Mizuno MP-H5 Irons
MP-H5 Iron Set
The Mizuno MP-H5 iron set offers the most forgiveness and playability Mizuno has ever introduced to the better player's market. The set blends hybrid long irons to half-cavity short irons. All the irons are made with Mizuno's patented Grain Flow Forging process for a soft, solid, consistent feel. The MP-H5 was designed to deliver a higher, controllable ball flight and steeper, soft landings to attack these challenging pin positions.
The hollow Construction delivers a deeper Center of Gravity (COG) throughout the set for a high launch with controllable spin. The MP-H5 achieves this “launch forgiveness” while maintaining a thin top line and minimal offset, giving the better player total shot-making control.
- 1-6 Irons: Full hollow design with high COR maraging steel face for easy launch and long, consistent distance.
- 7-PW: Half hollow 1025E Grain Flow Forged design for easy launch and soft, solid, consistent feel.

“The MP-H5 will suit players who have grown up on traditional irons, but don’t want to be left behind on distance and technology. Launch Forgiveness is one of the hottest trends on the professional tours, and now you can add it to your bag as well.”
-Chuck Couch, VP of Product Management
Mizuno MP-H5 Irons Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The MP-H5 features an interesting cavity area that is half hollow on the mid and short irons (7-PW), and a fully hollow cavity on long irons (1-6). The Half Hollow heads feature a grain flow forged 1025E face, neck and body, and offers you a players cavity size and shape. The fully hollow heads feature a thin and high COR 1770 maraging steel face and a low sweet spot with a deep CG for a controllable high launch and excellent forgiveness.
Who's It For?
These irons are a great choice for scratch golfers, to mid-handicappers and improving golfers who want to increase their shot making abilities, receive increased feel from shot to shot, and want to control distances better than they would be able to with the even more forgiving game improvement heads.
The MP-H5 were a very interesting iron for me. I hear so much about Mizuno irons, yet I have never owned a set. This set was more to my liking than the other two Mizuno heads I reviewed earlier. I found the feel to be even better, and the launch and ball flight fit my eye as well. This head still looked like a blade to me, with a very rounded toe meeting a sharp edge leading into a nice sized top line. The offset looked minimal on this somewhat compact head. So far, my favorite iron offering from Mizuno.
