Anyone still gaming the MX-23s? I still have a set but I haven’t played them in some time.

    In my opinion the majority of MX and MP mizuno irons are timeless. The 23's are no different. I don't play them anymore but I'm sure they'd hang with anything out today loft for loft. And probably feel better.

    Played them many irons sets ago - a nice set but you might want to compare it to what's out there in a sim at your local retailer.

    I thought so, been wanting a stiffer shaft in my gamers Ping G25s , and have been thinking about going a bit flatter. My MX-23s have S300s innthem and are 2deg flat, may need to give them another go.?

    Had these many iron sets ago. Would think they are still great irons to play. As stated above, the lofts on those would be different than the modern lofts you see on today’s iron sets.

    Re-retired mine just last winter, when I decided to make the move to graphite for age-related reasons. Great clubs, but I cant really ever see myself going back after my MP18 experience.

    Yes, and no plans to change. I reshafted them with some recoils over the winter due to some elbow issues and they continue to be great.

    Been playing my MX-25’s for a decade. Great feeling iron for sure. Just ordered the 919’s so these will retire to the garage. Single tear.

    Still? I am just starting to use them. I have a set coming this week from 3Balls. I have been playing MP 32's but I feel I could use a little more help. I hope they are everything everyone says about them much like the 32's.

    I grabbed a 4 iron to round out my combo set. I like how it looks and it has solid forgiveness and launch. I dig it. Mizuno irons are timeless in my book.

    Bought a set of a member here when I first joined the WRX. Played some of my best golf with them. They had dynalite shaft that supposedly is high launch. Used to hit the 4 iron 200 yards carry..maybe I need to switch to a softer 'high' launch shaft lol.

    I played the 25s for a while. If I can find a set, even just the heads i would buy again. They were so smooth.

    I have played my MX-20s forever now. Amazing blend of performance, forgiveness and feel with a great low offset look. I keep buying other sets of irons to keep in the closet for the backup bag though. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    The MX-20s were the best of all mx series irons due to least offset. Loving my apex cf16s now.
