Just snagged set on ebay (too good a deal to pass up).  Any thoughts on them?  I know they're going to sweet when you flush them, but I'm a little hesitant about distance loss.  Any chance I replace my Razr X cavity backs?

Interestingly enough, on perfect strikes a flushed blade will go father than a GI iron.

I seem to remember a lot of posts from you over the last year or so on your inability to hit irons well.  So all I'll say is, good luck......

Great irons if you can hit the center of the clubface most of the time.

Id love to see some proof to back up that statement.

I bet the hilarity of that statement-What with the statements youve made over the past few years-flew right over your head.[quote name="GaijinGolfer" url="/t/71117/mp-32s#post_920466"] Id love to see some proof to back up that statement. [/quote]

Lessons are a curious thing.  Mixed with a healthy dose of dedication, practice, and a round or two per week, it's amazing how well someone who used to worry about topped and fat irons can strike the ball.

I have a set of them with super stiff KBS Tour shafts for training. I hit them into a net at home. Played with them a few times. No loss in distance or height, even though the shafts are way too stiff for me.

The cavity V back seems to make them more forgiving than my Cleveland CG tour. The top line is much thicker than normal blades, so I am guessing it is a form of game improvement "blade" if that makes any sense. However, my Ping i20s are much easier manage on the course, because toe shots are not punished as much.

It's out there. Blades tend to go a bit farther and have a tighter dispersion when struck directly on the sweet spot. There was a post a few years ago in one of the many "blades vs. cavity backs" threads (I think by Erik, but I'm not sure) with a pretty great chart, but it's going to take me a while to find it.

It's a big "if" for some of us. :-P

It helps me train, though so I know where to try to strike the face. The way I hit them, they go about the same. They used to go shorter, but that was because I hit the toe all the time.

There are several articles in on the web as well, this one comes to mind first.

Yup, that's the one I was thinking of.

Got them out on the range today (grass) and they are fantastic. Look great at address, soft at impact, FAR better turf interaction than my RAZR X's, and best of all no distance loss at all. Range is downhill so hard to tell for sure but possibly farther than the cb. Of course, a true mishit feels like crap. Question now is whether I'm missing out by play older clubs as oppee to new mizunos. What replaced the 32's?

Look up "Mark Crossfield". He is basically a golfing ad for Mizuno :-) .

Oh, and he has great on line pointers and tips.

Personally, the MP53 (???on the MP54) are close, but I like the heavy feel of the MP32. Like swinging a tank.

Why, because he likes Mizuno irons?  He also favors Nike woods, Ping hybrids and Titleist golf balls.  Funny, I dont ever recall anyone calling him a fanboy for those companies. :roll:

He pretty much gives a decent unbiased review on everything he tries. He does hold a special place in his heart for Mizuno though. It does feel like Mizuno can do no wrong in his eyes, but it isn't like he's bashing other companies. He does give credit were it is due.

Yes, doing a satire of Gorilla James is an unbiased review.


Seriously, though. I watched about ten of his videos, and started to get the idea that Mizuno clubs are the best. What was funny was that, I had never heard of Mizuno before that. I think it's the posters and the over-sized Mizuno golf bag sitting in the background in every one of his instructional videos that might have had something to do with it?

BTW, I do actually like my MP-32 irons, whether it was because of the subliminally implanted messages while watching his videos or the sweet feel of the clubs I'll never know. :-$

Oh, and when my ball striking gets good enough, I plan to purchase some new MP-54 or something like it from Mizuno (with KBS shafts, of course).

Maybe at first but not lately.  He hated the original JPX hybrids and in the case of the JPX-825s and JPX-EZs he clearly stated that if you already have JPX-800s that he doesnt see why youd upgrade.  I just always laugh when people call him a Mizuno fanboy.  If he had a full Mizuno bag, I could get onboard with that but its not like he thinks only Mizunos are good clubs and only uses Mizunos.

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
