Mizuno MP-100

13 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone out there is actually playing the 100th Anniversery MP-100's?



I am considering buying a set for actual play and some of the few reviews I've found on the internet of those that play them say they are excellent, and are simular to the MP-33's.


I currently play MP-37's which to me are the absolute best irons I have ever hit in my 35 years of playing, but they won't last forever, and I'm looking ahead to what I may go to next. Since I am biased and believe Mizuno makes the best forged blades hands down, my only current option(I'm not liking the "Cut Muscle" thing,,lol) are to move on to the MP-100's.


Has anyone actually hit them?



Thanks,
Parker

No, I haven't hit them. But from what I've heard they're similar to what you have (MP-37) instead of MP-33. Rather than using a collector set such as MP-100 which definitely will devalue them, I would surely get another set of MP-37. Unless if money isn't an issue for you.

As a Mizuno fan (and also biased toward it) I strongly recommend you to try the Cut Muscle on MP-32 or MP-67. They're the same Mizuno quality and feel but only more appealing and defined as I would call it. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info Fusioncal.

If they are more like the MP-37's like you said, that would be even better. I have considered buying a backup set of MP-37's for the future. I was just looking for feedback if anyone has played the MP-100's.

Well I pulled the trigger and bought a brand new set of MP-100's on ebay for only $490 and they arrived today. Now the question is do I really have the guts to actually hit them,,,lol! I will say yes because I payed so little for such a quality iron, and besides, 15 years from now when my kids are in college it's not like I will be able to sell them to pay for thier education.


Irons of this quality were made to be played.
I'm a "Player" not a "Collector",,lol!!

Brand new MP-100 for $490? You've got yourself a great deal there!

I wouldn't have the guts to hit them either if I were in your shoes. If I wanted great quality irons to play with I would've bought either MP-33, 37, 32 or 67. That Mizuno MP-100 is meant to be placed in trophy room. I desperately urge you to think twice whether or not to hit the MP-100.

This is my take, in the end, looking at them doesnt do anything for me. Really what kind of value can you expect them to be at 20-25 years from now? Of course nobody knows for sure. My new MacGregors are so beautifull I didnt want to hit them, but I mean spending $500 for them to sit there doesnt do anything for me personally. I would though HATE myself for having hit them, but id get over it.

That's pretty much my take on it also. I was looking for a set of "NEW" irons. I know some may feel that I could have went for a set of MP-33's, of which they no longer make so if you are lucky to find a new or immaculate set of MP-33's they want a lot more than $490 for them. Wolverine, I have to say that the new MacGregor Pro-M irons are awfully SWEET Looking!! If I wasn't a diehard Mizuno man I would have definitely bought a set of those. I played a set of MacGregor MT blades back in HighSchool in the early 80's. The new MacGregor's have a classic look to them,,,very nice. I hope they hit as well as they look for you?

I've played MP100's since 2008. Had Mizuno T-Zoid's before these and Hogan Apex before the Zoid's. I love the look and feel of the MP100's. Just when I think I'm too old ( 60 ) or don't have the game anymore to play these, I'll hit a few of those shots you don't even feel and remember why I bought them. Think I'll keep them. Buy them, throw away the display case and go play!

I don't know what the big mystery is about. They're identical to MP-33's, just rebadged.

    • He started off playing the first hole exactly how he should: fairway, 20-footer for birdie to the fat side of the green, tap-in par.
    • @iacas-Tho it is nice to be able to take your time and type out what you mean to say this is one of the downsides to a forum too-You have to respond to a whole bunch of crap and a person can get all of their thoughts out uninterrupted. If you were been sitting in a room with @natureboy and he started drawing that entirely stupid picture with the lines you could have cut him off and spared all of us the pain of having to watch him so badly miss the point. I bet @natureboy is still going to look at the response-And I bet he is still not going to see where he went wrong. But that is because he is just that way and he is unable to see how stupid his own posts are and how little they actually deal with golf swings. His stick drawing is exactly why you asked for a video-Even though he posted it after you asked. His errors and flaws and stupid thoughts would have been even more evident if he had actually tried to make a vid.
    • Or… golf is hard, and he got hot for awhile. Wouldn't be the first flash in the pan. We'll have to wait to see what the true version is. He could be quiet for ten years and then win a few majors.
    • That makes a great third bullet point. Or a first bullet point, bumping my two down.
    • This photo and the text above illustrate pretty well exactly why I and the entire moderation team is now done with you. The image fails on two levels: The center image is not representative of an actual good golf swing. The right hip is closer to the right foot in the center image, yet you maintain that it's farther away. Whether the second thing is done intentionally or accidentally I don't know. I don't care to know. But it's very representative of how you argue, and why you're now going to be prevented from arguing. You pervert arguments to the point where we're no longer discussing the golf swing. You get basic facts or concepts wrong (like when arguing about course rating, misunderstanding the radius vs. diameter in faulting the rating process for higher handicappers). You focus on some small thing - which often isn't even something anyone else has said - and lose sight of the forest or the big picture. You're not here to help golfers. You're here to "win" an argument, a goal that as yet is unmet, and you have to post absolute crap like the above to try to do it. I had a bit of free time this morning. So I responded to your last post in some detail. It, as one would expect, contains a number of typical @natureboy traits: cherry picking a photo while ignoring the concept, failure to understand basic points, perversion of the statements of others, putting words in the mouths of others, use of vague words like "a lot" (often in combination with the "putting words in the mouths of others), and hyper-focus on some small largely negligible point. Nobody else should waste their time to read the below, or open the spoiler and read that. It will not shed light on anything, it will not help you with your golf swing, and you will not glean any useful information. It exists simply as my last effort at illustrating to @natureboy a small part of the reason why we're tired of him… even though as I post it I know with certainty it too will fail. I gave you twenty warning points last night. It was made clear to you what you had to do, and you failed to do so, flaunting the requirement in several posts. The entire moderation team - @mvmac, @RandallT, @boogielicious, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @mchepp, others - and myself have simply gotten sick and tired of your entire persona here. You're constantly and never-endingly arguing stuff to the point where you bastardize things so much you're no longer even talking about the golf swing, and you fail to comprehend or respond to what's written to you in response. You have two real choices once your current suspension is over: You can ignore these warnings, continue to be a belligerent arguer, and receive a final 50-point warning that will result in your permanent ban. You can avoid behaving in the manner that infuriates the entire moderation team. That will likely mean limiting the topics in which you post quite a bit, because though you fancy yourself to be capable of discussing the golf swing from a theoretical perspective, you've proven that you are not. Now, I want to be very clear about something. You're not being warned or "handled" because you disagree. You're being handled here because you contribute nothing positive. You're belligerent. You don't help people. You don't demonstrate anything. You pervert and distort topics in order to make a point that often has little or nothing to do with how people actually play golf. You're on a mission to "win" an argument, not to further the understanding. You speak as if you know and fail to ask questions, despite the holes in your logic and posts being constantly exposed as gaping. You quite often fail to read what's written, take a beat, and try to understand it. P.S. This requirement is anything but arbitrary. The list of reasons are long, the surface of which was only scratched in this post. Arbitrary would have been to say something like "to continue posting here you must dress up in a purple outfit and post a photo of yourself diving from a diving board into a pool of jello." Asking you to post a video illustrating your point is the opposite of arbitrary.
