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.

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK PRO Orange 80 Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
