Mizuno MP-29 Masters Edition...Anyone Seen These?

12 posts in this topic

Friend that owns a rather large and successful golf shop gave me a heads up that he just took a 3-SW set (9 clubs) of Mizuno MP-29 Masters Edition in on trade.  Said they were only released in Japan, and that they have the Masters emblem on the back of the club head.

Anyone seen such a thing...or even heard of it?  My Googling abilities have been put to the test, and I could not come up with a single photo.

If they are indeed that rare...which would seem that they are...I may be picking them up just as a collector's item.  Thoughts?  Photos?  Anyone?

I cannot seem to edit the initial post, but I have a hypothetical for everyone.  If someone bought the aforementioned irons, and came home with a 3-SW (9 clubs) set of these with all matching serials and in near mint condition, what might be a fair price?  Also...what the heck are they specifically?  I do not think they are from the MP-29 line as they do not show any relief near the toe in the short irons.

Note the sweet white alignment sticks in the putter well.  Courtesy of this wonderful site.

That's for the alignment sticks, right?

Mizuno USA says they have no information other than it is a JDM "somewhat" limited edition iron based on a relationship with Augusta National.  Due to a language barrier, I have no idea how to get in touch with an English speaking member of the Mizuno Japan customer support team.

Anyone have anything they can add?

Maybe send a PM to this guy, he has a nice pic of an 8 iron in this post:

Somewhat concerned I may have been had by the golf shop. The issue is that I was looking for a playable set of irons when I bought these. Now it seems these have an incredible playability factor, but everyone I ask says I am a fool for taking them to a course instead of hanging them on the wall.

Unless somebody is willing to pay serious money on e-bay for them I would play them.

I am a huge mizuno blade fan.  I am curious, what did you decide to do with these? Did you want to sell them?

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
