Golf Equipment test and review: Mizuno MP18 SC Irons, Sole view



Mizuno have mixed the playability of their muscle back MP 18 design with the forgiveness of a cavity using the grain flow forged higher density (HD) process and this is the process that gives the Mizuno irons that great feel and wonderful sound at impact.

A compact cavity back with a slightly wider, cambered sole makes this a more playable iron than the muscle back for higher handicap players.

The MP-18 SC offers stability and workability, which is achieved in the forging process, pushing some of the weight out to the perimeters helps give the iron more forgiveness and stability while retaining that softness at impact.

The sole is a little wider than the muscle back again helping the higher handicapped player with turf interaction at impact. The irons progressively get more compact as you travel from the playing irons 3-6 to the scoring irons 7-PW, while still maintaining a nice thin topline and can be perfectly matched with the MP18 muscle back if you decide to have a split set.


Playing six links courses certainly gives you a chance to play every type of golf shot, from flying a ball high so you can use the wind to gain more distance to playing into the teeth of a four-club wind using a punch type shot to keep the ball low and penetrating.

The MP18 SCs coped with everything thrown at them and what I enjoyed most is the crisp but soft feel at impact, the ball just feels so good off the face you can’t help but smile as the sound of the ball fizzes away towards its target.

I was also impressed by the way the blade of the club got smaller as you went through the set. Visually looking down on the 3-6 irons you felt there was plenty of blade and forgiveness and the scoring irons look so solid and compact which I felt gave me an air of confidence in my ball striking from around 160-yards in.

If you like an iron that inspires you to play, rewards your great shots but also allows some forgiveness from your longer irons, all while giving you that perfect feel and sound at impact, then I would suggest you put the MP18 SCs to the test.
