Mizuno MP Fli Hi Hybrid Iron - Any feedback

73 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

What are your comments and experiences on the MP Fli Hi (not the CLK)? Would a high handicapper benefit from it? Am looking for a 3 iron as my set didn't come with one and was advised that th MP Fli Hi would be a good alternative to my set's 3 iron. Would appreciate your inputs, thanks.

Hi Guys,

I've ordered the FLI-HI instead of the -57 3-iron. I'll let you know. My real objection to normal hybrids is just the look: I don't like the look at address of a small wood. It gives me little confidence. It should come in in a week or so, and after a week or two of having them, I'll post a full review of my thoughts on everything I bought, including the FLI-HI.

I just bought one yesterday, for the same reason: My set of Mizunos didn't have a 3 iron, so I got the 21* MP fli-hi. It felt great in the store, but I can't really give a review until it has gotten a better workout.

I'm a mid-handicapper and I certainly didn't have any trouble hitting it. It's probably a better choice than a regular 3 iron - I chose it because I don't have a rescue club and I'm hoping it will give some help for long shots out of rough and other tight lies.

Well, the verdict is in (OK, honeymoon verdict) - I love this club! I took it to the range this morning and gave it a workout, and it's a great club. Much more consistent for me than any 3 iron I've tried, but I can work the ball better than with a typical hybrid. The low screamer is a little tough with it, but I was never good at that shot. I get a nice strong trajectory with this club, and a solid shot just feels so nice!

Higher handicappers might want to try it first, but if you're comfortable hitting a four or five iron this club won't give you any trouble.

Hopefully our honeymoon grows into a long and happy marriage. It looks very nice next to our children, my MP 30's and MPT wedges.

As a bonus, it looks a lot like an iron so nobody notices that it's half-hybrid!

I am glad she has a twin for me!

One question: how is she at hitting out of rough? That's one area where I'm far more comfortable with a traditional hybrid over an iron. If the FLI-HI behaves nicely there, I may soon have another empty slot in my bag (where the Baffler is now).

Well, I tried a variety of different sloped lies on the range, but there isn't any rough to practice out of, so I'll have to spend some time with it on the course before I can say.

Sorry, this is actually what I meant to ask for

Let us know. I'll be letting us know in a few weeks... I ordered my irons a week ago.

I have an 18* Mizuno Fli-Hi, steel shaft with regular flex.

I got it cause I always played with a 2 iron growing up. I am still learning how to hit it properly but shure looks good at address. I still cant quite get used to a real hybrid.

I hit my 3 FLI-HI on the range today. Bad mats, bad balls, but hoo boy did I like it. I can't wait to hit it on a real range or in a real round.

Were you able to play it at the fairways already? How was it?

These sound pretty legit. I have been looking for a while now trying to find a hybrid i enjoy hitting and can hit well and just can't seem to find it. Might have to give these a shot. Any more info on these?

I can't seem to replicate my positive first experience (on mats) with any attempt on grass. I hit my irons, up to and including the 4-iron, great on the range and pretty well on the course, but the 3H from FLI-HI just isn't doing it for me. It's probably going back to the store via return policy, although the irons and wedges are staying with me!

got my MP Fli Hi 3 hybrid last week! Hit it on the range and it really is, at the start, difficult for a high handicapper to master but after a bucket (!!!!) of balls I got into the groove of hitting it. Its not as easy as the MX-900's 4 iron to hit (thats my only comparison as I dont have an mx 900 3iron to hit) but once i learned how to... I finally got to test it on the course yesterday and was impressed, although a couple of times , i buried it in the ground, and also hooked a few shots (but that was more me than than the club).

Landed on greens (210-220) where i normally fall short, though mishits are not as forgiving as that of a G10 of the same loft. Still, I do like the club.

Its going to stay in my bag but it really needs a lot of work to get used to it.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
