MIzuno Releases MP-15 at Open Championship

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 

I didn't see this coming.  Not much information or any official press release just yet aside from this link.

They look excellent and look like they are going to replace the MP-59.  The titanium insert and design looks like there's going to be a lot of perimeter weighting which obviously means more forgiveness while still looking like a players iron.

 

Should be interesting!

Lol!! There's a very good chance you'd never be able to tell between a forged and a cast iron...

More like a virtual certainty. :-P

Other than the shiny finish, they look a lot like the new Cally Apex Pro irons.

Correct, pretty much NO chance....

They do.  I'm very curious about the forgiveness while still being a "players"  MP iron.  This will probably be a replacement to the Mp59 and more forgiving.  One thing about Mizuno, I love their irons but man do I dislike their naming sequence.

I would say that on center hits there is hardly any difference. I would claim more difference is made with the type of grip you use, and the type of golf shaft installed. A lot goes into feel. 

 

Though, I will say that on off-center hits, more forgiving clubs are softer. Just because the sweet spot is bigger, so it naturally will feel like a more solid hit. That is the reason I like less forgiving irons, I can really tell if I toed one or not.

If casted and forged iron are the same, how do you explain this:

Good marketing......aimed at people who are generally ignorant about the process by which irons are made. 

 

Given a quality forged club and a quality cast club of the same type, very few if any people can tell the difference.  They're simply different manufacturing processes that ultimately accomplish pretty much the same thing.

 

By the way......I play high quality forged irons too.

I personally don't think that you can feel a difference at impact between a forged or a casted club. But I don't know if they sound different at impact and how much this sound really affects the player...

Does anyone have any history about Mizuno? I really like the looks of their clubs seen the commercials ect.
But the last I have heard of Mizuno since recently in golf was...that was the baseball bat I used back in Jr. High

It's a long shot, but maybe if you typed "Mizuno history" in Google you'd get some results. Unlikely, but possible.

Do you have a friend who has  computer? Maybe they could do that for you if you wrote them a letter asking.

Otherwise, some kind member will surely type out a few pages for you. :loco:
