    I'm interested in the HMP's, but having a tough time finding a list of available shafts. These aren't even an option to purchase off the Canadian site yet.



    As I'm aging I'm finding that graphite shafts help prevent a lot of the wrist and elbow discomfort I've been feeling.

    You can order any of the available Mizuno iron shafts with them.

    So, I found the shafts/grips link. Only three options for graphite: True Temper ProjectX LZ, LZ Tour and the Recoil 95. Not exactly a plethora of options.

    Love the look of these at address but the sole width is a no go for me I'm afraid




    Did you hit them? What are you playing now?



    I’ve done indoor and outdoor testing. The way Mizuno countoured the sole I found the HM Pro’s went through the turf very well. Same out of thick juicy winter rough. My MMC’s have thinner soles than the HM Pro and I had zero issues. I hit my wife’s HM irons without any issue with the sole.
    I am playing the SC and yes I have tried them both indoors and out. It may just be psychological but I have always been very sensitive to sole width - I guess we are all different

    Hit both the Hot Metal and HM Pro side by side today. Agree 100% with the sole comment. Not exactly like you but I went in thinking HM was all mine but shot after shot was much cleaner contact with the HM Pro. Thinner sole of the Pro made a big difference for my swing. Really wish the HM Pro had the same offset as the forged...!

    I didnt get to hit HMP today but had the 9 iron in my hand. Very compact from heel to toe and nice topline. I was very impressed with looks at address. I really dislike the 919 forged in the looks department so I was really surprised how much I liked these. Fitter carries all the major brands and said they are selling a ton of it the HMP already. I was also told that Brooks Koepka has put a 4 iron HMP in his bag. Will have to see if that is true tomorrow when the Players starts.

    How does Mizuno figure out loft adjustments when doing combos sets? If a combo set is done with HMP/Forged, how are lofts adjusted when one face is "hot?" It has to be more than just making the lofts equal to full sets?

    Coming from the i210's in power spec the HM Pro's are considerably longer. But they also seem to be more forgiving. With the one round I have played with the HM Pro's its a small sample size but I like what I see.




    I am very interested in your thoughts here...I was fitted and I am between these two sets. I want to pull the trigger on HMP's but I am somewhat concerned about the low bounce as I am little bit of a digger.



    If you or anyone else has any thoughts on this, I would appreciate it.

    I will say that for the most part since the sole is wide and the leading edge is rounded on the HM Pro's the bounce should not come into play. If you catch these irons fat or dig I would think it would be more of a swing fault than club issue. Also make sure your lie is set up correctly. I played the Power Spec and Blue Dot (1* upright) in the i210's and those lie settings are almost 2* up from the standard lie of the HM Pro's. I had the HM Pro's bent 1* weak to increase spin a smidge and 1* upright. hope this helps.

    Thanks - very helpful. I am playing the Mizuno 800's now and thought I may try more bounce but I am leaning to HMP's. Thanks for the heads up on the lie angles. Going to hit both outside and then get final fitting.



    Where are you distance-wise with the HMP's bent weak compared to the i200 power spec?

    I am still a full club longer with the HMP's than the i210 power spec. So about 165 carry with the HMP

    Agreed. I think a lot of the "digger" comments are people getting steep on the downswing and catching it even just a touch heavy. Tour guys who are great at shallowing the downswing and technically have a shallow angle of attack are still taking pelts 4 inches after the ball have no issue with low bounce. Also, the HMP have pretty wide soles on them so will still have lots of "effective" bounce.

    I just came from the shop today and spent an hour hitting because well, mine haven't arrived yet. And I told them I was going to take a while because of that.



    I'm kind of on the fence with the hybrids. I've been having success with the more iron-like hybrids (GAPR, Crossover) and the Mizuno hybrids are pretty big.

    I got 4/5 hot metal and 6/pw pro, instead of hybrids. So far so good. Can see the back out of HM, almost like a crossover.

    I'd love to game that setup but I've lost some swing speed over the years. That little extra heft of the iron-type hybrids really helps. Maybe once my swing is more grooved...

    Got my set 4-9 CTLX 1 strong this week and had 2 range sessions and 27 holes. They're long, like crazy long. Almost 1.5 clubs and fly really high. But they're very workable, you can lower the flight if you want. That's the main difference with P790 and i500 which I owned also. I couldn't control a punch shot with them, the face was too hot sometimes and just flew by. HM Pro will fly and stop, 9 iron even spun back a couple of yards to my surprise.

    Forgiveness is ridiculous, thin shots will run maybe 90% of the distance and fat shots will fly less but compensate with roll. Feel is ok, my previous set was a MP18 MB and it's hard to beat. Sound is a little weird but decent, doesn't have the same twack on solid shots but you can tell right away when you missed the sweet spot.

    Overall I'm happy and plan to keep for the remainder of 2019. It's obviously a distance iron but like others said it's mostly due to loft. I think Mizuno has a winner here, it's not as expensive as other clubs in the market and they definitely deliver. If you're like me who's getting older and losing distance, please give these a try.

    This right here is why I keep going back to test the HM Pro irons. I love my MMC’s and still do however picking up over 5 yards per club with no loss of playability consistency or accuracy is something I can’t ignore.

    Got my set 4-9 CTLX 1 strong this week and had 2 range sessions and 27 holes. They're long, like crazy long. Almost 1.5 clubs and fly really high. But they're very workable, you can lower the flight if you want. That's the main difference with P790 and i500 which I owned also. I couldn't control a punch shot with them, the face was too hot sometimes and just flew by. HM Pro will fly and stop, 9 iron even spun back a couple of yards to my surprise.

    Forgiveness is ridiculous, thin shots will run maybe 90% of the distance and fat shots will fly less but compensate with roll. Feel is ok, my previous set was a MP18 MB and it's hard to beat. Sound is a little weird but decent, doesn't have the same twack on solid shots but you can tell right away when you missed the sweet spot.

    Overall I'm happy and plan to keep for the remainder of 2019. It's obviously a distance iron but like others said it's mostly due to loft. I think Mizuno has a winner here, it's not as expensive as other clubs in the market and they definitely deliver. If you're like me who's getting older and losing distance, please give these a try.




    Have you played the CTL for a while? I’m a long time CT guy and looking to maybe buy a set with CTLX this time around. Do you really like them?

    Thanks!

    I played them a few years back and really liked. I used to play X100 but tried something lighter due to an annoying on and off tennis elbow.

    My HM Pro 5-PW plus 919 HM Gap wedge came in yesterday. Took about a week or so to get them from when I was fitted and the order was placed. Unfortunately, I only got to hit about ten balls with them yesterday before I needed to head out but they seemed great so far from that small sample size. I went with the Project X LZ 5.5 shafts and the MCC Plus 4 grips. I think it's going to be a good set up for me, although I have to say the MCC Plus 4's may be a bit of an adjustment for me, coming from the Winn Dri-tac. I like bigger grips, so that shouldn't be an issue, but the firmness is definitely going to be something I need to adjust to from the soft Dri-tacs.

    Anyway, I hope I can get a range session and some time out on the course this weekend to confirm (hopefully!) that I made a good choice.

    I ordered a Hot Metal Pro 4 iron direct from Mizuno and it came back so out of spec. 1) They built it with a standard Hot Metal head, not the pro 2) Instead of a midsize grip they installed a std and added +4 tape 3) and loft was off by 2 deg. Pretty disappointed in the Mizuno's build quality.

    Picking my 919 HMPs tomorrow. Trying to decide if I should pick up the set's gap wedge or pick up a 50 wedge.

    I’d get a 50 wedge solely based on the fact the hot metal gap isn’t the pro version and looks out of place 😂

    If you can’t play, display. I have no issue going on the basis of looks. Besides, can’t really go wrong with that blue ion s18. Looker and a performer.
