Mizuno MP-69 Irons make me figure out that my old clubs told me nothing and these reveal everything. I really feel I can grow into them and I've already become a more solid ball striker as a result of the immediate feedback. When struck pure, they just feel amazing. Now if I could just get my putting up to cheap golf center, I'll sneak into single digits in no time.
When I finally got a sunny day with temps in the low 40s, I hit the range. I beat about 80+ of those hard-as-rocks off-season range balls with the 6-iron from all five sets. By comparison, the discount MP-69 Irons felt like I was hitting ProV1x balls off turf in mid-season temps. And it was easily 5-8 yards longer than all the others. At first, when the MP-69s first came out, I loved the 4-D concept because they gave me the trajectory of my low-muscle 690s. But I was iffy about the offset.
Minimal as is might be, I donít like more than 2mm in the mid and long irons, which is why I tended to favor my 681s or ZOs. But when the weather turns cool, the thin misses of my picker/slider swing would be too punishing. But after playing over 20 rounds with the discount Mizuno MP-58 Irons, the offset isnít an issue in the least bit as the face is easy to manipulate regardless of which way Iím working the ball.
The feel is what is to be expected from Mizuno as cheapest MP-59 Irons , soft and buttery, to me they very comparable to TN-87s, which to me is the all time best feeling iron. Donít get me wrong, all Mizuno irons I have had were soft and buttery when struck but to me I feel like the 69s are the best they have made in years. Mizuno did a great job building the 69s. All the irons have a consistent swingweight of D3. All I can say is the MP-69s have impeccable feel. I have played many irons over the years and to me these are the best feeling blades since the TN-87s.
