Wanted to post a thread that had all the new Mizuno irons in one thread. All three new models MP20 Blade, MP-20 MMC, & MP20 HMB – Hot Metal Blade. If interested in the details here is a link to our article on the front-page... http://www.golfwrx.com/570818/new-mizuno-mp-20-irons-now-available-at-retail/

Side not I just got in from Discount dans my combo set of 4-6 HMB and 7-PW MP20 blade. The blades are in front of me right now and I can't think about anything else. They look fantastic and looks like a perfect size chassis. They do not look to small to play either. Same size as the PXG ST blade and touch bigger than say the Ping iBlade. 

The HMB have been getting great reviews on youtube as well. Seems to be a perfect blend of distance and spin with great launch numbers for a juiced up iron. I think the blend of HMB and MP20 blade could be a nice playable combo set.

Here are all three, then the blade, MMC, HMB then comparison pics.


MP-20 Blade (don't forget these have that copper underlay--- errrr)

Here is the New Mizuno MMC irons for 2020...

    I have the MP-20s in PW -7I -- with the Recoil Graphite shafts. Very nice - for some reason specially the 9 iron is just pure sweet. Coming from MP-5s -- don't see much or feel much difference. Both are Superb.

    Yes. Besides you guys, Mizuno is too. The LH only set MP-20 SEL is 3,4 iron HMB and 5-pw MB. 😊. I have a set on custom order through Discount Dans!

    Great set of photos those things are beautiful I hit the MBs at Dicks and they felt really nice. But noticed a set of MP33s on the used rack for 100 and had to snatch those. Not quite as soft/forgiving/or as good of distance but man Mizuno really excels at every aspect of irons.

    I'm still on the fence and in no hurry. Never hit blades before. What shafts did you go with? Did you hit the hmb pw?

    Great pictures. They are a beautiful irons.

    Shout out to Mizuno, ordered my irons custom and the were delivered with perfect swingweight specs and lofts. I had to tweak the lie angle on the HMB long irons but thats NBD. Nice to see the attention to detail!

    I hit the mp20 blade 7 iron tonight inside. Man it felt wonderful. I hit it more consistent than the mp20 hmb, p790, new mavrik irons, and hot metals.

    We will see how long I can hold out before buying a combo set.

    Never hit the HMB PW. I hit the combo set today next to the PXG Gen 3 combo set. The distance control is impeccable with the Mizzys. The feel of the MP-20 7-pw is totally different than the muted soft PXG. Trajectory is higher as is the spin comparing the MP-20 blade and the Gen 3 t. HMBs were shorter and higher spin than the PXG P as well.


    I went with the Project X lz for the Mizzy and the Oban CT-115 for the PXG.

    Hit the MB and MMC today against the T100 with Modus 3 120 and the feel of the Mizuno irons is just something that can't be replicated. The T100 felt nice but the MP 20 irons, even the MMC, felt great. I think I've decided on the MMC 4 and 5 and MB 6-PW with the Modus 3 120. The dispersion was tight and I could hit the shots I intended more with the MB and MMC. I love that Mizuno doesn't upcharge for this shaft.

    Is anyone else waiting for over a month on a set of MP-20s? I ordered back on December 4th and still no sign... The local Mizuno rep supposedly said there was a "minor backorder problem" but I have no details beyond that.


    I ordered 5&6 HMB, and 7-P MB, all with Modus 120 S, in case that is relevant at all.

    Great pics! I really shouldn't be playing a blade but as a lefty my options are limited and I didnt notice too much difference between the SEL (3,4 HMB 5-P MB) and the 919 forged. What do you think? Are they as punishing on mishits as other blades?

    In my experience blades are rarely more punishing than CBs, unless you’re coming from super GI options. I have always felt mishits in a more pronounced way from blades but I usually get just as good results as I would from a CB. I think that is where much of the fear of blades comes from. People give them a try and suddenly they can really feel off center strikes. They then interpret that as a terrible shot, whereas all it’s really doing is better communicating what happened at impact.


    Don't fear the blade!! :-)

    That’s a good question, I honestly can’t remember, the same guy has fit me 3 times so I forget to ask him those details. I have a feeling I am pretty standard L&L from Mizuno

    Haha, never thought of that!! TBH, nothing I have bought and been through the proper fitting process hasn’t worked so am hoping this set is the same. Clubs have arrived in country so hopefully can collect from DHL tomorrow. If so, a day off work on Monday is needed for a full familiarity session.

    Well, I am now!

    Been looking at shiny irons while taking in old WWOGs - keep coming back to these. This is the best compilation of resources I found for these - that search function works!

    My abilities may lead me to MMC in there vs. the blades, but I'm sure as heck going to hit them.

    I’m hitting 4-7 in HMB and 8-P in MB. I’m wanting to trade out the HMB 7 for either an MB or MMC. I feel like the HMBs will launch on you if the conditions are just right. Anyone experiencing flyers?

    I just received my custom MP-20 MB with KBS Tour 130 shafts. Standard lofts and upright 2 deg. I ordered from PGA superstore and had them in less than a week. I’ve been wanting a set of mizuno blades since the mid 90s. I’m diving in head first with 4-P in the MB. If necessary, I’m willing to get 4-6 in MMC, but I’d rather not. I’ll take pictures and report back soon.

    I just received my custom set of MP 20 SEL with PX LZ 6.0 & MCC Plus4's. They looked bigger in the store - what was I thinking??? I hit the demo set with DGS300 okay (not my preferred shaft) including the 5 & 6 irons but now they look very intimidating! Oh well...

    No need to worry! I have almost the same exact SEL set : ) PX LZ 6.0 with Zgrip. They are one of the most "forgiving" blades I have tried. they lowered my scores almost immediately vs Titleist T-200s (had to go back to blades after a short sting with GI clubs)
