im POSITIVE that you are good enough to play them! with their line big and small clubheads there is surely at least one iron to fit your game!

I'd love to have a set of forged irons...but with a bit of a cavity. I looked at a set of MP52's today....drooled over them is more accurate. I hit the 6 iron into a net for a while. Very nice feel.

One day in the near future I'll have more time. The guy in the shop told me to come by and check a couple of their sticks out and go to the course and play 'em. Different shaft choices to make. Things are sort of strained at work. If things pick up in the next couple of months I'll feel okay about dropping the coin on a set. Right now, though, it just doesn't seem like a good move. A number of folks were laid off from our job the other day....scary times. Where is their company based.....is a Japanese company???

I think the symbol is supposed to be a bird - specifically the 'road runner' (beep beep). Not sure of the significance, though. Maybe their clubs are the road runner and all other companies are supposed to be coyotes.

I love the feel and look of Mizuno irons. Even the game improvement clubs still feel good and do not look as gaudy as just about every other major manufacturer.

the symbol is a bird, and like alot of companies they got their start making shoes. they are popular shoes in japan but i haven't seen many in the states. they do make some of the best golf, baseball, and track stuff money can buy.

Yes, it is a 'Road Runner'. I won't wear any other shoe for distance running. They are not as popular as some, but I think they are better shoes. Kinda like their irons, not a big market share, but a better product none the less.

I'm quite partial to Asics. GT2130 is the way to go. I have Nike Indoor track shoes and they are pretty nice.

The Runbird logo used since 1983 by Mizuno's athletic division has been unveiled as the company's new corporate icon. The Runbird has replaced the 'M' logo, long associated with Mizuno's golf and baseball equipment. The Runbird was first originated in 1983 to more clearly distinguish Mizuno's running shoes from those of Adidas - whose 3 stripe design was similar to the original Mizuno 'M'. The Runbird was created from geometry representing the orbits of three planets, signifying the company's expansive view and freedom of thought. The design was later nicknamed the Runbird. Visible for the first time in Mizuno's golf business on the Tour Bag used by Ryder Cup star Luke Donald, the company has entrusted the Runbird to simplify its global identity after 100 years in business. The Runbird will be positioned to communicate Mizuno's reputation for technically advanced equipment across golf, baseball, athletics, football, rugby and its other specialist sports. Stuart Watson, European Head of Golf, Mizuno explained the changes, "From a global business viewpoint the logo change is essential - Mizuno's global icons like Luke Donald, Derartu Tulu (athletics) and Chipper Jones (baseball) will now be able to represent Mizuno and its values as a whole." "We've also been surprised how quickly we've adapted to seeing the Runbird on our irons and wedges. And early reaction to our recently launched MP-67 and MX-25 irons suggests that while golfers have noticed the logo change, their affection for Mizuno equipment is as strong as ever"

They responded to an e-mail I sent. I was checking on some shaft options and inquired about the symbol. Here is their response:


Hello,

Thank you for contacting Mizuno USA. Our new logo is called a Runbird, and it's a logo that was designed to communicate speed, agility, and strength. The logo was first introduced in our company more than 50 years ago and was introduced in our competitive running shoes. The Runbird design was first used as a functional design element, but became widely popular. Globally, it has been used for decades. We brought it in on a global basis to communicate the fact that we're moving ahead swiftly, with innovative designs, breakthrough technologies, and high performance for our consumers. Feel free to respond if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,

Mizuno USA

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
