    Was there a LH version of this on the site?



    EDIT: I meant the MP18 us version. Do you have a link to the site. Tried searching with no luck.

    Interesting stuff on the Usga website



    Seems the product is labelled differently for Japan and USA markets , mizuno pro 118 and mizuno mp 18



    Also a s118 wedge/ mizuno pro 18 wedge I take it designed to replace the s5
    yep I missed this
    That is one ugly **** wedge.....



    I still don't think that they've introduced a wedge better than the 11, but Madison tells me that I'm in a hazed out time warp so who knows, maybe I'm off😉



    All the Best👊

    no LH version of mp 18 or 118 posted. I doubt we will see one but would be cool to get a true combo set LH.

    I can't believe Mizuno are ditching chrome for satin in their MP line. The chrome rocks!

    Why do people still try keep calling a CB a blade. If it's got a cavity it's not a blade. Blades are solid, no cut out of the back. I'm will to bet SC stands for ......... drum roll please Split Cavity. Now if it has those little slots or cut outs in the muscle or bottom back side its called Pocket cavity i.e.... the MP-52.

    I'm just trying to clarify that Blades look like this :





    I know it is splitting hairs, but the MP-4 is more of a muscle back than a blade... The 33 or 37 would be a blade.

    ****... just settled in on some z 565s w/ modus after off loading my 25's for a little more help, and Mizzy does this! These will be in my bag in September, no matter how well I'm hitting my 565s... I loved my Mp 52s! Wonder if these will fit that category or lower caps?

    Sorry the Boron doesn't change the feel the design does. They don't use enough boron in the head to change feel.

    The 900F and T7's may not feel as soft as MP4's, but hash, is a bit much. It has more to do with the head design than the boron....

    Ok either way my MP 54s felt a ton softer than the MP 25s.

    Just my opinion and I've played every lefty MP since the MP 30s and the GF Boron felt like a cast club to me. Also no noticable distance difference

    I agree - I've owned Most MP irons the last 10 years - The 25s were a disaster and the 900F feel like AP1s

    No attempt to discount your feelings on the club. I own MP5's, and they do not feel as soft, no doubt, but do not think they resemble anything cast. I have owned a lot of Mizzy sets myself.



    No different than thinking we will all like the same putter mill/insert.

    no debate on that one. I also feel like the 900F are much better than the 25's. JMO.

    A combo set is definitely on my radar. My hope is that they extend in the Modus line (125-130), and add the S-Taper as no upcharge.



    New Mizuno irons are my biggest weak spot as for equipment.

    I'd also like to see them offer the DG 120 shafts as an option. Looking forward to trying these out...finally something that might kick the MP64's out of the bag.
  • ZurbZurb Smell the Glove Members Posts: 224
    I'm literally throwing money at my screen. It's funny how quickly I can forget that I hate Mizuno for not offering the 900tours or the MP5s in LH. I'm very interested to see a cross section of the SC model. I hope they don't do something stupid with their pricing. These will be kicking MP59s out of my bag.
  • wfrogge1wfrogge1 Members Posts: 1,237 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Combo set will be a consideration depending on how the SC's feel
  • nanosgnanosg Bone Crusher Members Posts: 100 ✭✭✭
    Won't be shocked if the HD is "high density" and equals....you guessed it...boron. Agree with previous post that boron complaints are a bit overstated and bet Mizuno wants to get away from advertising what is otherwise a great idea and has tour validation.

    How do the 7 irons feel in comparison?

    Ok, I'm sick of hearin "thank god, no boron," lol



    I have not hit my 25's yet so I can't compare them to my 68's and even when I'm able to swing, it's gonna be a **** of a different swing from the last time that I swung a club so I really won't be the yardstick to speak of the differences between the two irons.



    Obviously there will be the difference in that the 68 is a blade and the 25 is a MCB, however for those of you that PLAY a Mizzy blade, regardless of the model, what is the difference between your present blade and the boron steel iron, feel wise?



    I'm not lookin for a wagon jumper but someone who actually BAGS and PLAYS/PLAYED a Mizzy BLADE-



    Also, is there anyone that likes the 25's and why so?



    Thanks much🍻



    Have a great day/evening👊

    Hey Richard! There is no difference. People are crazy. The difference in feel isn't because of the boron, it's because the MP 25s have a hollow head design. The T7 wedges feel amazing and I could not tell you the difference between feel of my 53 and my mp 4 pw.
