I know the GF forged part but it has me guessing the maybe the shinny stripe on both 18's are maybe a co forged metal like the 58, 59 and 15's. I'm sure its not but strange not to keep it simple if not something new. Please don't be a boron anything though. Please.

It could very well be some sort of tungsten on the sole. I think everyone has made the boron thing out to be more than it actually is

I don't know. I'm on my 3rd set of MP-25's all with different shafts just to be sure. The 25's are some of the nicest and more compact Mizuno irons for Lefties ever made. The softest, IMHO, they are not. Still very good irons, but not MP 68 soft.

Another thread said something about Mizuno introducing three new MP lines this year.  So maybe there is a blade, this cavity, and perhaps a milled out version - similar to Srixon 965/765/565....
