The MP-58 iron was the first Mizuno MP iron to use a forged titanium insert in the back of the head and now the Mizuno MP-59 iron takes this is a step further.
At address the MP59 have a larger head than the previous model and this is a welcome change, especially in the long irons, which now look much more appealing. The location of the titanium Ti Muscle behind the impact area ensures that the centre of gravity is located closer to the clubface and improves stability which allows Mizuno to reduce the offset.
The sole is a little wider than before and you might expect this to launch the ball quite high, but we found that was not the case. The flight was similar to the MP-69 blades and the forgiveness is excellent for a forged iron of this size.
Compared to the previous MP-58s, the ball speed is a little faster and the feel is much better right through the set. Together with the Tour tested bevelled grind across the back of the sole, we feel they are much better looking too.If you are single figure or mid handicapper who prefers a blade looking iron then these are one of the best feeling and most forgiving irons of this style in the market, so check them out.
