I don't believe your review. Let me try the clubs. I'll put them in my bag for about 6 months and will let you know if I agree Razz

Seriously, v nice, Rex! Smile

Thanks TS & JT

This new MP Fli-Hi model is really worlds apart from the previous model. There is noticeably less bulge all round when looking down at the clubhead at address than the previous model. Its almost iron-like now but with added forgiveness.

At USD$129.99, you can't beat it for a great deal too.

OK Birdman, here's the FR on the MP58s as requested.

I oni have the 4 & 5i for the MP58s in the bag rite now and I dun really hit it as much as I wud like. Their impact somehow just feels that little bit different from the 68s. I wud say its more clicky at impact and not as soft as the blades. I wud expect that cos the rear insert is metal and not some polymer or rubber damping device. Its also to be expected from a CB compared to an MB.

That said, because its a cavity back, the trajectory of my 5i is almost the same height as my 6i. I suspect the titanium insert and weight near the sole has something to do with that.

Comparing the 58s with the Titleist 710 AP2s (not the 710 CBs although I've hit them quite abit on the trackman too but comparison will be done on irons with rear inserts)
and trying to be as unbiased as I can, I will have to say that the AP2s will 'feel' softer not because of the forging or type of carbon steel but because of the elastomer insert at the back of the club.

The sole of the AP2 is also noticeably thicker too. Likewise for the topline. The 58s' sole width and offset hardly differs by much from the 68s making the combo set look really uniform at address or when viewed from the sole. There is also a little more bounce and camber on the Mizzy's sole and its complemented by a blunted leading edge so it really favours those who tend to dig on their iron shots.

Conclusion: The 58s looks really good at address with its noticeably less offset and thinner topline and sole than the AP2s and this will be important for players who are finicky and prefer to look down at an iron with those aspects. However I will have to say the AP2s will be a tad more forgiving and might have a fraction bigger sweetspot than the Mizunos. That rear insert really takes away quite abit of vibes on off centre hits.

Great stuff as usual from you Rex. Thanks much!

Wasn't sure of the 58's look when I first saw it, it's kinda grown on me though. Haven't yet got my hands on them for a trial yet. Sorely tempted but it all depends on how it hits for me in the end.

The 710 AP2s did feel softer to me too, as compared to the MP 57's. Yes, the elastomer insert really does its job, versus just a pure forging. And I think that will be increasingly the case from here on in with insert irons giving a softer feel than just metal forgings.

i think the mp58 and mp68 combo is a little weird. personally i use mx300 for my 3 and 4 and mp58 for the rest. you should give it a try. the 3 and 4 are really easy to hit. i want to buy the mp68 for 5 to PW but i am not man enough for the clubs yet Sad
hopefully soon i will be able to use the mp68 with confidence and ease...

I dunno what makes it so 'weird'.

Good luck with your choices.

@Jon_TK: sorry I miss your post. The satinised look can be DIY-ed provided you have the right tools.

You can use elbow grease with a few pieces of fine paper or a sanding sponge. That probably takes quite a while.

A sanding tool / drill can do the trick. You just need the skill to do it with the right amount and in the same direction so it doesn't look like raw scratches haha.
