Spotted: Mizuno’s new 2015 MP irons and wedges

Published

on

Photos of Mizuno’s new line of MP forged irons and wedges have been unveiled to the public via Mizuno’s Facebook page for The Open Championship.

Mizuno didn’t reveal much about the new technology in its clubs, which look to be called the MP-15 (irons), MP-H5 (irons) and MP-T5 (wedges), so we’ll have to make our own assumptions for now.

Judging from the photos, the MP-H5 irons will most likely replace the company’s MP-H4 irons, while the MP-15 will likely replace the MP-59 irons.

It’s pretty clear the MP-T5 wedges will be available with two different finishes, a black and a chrome.

    Mizuno makes the best irons in golf, hands down.

    Wedges look more like satin and black, not chrome

    Yep they look like mp59’s.
    I’ll take my 64’s any day.

    I also much prefer the MPR range of wedges.

    Wait till 2016 I think.

      They hardly look like the 59’s, LOL.

    these are beautiful i dont understand the hate

    • jgpl001

      Jul 17, 2014 at 9:21 am

      I don’t think there is any hate, just some suprise and a little disappointment

      How could anyone hate any Mizzy iron? – just not possible

    • David Cox

      Aug 21, 2014 at 2:17 pm

      No hate has been expressed. We are all entranced by Mizuno wands. The MP 15’s have borrowed the diamond shape of the 64’s so presumably it is better. For me I’m stuck with the MP 68’s which are the prettiest blade ever made by anyone and I think the slight dish at the back renders it a bit more forgiving than the new MP 4 solid muscle back. Anyway I was looking for something along the lines of an MP64 but better looking; sorry to be shallow. Not finding it, I will stick to the MP 68’s. Who has a problem with blades? It’s all marketing hype about cavity backs I’m thinking. At what point does the club become unusable for mere mortals? Is the 8 considered usable? Yes. The 7, certainly. The 6 is easy. So it must be the very long ones which are so hard and not many carry the 3’s of any club anymore so where is the problem with blades. It is all hype.

    I expected much more out of Mizuno. Oh well.

    Those wedges are awesome… definitely replacing my MP-T11s with them when they wear out. As for the 15 and H5, they might look a little flashy from the back, but as far as I know, Mizuno hasn’t made a bad iron yet, so we’ll have to see.

    The MP15 looks like a 2105 version of the MP59 – what are they meant to replace, the MP64?

    That sole looks Ping G series wide – yikes!!!

    The wedges look very good though

    I will reserve judgement till I see them in the flesh, Mizuno haven’t made a bad iron yet….

    Overall a little disappointed, my 714 mb’s still very safe in the bag

    • John

      i think the soles look wide because those all appear to be 2 irons or something close to it.

    Jul 16, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    Hmmmmmmmmm. Dunno about the 15. Why do they keep going down this road?

    what the heck is “Hitogami”? I’m sure it is really special whatever it is, but I could’ve done without the word plastered on the back of the iron. I’ve got too many things in my game already that are difficult to explain. Maybe it is Japanese for “go far long time”.

    • Rob

      Jul 16, 2014 at 8:57 pm

      I actually laughed out loud at “go far long time.” Well played.

    • OMG

      Jul 16, 2014 at 9:41 pm

      HITOGAMI means a human being who became a God. Like a Saint.

        Saints are gods? Since when?

          Since the first I’m smarter than you guy unnecessarily corrected an Internet comment.
