The new MP-18 line of irons from Mizuno will surely excite any golfer that still enjoys the classic look, feel and playability that Mizuno is known for. It’s been a few years since Mizuno last introduced an MP model iron but the long-anticipated return is finally over.
The full line of MP-18 irons comes with added benefits and new technology in the form of four different models:
• MP-18 (muscle-back)
• MP-18 SC (split cavity)
• MP-18 MMC (multi-material construction)
• MP-18 MMC FLI-HI
Each model is built for set-mixing, meaning that the various models in the MP-18 line can be seamlessly blended to provide every player with the exact performance that they need to take their game to the next level. For this model, Mizuno improved their well-known Grain Flow Forging (HD) process to create a higher density material to give players more feel and performance than ever before. First up in this breathtaking line of irons is the clean and simple muscle-back version of the MP-18.
MP-18: Designed as a throwback to the muscle-backs of Mizuno’s past is the MP-18. Featuring a shorter blade length, cambered top line and steeper progression into sharp, compact wedges, the MP-18 is designed for the ultimate soft, solid and consistent feel that every player desires. The master club makers at Mizuno are perfecting the club making process in the form of an elegant, high-performance, classic looking iron.
MP-18 SC: The Mizuno MP-18 SC or Split Cavity is what better players ask for out of a modern, compact cavity set. Built in partnership with Mizuno Tour staff, the MP-18 SC is a slightly wider, more playable cavity-back with a slightly wider cambered sole, making it more playable than the muscle-back. The thin tapered top line, short head length and smaller wedges easily classify this iron as “tour-ready.” Not to mention, it can easily blend into a combo set.
MP-18 MMC: To keep up with the demands of the modern player, Mizuno’s R&D team and legendary forging house took what they learned from a three-year project to develop a Multi Material Construction. The highly stable, forgiving multi-metal construction satisfies the needs of a large range of players. Through the strategic use of lightweight titanium and heavier tungsten parts sealed within its 1025E mild carbon steel head MP-18 MMC provides workability, control, piercing ball flight, and forgiveness while maintaining a similar ‘tour-ready’ profile and size to the MP-18 SC.
MMC FLI-HI: The finishing touch to an MP-18 set is the MMC FLI-HI. The hollow body, long iron replacement provides an added element of speed, power, and launch. The sleek new profile now envelopes a maraging steel face, tungsten toe weight and internal pocket for enhanced ball speed and ease of use without the added bulk or off-set of typical game improvement long irons.
