PostSubject: MIzuno MP60.   Wed Jun 19, 2013 10:10 am

Coming 25jul will be my 2 years anniversary in golf.

I started with Nike sling shot and got the MP60 after 7 months. Got 2 season kaki using the mp57 and 58 and I was told its a cavity back cause the back got cavity mah.

, at the range few weeks ago, one of them take his 57 and my 60 side by side and say, erh your mp60 like more dif to hit leh. I was like huh, wtf that time u tell me easy now become difficult. No wonder I was struggling with it. When I start google on it, some say forgiving some say not.
Because i am new, I have never blame the club for my bad shot all these time, but will a more forgiving club help?

Btw I also don't know wat is forgiving.
- Does it mean if a slight top on the 60 will have a more devastating effect than example, mp53? A mishit will be straighter?....etc.

Btw hor, personally I find the mp60 Jin Swee.

Will an mp53 be a better choice for me?

Dear bros, Please shed some light.

Mate
If I'm you, just 2 years into the game and probably a high HCP player, I will steer clear of the MP series irons
Forgiveness is relative, but generally, MP series irons are for good ball strikers who find the centre of the club face frequently.
The JPX series are just so much more forgiving if you talk about Mizuno line of irons. Hit anywhere also can fly.

But different players have different needs. I want to put a decent score 
Some like players clubs in their bag and score doesn't matter

You are absolutely correct that the MP is for low handicapper! After googling, I know now.@&$#%.

I am already 46, I want to lower my score before demantia set in.

All of my equipment except the wedges and hybrid are hand me down by the very same people that bring me into this game so i just use lor. i still got 7 boxes of brand new srixon softfeel and a few others from these guys.

MP series, particular the 6series e.g 60-69 are more for low hcp player, or player whom strike the iron well like an iron man. This weapon can shape your intentional shot, thus you want to ask if you need these precise weapon.

For a touch more forgiving, the MP53-59 will be ideal, or the JPX 825 forged, whom are more forgiving yet had the similar forge feel. 

To each his own, some guys game for forgiving set so to make it fun to play golf, while others game for player irons to keep improving himself and always on focus, knowing that a bad shot is real punishing.

For me no need to shape shot, go straight can Liao. Yes, was advise to get 825 too but I like the look of 53 better and cheaper Mah. As for feel, so far only try range kaki's 57, 58, honma??, ping i20, feel.......hmmmm i20 lighter lor.

One thing I don't understand, isn't cavity back easier? The mp60 does have a cavity and infact bigger than mp53?

mp60 imho is more like a MB not cavity, cavity usually has a thicker solo and a pocket like u see on irons like JPX825 or mx25. i'm also learning so if anything wrong plz correct me here.. cheers all..Smile

not many people can practice and "grow" into the MP..unless you practice very often and hard in the first 2 years.

say for example, to play often below 100, its not about how good your good shots are, but more of how bad your bad shots punish you. Generally, forged irons have a much smaller and higher sweet spot, compare to GI irons. Which means for you to strike it well, you have to take a proper divot in your swing. Which in turns mean your ball striking skills have to be of certain level. Of course the ball will still fly even you dont take a divot, just not optimum distance. Coupled with the offset, alot of bad things can happen when that day happens to be a poor striking day...

A friend of mine recently asked for my opinion whether to change to 825 or 825 Pro. I researched a bit and found that on golfdigest site, they were also comparing the 2. The cons of the 825 Pro, as the editor stated was: Mizuno says its for 6-18 handicapper. Does an 18 handicapper need a club with the word "Pro" on it?" And MP series is generally for even lower handicap range.

Of course forged gives you the ability to do many wonderful things. But so many people are just ill-adviced by kakis or have a ego way bigger than their golf swing. 
Like all the other bros says, different people uses different clubs for different reasons.
End of the day,whatever makes you happy on the course, just use that! 
And yes, 825 is a real good option.

All that said, I'm not saying you shouldnt be playing that. Just my 2 cents and experience im sharing. Just dont burn my house ya...hhaaa..


happy golfing everyone. Smile

I really did not try enough other club to tell or understand the different. I am still unclear the forgiving part. If I have a bad shot, I'll blame my swing. The question is will the result be different on a "easier" iron? 

You give your valuable 2 cts mate, I really appreciate it. Too much haze.......no house burning ok:D:D
