I didn't get to compare them side by side with the MP69, but these do appear smaller.  A delight to hit up to the 5 iron.  I wasn't striking them too well when I picked up the 4 iron to demo though.

Negative boner points for using the term "gaming"...

"gaming", "rocking", and "sporting"  all are grounds for taking away your lunch money at recess

(Love the Mizuno's, they look so clean while everyone else has such "busy" looking clubs with slots and inserts and colors and ad nauseum - I don't hit clean enough (yet, and likely ever) for this kind of club, I think.  Would be fun to demo it.)

Nice looking clubs.  I like the number 4 better than either numbers 6 or 8 (in my MP68s), so maybe I should get these.

Yes, that is one of the ways I pick my clubs.  50% by the name, and 50% by the look.  If they made MP24s I would own 2 sets.  Or maybe I will just buy 2 sets of the MP4s?  Yes, that's the ticket!

The new MP4s kind of reminds of me the MP14s whcih were beautifully crafted musclebacks. The MP68s are sweet too. I still own my first set of Mizuno irons when I started playing golf 30 years ago, they are the Mizuno Pro MS801s; pure musclebacks. Great way to learn golf by using musclebacks then we will learn to hit it right and better.

What if you're gaming a boner?

You got me there! [quote name="David in FL" url="/t/68514/new-mizuno-mp4-muscle-backs-my-first-impression-wow/36#post_900110"] Based on the commercials, if your round of golf takes longer than 4 hours, I think you're supposed to seek medical advice![/quote] Lol!

Those commercials have it all wrong. If I experience an erection for more than 4 hours it's my wife that'll be needin' the medical attention.

So, are these MP-4's considered game improvement irons or are they for the low handicappers only?? Joezilla

Yeah, total shovels. :-P Just kidding. These irons are about as far from GI as you can get.

Their website lists them at 0-4 handicap, I believe.

For reference, the MP69s are +4 through 8 and the JPX irons are typically for 10-35 handicaps.
I don't care though.  I'll game anything that looks good enough, because I'm a vanity golfer.

    • I said that the gap narrows. Good putters still putt the ball on good lines but randomness now creates some misses that wouldn’t occur on the perfect green. Poorer putters now occasionally get a good break and the ball falls in.    The worst putters, who would never make a putt on the perfect green, now might sink the occasional putt (assuming the randomness is extreme enough). But the best putters, who would never miss on the perfect green, now miss with some (random) regularity.
    • Gap remains same. The good putters adapt just like they adapt for slow and fast greens on different courses. They will ram them home to hold the line better through the bumps on short putts and lag putt more defensively to have easier 2nd putts. I had slight inclination to say the gap would even increase. BTW, the luck factor helping/hurting either group to any significant level is BS. 
    • I believe women’s club heads may also be a different weight than men’s. This is to give them a similar feel for the shorter club length and lighter shaft. If you have decent swing speed, it may be better to get fitted with your current clubs and have them adjust length, lie and swing weight as @Vinsk suggested. If they shorten the club length, they will add tip weight to get the swing weight correct.
    • Best 92 ever for me. 2nd time on this course that has many elevation changes and hidden hazards. 6 penalty strokes and never really put anything together. But also hit everything solid. I'll take it any day.
    • Day 13 Full swing iron practice with a 6i, 8i and GW.
