I am looking for a Mizuno MP-57 2 iron ...... don't think it was made ?!?!????

Can allways deloft a 3i to 18* and add 0.5" to the shaft or deloft both the 3i and 4i maybe 1.5*, but I might be good to find a 2 iron (original).

I am currently using a Callaway Big Bertha Titanium/Tungsten .... it does what it has to do, but it really is a big shovel.

I am often told that I hit irons so well, that I feel they might be right...... it is a confidence thing, I tried Fairway Woods and Hybrids ..... not my cup of tea !!!

Besides that MP-33 is harder to hit in the long irons than a MP-57 ...... I tried the MP-67 2 iron, geeee very hard to hit.

But I got a hybrid with a DG S300 to try from a local clubfitter, as I am looking for a club to get some serious control and distance from the rough.

I always carried a 2 iron. They were useful off the tee on tight par fours and for me not any harder to hit than a 3 iron from the fairway. Nobody makes them anymore...i guess hybrids killed them off.

Being a MP-57 guy myself, I am pretty sure that a MP57 2iron was never made.

Well I really like the 3 iron, maybe I am going to buy an extra 3 iron and have it bend 1* to 2* stronger + 0.5" shaft to get the extra 12 yds.

There is no 2-iron made by MP-57s. But there are options:

Get an MP-57 3-iron, get the shaft longer (whatever the 2-iron shaft should be), and get the loft bent strong.

MP FLI-HI are basically a hybrid of an iron and a utility metal. They make a 2-iron in this.

I tried the MP Fli Hi 2 (20*) and it is not the same as an iron, not by feel and certaintly not by sound. I considered buying one of the older models in a 2 iron, like the MP-67 .... but most of what I could get my hands at, were not as "easy" to hit as the MP-57 ..... one of the guys offered a MP-32, but shipping costs might kill me from the USA.

Really eh? That's good to know about the MP Fli-Hi...I think bending the 3i and putting a 2i equivalent shaft into a MP57 is the best option

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
