After 5 years of looking for a new set of MP53 I found these.



Refinished, look great - as close to new as you can get.



I'll sleep like a baby tonight.

    I like his work but I prefer the black chrome finish they use on some sets.



    Or the gray-blue finish on the new Titleist blue slate wedges.



    Excellent set of MP53’s. Have a set and they are so playable.

    Say what?



    Those ferrules make the clubheads and shafts pop!!



    No way I'd jack with those ferrules. Looks about as good as possible.



    Shoot me a note if/when you offload these.

    Ohhh man! I was just looking at their refinished sets the other day! Some sweet Mizuno sets and a set of Titliest 690s. I love the look and seems like it holds up really well!

    Those are beauty’s kgeorge78, the 53’s are still at the top of my best irons ever list and they look even better in black. I still have nightmares about selling my 53/63 combo set.

    Jeez I wouldnt even hit those frankly. I have the real unicorn set a basically new set of lefty MP 53s found them on PGA tour Superstore couple years ago havent even hit them . Frankly Mizuno (Vosh you reading this) should re release MP53 with modern lofts and HD Grain Flow forged would be a massive seller.

    I think the lofts were fine. The PW was 46. I would pay a fricken mint for a brand new set 3-PW S300 stock. I know somebody must have one somewhere!



    I call mizuno every few months to see if there are plans of re releasing lol.
