    Mizuno, because of all major brands they have the most disrespect for better left handed players since they stopped making the mp68s.

    I invest in brands that are lefty friendly like Callaway and Titleist. Just got the AP3s and love them.

    Mizuno isn't disrespecting anyone, it's a financial decision on their part. Makes no sense as a business model for a company like that to maybe break even making left handed clubs. Same reason the majority of people aren't out buying PXG irons because of the price.

    Most of the other manufacturers have no problem producing a good selection of left handed stuff.

    You do realize most other manufacturers are significantly larger and can profit from making left handed clubs. Left handed people make up like 10% of the population and probably half of that percentage for golfers. Mizuno also mostly makes forged irons which are much more difficult and expensive to make. It's really a ridiculous statement to make about Mizuno. It makes no sense for a company that size to make left handed irons which they would just lose money producing.

    Larger than Mizuno!!?? Mizuno had almost 2 billion dollars worth of sales in the U.S alone back in 2017. Mizuno is HUGE !!!!

    Probably catch some flack for this but Ping although the blueprints want to change my mind. But the one irons I won’t play are Srixon. I was fit into the Srixon 745 irons and Apex Pro and elected to go apex. The srixons blade length just looked like a **** shovel and I don’t know what it was just didn’t suit my eye.

    I won’t play Ping either. I just won’t. They look awful and always have. I know they’re good clubs, but I just can’t do it.

    Please keep thinking this; it lets me pick up FG Tour irons for a song on the used market.

    That is because Mizuno is equivalent to Wilson in the US. They are in every ball sport. The largest size of their profits come from non-golf sports. Baseball/softball is probably their biggest money maker.

    As for OPs question, Titleist. Not because I don't want to, but I think they are over rated, and I can save cash and get the same results elsewhere.

    Irons with offset. A very small amount is maybe acceptable in the long irons. But generally, minimal offset is key.

    For reference I had the Apex Pros... nice iron, too much offset though...

    I understant that. But Happy was trying to say Mizuno is too small of a company to invest much in left handed equipment and that's just bs.
