I've searched a few of the MP18 SC Threads but I'm looking for some Real world on course reviews.

The online reviews are amazing and to me they look and feel fantastic.

Are they as unforgiving as I'm reading here? Can an AP2 player use them?  

How is the flight / distance / feel???


Would order a 3-pW Set with S300 like the classic MP irons came with back in the day off the rack!

I've been playing them for several months now and live them. I'm a 2 ish handicap and more of a sweeper of the ball and the sole grind / bounce is really nice for my swing. I have the KBS 120's in them and I almost never get a ball that balloons. They look perfect at address. They're Mizuno's.

I have the SC in 4-7 and MB 8-PW and love these irons!  The SC looks like a blade but playable and with the lower center of gravity I dont have trouble getting a good flight at all.  I have KBS C taper 120s per my fitting, Im tall and a high ball hitter so go get fit.  Classy clubs here, you wont regret it.  So solid when hit pure but no less forgiving than anything else in the category.

The SC's are quite nice, not sure they are as soft as the MB's, but that's to be expected. They sit perfectly in a combo set with the MB's or as the scoring clubs with some MMC's.

I fell into the "club ho" category this last summer.  Sold my Ping G irons after buying a set of used i200's.  They weren't nearly as hard to hit as I thought and felt way better than my "G" irons.  Then along came the 50% deal on gen one PXG's so I ordered a set of those in XF, a "game improvement" iron.  They felt great but looked a bit chunky to my eye.  Played those and got some crazy idea I wanted to try a more bladed club for the fun of it, I am a 20 handicap after all.  Missed a nice used set of TItleist MB irons but found a nice set of Mizuno 18-SC's with KBS 120 shafts in the lefty buy sell section and took the plunge.  They looked pretty small but they appealed to my eye.  Took them to the range and gave them a shot.  First few were low stingers but once I got the feel for them they weren't nearly as hard to hit as I'd expected.  And when you find the center of the face, the feel is almost no feel at all, so smooth.  Gave up some distance from the PXG's but I attribute that to more conventional lofts on the Mizunos.  I've gamed the Mizunos a few rounds now, even in winter conditions and scored the same if not better than with my PXG "game improvement" irons.  

Next chapter, found a deal on a barely hit set of Titleist MB 716 irons and bought them to continue the experiment.  They are definitely smaller and harder to hit than the Mizunos but I'm going to give them a try on the course when the weather is better.

After that rambling story, my point is, I'm a 20 handicap and have gamed the Mizunos and will continue to do so.  The PXG's are going to go up for sale, along with my i200's.  The Titleist's feel a lot more harsh on mis-hits than the Mizunos and the 18-SC's are bliss when struck in the sweet spot!

For those that have tried both, how much more forgiving are the SC than MB?

I have a 5-PW set of MB but could use more forgiveness in the longer irons.

Had sc in my bag for about 5 rounds, practised abit too but couldnt get myself into playing them. Sorta very mundane set, not too excited with the feel but it doesnt feel bad, not very long but up in there, not bad looking but the topline could be thinner and the blade can be slightly longer to look great.

Sold them and got a set of 0311T, better off center misses, longer, feels way softer and thinner topline.

I do not notice a single difference in forgiveness between them. I have over 100 rounds with my set now.

Had my set of sc8-pw, 5 flihi mmc, 6-7 MMc.  Very happy overall.  Always been grain flow forged feel that I love and this coming from ap2 player for years.  I think theyre coming out w new mp line soon and of course titleist will be realsing 720s I guess in fall. If your looking to
Step in now Id hold off a little until March/April and see whats coming out w mizzy.  Exciting times indeed.

Zero difference in my opinion. The vcg's are almost identical if I recall.

Ap2 looks better at address but lofts are weaker by 2deg. Ap2 is more like a muscle back blade

Got mine last May and have loved them ever since. I am also a sweeper and after hitting Ping i210s fat for a few months I made the switch after getting a great deal and haven't looked back. So easy to get through the turf for a sweeper and feel great. I hit them further than AP2s, and I would say mis hits are punished the same. I would like to try the 919s but they don't come in left handed!
