Mizuno MP-57 Irons Review

Mizuno MP-57


Description
The New MP-57TM irons are a crowning achievement in the evolution of MIZUNO's award-winning Grain Flow Forging® and Cut MuscleTM technologies. The Product Development team undertook the task of making the MP-57's the first MP iron with a Full Cavity, resulting in a significantly larger sweet area than any other iron in the history of the MP line. Along with increased forgiveness, the MP-57's produce a slightly higher ball flight in the long irons, and a mid trajectory in the scoring irons. They also deliver the solid feel and shot making ability that the MP iron player craves. Most importantly, the MP-57's achieve all these playing aspects, yet in a classic head profile that appeals to better players.

The ideal combination of solid feel and workability, with unbelievable forgiveness, make the MP-57s the most playable MP irons ever.

Features

* First ever Full Cavity MP iron for increased forgiveness with a reinforcing muscle pad for enhanced feel.
* Innovative Cut MuscleTM design provides ideal COG location, perfect trajectory, enhanced solid feel, and complete ball control.
* Exclusive Grain Flow Forged®, 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel provides the ultimate soft, solid, consistent feel.
* Durable Double nickel chrome plated finish.
* Modified U-grooves produce the ideal spin rate, for maximum playability in all conditions.
* Rolled leading edge, cambered mid-sole, and rolled trailing edge deliver consistent striking ability from all types of lies.

Summary:
A really nice feel - it does have that Mizuno Forged feel at impact if you hit it on the sweetspot. I thought it was going to be more forgiving than it was. I hit balls and played 2 rounds with them and I wanted them to be the club - they weren't. It is a beautiful club. If you're looking for forgiveness in a forged club - look somewhere else. The old Mizuno Pros (late 90s) has more forgiveness and a better feel than these.

Summary:
I've previously played with Titlest Blade (PM) for 12 years, and swiched 3 years ago to Taylor Made Tour Preferred TP irons. I'm a Lefty, so it's hard to find and try quality clubs witout buying them. I saw a used set of MP 57's on ebay, and decided to buy them. Looks like they were played for a season, but in great shape. I played a round,the day after receiving them, and they felt solid, and the ball flight was perfect for me. However all shots went right, and I though I was pulling or hooking everything. They just felt like they would go right in the set up...so I took them to Golf Galaxy, and sure enough, they were 1 1/2 to 2 degrees upright..had them changed back to Standard, and now WOW..they feel great, go where you aim them, and I have increased my distance by 1/2 club...They are a Players club, you can move the ball, and get great feedback. Highly recommend for 0-12 handicapers...or aspiring 20's who want to be single digets. But get them or any set fitted..even good golfers cant hit shots with Irons not fitted to them.

Summary:
Clubs good as Russian Vodka comrad. I so happy to be in this country where women have high heel with short pants. Beyond wildest dream. I start golf back 5 years after getting dream job as grass lawn jockey. I sneak off to links at midnight like spy back in Kremlin. First I borrow set from soul brotha' neighbor but find heads to big for liking. I get good real fast and need clubs help me get better.

I go to said golf store and slavic owner try to wheel/deal. I make him offer he can't refuse with my Russian friends beside. I now own said clubs and will protect store owner from Russian Mob. I tell him I'll peel his skin if he tell. No problem.

Year later I play golf still with same clubs. Club cut through ball like a peeling knife through finger back at KGB. Love country where fallen comrad can bat around ball with shiny club.

I must go now. My wife, Zoya, she get mad when take time on review board. She cooking favorite food this night...Tvorog burgers and Vodka. I will see you.

Model Reviewed:
Mizuno MP-57

Summary:
I have had these clubs for 3 seasons now and love the consistency. They seemed to be a full club different from my previous set (R7). I played a full year with them thinking my swing was at fault for the distance loss. I hit them pure, but had to play an 8 where I would normally play a 9 iron. Finally I took them back to the shop I bought them from to get a second fitting, thinking it might be the wrong shaft for my swing. Turns out the clubs had a 4 or 5 degree difference in loft from my old set. They made a couple adjustments and sent me on the range...low and behold I was back to my distance but still hitting far more consistent. I am still considering new shafts as their analyzer suggests an R300 or PX 5.5 for my SS. Overall though I love these irons. They look great at address, swing pure and with the DG S300 shafts have a boring trajectory. Just make sure if you buy them online you get fitted before tossing them out...really goes for any club, but it made a huge difference with these.
