New Mizuno MP4 Muscle Backs... My first impression----> WOW!

Recommended Posts

I've been gaming the Mizy MP59's for the last two years, and have been eyeing the MP69's for quite some time.  But today, Mizuno gave a sneak peak of their new MP4 Muscle Backs on their blog/forum.  They are gorgeous!

Wow! I've been considering the MP 69's too. Do you know if the 4's are a smaller head like the 69 or more mid-sized like the 59?

The MP-4s look sooooooo awesome.  If I were in the market for a new set, those would be going in my bag.

David, I haven't seen any specs on them... But I believe they are indeed a size similar to the 59.... Which makes them better for hacks like me!

If anyone has the details, please share...

Boner points for this thread and the pics. Negative boner points for using the term "gaming"...

I always like me some clean looking blades. Can't really tell but it looks like they thinned down the topline a little, which is to my preference.

Sorry, I'm not 'digging ditches' with the shovels you play with!

Fair enough.  I'll keep on digging ditches with Lee Westwood, and you keep on "gamin" with Luke Donald!

By the way, I'm going to be digging some ditches on the beach tomorrow afternoon ... what will you be doing???

So you're not buying the idea that he magically went up 15 strokes in handicap in the last 6 months? ;)  Smart bet.

There are very few scenarios where the word boner isn't funny...

Members caught lying about their handicap index will be viewed as dishonest scoundrels and will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

Appropriate, as Bukaki Island only accepts guest that fall inline with this label.

    • Yeah, beginners clubs go through a lot of abuse. Try getting a used set of good clubs. There are quite a few places that have those as well. The thing about the Zevo clubs was their lifetime warranty. I don't know if they still have it, but as a Golfsmith product they were warranted for life. I got shafts replaces and head glued on many times for free. The name brand products like TM or Callaway required shipping back to the manufacturers and could take a couple weeks. Shop around a bit.
    • Hogwash! I bet these people aren't saying Vince WIlfork isnt an athlete. And all he did was stand up and shuffle a few yards most of the time. You tell them to go hit 1000 balls and then go play 72 holes if they dont think golf is a athletic pursuit. If that doesn't work - get a super soaker, fill it with vinegar and water, and make them pay for their ignorance. 
    • Just because there is a maximum score rule, that doesnt mean people will follow it. Same thing with pace of play. I have played tons of courses that have the pace of play guidelines printed on the scorecard, but rounds take over that amount of time because there is nobody from the course out there actively enforcing the pace of play.  And in my own personal experience of non tournament golf, I have NEVER seen someone to come back up to the tee and hit another tee shot once they got out to the fairway/rough and couldnt find their ball. Based on my experience, people coming back up to the tee and rehitting/not hitting a provisional is not the reason for excessively slow rounds.
    • That's good to know. I've been debating between getting this Zevo complete set, or trying to find a decent quality iron set $150 to $250, that I can use with the current driver I have. Only problem is trying to find one new that isn't poor quality, or one used that doesn't look like it's been beaten to hell and back. Gotta love it! 
    • I haven't watched it, but I've read many of the comics when I was a kid. So, heightened other senses. . .Tradeoffs. Hmm, I wonder how much of that applies to golf?   Another topic for the healing lounge. Golf was insulted by a co-worker who doesn't know much about golf today. I told my co-worker that many of my partners think I can't hit far until I start hitting far on the course or range, because I look kind of dumpy. The real reason is that many have known me for years and knew me when I didn't drive this far on average, which actually only happened recently. Then he said "No golfer looks athletic, they all look out of shape. They're not athletes. You look more athletic than any of them." Then I told him about long drive, and he admitted watching some blurb on TV about that and stated "Yes, but that's not golf. Is it?" So, he agreed that long drivers look like athletes, while still stating that PGA Tour players don't look anything resembling athletes. You know what? I agreed with him, because it's kind of true. . . I was suddenly reminded of one of my recent post about "Fattest golfers on the PGA Tour." vs the "Fittest golfers on the PGA Tour."  Off the top of my head, only Rory, Sergio and Camillo. In recent pictures, Dustin looks like a twig. Tiger has skinny calves. Golf needs to heal from this mornings barrage of "We are not athletes." . . .
