Currently playing MP59s.
Loving the looks of the 64. Havent seen one in the flesh yet.

What are the main differences in these irons. is the 64 a smaller head? Thinner topline, less offset? less forgiveness?

Pretty much exactly what driverwedge3putt said. I used to have MP58s and when I hit the MP64s, the 64s definitely felt better and softer to me personally.

I would think the differences are minor, and the similarities vast. That's been my experience with the MP line. Subtle differences in bounce and top line, but essentially, they all seem to feel the same. Ball flight and such is more about the shaft and the swing of the user, all things being equal..:)

The MP 64 feel more meaty, have a much better feel and most important a better sole grind.

The ball flight is´nt lower in the long irons.

Less forgiving, lower ballflight, different feel and different headshape.....

I would either take 59 or 69

64 isn't really more forgiving than 69 and I like the 69 better in turf interaction, looks, feel,

The 64 is fugly and I disagree with turf interaction between 59 and 64......I prefer 59

Yes I know Luke Donald disagrees.... Lol, but I am not him nor do I play pristine fairways as he does

64S are outstanding in every respect.

I've been hitting the 59's for three months now - prior to which I was hitting 32's.  I tried the 63's (very similar to the 64's) but found them to have a smaller sweet spot.  The 59's feel more beefy to me in comparison as well.  Plus didn't like the look/size compared to the 59's.  I suspect there isn't much difference in the 63 vs 64, and that you're better off keeping the 59's.....

First thing you will notice is the feel. 64's go back to that traditional Mizuno buttery soft feel (think mp 62's). A well struck shot feels like you went straight through the ball, much better feeling than the 59's imho. I went from 59's to 63's to 64's. Feel was about the same with the 63's and 59's but the 64's feel much better.

Forgiveness vs the 59's shouldn't be all that different. Both play like blades and are best suited to better ball strikers.

Big difference is feel. 59's feel good, 64's feel fantastic. 64's SLIGHTLY lower ballflight. Forgiveness? These are two very blade-like irons; Hit the 64 off the toe, it loses 14 yards, hit the 59 off the toe, it loses 10 yards. Does it matter? Both excellent irons. I've posted before, I own the 69's, and have hit the 53,59, and 64 extensively.  Forgiveness differences in any of the short irons are minute at best, and in the longer irons it becomes a little more noticeable. Ball flight increases ever so slightly from 69 to 64 to 59 to 53, and even then, that can be altered via shaft change. I feel if you can hit one of these irons consistently, you can hit them all! It comes down to what you want to look at, and what you are comfortable with.  I play an h4 4 iron, and 69's 5-pw.  When I was being fitted, I was considering something like 4 iron in the 53, 5-7 in the 59, and 8-pw in the 69.  But after hitting 69 6 iron and 53 6 iron side by side, I thought "Why?" The difference was that small! Just make 'em all 69's for consistent set! But grabbed the h4 4 iron when it came out, really launches better than the blade 4 iron.

Thanks for this input. I guess it depends on how often you hit it on the toe (or heel). But to me this is a significant difference. Even as a 4 handicap, I hit enough shots not on the sweet spot. The difference might mean the fringe or in a bunker. We individually have to decide whether forgiveness or workability is more important.
