Best Mizuno Blades

I am thinking about getting some Mizzy blades to replace my almost worn out MP-60. I see some great value items in the second hand market so wanted to see which Mizuno MB irons are worth considering as I might not be able to test them first before purchase. Thanks in advance!

    i loved my 60/68 combo set. It gave me the ease of hitting the long irons and the better playability of the 6-pw. I also have a set of either 32's or 33;s sitting in the box collecting dust.

    I went from MP 60s to a mixed set of MP H5/25/5. Generally, I find the 5s in the 6-PW to play pretty similarly to the way the 60s played. Can't comment on the longer irons, though. But, I agree with Warrick that the 5s are pretty darn forgiving for a blade and that would be my suggestion if you're looking for a full set of blades. Another option would be the MP 32s (they have the same cut muscle as the 60s) if you can find a set in good shape.

    I love my MP18 MMCs. I would highly recommend hitting them first though. Maybe you can find them new somewhere and demo them before purchasing them used.

    Also, for older models, 32's are beloved, and 33's but not as forgiving.

    Of the muscleback MP’s, I rank the 5’s most forgiving, with the 69’s next. I can’t really handle a full set of blades so I typically sub out the 4 and 5 irons. Of the MP CB’s, my favorites are the 53 and then the 59. The MP53 long irons have a deep/low COG and for me launch like the MP18 MMC Fli-Hi’s.

    Mp14 and mp29 are the ****.

    Mp5 is my gamer.



    Mp33 is fantastic as well. I like them more than the mp4.

    I am a big fan of the 14s and 4s. That said, my current gamers are the 18s and I’m not sure how they could be improved upon. Looks and feel are too notch and they might be the best at address and through the turf.

    They really nailed the transition from 8-pw for the 18’s. They look incredible at address!

    MBs are nice but the 64 is the clear upgrade from what you have been using for so many years. I think you'll find that they are just what you needed to replace your 60s. The 64 is absolutely phenomenal and can be found for a good deal in great shape.

    How are the 32s for having a touch of forgiveness mixed in? A nice 2-PW set near me for cheap I'm thinking of grabbing as a back up set/improver set.

    I agree with this as well. feel of the 4's may be the best they've ever done. The 5's although not all that much different looking seem to be playable to so many more golfers. may be your best bet

    The MP 60 has a very low center of gravity. If you really like them, I'd try to hunt down another set of them. If not, the next 4 lowest center of gravity MP's among newer offerings are:



    - MP 54

    - MP 53

    - MP 4

    - MP 64

    Low CG will encourage a higher ball flight with less spin. Low CG also tends to feel better for "pickers" who don't hit down forcefully. I don't know anything about the OP's game but these I think would tend to play the most similar to the 60.



    Going back further, two blades that have lower CG than the MP-60 are the MP-33 and the MP-14, both very highly regarded offerings from Mizuno. Coincidence?

    You are right. I don't create huge divots. So i should test out irons that have low cg after reading what you have advised. Where can i find out cg comparison charts for Mizuno irons?

    Look at the column "actual VCOG".



    I don't pay attention to the overall MPF rating at all but certain individual measures like the VCOG and the MOI are useful.



    Interesting that the MP-18 SC, which many complain is pretty tough to hit, has the highest VCOG of any Mizuno iron.

    Yeah. I realize MPF is highly controversial on here, but I've found it to be pretty accurate in terms of what I've hit. That said, I find my i200 as forgiving as GI irons and they are rated in the mid 400s.

    Played with Mizzy29s for quite awhile and I loved them. However some don’t like the offset in the shorter irons. Mp14s are pretty nice too.
