I'll be honest with you, I feel like I really need to throw everything I believed about irons in the "game improvement" category out the window. Quickly. The Mizuno MX-300s changed my mind about what a game improvement iron should be and how a game improvement iron should feel. And this is coming from someone who thinks the constant Mizuno praise gets a little old sometimes.
Don't get me wrong, there is no doubt that Mizuno is one of the top iron makers on the market, and has been so for a while. Every time I tried a set, I walked away impressed with the looks, the feel, and the performance. It's just that Mizuno has a somewhat rabid fan base, and though their love for the forged iron maker undeniably justified, I'm the kind of person that's maybe best described as "anti-hype" and therefore, I tend to stay away from the things everyone hypes too much. I guess I like to be different. Still, when I was given the opportunity to review the newest irons in Mizuno's MX series, I was more than happy to oblige. I knew that I was in for a treat, especially since I remembered thinking their intention to blur the line between player's iron and GI iron was pretty interesting back in October, when I covered their release.
