Layers of Feel – 2019 Mizuno MP-20 irons

MP-20 • PURE MUSCLE BACK

The ultimate Mizuno muscle back – heavily influenced by the most revered blades of Mizuno’s past. Grain Flow Forged HD from a single billet of 1025E Pure Select Mild Carbon Steel – then layered with soft Copper plating beneath a protective Nickel Chrome for legendary feel and feedback.

“We kept asking ourselves – why did players still talk about the feel of the older Mizuno blades – TN87, MP14, MP29, TP9. Despite our Grain Flow Forging process tightening up and an evolving CAD process that predicts vibration patterns – we were still missing something. The one element left from the old classics was a layer of Copper. After blind testing our players at the Valspar it was more than nostalgia – our test pool universally preferred the prototype with copper plating.”

LAYERS OF FEEL: Grain Flow Forged HD in Hiroshima Japan, from 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel, then plated in soft copper and Nickel Chrome – the original layering from Mizuno’s great TN87 blade.

‘TOUR READY’ PROFILE: Honed by studying elements of Mizuno’s most played/retained tour iron models – by both contracted and non-contracted tour players. Usage amongst ‘free-agents’ on tour provided a new perspective.

VERTICALLY STABLE: A discreetly tapered top blade and cambered sole allow a fuller vertical spread of weight to forgive strikes high or low from the face – without distorting the traditional muscle back appearance.

REFINED TOPLINE: Mizuno’s thinnest topline of recent generations – a response to feedback from our tour players. The MP-20 #3 iron is reduced by 0.05mm and pitching wedge by 0.15mm (compared to MP-18).

MIXED SATIN/MIRROR FINISH: Combination of chrome finishing to eliminate areas of high glare in the playing position.

MP-20 MMC • ELITE PLAYERS CAVITY

The 2nd generation of Mizuno’s multi material concept – with a thinner topline and refined scoring irons. Based on the chassis, set flow and proportions of the MP-20 muscle back – engineered to be more playable through the use of Titanium muscle plate and Tungsten sole weight. Grain Flow Forged HD from a single billet of 1025E Pure Select Mild Carbon Steel – layered within soft Copper plating and protective Nickel Chrome for legendary feel and feedback.

“The new MMC is the smaller, sharper version of the original. For a player with a traditional eye, looking for a little stability from off center strikes, but comfortable with their distances and ball speed – this is the iron.”

STABILITY IN A TOUR PREFERRED PROFILE: Titanium muscle spreads weight for forgiveness from off center strikes while maintaining center portion thickness for muscle back type feel / feedback.

MULTI-MATERIAL CONSTRUCTION: Grain Flow 1025E mild carbon steel chassis and Ti muscle pad throughout, with 12g Tungsten toe weight (4-7 iron) for ease of launch in a compact playing profile.

IMPROVED SET FLOW TO WEDGES: Use of a 2nd Titanium muscle pad specific to the short irons, allows a narrower sole from 8 iron to pitching wedge.

DRAMATICALLY THINNER TOPLINE: As a response to requests from the tour. The MP-20 MMC #4 iron is reduced by 0.3mm and pitching wedge by 0.4mm (compared to MP-18 MMC). Less than 1mm thicker at address than the MP-20 muscle back.

MP-20 HMB • Hot Metal Blade

A full set of performance hybrid irons – in a sharp ‘tour ready’ profile. Inspired by the proliferation of long iron replacements on tour –the MP20 HMB extends the concept right through to wedge. Built upon the ball speed of Mizuno’s Chromoly Face and Neck, supported by a precision stainless steel body and Tungsten weighting. Layered with soft Copper plating and protective Nickel Chrome for legendary feel and feedback.

“A few years back it was a surprise to see truly elite tour players with more than one long iron replacement – but now that we’ve found their acceptance point on offset, size and proportions, there’s a new set who are open-minded to the #5 iron and beyond. We’re excited to see what happens when they experiment with the HMB.”

LAYERS OF FEEL: Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima Japan, plated in soft copper and Nickel Chrome – the original layering from Mizuno’s great TN87 blade.

MUSCLEBACK DNA: The proportions, topline and offset transition of a classic Mizuno players muscle back, with generous sole width hidden at address. For consistent ball players pursuing added ball speed – without sacrificing their shot making options.

MIXES WITH ANY MP-20 SET: Play as a full set, long iron replacement or a mixed set with MP-20 muscle backs or MP-20 MMC. Our recommended breakpoints for blended sets are between 4&5 iron or 7&8 iron.

COMPLEX, LOFT SPECIFIC CONSTRUCTION: Our multi-thickness Grain Flow Forged Chromoly (2-8 iron face and neck) is dialed in to be consistently hot across the clubface. Twin 12g Tungsten weights (2-7 iron) deliver stability and an easy launch. A softer 1025E Pure select mild carbon steel makes the short irons (9/pw) soft and responsive.
