Love my MP-59's from the first swing. I just put C-taper S+ in mine and I have finally found a setup that looks, performs, and feels what I have been looking for. I may actually have to take a break from hoe'ing.

3W: Tour Edge Exotic CBX, GD Tour AD-IZ 7x
Hybrid: 19* XCG7 Matrix Red Tie S
4 iron: PXG 0311P Gen 4 TT Elevate Tour X
5iron-PW: Mizuno Pro 223 Project X LZ 6.0
Wedges: Mizuno T20 51*, 56*, 60* TT DG Tour S400
Putter: Swag Tour Suave Too 34.5"

Yeah bro keep the 53's........ Had the 59 and they are great even though I had the wrong shaft...... But the 53 are more forgiving have the same sole grind .... Little extra forgiveness is nice, I am enjoying mine especially since ingot the right shaft


59's if your an excellent ballstriker

Just traded in my TM MC and what a difference going from TM back to mizuno!!! No comparison!

Good call keeping the 53's. The 59's are gorgeous and of course they are a newer model. I've demoed them both extensively and the 53's are significantly more forgiving without giving anything up.
IMO the 59's are closer to the 69's in terms of forgiveness than they are to the 53's.

Again, the 59's are beautiful but I wouldn't be surprised if you see quite a few sets in the BST after a couple months of spring golf....

I just finished the MP59 customization ordering process. Here's a snapshot of the shaft options available. Fairly wide choice, but somewhat conservative. In other words, they wait and see if there is sustained demand for a shaft before making it an offering.

 

ie: KBS Tour's are on the list; the C-Tapers aren't yet.

For a company that prides themselves on customizing sets for their consumers, they need to step up their game. I would love to order some 59's from the factory with some Modus3's.

I think you have a good bit of guys that look at two brands: Mizuno and Titleist. Not having all the shaft selections is enough reason for a fitter to recommend Titleist over Mizuno, or for a consumer to to choose Titleist on their own.

Under the hood. This titanium piece is epoxied into the forged Mizuno head. If you enlarge the below shots you will see the clear milky epoxy border around the insert....fwiw.

(edit: insert could be hammered/forged into place and then finished with a milky sealer - really no idea here)

So what your saying is? That the titanium is not forged into the head as advertised, but rather epoxied in.

As far as I know, the titanium piece is the hunk of metal in the center of the club, not the badge. That's just for show as titanium isn't very shiny!

No. Not at all - I was just showing a pic. I have no dog in this fight.

Exactly - No foul by Mizuno. Titanium is not a pretty metal.
