very nice indeed.

Quite similar to a set of TM Rac MB's I used to have, back in the days when TM made nice clubs.

I think the new TM forged are quite nice looking too, the 20p piece in the back of it may put some off though.

They feel the dogs danglies to when you use them, recently been trialling these, because I liked the look

But as well as they perform and I would recommend them to anyone that plays serious golf, (in fact SR and I have been conversing about them quite a bit) I cannot say I am able to part with my CObra Pro-MB for any club on the market they are that good

RR:

They are very nice and thats why I thought why not try them, and they are great problem is a)they're designed to rust! b) At the moment I can't find anything better than I have for my game.

Just see these buy it now on eBay £499

Hmmmmmm rusting, even though they may perform superbly when rusty, it's like buying a Ferrari and letting it turn into a rust bucket. You want your sleek looking blades to look exactly that.

My brother hasjust purchased these clubs, and have to say the odd looking weight in the back really looks weird.. Personally don't think they look all that either
