Impulse buy on mizzys

Recommended Posts

Recently graduated from graduate school and have a little more time on my hands than in recent years and getting back into playing a lot more. Was internet window shopping and found a deal I couldn’t pass up on a set of Mizuno MP 18 MMC With project X 6.5 (should be getting them Saturday) Wondering if anyone had any experience with the irons and if they like them.

Been gaming Nike vapor pros with DG s300 for past few seasons. I feel like I’m in for a 180 on feel and performance. 

stay safe everyone! Fairways and greens

That is a great set. You did not make a bad choice. That is a great set that is still solid. Probably got a good deal in them.

while I personally did not play the mmc irons I would have. They offer a very good look, that is packed with tech and playability.

Project X 6.5's are pretty stiff. I hope you've got a higher swing speed.

But, you can't go wrong with Mizuno irons.

This right here. The PX shafts will let you know pretty quickly if they work for you or not. I’ve had 6.0 and played s300 for a long time. Performance between them are similar but feel is very different. You are going up a flex and a big change in the stoutness of feels.

I've got the Mizuno MP 18 SC and I do not see myself going with anything else for the next 5+ years if that tells you anything.  

Great choice and congratulations on finishing up school.  As @jlukes mentioned, those are going to feel a lot stiffer and the project x play much lower in ball flight from my experience.  Definitely a great shaft though.  I had the 6.0 in the 710 AP2's years ago.

Man, the 6.5's scare me! I had played DG300's and with my new set was between the 6.0s and the $taper and ultimately went $taper. Good luck with them, mp-18s are great.

How does the size of the MMC compare to the Nike Vapor Pro?

 

I have the VPC, and was my first set of players irons. I am use to the head size. Trying to see which Mizuno clubs match their size. Cant find Nike size measurements anywhere.

How did your ball-flight change when you switched from the Rifle 6.0s to the $taper?

Just curious.

I game the MP-18 MMC irons with recoil F4 great feeling iron, can’t help with comparing with the Nike. My shoulders would hate me trying to swing a 6.5.

swing em well.

I have a combo set with 7-PW in the MP-20 MMC and I am absolutely in love with the irons. I have a feeling you won't want to take those new sticks out of your bag for a long time.

Ball flight was lower and dispersion was not as good with the 6.0's. It was pretty close though.

I can agree with this because I went from non fitted irons with s300 to fitted mizunos with the 6.5s. Definitely a completely different feel but I’ve gotten used to them and the performance is so much better with the 6.5 shafts for me.
