I’ve spoken to Mizuno. Same outcome as published. The scratches are apparently related to striking small stones. Mizuno could not explain why the clubs scratched the way they did but my Pings did not. They explained that was not the answer I wanted to hear but that was the situation. Not to worry, the clubs are going back to AG and going to be fitted for something else. Not ideal but I’m not prepared to pay good money for something that cannot withstand normal playing conditions. Certainly would not touch Mizuno again.
I am looking for irons on EBay.
I found the following; https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.nl%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132512852162
Do you guys think these are legit?
At first, the seller did not show pictures of the club face, but following my request, he made the last picture. They look good to me, but seller does not have a very long history...
Iron play has been my strenght the 3 years I have played the game. And I think reason to that is I wanted to get good with long irons right away. I give always plenty of time to 5i and 4i. For me, if I can hit pure long irons, its childs play with other irons. I think my ball shaping has came from that too.
