Mizuno MP-20

Recommended Posts

An elastomer fill would be nice, but I’m going to buy an MP20 HMB 3-iron, just to banish my 3 hybrid to the closet. Hopefully I can order one on 9/20 if not before. I’m just too used to “woods” and irons, for whatever silly reason my brain can’t process hybrids...

I really want to try these they look gorgeous I would almost guarantee you i would be fit in the HMB's they look beautiful. I was testing out the JPX Hot Metal Pro and they were flying well. Wish I could get these out for an on course round may need to see if there are any courses near me to try these or HMP

I hit all 3 of the MP 20 models yesterday.  They all felt and sounded wonderful.  I was surprised that the HMB sounded so good given its hollow design.  The MMC and HMB were giving me my regular distances even though they are 2 degrees weaker than my current irons.  The MP 20s gave me the numbers I would expect from a traditionally lofted blade.

MMC's and HMB's are the same loft which is 2-degrees stronger than the MP-20 blade from the 8-iron and up. They're pretty close to what I would call modern-traditional. Starting with the 4-iron, they go 22, 25, 28, 32, 36, 41, 46. MP-20 blade goes 24, 27, 30, 34, 38, 42, 46.

What I'd consider "traditional" lofts is going to have the PW somewhere closer to 49-degrees and we haven't really seen anyone release a PW with that loft in quite some time.

Tiger spec'd P7TW have 49° PW but your point stands as the standard spec of the set is 47°.

Yeah, I thought about about that, but it's pretty uncommon. Tiger's setup is definitely old-school and you won't find many sets with those lofts on tour - on any tour.

Yes, but they are one to two degrees weak compared to most current GI and SGI sets on the market.  For instance, my Titleist 718 AP1s have a 30 degree 7 iron.  The new Titleist T300s have a 29 degree 7 iron, which is 2 clubs stronger than my Ping Eye 2s.

that's understandable given the difference in class of irons.

I love the looks of these and am wondering how forgiving the hot metals are.  Nobody makes a better looking iron then Mizuno.  I have seen reviews where guys are using a combo set and they have not said anything negative about looking down at the top line.

Update after my second round with the SELs yesterday. I was playing a completely new course to me and we went from the Championship Tees with 15 mph winds (Texas). Doing so gave me the opportunity to use my longer irons frequently in the round, including longer par 3s and some longer par 4s as well. In regards to the MB, I

got to play my MB 5 iron, 5 times today and have to say I'm really impressed with the results (please note this is the lowest MB iron in the SEL set). From the 5 shots, 4 were in the green (closest was 6 feet) and 1 was around 10 yards short of the green due to my own error. I would take that EVERY single day for sure!!! Kinda still wish us lefties had the option to have 3-4 in MB as well, but is a move forward with Mizuno and no biggie. Next year I hope the JPX Tour version gets released in left-handed and I will be buying them as well if that's the case (I'm that in awe with these Mizuno irons)

I could go either way. Love my MP-18s. Mizuno just makes beautiful blades. I personally like the traditional MP line but if I did go for the modern, tough look, the JPX 919s were sweet.
