We tested the 17 degree stiff shafted version of the Mizuno Fli-Hi CLK and found it to be an excellent substitute for a 1 or 2 iron.
The Fli-Hi gives a penetrating flight and you can hit it high or low with ease. It is designed to hit it as straight as your swing will allow and it works whether hitting off a tee or off the ground.
The dark head looks great, especially with the graphite pattern discernible in certain lights. Wherever you hit it on the face you get forgiveness and great feedback.
The forged head of the Fli-Hi CLK felt much better 'balanced' head through impact than some other clubs we have tried and it sounds great too.
The shaft is a little shorter than some of the competitor clubs, which meant we did not get much more distance than say a 19 degree loft in another make, but it did make it feel more controllable, which at the end of the day is what the club is all about.
A winner from Mizuno.
