The Grad MP is not on your list.

Additionally, the first irons Mizuno produced were not known as "MP." The series was recognized as "MS" and began with MS1. It debuted in 1984 and ran through 1991 as the MS9.

There is also the special edition MP-100s, they looked awfully similar to the mp-67s, but those were out a few years ago.

The information about the MS and MP line dates back to 1983. I'm sure that there is something previous to this. However, as pertain to "blades" or "muscle backs", it is only 1983.

**Seems to be a type-o from the mizuno website. Mizuno has the MP-5 listed from 84-87 and the MS from 90-92. Looks as if these have been inverted as all the other MP versions were released after their MS counterpart. For this reason I have listed the dates as I think they should be.

See the picture of them all at this link

All info from the following two sites. (When dates conflicted I went with Mizuno's site)

Iron finder

Please let me know if there are any I missed.

Hi. I have a set of Mizuno Pro Originals which may be the first. I do not see a picture of it. I also know there were 3 markets ... Japan, Euro and USA .... so several were same heads with different numbers. The MS 7 is the same as TP 9 or 11. Also, for the guy that bought SS set on Ebay .... I would say they are the real deal. I have several unique sets and have been told by James at Mizuno USA there are many many variations and they had a custom shop as well so no one today really has the true history of all irons. Pretty sad really.

I'll try to post other odd sets .... just signed up for tis sight.

Best Luck.

Hi just been reading this thread as have 2 sets of Mizuno Pro MS-5 (3-SW).

I purchase the first set about c.1992 new and have used them to death thus buying the second set for £65.00 on ebay last year, 2007, cheaper than having my old ones regripped and they've only been used a couple of times.

Reason for posting is that the my MS-5's (both sets) look more like the MP-5 image that you have rather than the MS-5. I'm about 99.9% sure that these are original Mizuno clubs but found it interesting that there was some difference in the look of them.

Any thoughts?? I've looked on ironfinders.com and the Mizuno site and am still a bit confused as to the difference. I have to say that I'd never change from Mizuno irons. If I could buy another set of the same I'd be a very happy man!!

I've also got TP-15 Hot metals (1.5, 3 and 5) woods which seem to do the job better than some of these Bertha woods that I see other golfers using.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
