Mizuno MP 52's Have Arrived!!

7 posts in this topic

I recently had my clubs stolen so I had to grab new gear. After careful consideration I decided on a set of Mizuno MP 52 irons (I can't buy brand new due to financial restrictions at the moment). The combination of forgiveness, feel and workability sold me on them. I found them on-line in great condition for only $100!!! They arrived via fed-ex today and I'm itching to get to the range. I know I didn't get to test drive them but I owned Mizuno MP 68's before this happened and they were amazing.

Does anyone have any feedback on the MP 52's? If so, I'd like to hear it. Cheers.

Congrats on the new sticks.  Enjoy!

Yes Shorty, I wanted something a little more forgiving on mis-hits. I loved my MP 68's but mis-hits were punished fairly harsh. I am a solid ball striker but I came to the conclusion that blades do make a difficult game just that much more difficult. So you were correct in that department even though I could hit them decent; it's the harshness of the mis-hits that I wanted to eliminate. So, cheers and I apologize for any malicious comments that I made in the past.

I just got back from testing out my 8 iron in a hydro field by my house and man what a sweet club. If the whole set is anything like the 8 iron then I'm going to be in Mizzy heaven. I'm looking forward to the pocket cavity/dual muscle in the mid/long irons as well. They came with Dynamic Gold SL S300 shafts as well. I'm going to the range tomorrow so I'll let you guys know how my day goes.

Certainly an easier club to hit than the 68s!

It seems that way with just the 8 iron alone. My first shot was slightly heeled and it was still a good shot with a beautiful trajectory and distance. Obviously I'll know more tomorrow but they're are designed with more forgiveness in mind.

Well, I have to say that the MP 52's are incredible. Very forgiving, beautiful trajectory and no loss in distance compared to my previous game improvement irons. The sweet spot is that perfect "Mizuno Feel" that all Mizuno players talk about and pured shots put a huge smile on your face.

Much more forgiving than MP 68's so I think I'll stick with these babies. The mi to long irons have the dual muscle, pocket groove technology which helps with launch, making them easy to hit and get in the air for a player's iron. The short irons are incredibly solid and the dispersion is very tight. I couldn't be more happy; I was knocking down targets like crazy today.

There's something about a Mizuno MP iron or even a player's iron that makes you WANT to put a good swing on the ba

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
