I'd love to have a set of forged irons...but with a bit of a cavity. I looked at a set of MP52's today....drooled over them is more accurate. I hit the 6 iron into a net for a while. Very nice feel.

One day in the near future I'll have more time. The guy in the shop told me to come by and check a couple of their sticks out and go to the course and play 'em. Different shaft choices to make. Things are sort of strained at work. If things pick up in the next couple of months I'll feel okay about dropping the coin on a set. Right now, though, it just doesn't seem like a good move. A number of folks were laid off from our job the other day....scary times. Where is their company based.....is a Japanese company???

I think the symbol is supposed to be a bird - specifically the 'road runner' (beep beep). Not sure of the significance, though. Maybe their clubs are the road runner and all other companies are supposed to be coyotes.

I love the feel and look of Mizuno irons. Even the game improvement clubs still feel good and do not look as gaudy as just about every other major manufacturer.

the symbol is a bird, and like alot of companies they got their start making shoes. they are popular shoes in japan but i haven't seen many in the states. they do make some of the best golf, baseball, and track stuff money can buy.

Yes, it is a 'Road Runner'. I won't wear any other shoe for distance running. They are not as popular as some, but I think they are better shoes. Kinda like their irons, not a big market share, but a better product none the less.

I'm quite partial to Asics. GT2130 is the way to go. I have Nike Indoor track shoes and they are pretty nice.

The Runbird logo used since 1983 by Mizuno's athletic division has been unveiled as the company's new corporate icon. The Runbird has replaced the 'M' logo, long associated with Mizuno's golf and baseball equipment. The Runbird was first originated in 1983 to more clearly distinguish Mizuno's running shoes from those of Adidas - whose 3 stripe design was similar to the original Mizuno 'M'. The Runbird was created from geometry representing the orbits of three planets, signifying the company's expansive view and freedom of thought. The design was later nicknamed the Runbird. Visible for the first time in Mizuno's golf business on the Tour Bag used by Ryder Cup star Luke Donald, the company has entrusted the Runbird to simplify its global identity after 100 years in business. The Runbird will be positioned to communicate Mizuno's reputation for technically advanced equipment across golf, baseball, athletics, football, rugby and its other specialist sports. Stuart Watson, European Head of Golf, Mizuno explained the changes, "From a global business viewpoint the logo change is essential - Mizuno's global icons like Luke Donald, Derartu Tulu (athletics) and Chipper Jones (baseball) will now be able to represent Mizuno and its values as a whole." "We've also been surprised how quickly we've adapted to seeing the Runbird on our irons and wedges. And early reaction to our recently launched MP-67 and MX-25 irons suggests that while golfers have noticed the logo change, their affection for Mizuno equipment is as strong as ever"

They responded to an e-mail I sent. I was checking on some shaft options and inquired about the symbol. Here is their response:


Hello,

Thank you for contacting Mizuno USA. Our new logo is called a Runbird, and it's a logo that was designed to communicate speed, agility, and strength. The logo was first introduced in our company more than 50 years ago and was introduced in our competitive running shoes. The Runbird design was first used as a functional design element, but became widely popular. Globally, it has been used for decades. We brought it in on a global basis to communicate the fact that we're moving ahead swiftly, with innovative designs, breakthrough technologies, and high performance for our consumers. Feel free to respond if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,

Mizuno USA

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
