Mizuno far from dying 
Maybe Mizuno need a champion to draw some more attention

Many LPGA tour pros are using Mizuno besides Luke Donald. I am also using Mizuno irons. Wink

Maybe not enough tour players promoting the brand while on tour.

Not dying but need better marketing on feel. Don't fall into the distance bandwagon.

The grain flow thing is quite cool but maybe experiment with diff materials in the future.

i find feel may not be just forging technique, club design plays a part as well. Tried Titleist MB and CB, if not wrong both are forged but feel is different. I guess is the CG.

i think it's their harmonic impact technology that provides the different sound and feel.

I feel that Mizuno bladed irons have lotsa solid punch upon impact ... I don't have this kinda feel when I used TM, Nike or Ping irons. Not sure about the current Callaway irons though. When I was a beginner, I started to use Callaway X14 irons. Forgiving but very hollow feel ... Now I don't feel shiok using all these irons ... I need the "orgasmic feel" ... So to speak. Very Happy

If you visit the international forums, Mizuno has as strong a following as any other brand outside of Singapore.

In Singapore, however, I feel they are somewhat handicapped by lack of marketing, limited offerings, and their outdated distribution channel. 

I love and play their irons, but can't help but feel Mizuno customers are shortchanged here in Singapore.

Was on the Mp69 for quite a while but after trying the Endo S20C forging of the Legacy Black irons, the Mizzies just ain't as soft or orgasmic anymore.......

Good irons nonetheless....had many good memories with that set...

Shortchanged in what sense??

Generally, US and UK buyers enjoy much wider options, for example in terms of shafts and grips (no additional upcharge) and wedge loft/lies. Either on Mizuno website, online resellers, even eBay sellers that help you order direct from Mizuno factory.

Versus the limitations for buyers here in SG: Only NSPro and Project X iron shafts available from the official distributor. They don't bring in all wedge lofts/lies either. Anything other than stock option requires a hefty upcharge (if they will even facilitate) or you have to source yourself. 

Even before the customisations, whether MSRP or street price, SG not as competitive. May all be part of their business strategy, and truth be told Mizuno is not the only brand with these local constraints, but as a fan and customer I do wish their product offering was more "accessible" in that sense.

Just my 2 cents worth.
