What's the difference between Mizuno and Mizuno T-Zoid?


Recommended Posts

Got back into golf two years ago and bought a Callaway Strata set for $300 as I read a lot of good things about it for a beginner. The 8-iron is now broken though so I think it's a good time to finally get a better set of irons (that are still good for beginners as my handicap is still horrible). I came across someone selling 2nd hand Mizuno MX23s (iron set) for a bit over $200 and after reading some reviews online, I am thinking of making the purchase. I noticed though that the club head on the MX 23s he is selling looks different and has a T-Zoid logo on it. Would anyone know what the difference is between this and the ones commonly found online? And if it'd be a good decision to buy the clubs?

T-Zoid was just a version name that Mizuno used. They moved on to different names after that, but these are still forged irons. As for buying, I like Mizuno a lot. But as with anything golf, I would recommend trying them out first.

So would I be right in saying that the T-Zoid version of any Mizuno club should not be drastically different from the original version?

Definitely trying the clubs out so I know how they feel in my hands. The non TZoid version has some great reviews online for beginners so hopefully this club is the same.

Very similar. Most of their changes are minor tweaks in the forging.

Sorry, but if I sold my MX-23's to someone for over $200 I'd feel like I ripped them off.  They're pretty old so I'd try to find them for $125-150 if I were you.  Great clubs, but irons just don't hold value.

Thanks for the heads up. To be fair, golf club prices are in general elevated where I’m from (perhaps because buying online & having the clubs shipped from the US would come with high shipping fees + import fees). But yes, I’ll try to haggle the price down if possible.

My apologies, didn't know you weren't in the US.  Since I'm not sure what the going rate would be for these clubs in your location, I'd suggest maybe trying to see what similar clubs sold for on ebay or something like that and go from there.  Price just seemed high to me and would be even worse if they had old grips that needed replacement meaning you'd dump even more money into them.  Best of luck!

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.
