My new holy grail??? Mizuno MP 59’s

Published

Written by GolfWRX member: golfware

Whoa. I’m just speechless with these irons. Just speechless. Seriously….

So I see them in the the Golfmart today while my tires are getting changed. Saw them last night in Golf Digest and just had to try them. I’ve been lusting after the PING Anser irons for quite some time, but wanted to try them on a whim.

Looks: THESE are what an iron looks like. Whoa. While I love my Diablo Forged immensely, these irons are just so simple and pure at setup. The transition from hosel to face is so so smooth, and seamless. Just the right amount of offset, even in the PW! And I’ve never been a fan of the Mizzy PW, but these are slick. I just can’t believe how pleasing these are to my eye. Wow!

Feel: okay, so I’ve been a convert to forged for quite sometime. My Diablo Forged have converted me. Really. And while the Anser’s and AP2’s are kinda a soft thud, I’m finding a hard time finding the correct words to describethe feel of these. The word “pure” can be so overused these days, but it’s accurate assertion for these. Dang. Even with my least favorite shaft, the DGS 300’s, the feel is amazing. Mizzy is on to SOMETHING with these.

Dispersion: well. These won hands down. On the LM, I could put a blanket over my shots. 4 iron, 6-iron, 7-iron, 9-iron. Didnt matter. Just such a tight dispersion. Wow.

Distance: since I hit them on a LM, won’t go into details, but let ms say I was impressed. Very impressed.

All in all, I’m thoroughly impressed. I want to use the Mizzy iron fitter to get the correct shaft, although heck, I may just go with the DGS300’s.

I’ll take pics soon as a comparion with others.

WOW!!!

    These Mizzy’s are so clean. I’m still fighting the demon in me that decided to go with the 53’s rather than the 59’s. I’m an intermediate player that shoots anywhere from 84-92. I did hit the 53’s better consistantly but like look/workability better of the 59’s. Any suggestions if you think the 59’s would be a good fit for me to switch to? Or are they really a “players” club?

    I have tried these in the store as well and was very impressed. I have played Mizunos for a number of years and can’t seem to get away from them. I need new irons like the proverbial hole in the head, but these have created a serious itch.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
