MIzuno Releases MP-15 at Open Championship

38 posts in this topic

I didn't see this coming.  Not much information or any official press release just yet aside from this link.

They look excellent and look like they are going to replace the MP-59.  The titanium insert and design looks like there's going to be a lot of perimeter weighting which obviously means more forgiveness while still looking like a players iron.

Should be interesting!

Lol!! There's a very good chance you'd never be able to tell between a forged and a cast iron...

Other than the shiny finish, they look a lot like the new Cally Apex Pro irons.

Correct, pretty much NO chance....

They do.  I'm very curious about the forgiveness while still being a "players"  MP iron.  This will probably be a replacement to the Mp59 and more forgiving.  One thing about Mizuno, I love their irons but man do I dislike their naming sequence.

I would say that on center hits there is hardly any difference. I would claim more difference is made with the type of grip you use, and the type of golf shaft installed. A lot goes into feel.

Though, I will say that on off-center hits, more forgiving clubs are softer. Just because the sweet spot is bigger, so it naturally will feel like a more solid hit. That is the reason I like less forgiving irons, I can really tell if I toed one or not.

If casted and forged iron are the same, how do you explain this: [VIDEO]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gZ6kzTx2syU[/VIDEO]

Good marketing......aimed at people who are generally ignorant about the process by which irons are made.

Given a quality forged club and a quality cast club of the same type, very few if any people can tell the difference.  They're simply different manufacturing processes that ultimately accomplish pretty much the same thing.

By the way......I play high quality forged irons too.

I personally don't think that you can feel a difference at impact between a forged or a casted club. But I don't know if they sound different at impact and how much this sound really affects the player...

Does anyone have any history about Mizuno? I really like the looks of their clubs seen the commercials ect. But the last I have heard of Mizuno since recently in golf was...that was the baseball bat I used back in Jr. High

It's a long shot, but maybe if you typed "Mizuno history" in Google you'd get some results. Unlikely, but possible.

Do you have a friend who has  computer? Maybe they could do that for you if you wrote them a letter asking.

Otherwise, some kind member will surely type out a few pages for you. :loco:

    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
    • From Sat: 1 - 3 putt 9 - 2 putts 8 - 1 putts I call that a pretty good day with the chicken stick!
    • Haven't been to a driving range yet this year and went out to play my first round of the year on Sat.  No warm up just right to the first tee and bam, nice lil fade to about 100 yards.  Drop it to 4' and I am putting for a birdie!  WOW!  What a way to start. Second hole I pared, third hole I pared as well!  What is going on I thought?  Bogey most of the other holes with a real bad triple but end the front with another par.  42 on the front is looking good! Play about the same on the back with a lot of bogeys and 3 more pars and end with a 43. 85 my first time out this year was sweet!  Only missed 1 fairway and was 14 & 15 for putting.
