I have been thinking for a long time about changing out my longer irons 3-5 irons for more of a player iron. I have been gaming Mizuno MP32 for almost 10 years now and love them to death. I want to keep Mizuno in my bag. What are some popular combos for Mizuno blades that are maybe just a step down from blades? I want to keep them more in line with blade style vs bulky high handicapper irons.

Thanks!

I play MP-59 currently and they are fairly forgiving in the 4-6 irons. They have a titanium insert in the center which allows them to increase MOI by moving weight towards they heel and toe. I’ve played MP-60, MP-57 and have an MP-68 6 iron. I like the 59s better in the long irons. Short irons were fairly similar.

The JPX 921 tours with either the JPX 921 Forged or hot metal pro's. 

Personally I am not a big fan of mix sets. so I went with the forged set. waiting for them to arrive.

I'm gaming the 59's now also, I find the long irons harder to hit, so I ordered the JPX 921 Forged. hoping to game them soon.

I play the JPX 921 forged from the 7 iron down to  the gap wedge. I have a JPX 921 hot metal pro 5 and 6 iron. This set is absolutely prefect for me (3 and 4 hybrids).

I had that set for a while. I went to a Combo set with Srixon. Though I am thinking of dropping my 4 iron for another hybrid. I like the extra game improvement in the long irons.

Oh i will. I went true a fitting, I could have gone with the tours also, but these where just better with the slight off center hits, and because the slightly stronger lofts I could easy loose my 3 iron and go with my strong 3 hybrid ( Titleist 818H1 19 deg. set in D1 so actually 18 ) and 4 iron in the set, and get an extra wedge in. still waiting on the irons and wedges to arrive. I tested the taylormade P770 and Titleist T200. I could have tried ping and callaway also but with ping I just hate the look of the hosel, and well I was never a fan of callaway, so I didn't even bother hitting them. I did play with taylormade and Titleist irons in the past. I had the TP irons before my MP 59's my first new set of irons where the MP 32's.

But for irons I think it is just ones you had Mizuno you kinda stick with them.

I am hitting my hybrids further than I hit my irons, so I don't want more than a 3 hybrid, ones the new irons are in the bag I will prob move back to the A1 setting in my hybrid, it will be 19 degrees than over just 21 in the 4 iron. but because the hybrid goes longer it fits the gap

I start to really like the JPX irons, I played the mans competition yesterday and shot a 78. Could have been better but the concentration dropped near the end so I finished with 3 straight bogeys. it took me some time before I got used to the irons tho, I do hit them further than i hit the old ones, because of the stronger lofts I think, it doesn't fit my mind to hit a pitching wedge from 135yards out. makes me want those new wedges I ordered even more ( sm8 50,55,60). But I just love the irons, even when I am just off center the ball still goes, makes me much more precise on my approaches, I mean I still miss left and right but I am pin high a lot more.

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
