Hi all, they tell me Mizuno don't do 2 irons anymore.

can you guys get these still in the USA?

They don't make 2 irons in any of the current sets, not in the US at least.

you could get a 3i and get it bent, that'd affect the bounce though.
You might be able to get one with extra bounce if you really wanted one.

Mizuno doesn't make any 2-irons. Some brands, like Nike or Titleist, sell a two iron of their player's forged cavity back iron.

This is correct, Mizuno does not make a 2 iron for their current line of clubs. The MP 67 and MP 68 are very similar, I don't think you would see a difference in setup if you used the MP 67 2 iron.

I had a MP 52 set where the guy ordered a 3i 1/2" long, and bent to 2i loft, that would work.

I have vintage irons that a solidly struck 2-iron is about the same flight and distance as a newer 3 or even 4 iron. But I'm hitting a 2-iron, so I rock! A strut around the teebox like a peacock loses something when my 2-iron has a 3 stamped on it.

Dude, I love your sense of humor.

yeah, your right. MP 67 V MP 68 not much difference.

still it would have been nice to get a matching set.

I've played FLI HI 2 and 3 irons which I liked to go along with my Mizuno MP 68 5-PW set. Enjoyed previous set of MP 37s, but the 3 iron was impossible to hit and I read many other posters who played the 37s say the same thing. Love playing blades and I'm pretty good with around a 4 handicap with my 68s. In this day age there is much better equipment options than playing a true blade 2 iron though IMHO. Its a toss up between which club I prefer between my FLI HI 2 iron vs new Mizuno MP 20 deg hybrid or MX 700 17 deg hybrid. FLI HI 3 iron has large cavity back and is giant compared to the size of the 37 3 iron. Living in Colorado though I know I'll prefer the hybrids on cold weather days. From 225 yds out the 20 deg hybrid is more consistent than the FLI HI, but it is not as easy to stop on a green. If you play fast greens you'll stop the 2 iron better than the hybrid. Miss hits more common with the 2 iron, but don't get the occasional snap hooks OB like still possible with a hybrid.

Apparently the guy is not a 36, he said in another thread that he put 36 on purpose in his profile…

I put 36 in my profile (Not a real handicap, I haven't had the chance to play enough on rated courses since it's so expensive here in Japan) and I hit my 3 iron fine, and I am musing getting a 2 iron for kicks and fun. (before you jump at me, I hit the 3 iron fine but I can't hit my 4 wood or my driver to save my life. And no, I am not a long hitter either, 3 iron goes 195~200 yds ttl but it feels hella good on impact and that's why I stick with it –I take very regular lessons, though.)

I had a 2 iron in my old Cleveland TA-5 set years ago. Of the dozens of times I pulled it out of the bag on the course, only 2 or 3 worked out well. To hell with 2irons, give me an 18* hybrid...

    • One thing that helped me improve my game was to take an honest look at my round. I would write out every hole and what happened. Something like this: Hole 1 [] - bogey - driver to right rough. 50deg from 120 to front bunker. 58 to 15ft. 2 putts (15,1) I did this for about 4 rounds and immediately started to see some common themes. Here is a direct example out of my file from 2014 for the first hole that paved the way to me dropping at least 5 shots per round. Hole 1 [] - bogey - driver to right rough. 50deg from 120 to front bunker. 58 to 15ft. 2 putts (15,1) Hole 1 [gir] - par - driver to right rough. 58deg from 92 to 20ftt. 2 putts (20,3) Hole 1 [gir] - bogey - driver to left bunker. PW from 128 to 60ft long. 3 putts (60,7, 1) Hole 1 [fw,gir] - par - crap driver in fairway. 9 iron from 140 to 22ft. 2 putts (22,1) I remember when I wrote that last one out kind of laughing. That hole felt easy to make a par on once I was on the fairway. I would stand on the tee and be scared of the water right, or the OB left, or the bunkers left, or the cart path (can't count how many times I hit it). Here is the hole I then decided that trying to hit a driver over the bunker on the left was stupid. I started hitting a hybrid to just short of that bunker. ie: the fattest part of the fairway. I was around 70% pars on that hole. The previous year I was probably something like 40%. It went from my most hated hole to one I enjoyed as it was low stress. A hybrid would never go in the water. Longest I would have in to the pin would be a 7 iron. If the pin was back right I would aim for middle back of the green and call it good. I did this for the remainder of the year. I ended up hitting driver less. About 5 times less. Which, surprise surprise, saved me 5 shots per round :) As the season progressed I dropped my handicap from about 8ish to 4. I have stuck around the 4 since then. I still shot the odd 92, almost always on a course I have never played before. If I have played the course I generally expect to be in the 70s. Now with the advent of things like GameGolf, Sky Golf, and Arccos, you can pretty easily get this information and figure out where you are throwing shots away.   
    • If there wasn't a hazard of death bunker between me and the green, I would've put the ball back in my stance and try to chase it up there with a 6 or 7 iron. If i had to fly it, just a typical 20 yard pitch with my 58.  The bark in itself would have been irrelevant to me as far as playing the shot goes. Its not between the club and the ball. 
    • The basic strategy for tendonitis/golfer's elbow/whatever it is you have is this: 1) schedule a doctor's appointment/get referred to a specialist to take a look at it. 2) stop golfing and begin the rest period, which alone could heal it, but these things typically take 4-6-10 weeks.  3) Get an X-Ray/MRI so they know exactly what's wrong with it, so you know how to exactly proceed 4) Ice it regularly per day (3-4 times) at 20 minute intervals.  5) Use prescribed anti-inflammatories to bring down any inflammation (or just over-the-counter stuff like Aleve).  6) this one you may not have to deal with, but if it's bad enough, like tendinosis (which is a degenerative tissue disorder, like I have) you have to schedule physical therapy, which can be a 12 week process. I myself am currently in the physical therapy process, but this injury has lingered for years. In your case, if it's just tendonitis, that can heal on its own in 6-10 weeks with just ice, rest, and anti-inflammatories. But that's why you get an MRI: you get a concrete diagnosis and then you'll get some kind of a timetable and strategy.    Regardless, you need to shut golf down right now, see your doctor, and find out exactly what's wrong with it with an MRI. It could be nothing, in which case, you may be back sooner rather than later, but typically, what you're describing needs to be treated responsibly and with an extended rest period.  It stinks, but golf will always be there when you heal up... at least, that's what I keep telling myself. Good luck, bud.
