Mizuno MP-20 vs Titleist MB 620

redheadredhead Members Posts: 722 ✭✭✭✭✭

Any thoughts on these? I'm always leaning towards the soft buttery feels, but don't really like the glaring looks of Mizuno. On the other hand, the satin finish on Titliest looks stunning. I've been gaming 712 MB for a short while but then came back to Mizuno.

    Only hit the Titleist but for me Titleist wins on looks but Mizuno as usual wins on feel (educated guess as MP20 not out yet)
    If only Titleist felt soft they would have me for life!
    (And for reference I have a set of 718 MB’s)

    Not sure how anyone can say Titleist wins on looks.
    I guess when it's coming from the same people who say Mizuno wins on feel, "but I never hit them"..then you can take everything they say with a grain if salt.

    Mizuno are softer then the titleist for sure. But I don’t get the whole “Mizuno butter” thing myself. I have played Mp5, mp4 and the mp18 blades and my Callaway Apex mb are way softer then any of those

    That glaring look can be cleared up by Yoro Mizuno or simply having them bead blasted a bit

    Wait to hit the mp20 mb if you want to play an entire set of mbs. Mizuno has a history of making great long irons. The 620 mb is slightly better looking and better feeling than the 718 mb, but I'll give the the nod to the 718 mb 4 iron over the 620 mb 4 iron which was the only long iron I hit in my fitting, and I own the 718 mbs. Titleist may have gone to sleep designing the 620 mb long irons figuring these sets will be blended, and rightfully so because the t100 4 iron was incredible.
    If you don't like Mizuno mirror finish gently rub the irons with extra fine steel wool and it will change the club to satin. Just rub horizontal in straight lines so you don't make swirls.

    I actually think the older generation Callaway MB blades were softer. I think we are arguing about quality control when we luck out on a set being softer than expected versus another brand. It’s like finding a unicorn in the wild...

    620s look fantastic. The clean back of the blade is how they should have been for ages now, but marketing...

    I thought the new 620 MB was softer than previous generations. Titleist has thinner top lines. Mizuno is nice but on the chunkier side especially when you get to the PW. 620 MB/CB is now just a timeless looking club. Agree with the feel of Mizuno however. The grain flow forging process they have locked up pretty good. Haven't seen in hand the new MP20 but vids make them look nice. Agree on the glare. Gaming MP 18 now and will say the club has gotten pretty banged up. Dents and bruises. Softer metal?Will be testing both head to head this week to make final determination. Which club, 620MB or MP20 (or MP18 if you have) is more forgiving overall?
