Looking for some "played" insight for these Mizuno irons. Yes I've read the Mizuno site for each iron, but looking for some real feedback on the differences in each iron. I'm probably looking for the most forgiving in 4,5,6 iron without giving up the "players cavity" look/feel. Reviews on each iron is OK, but more interested in what makes each different. I'm a 6 hdcp. and have always loved to play some sort of combo with a blade in the 8-PW, but can't be comfortable with a full set of MP68 or MP69's. Any insight from those who have played the MP53/63/64's is appreciated.

The 53's as easily the most forgiving of the ones you have listed.They have pretty much a full cavity in the 4,5,6 irons. They will also provide the highest ball flight all things being equal. The 63 and 64's have less perimeter weighting and thus a little less forgiving. A good ball striker is not going to have a problem with any of these irons though. The feel of the 53 and 64 is awesome. The 63 is still good, just feels a little different to me for whatever reason. All of this is subjective to the person using the clubs of course.

I would choose the 53's for my own game (currently play 52's) as I found the long irons much easier to hit than the long irons of the 63 and 64.

I play the 63. I played the 60 before that. And I played Hogan apex blades before that. The 63 like the 60 has a very nice balance between feel and forgiveness. Honestly though, I haven't hit any modern blade that is all that horrible anyway. I think too much is made about blades being so unforgiving. It's not like they were 20 years ago.  The ball flight is nice. It's what you expect from a blade. Good swings equal boring trajectories that land soft.

I play 53/63 in a split set, and demoed the 64 against the 63 today.

My only regret is not getting my 5 and 6 irons in the 63. It has a much "crunchier" impact than the 64. I don't mean that it's firmer, but the ball feels like it's smushed against the face better.

My miss is usually thin, and all of these irons will keep the ball on line with just a minimal distance loss. Toe hits, not so much.

Ball flight is only noticeable higher in the MP-53.

Thanks for the responses. I was able to spend some time last night with the MIzuno fit cart and hit all the models I mentioned and more. People are right--the MP64 has a great feel and certainly lives up to the MP status in all areas. Again, my concern is for the 4,5,6 iron forgiveness which always ends up 'playing with my mind" on confidence. I did hit the H4 which was not quite as bad size wise as I thought---but yet a bit large for my taste. The H4 was also pretty "clicky" which I'm not a fan of !!  So, surprise of the night was the JPX825 Pro---one that I never paid any attention to. Size seems perfect to me, kind of right in the middle of H4 and MP64. The feel was very good also and distance (not really a big factor) was slightly longer than both the H4 and MP64--and yes it was 1* stronger loft !  So, pretty sure the combo will be: 4-6 JPX825 Pro, 7-PW MP64........

That sounds like a good combo to me. I played MPH 53/63 combo for the last two years and I just upgraded to all mp64's. Went from a 9 handicap down to a 4, so I felt much more comfortable with the entire set of 64's now. They are much more buttery than my 63's were.
