Just snagged set on ebay (too good a deal to pass up).  Any thoughts on them?  I know they're going to sweet when you flush them, but I'm a little hesitant about distance loss.  Any chance I replace my Razr X cavity backs?

Interestingly enough, on perfect strikes a flushed blade will go father than a GI iron.

I seem to remember a lot of posts from you over the last year or so on your inability to hit irons well.  So all I'll say is, good luck......

Great irons if you can hit the center of the clubface most of the time.

Id love to see some proof to back up that statement.

I bet the hilarity of that statement-What with the statements youve made over the past few years-flew right over your head.[quote name="GaijinGolfer" url="/t/71117/mp-32s#post_920466"] Id love to see some proof to back up that statement. [/quote]

Lessons are a curious thing.  Mixed with a healthy dose of dedication, practice, and a round or two per week, it's amazing how well someone who used to worry about topped and fat irons can strike the ball.

I have a set of them with super stiff KBS Tour shafts for training. I hit them into a net at home. Played with them a few times. No loss in distance or height, even though the shafts are way too stiff for me.

The cavity V back seems to make them more forgiving than my Cleveland CG tour. The top line is much thicker than normal blades, so I am guessing it is a form of game improvement "blade" if that makes any sense. However, my Ping i20s are much easier manage on the course, because toe shots are not punished as much.

It's out there. Blades tend to go a bit farther and have a tighter dispersion when struck directly on the sweet spot. There was a post a few years ago in one of the many "blades vs. cavity backs" threads (I think by Erik, but I'm not sure) with a pretty great chart, but it's going to take me a while to find it.

It's a big "if" for some of us. :-P

It helps me train, though so I know where to try to strike the face. The way I hit them, they go about the same. They used to go shorter, but that was because I hit the toe all the time.

There are several articles in on the web as well, this one comes to mind first.

Yup, that's the one I was thinking of.

Got them out on the range today (grass) and they are fantastic. Look great at address, soft at impact, FAR better turf interaction than my RAZR X's, and best of all no distance loss at all. Range is downhill so hard to tell for sure but possibly farther than the cb. Of course, a true mishit feels like crap. Question now is whether I'm missing out by play older clubs as oppee to new mizunos. What replaced the 32's?

Look up "Mark Crossfield". He is basically a golfing ad for Mizuno :-) .

Oh, and he has great on line pointers and tips.

Personally, the MP53 (???on the MP54) are close, but I like the heavy feel of the MP32. Like swinging a tank.

Why, because he likes Mizuno irons?  He also favors Nike woods, Ping hybrids and Titleist golf balls.  Funny, I dont ever recall anyone calling him a fanboy for those companies. :roll:

He pretty much gives a decent unbiased review on everything he tries. He does hold a special place in his heart for Mizuno though. It does feel like Mizuno can do no wrong in his eyes, but it isn't like he's bashing other companies. He does give credit were it is due.

Yes, doing a satire of Gorilla James is an unbiased review.

Seriously, though. I watched about ten of his videos, and started to get the idea that Mizuno clubs are the best. What was funny was that, I had never heard of Mizuno before that. I think it's the posters and the over-sized Mizuno golf bag sitting in the background in every one of his instructional videos that might have had something to do with it?

BTW, I do actually like my MP-32 irons, whether it was because of the subliminally implanted messages while watching his videos or the sweet feel of the clubs I'll never know. :-$

Oh, and when my ball striking gets good enough, I plan to purchase some new MP-54 or something like it from Mizuno (with KBS shafts, of course).

Maybe at first but not lately.  He hated the original JPX hybrids and in the case of the JPX-825s and JPX-EZs he clearly stated that if you already have JPX-800s that he doesnt see why youd upgrade.  I just always laugh when people call him a Mizuno fanboy.  If he had a full Mizuno bag, I could get onboard with that but its not like he thinks only Mizunos are good clubs and only uses Mizunos.

      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?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      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.
