Bagging a set up MP-32s, and am looking for something a little easier to hit in my 3, 4, and 5 iron.  Any thoughts as to which model would be a good fit?  :miz:

Mizuno MP Fli Hi are still forged but are basically a Massive Wide sole version of their MP long irons, as far as i know they only offered 2-4 iron for individual sale. This year they are replacing the Fli-Hi with the MP-H4 line which has Wide Sole long irons into Classic shorter irons, i know in the UK they are selling the MP-H4's as long irons individually but i don't know about us in the states

Had a Fli Hi 2 iron and it was more than what I was looking for.  Was thinking maybe something along the mx23 lines.  Would prefer to go used/cheap.

AAlong those lines than anything Mizuno : MX 23, 25 or 300. Something closer in looks would be MP 60, 57, 52 , 53 , just depends on how much more forgiveness you are looking for. I am assuming that is the reason you want to replace the long irons.

the 52 or 53 will give you all the help you need if you are using the 32's for the rest of the set. They won't won't look massively dissimilar at address either.

I occasionally swap out my 3-5 irons in my mizzy mp32's (I feel guilty doing so...) with the long irons in a set of cally x-22 tours. No offset, short blade length...they setup similar for me, and give me that little extra I need on days I'm not "on". Another option to consider on top of some good ones above.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for, just not very familiar with all of the different Mizuno models, so am looking for some help from the experts, thanks.

After some looking, the 60 and 57 look promising.  How do they compare to the MX 23?  Unfortunately, there is nowhere around here that I could go hit them myself to compare.

I have an MP-52 5 iron, if you'd like to try it.  Great shape.  I had the 5-6 MP-52s blended in with my MP-60s, but have been hitting the MP-60s well, so it's just laying around.  PM me if you're interested.

I have 4-5 MP 60, 6-PW MP 32. Seems like it was a common setup a few years ago. Mine have matching serial numbers so I think they were ordered that way(bought on BST).

60s are like perimeter weighted 32s, so they will match the most looks-wise. there are plenty of arguments over whether the 60s are really that much easier to hit or not, so you should try to demo some if possible.

MX20/23/25 will in all honesty be easier to hit (and they're supposed to be), but they definitely won't look the same. the heads will be slightly bigger, the soles slightly wider, and a little more offset. if looks don't bother you and you're going for forgiveness, this would be the way to go.

note all the models i listed are older more affordable models, i didn't list any newer offerings.

Not really that worried about looks, just want something Mizuno really, and cheap since I'm going to have to go the guess and check route.  Haven't actually hit the 32 long  irons yet, so might just stick with those depending, but there's snow on the ground and I'm bored...

Thanks for the suggestions.

Bummer about the snow, we are not there yet but it is getting close, some courses have closed already. I know that bored feeling all too well by February I am buying used stuff off ebay just to get some kind of golf fix.

You're doing a lot better if you make it all the way until February!
