Golf Monthly Technical Editor Paul O'Hagan gives his Mizuno MP-15 irons review
Above, Golf Monthly Technical Editor Paul O'Hagan gives his Mizuno MP-15 irons review.
At a glance:
- A classic-looking Mizuno iron with added forgiveness - This better-player design will retail at £115 per club
Forgiveness without sacrificing looks and feel was the aim of the new MP-15, which certainly appears to be every inch the classic Mizuno MP iron.
In this sense, it’s compact with clean lines and should enhance both your feel and workability. It’s hidden secret, though, is in the Titanium Muscle insert, which helps the club maintain its thickness behind impact for a solid feel, while allowing weight to be shifted to the perimeter to provide cavity-like forgiveness.
The refined Ti Muscle weighs just 10g (replacing 38g of steel), yet its increased curvature and thickness ensure that feel isn’t sacrificed.
The profile and head size of the MP-15 is based on the shallow-cavity MP-64, the key difference being the 10 per cent greater forgiveness created through the use of the Ti Muscle insert.
As the Ti insert is engineered to create off-centre stability rather than launch forgiveness, trajectory is comparable to Mizuno’s other tour irons.
Away from the Ti Muscle insert, a tour-proven sole provides subtle relief and a rounded leading edge delivers smoother turf interaction.
The scoring irons also have a shorter blade length than the long irons to make them more workable for attacking flags.
Mizuno MP-15 irons are available to purchase now with an RRP of £115 per club.
