Part of my question is for saving some $$. I always loved the clean looks of Mizuno MP57 irons. I get it, they are 12 years old. Yet, would the technology in their new irons make that much of a difference playing them vs the new irons? I would love to find a set and fit them for me with new shafts.

You’d probably see a difference comparing MP57’s with the JPX series. But I think if you’re going with fitting and new shafts you’d be due with the 57’s. As long as the heads are in good shape go with the 57’s if you like them.

Yeah, I don’t know how many advancements are made in an MP-57.  It’s basically a chunk of metal.  If that’s what u like, go for it.

It seems the advancements are more with players distance irons and game improvement irons where a lot has happened in 12 years.

This.

For me it doesn't make sense to get fit into a head that you have preselected (especially not current). I'd look for a set of 57s that already have shaft characteristics that you have found to work. You'd save so much money by doing this.

    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
    • I had a couple of rounds with one 6. Generally a three-putt by on par 5...even my best round was even par (everything was “on” that day), I had one birdie, one bogey on a par 5, with 16 pars the No-Sixes round is my white whale
