hard ( at least for me) to NOT hit them straight... each and every iron shot with the 33's is pure, soft and dead freakin straight.. BEST BLADE EVER!!

Let's hear it...
I've been playing the MP-33 for 3 yrs. Wife bought me Calloway fusion Irons. I tried the Fusions to be polite, I appreciate the thought but, I like my MP-33's much more.
For me, the MP-33, is a$100 saddle on a $10 horse, they are great.

Simply put the MP33 is the yardstick for all manufacturers who produce a blade

You can hit anything with these- pull hook, hook, draw, straight, fade, slice, push slice, and the straight pull and straight push. Whatever swing you put on the ball- you get the results of that swing. So you definately get out what you put in.
Now that seems to conflict with the forgiving statement . . . slight misses that still go where you intended but do not lose that much distance.
Feel is never jarring- even thin hits on cold mornings. And solid contact really feels like you are compressing/smashing the ball in a buttery soft sort of way.
Bad swings equal bad results regardless- these don't MASK anything in your swing. I'm measuring forgiveness on the slight miss scale/distance loss.
I miss them.

I wanted the MP-32's but I came across these, demo'ed them and never looked back. I am very willing to buy another set just to have them plus they are so so pretty!
If I never own another set of clubs again, I won't be upset.
Best clubs you can put in your bag hands down!!!
I will always wonder about the 32's and the 60's but I won't switch.
The change in my game compared to my old clubs is, well, I really have no words to give a clear perception of what fitted clubs can provide to your confidence!!

No, not correct !
Signature product means that Mizuno has phased them out, but because of the greatness of this particular iron (and also Mp-30) they will continue to sell them - but only through special orders.
As long as the tour players still use the Mp-33, it will continue as a signature product in the Mizuno line of irons.
I predict the great Mx-23 also will be a signature product when the succesor to this iron will be released some time next year.

I doubt if Mizuno will bestow the signature product description to any old iron model (this almost seems abusive as Mizuno just don't make any old irons), whether its coming to the end of its main production phase or passing on to custom order status.

Only way to describe these irons, the higher ball flight has taken the ‘Miss World’ of best irons ever made…well for me anyway.
As an engineer; the mild steel forging from the single billet creates the grain in the ‘Grain flow forging’ from one piece of steel joined together at the molecular level.
I have read the Muira philosophy of forging, and it looks as they weld a separate piece to the head after forging to create the hosal. This will not join the molecular bonds between the hosal & the head…. Impossible, not even a cold weld joint if they where lapped to engineers slip gauge surface finish standard.
If the greater forces of a forged piston in a performance engine could be welded in two parts for strength they would have done it. Same for a jet engine turbine blade would also be true.
For me the Mizuno way is academically sound, the ‘bling’ appearance & design of the MP-33 is cosmetically perfect & the consistently repeatable feel is second to none.
The Mp-32 & 60 extends the ‘Nothing feels like a Mizuno’ philosophy but how can the MP-33 sorry Mp-9 +14 be improved?
If nothing better comes out of the forge since they where launched in 2001, I will buy another set to last me before I die.

Used blades for the first time after playing for almost a year for now , and tasted the BUTTER with a 2 iron off to 230 plus . My first blade shot ever.
Messed with the other clubs 2-PW on the driving range today .
1. Accuracy in direction and distance .
2. Feedback after each shot .
3. Direction control.
G5 PINGs alway created a sort of confusion in these areas.
I am sold !!
G5 pings out of my bag off to ebay and MP 33's are in .
BTW, you don't have to be a low handicapper or scrtachgolfer to hit these.

Yesterday played first time with them and shot my hcp (6) Doha Qatar (loooong).
Great clubs, I was afraid of 3,4 or 5 iron and taught I will use my MP60 long irons.... no need, I was hitting 3i dead straight all day, I just need to get used to new shaft to get distance spot on.
Feel is amazing, several balls I hit I just started laughing cause I knew ball was going straight without need to look and feedback as well as sound are amazing.
For a blade they are fairly forgiving, very little difference in forgiveness from MP60. That is mainly because my problem is not hitting middle of club but occasionally coming over the top.
Top club, you have to try it...
70's Cobra blade,

Look great and feel even better. These are long despite the slightly weaker lofts. Relatively forgiving, very workable. The sweet spot is truly sweet, and you can tell a slight mishit without a horrible harsh feel.
I have them with 38" 5 iron, between 1 and 2* upright. X100s tipped 1/4 in.
Best set i have ever hit, and i have hit lots.
Prior to these i played:
Looking for a matching 2 iron if anyone has one they want to sell or trade.

32 dont have the same feel as 33 on a pure hit.
33's have a little high flight,but soft landing.I need to try DGs 100 shaft.

Edit on 10/2/07: I have in fact found another set that I like better (Tommy Armour Silver Scot MB with flighted 6.0 Rilfes ). However this doesn't take anything away from the fact that the MP-33 are still fantastic clubs.
