Summary:
I'm a beginner in golf (started last March this year). A friend gave me an MX 15 #6 iron which convinced me to start playing golf since I could really hit it long and straight ( unlike hitting my driver with severe slice). Yesterday, I got my MX 950 iron set, and for the first time really can make #3 and #4 iron really fly BIG TIME!Of course, they are hybrids but I have tried several hybrids too and nothing even come close to the consistency and confidence it has added to my game.
I have the standard graphite, regular flex shaft on my set and it helps me a lot in creating super high flight trajectories in my hits. The other reviews about the wonderful feel and forgiveness is TRUE!
My friend commented positively on my hits and I encouraged him to upgrade to a Mizuno.
"The only thing better than a Mizuno is getting a Mizuno for free."

Mizuno MX 950

Summary:
I have been playing golf 5 years.
I bought my MX 950s about two years ago and have hit thousands of balls with them and played at least a hundred fifty rounds of golf.I put regular flex Grafalloy blue graphites in them a few have Mizuno Exsar regular flex graphites and ar comparable..
I am 53 years old and hit the ball pretty well. 8 iron 165 pitching wedge 145 and so on.
I was shooting in the 90s pretty regularly.I immediately dropped into the 80s and broke 80 for the first time last year.
I often leave my driver at home and use my 3 hybrid as my driver.People question this for about two tee shots and then want to knw what it is.
I easily hit it 240 and straight as an arrow.
The hybrid style irons are almost impossible to hit badly.They go further than any other I have tried and even miss hits go straight.I would not trade these irons for new of any brand.Go get some.You will be thrilled!
Jay

MX-950 3-PW, Graphite S-Flex

Summary:
Been stuck at low 80s for two years with Callaway Big Bertha irons, steel shafts. Played with these yesterday and shot a clean 74 from the big boy tees! 2 clubs longer thru the set with smoother swing. Exsar feels a bit weird of you don't let set the club at top or get quick in tempo. However, everything comes off the face with a nice 5-7yd draw. A bit hard to hit a high cut, but I wasn't really trying, just letting the natural flight work so I could learn the clubs. I love the progressive set and thinner soles than the Callaways. The hybrid 3 and 4 are absolutely smoking hot, but come off the face in a hard 15yd draw. If you've learned to strike the ball decently with your old set of forgiveness irons, but not really ready to jump to a "players" set, I HIGHLY recommend these. I did a lot of research and even tried to hit a set of MP-52 and 62, with dissapointing results. I got these new on E-bay for $350. Get a set today, you won't regret it!!!

Mizuno MX-950

Summary:
Bought this set barely used on Ebay six weeks ago for a very reasonable price. Standard steel shafts. My decision for the MX-950 was mainly motivated by the very positive feedback the other reviewers gave concerning the game improvement factor of this set. And they were all right! The forgiveness is amazing: toe and heel shots are still going straight, thin hits still fly have almost the length of a normal shot. The (fewer) times I hit the ball exactly in the way it’s meant to be, the longer irons make a “click” sound, give little feedback but have a nice high, long and consistent flight. The shorter irons (8-PW) are very different in feel; certainly less forgiving, they give me as a rookie in the game an idea how “buttery” a good golf shot can be. You actually don’t hear a sound when hitting them correctly. Given the fact that I’m quite confident with shorter iron shots, thus have less need of forgiveness there, the combination of completely different designed longer and shorter irons is amazing.Different for the long irons (3 and 4) which are actually hybrids here: so far, I’m not as convinced about their performance. I was expecting from them to extend my available length (I’m not playing fairway woods) especially for longer Par 3s and all Par 5s from 165 yards (with the 5 iron) to 180-190 yards, but obviously swing speed and precison of my swing isn’t sufficient (yet) to put that extra length they offer into effect. It’s probably still easier with those hybrids than it would be with long irons, and I still need some practice. Drawback of such a forgiving set of clubs with helped me to finish my round consistently with 10 shots less, without effort: I get lazy and less concentrated while hitting them, so there are certainly not helping to really improve my game. Conclusion: great set of clubs that I would recommend for anyone who struggles with a consistent, repeatable swing. They are able to open up a whole new gameplay for you!

Mizuno MX-950

Summary:
I bought a set of Ping G15's just before Christmas, really disappointed. Had no real sweet spot, were about 1 club shorter than my existing clubs and the new conforming grooves sent me through the greens everytime even with Pro v1's. Decided to buy a set of MX-950's and took them to the range today. They are a quatum leap better than the G15's. The feel of these clubs is like nothing I've hit before and the hybrids are awesome. Nice high ball flight with a straight to fade bias. Also have the non conforming grooves, which will see me out to 2024. They are at good prices at the moment with the new MX-1000's released. Dont buy Pings until you try these.
