So it feels like I'm the only one playing any of these at this point. I know I'm not, but with offseason and everything, feels dead in this thread.

So anyway, the P7MC's really haven't been for many people from everything I've heard, and I didn't want them to be for me really.

They are though. I think about the MC (muscle cavity) name of them every time I'm out there, because they feel more like a muscle back than a cavity back. Weight behind the ball makes them feel so solid. It's a very satisfying feel, and solid isn't a word I normally use as a compliment. Crisp and solid with great feedback. They honestly remind me a little of my Rose Protos at impact. Anyway, net 73 today because of a drop, or they would have AGAIN played to cap. Something like a 75% rate if it had happened today, but closer to 2 out of 3 is impressive enough.

They're not going anywhere, anytime soon. Big, big fan of these little clubs.

Only 9 holes, but net par again with the 7MC's. Time to put them on the shelf for a bit, play some others, and let them come back sporting some shiny new black shafts for the long haul. :)

Hit the p770 7i again today. I still like it. Consistent with good feel. Sound is a bit muted. Compared to my mmc, the p770 is 1 deg weaker loft but a couple yards more carry and lower spin.

They're not getting a lot of love here so far, but most people who have tried mine have had pretty good success with them and I'm still loving the long irons. That 3i and I are buddies. (y)

Still no mb or mc to hit here, but I have this growing idea that I would love an mc/770 combo. I could even see adding in a p790 in the 4i or 3i slot.

I have some 7MB's I need to pick up that I ordered ages ago, but I honestly I have no idea what I'm going to do with them. The MC's are so good. Feel and numbers are just perfect for me. I don't really see a need to go to a true blade at the end for no real reason other than look. I'll probably just do some comparisons with them and then move them.

Just got fitted and ordered the P770s. Excited to see how they are out on the course. Should have them in early Feb.

How would you compare them vs. The X-Forged CB in terms of feel, sound and stability?

It just seems the equipment feedback is very quiet at the moment I guess everyone is waiting for all releases before opening up their wallets. The XFCB has less than a handful of mainstream reviews, which is really disappointing, would like to hear more. Checked local GT before current lockdown and still not in stores, hopefully we’ll see in the flesh by March.

I just got my p770 about 3 weeks ago. I put the amt tour white in there and absolutely LOVE them. I came from playing the ap2 716 and have gained a full club and a tremendous amount of accuracy. I'm a 3 handicap and average hitting about 5 to 6 greens per round (yea I know, its a glaring weakness). Since I put these in my bag, I have played 7 rounds. In these 7 rounds, I am now hitting 10-11 greens on average. They have made my misses SOOOOOO much better! Balls off the toe are holding their line and only losing minimal yardage. Not going to lie, these irons have helped make golf a lot more fun for me. I strongly recommend trying these out before purchasing any set of irons.

Yeah, they're not getting a lot of play from what I can tell, but I'm not really surprised by that. The MC's are definitely not everybody's cup of tee. I've passed mine around a little recently and there was a lot of appreciation combined with no's. lol

They're similar in looks in ways. More offset than maybe expected (less on MC's), more compact than most (more so with MC's), taller heels and narrower soles than some, etc.

Feels though, MC is more solid and crisp. They are noticeably more demanding. I've said it from the first time I tried them before they came out, that they're no joke. Muscle Cavity, not cavity back. They feel more like a blade, imo. X Forged is kind of other end on some things. Seems so much more modern with the cavity shape and weight placement. Sound is very good, but in a little different register, and you can feel that they won't punish you the same.

Stability is a tough one for me on these two. I really like how I would describe that with the X Forged so far. Really like. I haven't noticed any of the gear effects I don't always love. Feels very stable to me. It's hard to compare it to something as compact as the MC's though, with they're muscle shape on the back. I'd say they're both really good for how I think of stability, which isn't always the same as others. I had a weird thought about combo'ing the two of these the other day, that intrigues me, but I haven't had a chance to dive into it yet.

I had a video at one point of the MC sound out on course. I'm playing in a bit, but I'll look for it after. I cut one of the X Forged strikes but it didn't do a good job of showing what it was like, so I'll try another one in the future.

Mentioned it in the X Forged thread, but I swapped out the Apex MB's in that combo for the P7MC today, and really enjoyed it. Net par, and some really good shots. Just a big fan of those little irons. Really like some of the more blade-like qualities. Really easy to knock down and shape, very solid feel, crazy versatile.

I had kind of chickened out on the shaft swap because the new Apex were coming, but now having seen and read more about the release I think I'm going to go ahead and do it this weekend. Will be last chance for clubwork for a bit so I better get to it.

Haven't loved the sole transitions to my SM8's at the gap wedge though, and have really enjoyed the MG2 in some other setups lately so, I think I'll have to grab a steel finish 50* to go with them.
