Forgiveness is closer to the AP2 IMO.  As with most Mizuno's, they go through the turf very well.  Would not recommend if your a massive divot taker, soles are a little thin, but not as thin as some of there other offerings.  If your looking at the combining the MMC Fli-Hi's with the MMC's, they are definitely more forgiving in the 4,5 and 6 irons, and feel good for not being a forged club.

AP2 is definitely a solid comparison.  I just put together a set of the MMC Fli-Hi (3-5) MMC (6-8) and MP18 Blade (9,PW) and I am absolutely pouring these irons.  I went through. Full fitting before purchase and they was fit once again after purchase to fine tune the loft and lie of each club.  Couldn’t be happier.  My favorite set since my Mizuno Pro’s I played years ago.

Trying to decide if I'm ready to move on from my z545s.  Played and enjoyed the 714 AP2, so sounds like these might be a good fit for me.  I've hit them and liked them, but doubt I would get fitted for them.  I have a coach that I can get to tweek them for me afterward.

I have 4-6 fli-hi, 7-8 MMC, 9-P MB, and agree phenomenal combo set.  I would have went all MMC, but the 9-P got a bit too chunky..

I have not owned any of the other sets, came from JPX 900F ( still have), comparable in forgiveness to the 900F outside of the 9-P.

I would put the MMC somewhere between the Z565 & Z765.  I was very torn between the 3 sets but eventually settled on a MMC & Fli-hi set

Agreed on the above post...closer to 765's than 565's i think.  Also a bit bigger than AP2's, but not nearly as chunky as AP3's.  I also own a set of I200's and while those long irons may be a touch more forgiving, the MMC's are much better looking in the 4-6 irons than the Pings.

I came from JPX 900 Tours, and to me, the MMC fits in between the 900 tour and forged sets, size and forgiveness wise.

I'm also more of a sweeper, so Mizuno MP's have always been a good fit for me.  But even when I need to get steep on something out of the rough, they feel like they're in and out with minimal resistance.  A bit cleaner than my Pings it seems.

I play to a 3hc and have played Mizuno for over 15 years.  IMO, the MMC is one of their top 2 all-around sets to date.  There's nothing it doesnt do well
