After having owned the following this year: :busted_cop: :crazy2:

MP69
MP59
MP59/69
RAZR Forged
RAZR MB
AP2 twice
AMP Forged
CMB twice
Pro Combos
Ansers
I20 twice
S56
Nike blades

These are the best I've played. Very forgiving for a forged cb and the best feeling Mizzy in a long time. They are also very long. I shot one of my best rounds with these today even with my swing off. These are long term keepers :golfer: , no more ho'ing irons for me.

How would you compare the 64's to the S56 and CMB's? What shafts are you using in the 64's?

Turf interaction is great. I'm a digger and played on a wet course today with no issues. The mp64 just feel great and are very accurate. Actually I could play the mp59 or cmb happily, I just think the mp64 feel better.

LOL this is funny, how can you actually get used to something with how fast you have tossed them? I would take your word on golf clubs with a grain of salt by the looks of it you love everything for a week or there about's.

I feel the mp64 are longer and better feeling than the s56. As for the cmb, very similar, maybe half a club shorter. I had the ctaper in cmb and s300 in my mp64. I seem more accurate with the 64, and I have better control with short pitches, but I loved the cmb and would play them with no issues. The long irons in cmb go higher.

64s are bestbI have owned.  I am a sweeper usually but do take a small divot at times   Great turf interaction, distance, fell and forgiveness. Played my sons I20 this morning and just could not hit them to safe my life. I know they are supposed to be more forgiving but not in my hands

Ok seriously junkie? I had them for a few weeks and sold em.  I know I was having a bad few weeks but found them pretty demanding.
I for one actually respect your opinion on clubs considering you have owned them all - all in good fun.

Do you play the long irons?  Did you try the H4 3 or 4 iron yet??

I'm happy to hear (read actually), you found something you really like! After a while ho'ing can become a pain in the butt. Since you're in Phoenix, you'll be able to enjoy them throughout the winter too. :-)

Thongs always set women apart.

As for the mp64, the feel and distance control are superb.

I will support GJ's conclusion on these irons.  Purest Mizuno feel in years - haven't felt this since the MP-60's.  I've now owned them with KBS and Dynamic Gold.  I think they feel even better with the DG_S300 shafts!

WOW is right............talking about the stable of primo irons left in the dust, dude you are big league.

Glad you love the MP 64, heard a lot of great things about them. I hope they do stay in your bag but if not they are in some pretty fine company when it comes to rejects. How long have you had them and how many rounds played with them so far? Keep us updated and thanks for the info on their characteristics.

That's great but how can you tell if one's more accurate than another if you've played that many irons in that period of time? I think it takes at least weeks and probably months to be able to dial in yardages and determine if an iron is accurate and consistent. And you say this on a day when your swing wasn't great? No offense, but I'd bet you'll have something else in the bag by Christmas.

One week and 3 rounds . A few of my sets only lasted one range session, so these are way ahead.

The MP-64 have a level of Mizuno feel that is over and above.
