Spotted: Mizuno MP-18 Irons

Published

on

Mizuno’s JPX-900 Tour irons are one of the hottest models on the PGA Tour, but it appears there’s a new iron in the works at Mizuno that’s designed with the best golfers in the world in mind.

Here’s a photo of what looks to be Mizuno’s next muscleback iron, the MP-18. We’re guessing it’s the follow-up to Mizuno’s widely praised MP-4 and MP-5 muscleback irons.

    the real april fools joke is if they announced they were going to release their top model again in LH. Mizuno is a joke until they stop ignoring 25% of the golf population

      mate i don’t think that golf has a disproportionate mix of left handers to the general population. Read anywhere its 10% on average.. so for you lefties… learn to play the RIGHT way.

        Went into my local Golf Galaxy the other day. They had a section full of left-handed clubs. Was told they hardly ever sell any.

    I’ll stick to my MP-32’s and MX-20’s from the Mizuno brand as part of my rotation which includes Titleist 714 AP1’s.

    Hate ‘matte’ finish on musclebacks. Looks cheap. But to keep the chrome looking good you gotta put covers on them. Which sucks. Also, they had such good lines on the MP-4/5 series, this looks ridiculous.

      LOL!
      1. Looks cheap? Not even close…
      2. Covers? I wish I had a dollar for every good player I saw with beat up blades. They are tools…next nice set around the corner.

      You said it. Shank! And I was so looking forward to the news of the new blades. I’ll pass. That graphic in the centre is FUGLY. Can’t do it

        Graphic? Isn’t that just the light??

        • S Hitter

          Apr 3, 2017 at 3:48 am

          Naw. It’s that black line graphic with the name of the club on it. Kinda like the T5 wedge with the black band, except on this MP, the name of the club is on it. Kills me. Too much, too busy. Not that I’m looking at the back of the iron to hit the damned thing, I just think it’s unnecessary

            I’m pretty sure it’s not a graphic, Mizuno never puts ‘graphics’ on their MP lines. Could be a simple polish line being reflected by the light. The picture is pretty obscured.

              Apr 3, 2017 at 12:24 pm

              The MP-18 writing is in that bar across the middle. I don’t like the cut bar section across the middle, nor the name of the club written there.

              • Chris

                Apr 3, 2017 at 12:50 pm

                If you look closely, I think it’s a chrome ‘strip’ against the brushed finish. There is no badge or bar there. Look @ the 6 iron…

                  By bar he meant that there is a strip. Strip, bar, what difference does it make. It’s a strip-bar-slash-dash-line across the middle. Ugly.

                  Looks like the black line similar to the mp25 model. Not a big deal to me they still are not too “busy” though they look similar to the ping iblade imo, though they are at least forged.

        New Blades? A blade is a blade whether it is new or 10 yrs old, a blade is a blade and the older ones work just a well and maybe better. It”s all in marketing and staying inbusness. Enjoy whatever you have or want.

        • S Hitter

          Apr 3, 2017 at 12:26 pm

          Right, but they’re not going to just reproduce the same MP-14 or 29 every year like they should, so this is what we are left with. And with very few MP numbers left to name these clubs, when they could just continue to make the same models like MP-68 or 69 and call it a day

    Beautiful but more than I can handle.

    They look like a bag full of wedges (T4s or T5s) turned into a set of clubs – could be nice transition from my 32s

Indi Golf introduces two new putter designs featuring the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology

Published

on

Indi Golf Alisson Black Matte

Indi Golf has unveiled two new putter designs in two different finishes named Allison and Ramone.

The Allison and Ramone flatsticks come in both black and chrome finishes and contains the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology which, according to the company, eliminates miss-hits no matter where the ball is struck on the face.

Speaking on the new additions, Rob Lang, General Manager, Indi Golf, stated

“After designing wedges for the past few years, the putter category was the most logical next step for us in our mission to help golfers make their short game their best game.

“We’ve been developing the technology for these putters for over a year now and we’re confident they will help golfers make more putts. We’re excited to finally introduce them.”

The Allison putter is a face-balanced mid-size mallet, which features a double-bend shaft which aims at creating a perfectly face-balanced putter for the player that uses a straight back, straight through putting stroke.

The Ramone, a toe-hang blade putter, features a 30-degree toe-hang, which is aimed towards the player that favors an arced putting stroke.

As well as the Colossal Sweet Spot Technology, both of the new additions from Indi Golf are precision CNC milled and are constructed from Aircraft Grade Aluminum. The flat-sticks also contain toe and heel tungsten weighting, designed for increased stroke stability and maximum feel for ultimate consistency.

The putters are available with matte black or satin chrome finishes in 33”, 34” or 35” lengths and customers can also choose between a Lamkin Deep Etched Pistol putter grip, upper Stroke Traxion Tour 2.0, Traxion Pistol GT Tour or Traxion Claw 2.0 grip.

The putters are currently available for pre-sale at www.indigolfclubs.com, with inventory beginning middle of December. The MSRP for both putters is $449.99, and during the pre-sale, the price is $329.99.

Forum Thread of the Day: “How often to replace your wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from cookszn who asks WRXers how often do they change their wedges. Cookszn also asks the same question focusing on those who don’t have the fortune to be able to play the game in winter months, and our members have been sharing their thoughts, with many following a variety of different philosophies.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MattyO1984: “Lob Wedge, every year to 18 months. Sand and Gap, every 24-36 months.”
  • dlygrisse: “Every 2-3 years. For me, it’s more of a visual check, if the chrome is wearing off and the grooves are getting a bit dodgy. I play about 10 months a year on average. For me, though, it really depends on how much you practice. If you are just playing golf 20-40 times a year or so you really won’t get much wear. But if you practice bunker shots and work on your short game on a weekly basis, then you may need new wedges every season.”
  • Oz Max: “I’ve had my set for 5 years now, and they still spin a lot, enough to zip back a few meters on a pitch shot (when I make a good contact that is!). Though I loom after them, clean the grooves regularly and use one of those regrooving tools, they are perfect to keep the edges sharp every so often.”
  • Zigzog: “I am using some Cleveland 588 Tour Action at the moment, at least 15 years old – they still spin plenty for me. New wedges will give more initial bite, but this will stop after a handful of rounds IMO – so for me, I am more comfortable with what I know.”
  • RichieHunt: “About once every 12-15 months.”
  • Roody: “I play about 100 rounds a season. I just replaced my 60-degree wedge last week. The previous one was 5 years old. I have a groove sharpener that I use on the wedges once or twice a season. Seems to keep them “good enough” for my needs.”
