I apologize if a similar thread like this already exists, but I have a question about different styles of irons and what they are designed to do. I recently purchased a combo set of 718 cb’s and mb’s. I played AP2’s prior. When listening to a podcast by MyGolfSpy, they stated that why would anyone play a set of blade irons when so much technology exists to aid in forgiveness/distance on mishits. Now I totally understand this way of thinking, but I am wondering if my thoughts were shared by others. I feel like I can get more feedback from a mishit with a “blade” than a more forgiving iron. With that being said, I also feel as though I can work on things to be a better ball striker and hit the center of the face using this feedback. I don’t want to rely on a forgiving club to “bail me out” of bad contact. Not that it matters, but I play at a 4 and hit the ball pretty well, so I am not using these clubs to learn the game by any means. Any thoughts?

I gave up trying to play blades. They're way beyond my ability. I'm just having too much fun hitting the 718 AP1's. I'm still getting used to the distance changes. I wouldn't knock anyone gaming blades when I hit them on the money just felt amazing but like someone said I can't do it for 18 holes.
