MP 68 or MP 32s?

I'm in the market for another set of irons and I believe that I want to get either a set of MP 68s or MP 32s. I was hoping to get some opinions on these two sets. I'm going to put my C-Tapers into whichever set I go with.

    MP32 are weirdly forgiving. That's the direction I'd go if getting classic Mizzys. I loved my set. Also hear good things about the 33s.

    You can't really go wrong with either. The 32s are supposed to be easy to play for a blade. The 68s are said by some to be Mizuno's softest iron.
    I didn't like the MP32s I had, but that may well have been because the shafts, NSPRO 950S, were not a good match for me.
    I've toyed with the idea of getting a set of 68s, but the PW and 9i put me off a little.
    Can I ask why you've narrowed it down to these 2 particular sets? Availability? Because the 33s are, as balls_deep mentioned, certainly worth a look, as are, I think, the MP4s and 69s. The 69s in particular are pretty similar to the 68s, but with more trail edge relief, and a beefier muscle pad.

    Yeah if I get another set it will most likely be MP4 or 5

    Can’t go wrong with any of those options . 33’s May also pique your interest

    Honestly they were just the 2 that suit my eye the most. I actually briefly had a set of 33s, but I think my experience was tainted by having the wrong shafts in them. If I could find a set in good condition I'd give them another try.

    My opinion is likely not worth much, as it's the 3rd set of golf clubs I've played in my golfing life of about 20 years and I'm not good enough to FULLY appreciate them (I think I'm a 14 cap but that is flattering at the moment).

    Feel and looks are awesome. Definitely lose quite a bit of distance if you are much off the centre and you'll feel it in your hands, but I suppose that's standard for all clubs of that style. As was mentioned above, they are supposedly easy to hit compared to most blades (can't personally compare as I've only hit these). I've had some good rounds with them but have decided to make it easy on myself and get something with more forgiveness.
