I've been using a set of MP-32's since about 2012 and have yet to kick them out. I pretty much learned on them and while many perceive there are "easier" options to hit, I would definitely recommend the MP-32's if you're looking to take the game a little more serious. Or at least that's why I originally got them (originally bought some clones and it was the worst idea ever). It's helped my ballstriking and wedge play tremendously. I've cheated on my Mizuno's by trying to make them my "backup set" and have churned and turned through many sets including: 2008 AP2's, Cobra Amp (those orange ones), Ping i15's, 714 AP2's, Nike Vapor Pro Combos, Nike Vapor Fly Pro (the blue and black), and recently the JPX-850. All were good, but just too thick for me. I couldn't get under the ball or strike it as well as my MP-32's. Plus, many of the newer ones like the 714 AP2's, Nike Vapor PC's, Fly Pro's, and JPX-850's all have juiced lofts. I like more of the traditional lofts or at least, a 7 iron to be a 7 iron and not have to think, "Okay, I'd usually use a 7 for this, but I'll the 8." I had the KBS C-Taper 120 S+ in the MP-32's since I got them, but swapped them out last year with some Nippon Modus 3 120S shafts and I don't think I've ever cheat on my Mizuno's again. Oh, and they're super soft too. If I just look at them, they get scratched.
