Ping i15 vs Mizuno


Recommended Posts

Hey MGS!

 

It's that time where I get to purchase myself a new set of irons. It's been a few years and I believe my game has improved enough for a better set like a forged of semi forged set of irons. For current specs I am 16 years old, 6'2" 175lbs and my handicap is at about a 7 right now. The sets of clubs that have caught my attention lately are the ping i15's and everything from mizuno (I am very indecisive haha) so I decided to come here for help. Between the ping i15's and the mp 58/mp 52 or any other iron from mizuno you would reccomend which one should I go for?

 

Thanks,

Mat-

 

First off, congrats on achieving a 7 handicap by such a young age. That is truly a great accomplishment. Most golfers never achieve that level of skill in their lifetime.

 

Regarding your question, my opinion is that both clubs are worthy of your consideration but none of us can really answer your question. You need to hit them and see which irons suit your eye and swing. Unlike my decision chronicled in the players iron thread between the Bridgestone J36s and Mizuno MP 57s, your situation is different because the two clubs you are interested in are very, very different. One is cast and the other is forged. The I15 has a thicker top line and a wider sole, etc, etc.

 

You will find both Ping and Mizuno loyalists on this board so getting an unbiased opinion will be nearly impossible. You need to demo them.

Thanks Blaine!

 

I'm going to be heading down to my local shop this weekend to try them out. But so far I'm leaning towards the mizunos because I love the classic iron look they have. Thanks for the props and the advice hopefully things will work out haha

2 different set of clubs. Given that I'm a Mizuno fan my bias would be that direction. However I've come to realize that shaft fitting is perhaps the most important part to focus on when getting new clubs.

 

Be sure that you try out a number of different shaft offerings to find one that really suits your tempo and shaft loading characteristics!

Also, if you can get an iron or two and take them out on to a course to play with rather than just range demo, you will be able to get a better feel for them.

Hopefully you can find a shop/course where this is possible.
