Mizuno TP and MP Timeline

3 posts in this topic

A few years ago I sold a bunch of old blades from my garage, Wilson Staff Fluid Feel, Mizuno TP-9 and TP-11. At the time I sold those I did some research at internet and bumped in to a nice website showing the timeline of Mizuno TP clubs and some of the start of MP clubs.

I used to play TP-9 for quite some years, which was a difficult muscleback with some extra weight in the sole, helping for a higher trajectory and switched to TP-11 also played by Sandy Lile at the time he won the Open, with a Sandy at the 18th.

Now I am a Mizuno man once again, I was looking for this info again, but nowhere to be found.

I know Mizuno USA has a history, but not very accurate .... TP-9 (1999-2000????), while I think TP-9 was more like in the mid 80's.

Any Idea's !

I google Mizuno mp33 irons and found this site called Sand Trap:
If you google mp-9 you will find some results also.

**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)
Mizuno Retired Clubs;=61

Please let me know if there are any I missed.

Well I used to play the TP series, which were prior to the MP series....... there were lots of TP models, TP-9, TP-11, TP-Z, TP-2000 etc,

TP stands for Tour Proven, I don't know why it went from TP to MP.

TP-9 would be something like the current MP-68, quite difficult to use, but lots of power behind the ball........ I hope I still had these, two weeks not at the range ... a disaster, but they really went low and far when hit pure, with that climbing trajectory.
