Having tested the MP-18 SC I was really looking forward to getting my hands on the MP-18 blades, just the look of it sends goose bumps down my spine and memories of my TP-11s come flooding back, but unlike today forgiveness in a blade was unheard of and a miss hit shot would jar your whole being!
Crafted from 1025 E Pure Select mild carbon steel billets Mizuno have evolved the Grain Flow forging process so they are able to capture more High Density (HD) grains thus in turn enhancing the feel and strike at impact.
The set has a gradual progression with the short irons having a smaller blade than the higher irons, which incorporates an ultra thin cambered top line and low heel profile.
Mass has been moved low in the club and out to the toe and heel to give the MP-18 blade its forgiveness while keeping those classic flowing lines and curves.
Like the rest of the MP-18 family you can mix and match to build a set that is perfect for you with the knowledge that they will all flow together
As most of you know I grew up playing with the TP-9s and 11s, they were classic blades, crisp and sharp with flowing lines and I still have my TP11s to this day. What those irons didnít give you was the forgiveness of todays Mizuno.
With the MP-18 you are given all the classic shaping you could desire, they look fantastic at address the way the club sits behind the ball the thin top line, the skill and attention to detail that the master craftsman have used over the years, but like a classic car under the hood is all the forgiveness to give you that crisp clean strike, that pure sound at impact.
I loved every minute of hitting these, that feel as the ball compresses on the face, the sound as it fizzes off the blade, you certainly need to put these on your testing list and I would recommend Mizunoís DNA fitting so you can get the perfect blend of set to suit your game.
