Is there much difference in forgiveness, softness, offset and so on between Mx15, Mx20, Mx23,25 and thru Mx200. I've only played a Mx 200 6 iron and I'm looking for something simular because I'm a lefty and finding a set of Mx200 in decent shape is not working out. Thanks for any help Lynn.

I don't know about the 15, but the 20 was a bit more players than the 23, 25 not much different than the 23.

I play the MX-20's.  Bought them new in 2000 and still love them.  There is no other iron out there I I have found that can match the look and feel of the MX-20.  Thin top line, cavity back, very little ofset and, of course, that Mizuno forged feel.

The Scratch Golf EZ irons look similar but I have not seen one in person.

MX-15s are cast, so yes, there is a difference.

Is there much difference from the Mx20 to the Mx200 or is the Mx20 more of a players iron. Thank you all for your replies.

Mizuno made improvements from model to model, and made subtle other changes.  How much impact each of these changes might have had, is debatable.  I had a set of MX-23's, and now have a set of MX-200's.  Neither were/are my primary set, but I've played rounds with each.  They are very similar.

The MX-25's added hemi-cog I believe, and then the MX-200's added the Y-tune bar.  Both features designed to add forgiveness.  Beyond the marketing though, the MX-20, 23, 25 and 200 are all very similar, look similar, play similar, etc.   But sure, I guess if you held up the MX-20 against the MX-200, the MX-20 would look more players-like fwiw.

some people claim that from 20 to 25, they got progressively more forgiving, but less workable. i've hit all three and i tend to agree, although it's not like it's a dramatic difference. i think you'll be happy if you find any of these sets in good shape with the shafts that fit you the best. i would scratch the 15s off the list though.

I recently hit the mx 200 and mx 25 side by side playing around....Frankly they felt the same to me, and they basically looked the same also....both really nice GI clubs in my mind.

I have the 25's and think they are great, have that awesome Mizuno feel with the grain flow forge. If you can find anything by Mizuno with the forging I would go for it..

The MX-25s are rock solid. They're in my bag because I snapped my i15 6iron and I just sent it to ping. The only potential issue with the 25s is the grooves have not been deemed conforming yet.
