Whow mizuno makes so sweet clubs. I wouldn't want this set in the bag tho. Think this will cost me a few strokes. But yeah they look awesome.

As far as dress to impress goes. Stepping up the tee with this in hand, i think your 2 up already.

I have read the specs and seen some videos on youtube and so far wonderful reviews. It's been a while since Mizuno has come out with a muscleback that will be a classic and the MP4 is it. I have a set of vintage Mp32s and MS801s and am currently using the MP62s. Simply love Mizuno irons and I will be keen to own a set of these MP4s when the prices comes down alittle. By the way, for the MP4s, Mizuno has shrunk the heads alittle from 8 iron to PW. This is to help us hit closer to the centre more consistently because the face is smaller. Hi Steve, I use the MP62s too and I am loving it. If you are having fun with your MP62s like I am, then, you will like the MP4s. The MP62s are not for everyone, you need to be striking the ball pretty well to really experience the benefits of this wonderful dual muscle back iron. When it first came out together with the MP52s, I choose the MP62s because I wanted an iron closer to a pure muscleback but with a slight built in forgiveness which is what the MP62 is. My understanding from the videos online by: Mizuno staff, Charles Howell III and another view by Mark Crossfield that the MP4s are the softest feel iron ever and yet communicates a positive and solid feeling.

MP H4's are a little bit less soft, because they are more progressive set, more forgiving in the longer irons.

I recommend go to a golf shop that has the mizuno cart with able to switch out shaft. I highly recommend trying out KBS shafts. They are heads above a better shaft than True Temper. Rifle Project X shafts are close, but KBS are just better.

As pretty as those look, I don't really want them within 10 feet of my bag unless they're in the bag of someone I'm playing for money. Having hit the MP-69's before out of curiosity, I can say that blades like this aren't for me regardless of how much I want them based off looks and feel on pure strikes.

Mizuno's are generally more flatter clubs, but that wont hurt you much.

Maybe, maybe not. Think it's more of an optical illusion than anything else but then I'm quite big on clubs that look 'right' to me at address. Always had problems with clubs I'm convinced aren't 'right' even if it's purely an optical trick. That said, if they were flat, not sure I'd be too happy with the toe of the club hitting turf in advance of any other part of the sole.

    • Thanks for clearing that up -- it's very reassuring.  I guess I've always used it like a Classic.  Which I'm fine with:  tag during the round, upload later, fix mis-tags etc, then get stats are the only features I've wanted.  I also had the "I thought that round vanished" thing happen a few months ago, and a few popped up, which was nice.  Maybe that will happen with these.
    • Day 574 - July 24, 2021 Played 9 at “The Ridge” with Nat and Brooke.
    • You can use it like Classic and upload via your phone after, but the “Live” part means you can use it live while you play on your phone. That’s not what I’ve said. If the rounds upload successfully they’re removed from the device. But they aren’t always  actually uploaded. Then again, I thought rounds were lost before and they appeared. That’s just “Classic” and you were notified years ago (like four or five) that using newer OSes and the Transfer app was being discontinued. Had you told them about your trip to SV and they just didn’t get it going in time for that, or were they unaware? It’d have been nice to use it there.
    • Day 109 (7/24/21) - Decided that I needed to review the 30-day Covid drills, so I started at the beginning with Day-1 - Early backswing. Did the left and right hand drills then added the pivot to A2, chipping a tennis ball in the yard for about 20-minutes using my 7-iron and 7-wood. When chipping the ball with this drill, I focused making a good turn thru the ball and making sure that my low point was in front of the ball. 
    • You can read my impressions so far here: If I had to make a recommendation right now, I'd say don't do it.  However, I've been in contact with the GG people, and they're trying to improve the performance.  I'd love for it to work, and I'm more than willing to do my part, all we can do is wait to see how it turns out.
