16 posts in this topic

Hi all, they tell me Mizuno don't do 2 irons anymore.

i have got my hands on a MP67 2 iron, new, but apparently no more 2 irons in the MP 68 or any other mizuno iron.

can you guys get these still in the USA?

yes tried global golf + 3 balls etc

They don't make 2 irons in any of the current sets, not in the US at least.

you could get a 3i and get it bent, that'd affect the bounce though.
You might be able to get one with extra bounce if you really wanted one.

Mizuno doesn't make any 2-irons. Some brands, like Nike or Titleist, sell a two iron of their player's forged cavity back iron.

This is correct, Mizuno does not make a 2 iron for their current line of clubs. The MP 67 and MP 68 are very similar, I don't think you would see a difference in setup if you used the MP 67 2 iron.

I had a MP 52 set where the guy ordered a 3i 1/2" long, and bent to 2i loft, that would work.

I have vintage irons that a solidly struck 2-iron is about the same flight and distance as a newer 3 or even 4 iron. But I'm hitting a 2-iron, so I rock! A strut around the teebox like a peacock loses something when my 2-iron has a 3 stamped on it.

Dude, I love your sense of humor.

yeah, your right. MP 67 V MP 68 not much difference.

still it would have been nice to get a matching set.

I've played FLI HI 2 and 3 irons which I liked to go along with my Mizuno MP 68 5-PW set. Enjoyed previous set of MP 37s, but the 3 iron was impossible to hit and I read many other posters who played the 37s say the same thing. Love playing blades and I'm pretty good with around a 4 handicap with my 68s. In this day age there is much better equipment options than playing a true blade 2 iron though IMHO. Its a toss up between which club I prefer between my FLI HI 2 iron vs new Mizuno MP 20 deg hybrid or MX 700 17 deg hybrid. FLI HI 3 iron has large cavity back and is giant compared to the size of the 37 3 iron. Living in Colorado though I know I'll prefer the hybrids on cold weather days. From 225 yds out the 20 deg hybrid is more consistent than the FLI HI, but it is not as easy to stop on a green. If you play fast greens you'll stop the 2 iron better than the hybrid. Miss hits more common with the 2 iron, but don't get the occasional snap hooks OB like still possible with a hybrid.

Apparently the guy is not a 36, he said in another thread that he put 36 on purpose in his profile…

I put 36 in my profile (Not a real handicap, I haven't had the chance to play enough on rated courses since it's so expensive here in Japan) and I hit my 3 iron fine, and I am musing getting a 2 iron for kicks and fun. (before you jump at me, I hit the 3 iron fine but I can't hit my 4 wood or my driver to save my life. And no, I am not a long hitter either, 3 iron goes 195~200 yds ttl but it feels hella good on impact and that's why I stick with it –I take very regular lessons, though.)

I had a 2 iron in my old Cleveland TA-5 set years ago. Of the dozens of times I pulled it out of the bag on the course, only 2 or 3 worked out well. To hell with 2irons, give me an 18* hybrid...

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
