Mizuno MP 52's Have Arrived!!

Recommended Posts

Paiste    7

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.

Sounds like you're gonna be able to give us some feedback pretty quickly!

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

    • As others have said, you''ll probably be hitting a lot of shots with short irons .  with awkward changes to grip,posture, that kind of thing.  I'll be surprised if he let's you swing your driver unless your iron game is really competent and you don't have swing flaws. A very good chance it'll make you a better player, but early lessons  might not be fun. At least that's been my experience and that of everybody I know who have taken lessons.
    • I responded initially to David's comment about hitting an approach shot with what I thought would require a fairway wood to a difficult green and being confident in the outcome. What you've quoted was a response and disagreement to Kevin's comment suggesting that hole would not be difficult for higher handicappers. I'll resist replying to @Vinsk's post directly below yours. My apologies for taking this thread off-topic.
    • I've been looking at my swing in caddie view, especially P8/A8 (the shaft is parallel to the ground in the follow-through) and I noticed that my neck and eyes are still pointing in the direction of where the ball was at address until after P9/A9. I think this is a really bad move for me as I am left handed and left eye dominant, meaning that my dominant eye isn't really seeing the ball after impact, and I am not extending or raising my head from P7/A7 to P9/A9. Annika Sorenstam (who is right handed and right eye dominant) does the opposite move, at P8/A8 her eyes and neck are in the direction of the clubhead from a head swivel move in the downswing. Jim Furyk and David Duval do the same thing that she does and all 3 players shot sub 60 rounds... Could this be a magic move?
    • Uhh, these guys you are destroying, what scores do they usually shoot? they had low handicaps, they were on the golf team with me or for another high school.   You have a 28 HDCP, yet you hit the sweet spot consistently on your irons? for the most part, yes.    thank you for the suggestion, but I hate the feel and look of game improvement irons. which ones do you suggest?
    • Funny guy this Groucho, think he is trolling you Erik.  My story as someone who scores in the seventies when playing a good round (low eighties are more common). I really need my long game to be on. Hitting it 220-230y from the tee, playing a course at 6700y. Next I mostly have a wood or a hybrid to the green. Because of that I became a really good woods/hybrid player (practice it a lot during my rounds). There are two 440y par4's that I can't reach in two, stopped trying to make gir there (no more 3 woods out of my shoes to the green). Not that I hit every green, I even miss greens from 100y in, allways very happy to be on the green in regulation. Ngir is king for me. If not on the green, but almost, I try my Texas wedge (putter) to make up and down. I am not an elite player at all, but am really into scoring. Thinking about buying a chipper, because my chipping is below average. I take my driver out on every hole except par3's. I learned to hit a short gripped driver with an easy 70% swing 180-190y, when there is danger at 200+y, it works for me all the time.
