chisag.... have you hit the MMC? If you have, what are your thoughts?

 

... I did a review of the MP59's for WRX when they were first released and I was fitted by Mizuno to make sure my review was accurate, using the right clubs for my swing. Very smart. The MMC's are really the updated version of MP59's that I loved and played for 2 years and if I were gonna play Mizuno's, the MMC's would be my choice. Not quite as soft as the SC's but still feel really good. I am of the opinion you should play the most forgiving irons you can effectively play and the MMC's check all the boxes for a great all around iron that does everything well.

I tested the P790, Forged Tec and i500 and preferred the forged tec. Just slightly more forgiving than the p790 for me and given where my swing is at I went for the Cobra. Was actually a big decision

... Always take your irons with you and it at least gives you a baseline. If you know you hit your 7 iron 155 and you are hitting it 165 on the LM in the store, you know the new irons you are demoing

I’m pretty happy with my Sub 70 739 irons I recently purchased. They compared well with any of the major OEM game improvement iron. Quality stuff, custom built, excellent service and very affordable.

Im interested in the Tommy Armour 845s.  I love that they brought back a classic name and the clubs look legit.

I love my Z785 irons, and can’t wait to see what Srixon comes out with in September, but for now, there were three irons that stood out in my fitting:
Z785, of course
Honma 747 Tour V
Vega Mizar

The last two actually had better numbers than the Srixons. Those Mizars are SO fun to hit!!! $200 a club, so not in my future, and the Honmas were amazing!!! I haven’t hit the newly released Honmas, but I bet they’re awesome.

Pound for pound, I would put Rochester next to any golf destination for top courses. Donald Ross and RTJ did some spectacular work up here. Aside from the golf, it has so much to offer that I’m glad I moved back after 9 years in Florida.

I’m looking forward to this golf season more and more as the snow melts quickly today...

 

That's why it'll Feel So Good when I meet up with you this spring or summer.

Also, I'm all the way in on the HL4 Ironwoods. Like I think I'm going for a fitting by the end of the month all the way in.

I'm looking real hard at Mizuno JPX 919 Tour and MP18 SC. Anyone have insight on either?

I currently play the 919 tours and I absolutely love them. I will have to agree with everything Chisag said in regards to these irons. I also own a set of Cleveland 588 cb/mb combo irons and they are noticeably softer than the mizunos. I kinda jumped into getting fitted for the tours and I really wish I would’ve tested the srixon irons before purchasing. If the srixon irons feel anything like the Cleveland’s I have then you should definitely try them out.

chisag.... I hit both the mp18 sc and mmc today. I loved both of them, but I think I love the mmc more. I walked away without purchasing, but I think I might be regretting my decision based on the fact I could have purchased either at an almost $300.00 discount. I just might have to go back and hit of them again..... and come home with one of them...lol.

On another note.... I hate hitting irons off of a mat!  Not only that.... I don't trust the LM's in a golf store. I just went with how I perceived the "feel" when I hit these irons, and disregarded all the LM stuff. The LM totally went against everything I know to be true when actually playing golf.

... Always take your irons with you and it at least gives you a baseline. If you know you hit your 7 iron 155 and you are hitting it 165 on the LM in the store, you know the new irons you are demoing are approximately 10 yds shorter than what the LM says. Fwiw, I never pay attention to indoor LM's because I am playing golf swing, not golf. No target to hone in on so I am thinking swing not target and that changes everything. Works for some, just not me. 

... The SC's are really nice but those MMC's are tough to beat for all around performance and feel. Good luck on your next visit!

I was in the same boat when I was looking for new irons. At my fitting I hit both ok, pro handed me the MMC. One hit and I was in love. Like @chisag said, they are forgiving, but still feel great. I couldn't be happier with mine.

Now I haven't tried them only seen them and tried the older models but I really like the new forged tec irons from cobra. Really want to go give them a hit, however the likelihood of a purchase would be slim with the i210 still bring phenomenal irons. 

Also hoping to see a new 760 come it soon.

chisag.... or anyone else.................... I'm probably going to pull the trigger on the MP18 SC or MMC , soon. I love both irons. I think the MMC is a touch more forgiving, but not much. I really prefer the sound/feel of the SC, but I really like the  Nippon Modus shaft that comes in the MMC. I'm torn...lol.

I love the T200 and the T100s. I need a bit of help on distance and both of these provide that option while also looking amazing at address
