Title: Epon 25* loft iron to blend with Epon AF-Tour MB
Post by: ian-500 on August 21, 2019, 03:28:46 AM
Epon AF-Tour MB's have a 4i at 25* loft. If I were to replace it with something slightly more forgiving, which would you recommend; 901 25*/903 23* bent to 25*/703 6i bent to 25* or something else.......303 or maybe a 503? The newer irons are a little too expensive, so 305/505/705 are out.

Either option should be fine. Just remember that if you go with the 23* and bend it weak to 25*, you will reduce offset and add bounce, but 2 deg shouldnít be a problem.
I have a set of Tour MBís. I play the 4 iron, but I have an AF-903 23* that I have bent to 21.5* and it works a treat.
Good luck.

PS: are you playing the latest version of the MBs? I have struggled to find any meaningful reviews of them and would be keen to hear what you think.

I have the MKI, not the MKII. These were in such good condition I couldn't say no. And Satin finish too. I think I will either go AF-901 25* or Srixon ZU85 26*. I've recently damaged my ankle so won't be playing for a little while which is SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!  >:(

Nice!
I have mine in Satin finish too. Iíve been using them for 4 years now and would have a hard time replacing them with something else.
IMHO, still the best blade for a combination of feeling and playability.

I have a 502 5-iron sitting all alone in the basement. Not sure about the specs though.

If you are interested, just shoot me a pm.

It's awesome.
Some people called it "player" but I think it's as easy as 901 to hit.
