If that is the one which my #4 idol is using , then yes I tried it once. (Disclaimer: I only tried the PW and my talent is as good as negligible...so everyting I state is worth almost negligible)

Tried that last week at SSN on 3rd flr. Its quite easy to get good contact which I think must be likely due to the club head. Feedback wise, I cant tell between my CG gold and this...

Just came back from Taka's Golf House, they have a set of Adams Black CB2 for sale. I couldn't find the price tag but saw that they are offering 15% discount. If any of you are keen, might be worthwhile to go and take a look.

Also, I might be selling off my 4 months old Adams black forged MB. Been to 1 green and less than 3 ranges with this set. I'm already not a good ball striker but this set is too unforgiving...just makes me depressed... Crying or Very sad.

I have seen it at Taka. Not sure about Suntec. Price-wise...eh.....not so cheap la.

Anyway, if you like a tour-issued set, JonL_TK is selling a set. He mentioned ono so good luck.

http://www.golfrepublic.org/marketplace-f8/wts-lotsa-things-part-2-t8639.htm

Have hit them at a demo day in US quite a while ago. In fact, I tried the MB, CB1, CB2 and they all came with KBS shafts as stock option. Very sweet, easy to hit. I hit it off a grass range too and they were much easier and felt better than the i15 and the Callaway Diablo Forged which part of the problem was very likely the shaft they were fitted on.


Slightly off-topic:

The MBs were much more forgiving than I thought they would be. I have 4 sets of blades now.

Adams Pro Black MB
Callaway X Prototypes
Mizuno MP68s (6-P)
Ikasu Forged Blades

Here's how I would rate them.

Forgiveness
Adams > Callaway X Prototypes > Ikasu > Mizuno

Softness and 'Sweetness'
Ikasu > Mizuno > Callaway X Prototypes > Adams

Ball Flight ( Low to high )
Ikasu > Mizuno > Callaway X Prototypes > Adams

Price (Base on how much I paid for them)
Adams > Callaway X Prototypes > Ikasu > Mizuno

You basically get what you pay for.

Nice comparison with other blades...

I was using TM 300 which I had been using for the last 3 yrs and I bought the Adams set while in US earlier this year, I liked the blackened look...shafted it to PX but after 2-3 ranges and 1 green, I find my ball striking is always missing the sweet spot, no buttery feeling.

I put my hands up, it's the golfer, not the clubs...my skills not good enough to handle these clubs. Might be planning to sell it off and contribute a little as donation to the GR Charity Golf event.

I think before you hang those up, u might wanna consider a shaft change? What made you change to PX in the 1st place?

Ask the big buaya here ZX. After rocking PX 5.5 in his AP2s, he hit my set during SSN and immediatelcy went and reshafted his set of irons.

I must admit these were quite clicky but its still passable to me.

Of course, I'm not saying these clubs will be the same as an SGI after that but sometimes, it could be a variety of factors why the sweetspot is eluding u.

PS, Those TM 300s are keepers if they were the Muira-forged ones. Not all were though so check before you decide to sell them (if you haven't already).
