Mizuno blades have ALWAYS been awesome to look at and sweet to hit well.

I had the MP-25s for a blink of a second.... The MP5 and 25s are two of my all-time favorite Mizzies. I’m jealous! I didn’t buy the 5s because they were “blades” and I thought I wasn’t good enough to play them.

I'm a Titleist guy but no irons compare looks wise to a Mizuno. I've never hit a Mizuno iron but I hear the feel matches the looks. Those are some beauts.

Do you think you are getting more spin?  The lower spin on the players distance irons has been a challenge for me and I lost some of the distance control I had with my traditional forged cavity backs.

Welcome back @Sluggo42 beautiful clubs.

I'm getting more and more tempted to go back to blades (last blades were the Mizuno MP69's and only changed to more forgiving SC 18's due to an illness)

The 'blades' these days I think will be 'slightly' more forgiving than 10 yrs ago and you cannot beat the sound and feel from a sweetspot iron. On the flipside a mis-hit in cold weather sends vibrations thru your arms and body like a cartoon character being hit with an iron bar😂

Maybe they'll be an MGS testing opportunity coming up with blades this year🏌️‍♂️

Not absolutely positive yet, because they just punched and sanded our greens a week ago, but they were stopping super quickly yesterday. And my greens are hard and fast, so I really need some serious stopping power.

I never was really happy with my p790’s spin, but they were long, but I found myself setting up to hit shorter shots to let them run out to the hole. I’ll need a few more rounds to get used to these. The 790’s on the smacwrap recoils were soft feeling due to the shaft and foam filled head, and the mizzies are a completely different softness.

i also went back to 115g steel stiff flex shafts vs the 82g reg flex recoil graphite. Hoping my elbow problems don’t return or I may have to transplant some recoils into these heads. Now that would create some serious softness eh?

Nursing elbow pain as well but struggled moving from steel to graphite.  I should be a perfect candidate for irons like the 790s as I am starting to lose distance.  I just think I do not spin the ball enough to play them successfully.

Those look like they'll hunt. I thought for sure you were going to grab that set of Z785's on the classifieds 🙂.  Also, you seem to really like your Sub70 wedges - did you consider any of their irons?
