If you otherwise like the MP-57s, you might consider softstepping 3i through 5i.

In softstepping, you place the shaft tip-trimmed for the next lower iron into each iron head. (2i shaft into 3i head, 3i shaft to 4i head, 4i shaft into 5i head). Then you would butt-trim the shaft to proper length.

What this does is lengthen the thin portion of the shaft by a half inch, which makes it play 1/3 flex softer, and gives the ball a bit more lift on impact (slightly higher launch).

Cost would involve removing and reinserting the shafts ($10 to $15 a club), and the cost of a new shaft tipped for 2i. A good time to do this would be in late fall, right before you get your irons regripped for the next season.

Modern flighted shafts produce an effect similar to softstepping in the long irons.

I think the i20 graduated set from long irons to scoring clubs is the best blend of forgiveness and precision for my taste. Try a bunch out and see what you like.

Find something Mizuno-forgiving that is still handsome.

+1 on H4. I just purchased a set of MP64's and added the H4 4i. The sole is fairly wide/large and gets progressively smaller with shorter irons. These would blend in perfectly with your set.
