Here is a question that I need some help with...... I am looking to buy a new set of irons as I have previously posted, I am currently playing the Mizuno MP-23, but it was recently brought to my attention that Mizuno's are generally a harder club to hit than a lot of other clubs out there. Is this true? I am by no means a "good" golfer, I am average at best and was wondering if I should be looking into a more "forgiving" set? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It all depends on the model. Mizunos have a wide range of clubs. They vary from those that help out a beginner to the ones used by single digit handicappers. I'm sure you could find a model that fits your needs.

would have thought miz and titleist would be the top. didn't think I would see callaway up there that high. I'm not good enough so I make up with it by being an aethstetic golfer and have to have matching clubs (cept putter, I'm not stupid that much) so I don't use mizunos because the woods game up until lately hasn't had much to offer for the average golfer. I like colors which, yes I know it's a bad habbit. Thus I like pings g10 offerings. I like the orange...I follow the I'm not great but I can look good being bad. Might have to wait and see how the new mizzy woods and hybrids do with people and give it a shot. (no pun intended)

My first set after my wal-mart specials were callaway fusion's and I have no reason to change. Maybe to the Ft's but I feel like it's marketing at play and there's no real reason to upgrade. I just started golfing (more than once a year) last year and I get out 2-3 times a week now because I'm in love with the game. I have considered downgrading to a more GI-based set but I have read that the fusions are fairly easy to hit in comparison to other PI irons.

I just got an FT-IQ (upgraded from my FT-3) as well and wow...just wow.

So, I went oput and spent the last week demoing different sets of irons! After hitting everything from the Titleist AP - Callaway X-22 and everything in betweeen I decided to go with the new TM Burner! It was the club that felt the best for me! So now I will be a mizuno lover converted to Taylormade. But all you guys/gals were right get out and hit as many as you can and find what is best suited for you!

Tell me about it. Ive had several instances on the course where people have seen my Mizuno bag full of Mizuno clubs and instantly assumed that Im some kind of great player.

There is an interesting stigma to that effect. The same way that when people see a bag full of muscleback irons, people assume that player is a good player/good ballstriker. I've played with plenty of hacks who can hardly get their blades airborne, however. I've also played with a lot of very good players who play no-name game improvement clubs. It's the old book by its cover, indian not the arrow lesson, time and time again. On that note, I chose Mizuno. I've played Hogan's, Titleist and Mizuno (most recently) and I'll be sticking with Mizuno. I could be talked back into playing Hogan's, but since they're not really a brand anymore I won't be doing that. Titleist makes a nice looking set of irons too, but for me the feel doesn't compare. A pleasant click at impact, but they don't seem to have the broad range of feeling that my current set has. It's all about finding what looks right/feels right and what performs well in your hands, regardless of what your competitor or the guy on tour is playing.

I really liked those irons too and they should be in tomorrow or something. I am not a gear ••••• for any company but the entire set felt great. Obviously very good golfers are going to want something else. But the short irons offered a lot of feel still while the longer ones were easy to hit deep and straight. The entire set felt clean and well designed. I like what they did with those irons, the entire "progressive" system. IMO, they were the best GI irons made this year.

Actually, I was kinda shocked I was buying Taylor Made irons, lol.

I voted for my Mizunos (very old school MP11s). The only irons I've ever owned that I didn't like to hit were Rams (I had two sets - one good one bad), Pinseekers (cut into the ground like shovels), and MacGregor MT tour blades in the early 90s - I really wish I'd had the lofts and lies done on the MacGregors - they were the most beautiful irons I've ever seen. My Hogans take 99.99% focus on every shot - but oh do they ever reward a good shot!

For me I can really only vote for Callaway right now.
When I started golfing I picked up a cheap set of Dunlops. After that I managed to get a great second hand deal on '02 Bertha Irons and an S2H2 3 wood.
They've worked for me, and although I have hit other clubs, I haven't hit any others enough to form an opinion to stray me away from mine.
I'm considering a change this winter for next spring, so between now and then I'll see if my opinion changes.

I currently use Hippo ITX2 irons and woods. They were cheap, but since I'm fairly new to the game I didn't want to invest in expense clubs until I had gotten the feel for things. Right now I'm debating between a set of Mizuno's and Ping. I figure by the time I save up the money and talk my wife into it, I'll have figured out which ones to go with.
