    Are we still thinking September for the release? Not sure if I should wait for these or just get MP-25's now.

    I would like to see a set of dinged up t7 wedges because mine after half a year look brand new with a few dings. My J15s look like they were thrown in a dryer. Boron doesn't affect the softness? Sure.




    The boron WAS added to the T7's to add durability to the grooves so consumers could have a forged wedge that would last a little longer. More of the feel aspect comes from the sound and design, which is why Mizuno focuses so much on acoustics in the MP line. I didn't like the 25's b/c I thought the super thin face, not boron, made them clicky, similar sound to the multi material MP's (58/59/15). There is only a fraction of a percent of boron. Played Mizuno MP's for over 10 years. Haven't hit the T7's b/c I'm still playing T5's, I don't go though wedges often. 900 Tour and MP-5 are same material, but b/c of the design I thought they felt different, not bad, just different.




    I own the following Mizuno wedges: MP Series, MP-R12, MP-R4, T5, and now T7. Anyone who says that the addition of Boron to the T7 dramatically changes the feel is suffering from delusion. I guarantee that in a blind test that almost no one would be able to determine which wedge was the T7 with boron.



    I for one appreciate the addition of the boron to keep the T7 grooves sharper longer. If Mizuno hadn't come out with the MP-25 series first (with the addition of boron) then I don't think the poor reputation of this technology would have accompanied it. Everyone equated the feel of the MP-25 design with the addition of the boron when the feel was due to the design.

    Anybody catch these yet/ I wonder what the SC and GF Forged HD mean. I'm glad they are gonna be offered LH and look compact. Hopefully the PW will be as well.




    GF forged? Grain flow?

    Some resemblance, I'd be surprised if the retail versions aren't chrome though.

    I had the mp25...did not care for the feel. I love my MP64 and my t7 wedges. I'm really hoping we see a mp iron more along the lines of the mp64 to compliment the blades so we can forget the mp25...

    I guess I'm in the minority on the MP-25 feel. They feel solid to me in the best way. If I had to rank them I'd put them just behind the mp5 and just ahead of the 900tour. All time best feel was the mp33.

    I have not, but assume they feel spectacular. Too much blade for my game these days. Played the 33's in college and they'll always be my favorite. Can't be a Mizzy fanatic without being a romantic.

    The only 2 fairly recent offering from Mizuno that I did not care for the feel on was the 25's and the 15's.



    54/64/4/5/900F/900T all feel great, with the 4/5's the softest, the rest is splitting hairs.

    ****, I am such a Mizuno fan I even think the 900 Hot Metals feel great. I have a bicycle with a chromoly steel frame. It is also strong and smooth.



    And sooner or later, I am going to try some MP4s because I just love how they look.

    I am very interested to know how the short irons look. Did they make them more compact like the 900T, and 900F?

    So the SC stands for "semi-cavity"?

    I think consensus is split cavity.

    So have we established where these sit in the line up? Look similar to the 25s minus the badging? Are these more in line with the JPX forged or tours?

    Most likely a solid forging without an undercut to create a thin face. To me, the 25's felt clicky because of the thin face.

    Agreed 100%!



    I have played Mizuno irons for the last 10 years, everything from MP53, 63's, 64's, 15's, etc.. and the mp25's feel every bid as good as all of them including the 64's. I would have to think if people are feeling a difference there just miss hitting them!
