Mizuno MP-15 Irons Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
Like the MP-4, the MP-15 are grain flow forged with 1025E pure select mild carbon steel to deliver that sensational feel Mizuno is famous for. The MP-15 is what Mizuno calls a Ti Muscle head for increased forgiveness and a very solid feel. They do this by replacing 38 grams of steel with 10 grams of multiple materials, including Titanium, which will still maintain the solid feel while freeing up discretionary weight for increased MOI.
Who's It For?
Players irons are for touring and club pros, skilled amateurs and traditionalists. While they offer the greatest feel and maneuverability, with a smaller sweet spot than game improvement irons they are also the toughest to hit consistently.
The increased forgiveness from the Ti Muscle head was clearly effective in my testing as my mishits felt greatly improved, along with the ball flight and some added distance. The muscular back side was not present at address, so you still have that classic, clean look of a traditional MB head. The ball flight was tight and slightly high with the PX 5.5 shaft. The offset was minimal, but not the least in the business. An excellent choice for those that feel that the MP-4 is just too demanding for their game, but want that classic Mizuno feel with some forgiveness to the head.
