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.

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
