Why am I told I won't be able to hit a MB

This is an old thread, maybe you have already made your choice.  For most of us we score with our short game.  For my money nothing feels better than a blade from 150 yards in.  The long irons can be a challenge, hit one a little off center and you will know, but as you get better with the MB long irons they too feel great.  Just my 2 cents worth.  Good luck.
