Mizuno Iron Comparison

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm gaming the TZoid Pros, and was wondering how the newer Iron models compare to the feel of these. I'm looking to get a newer set soon, and may look into their GI irons like the MX200s, or stay with a muscle type, depends on how I hit each.

FWIW a saw where Golfsmith, a few weeks back, had new old stock Mizuno MX23s in steel for $300. That's an awesome deal on an awesome set of irons. JMHO they are just as good and much more appealing to the eye than the MX200s. Not that you would go wrong with those either.

I love the Mizuno Mx 23's. Used to hit the Mp 30 those are not bad either. Cant go wrong with Mizuno irons.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I used to have the T-Zoid Pro 2 irons and loved them. I have hit the MP 30-32-57-60-67 in the past, either as demo clubs or just hitting a friends club. It is my opinion that a good sweet spot hit on the T-Zoid is no different than a sweet spot hit on any of the others I listed. As with most Mizuno clubs the feel at impact is great. I have not hit anything in the MX line so I can't really compare them to those. If you are wondering about anything in the MP line I would say that if you hit the T-Zoids well, you should do fine with any MP. Especially the 57 or new 52. So if you like the T-Zoids, the MPs will have just as good or possibly even better feel.

I haven't quite made up my mind on whether to stick with more of a blade or go to maybe a mid-cavity and see if that helps my game at all. It depends on how they hit, but definitely will stay with Mizuno.

Thanks. I've played the Tour B330s and really liked them lately and was thinking I'll pick up a dozen RXs and a dozen tours and try them out against each other.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I purchased my first set of Mizunos at the begginning of this season, and I love them. I was originally looking at the MX-200 but I went to a golf expo and saw the MX-25 for about 300 less so I bought them. I dont think I will ever purchase a different brand iron.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I played the Mizuno T-Zoid Pro for 7 or 8 years and just switched to the MP60, the only reason I switched was my wife wanted to get me a set of clubs for my 50th bday last year. I did not try the MP 62 as they came out just after I bought my clubs but I really liked the MP 60, MP 67 and MP 32. I was not a big fan of the MP 57 or the GI irons from Mizuno, but that is more of a personal thing, as I really struggle trying to hit any GI irons.

To me, the MP 57 was to big of a club head, I like a little more compact head, so the MP 60 fit my eye. I have handled the MP 62 in the stores and to my eye they setup and look like the 60, only the cavity has changed so I can't imagine they would be any different then the MP 60 in playability

Oh yea, and I love my MP 60's.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I've been switching back to my T-Zoids to start off my season going a little easier on myself than the MP-33s I normally play. There is definitely a difference in forgiveness. In terms of playability, T-Zoids are on average a degree stronger, so it goes an extra couple of yards. There is a slight feel difference even between these Mizunos, granted, MP-33s are perhaps the best feeling blades ever made. The only major downside are the short irons, I prefer the blades for a crisp chip here and there.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I just ordered a set of the 52's with the MP Fli Hi in 2-4. I can't wait to get them! I like the cavity of the mid-long irons and the almost blade like of the scoring irons. I am hoping these will help improve my game. Every time I have hit these clubs, I was able to work, aim, and control them with consistancy.

As for the ball, I agree that the Bridgestone 330 RX is a great choice!

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I think I may go mp52, because it's not a true blade and seems to have forgiveness that I need. I'll hit the 67s just to feel them out, though, along with any other sets available.

I must say that the responsiveness of the 52s was amazing. Just the slight change in grip (weak-neutral-strong) had the desired effect (fade-straight-draw). Plus, the accurracy and consistancy was such a confident builder!

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

I play the MX 25s (10 handicap) and I'm happy with them. I like the 200's a little better, but you can get great deals on brand new sets of the MX 25s, I think I paid about $350 for mine.

I don't really have a problem working the ball with the 25s. Eventually I'll probably upgrade to the 52s, but at an 17 handicap you may want more forgiveness than that.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

Recently traded in x20's for a used set of mp67's with 6.5 rifle flighted shafts and am hitting at the flags like never before. I will never use anything but a mizzy from now on.

Right now, I'm not as worried about working the ball off the face as much as I am controling it. I have my Tzoids down to where I don't really slice them much, but I can control fade if I need it. The draw isn't there, but I've got them on a bit of a straight pull with a tiny hook that can play almost as a draw. That's why I'm looking away from the 67s and full on musclebacks, I need to get my shot control down better. Will the 200s or 52 play well for me once I get my striking where I want it, or will I need to upgrade at that point. If so, I may just get the blades and work them into the bag club by club going up w-3.

This purchase is probably still a few months off, maybe even into this winter. First I have to get the big stick and putter replaced, as they are more pressing and my irons still play great. Hate to say this, but golf is one thing where money can buy happiness. Well sorta.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

Did you find the Mp 52's much harder to hit? I played the mx 20's a couple of times and found them easier than my titleist DTR's. I did a quick try of the 52's, 300 and 200 and didn't like them as much. The 20's felt heavier and more solid than the others. Should I take another try? Thanks.

Re: Mizuno Iron Comparison

The new Mizuno irons are awesome. The MX-200 or MX-300 are so easy to hit well and still offer pretty good feel and feedback. Theyre far superior to T-Zoid Pros.
