Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

What are your comments and experiences on the MP Fli Hi (not the CLK)? Would a high handicapper benefit from it? Am looking for a 3 iron as my set didn't come with one and was advised that th MP Fli Hi would be a good alternative to my set's 3 iron. Would appreciate your inputs, thanks.

I've ordered the FLI-HI instead of the -57 3-iron. I'll let you know. My real objection to normal hybrids is just the look: I don't like the look at address of a small wood. It gives me little confidence. It should come in in a week or so, and after a week or two of having them, I'll post a full review of my thoughts on everything I bought, including the FLI-HI.

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

I just bought one yesterday, for the same reason: My set of Mizunos didn't have a 3 iron, so I got the 21* MP fli-hi. It felt great in the store, but I can't really give a review until it has gotten a better workout.

I'm a mid-handicapper and I certainly didn't have any trouble hitting it. It's probably a better choice than a regular 3 iron - I chose it because I don't have a rescue club and I'm hoping it will give some help for long shots out of rough and other tight lies.

Well, the verdict is in (OK, honeymoon verdict) - I love this club! I took it to the range this morning and gave it a workout, and it's a great club. Much more consistent for me than any 3 iron I've tried, but I can work the ball better than with a typical hybrid. The low screamer is a little tough with it, but I was never good at that shot. I get a nice strong trajectory with this club, and a solid shot just feels so nice!

Higher handicappers might want to try it first, but if you're comfortable hitting a four or five iron this club won't give you any trouble.

Hopefully our honeymoon grows into a long and happy marriage. It looks very nice next to our children, my MP 30's and MPT wedges.

As a bonus, it looks a lot like an iron so nobody notices that it's half-hybrid!

I am glad she has a twin for me!

One question: how is she at hitting out of rough? That's one area where I'm far more comfortable with a traditional hybrid over an iron. If the FLI-HI behaves nicely there, I may soon have another empty slot in my bag (where the Baffler is now).

Well, I tried a variety of different sloped lies on the range, but there isn't any rough to practice out of, so I'll have to spend some time with it on the course before I can say.

Sorry, this is actually what I meant to ask for Let us know.

I'll be letting us know in a few weeks... I ordered my irons a week ago.

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

I have an 18* Mizuno Fli-Hi, steel shaft with regular flex.

I got it cause I always played with a 2 iron growing up. I am still learning how to hit it properly but shure looks good at address. I still cant quite get used to a real hybrid.

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

I hit my 3 FLI-HI on the range today. Bad mats, bad balls, but hoo boy did I like it. I can't wait to hit it on a real range or in a real round.

Were you able to play it at the fairways already? How was it?

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

These sound pretty legit. I have been looking for a while now trying to find a hybrid i enjoy hitting and can hit well and just can't seem to find it. Might have to give these a shot. Any more info on these?

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

I can't seem to replicate my positive first experience (on mats) with any attempt on grass. I hit my irons, up to and including the 4-iron, great on the range and pretty well on the course, but the 3H from FLI-HI just isn't doing it for me. It's probably going back to the store via return policy, although the irons and wedges are staying with me!

Re: Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

got my MP Fli Hi 3 hybrid last week! Hit it on the range and it really is, at the start, difficult for a high handicapper to master but after a bucket (!!!!) of balls I got into the groove of hitting it. Its not as easy as the MX-900's 4 iron to hit (thats my only comparison as I dont have an mx 900 3iron to hit) but once i learned how to... I finally got to test it on the course yesterday and was impressed, although a couple of times , i buried it in the ground, and also hooked a few shots (but that was more me than than the club).

Landed on greens (210-220) where i normally fall short, though mishits are not as forgiving as that of a G10 of the same loft. Still, I do like the club.

Its going to stay in my bag but it really needs a lot of work to get used to it.
