When it comes to forged irons, Mizuno is really in a league of its own. I have been playing its irons since I was a kid and still have my TP-11s. I even still carry the 2-iron from that set – the 1-iron sits in the corner staring menacingly at me … When you pull the wrapper from a Mizuno blade you can’t help but be struck by its shear beauty and craftsmanship. Each year Mizuno manages to improve on perfection and the boys from Japan have done it again with this milled step muscle design, cavity-backed blade.

I loved the look, feel and sound at impact of the MP-54 – the blade had everything I expected and more. The cavity back and beveled sole design offer a lot of forgiveness, and the mild carbon steel that the blade is forged from gives you great feedback – you just can’t beat that meaty sound at impact.


One of the first things you will probably notice is the milled pocket cavity behind the sweet spot – this is where Mizuno has designed forgiveness into its blade, helping stability on off-centre strikes. The heavily bevelled sole also helps with face-to-ball contact, minimising turf interaction at impact.

The incredible feel that the blade offers comes from its grain flow forged 1025E mild carbon steel and step design. And the new modified blended hosel design helps create the illusion that the club is less offset, giving those who like to move the ball in a left-to-right ball flight into the green better sight lines at address.


If you’re a mid-to low-handicap golfer looking for a forged blade with added forgiveness, but which still retains that great feel and solid strike – plus workability and stunning craftsmanship – then you need to put the Mizuno MP-54s on your testing list. Take it from someone who has been playing blades for nearly forty years, you will be glad you did.

Go and have some fun.
