The Mizuno MP-69 irons are modern take on classic blades, but with as much forgiveness as this style of iron will allow.
The concave muscle back on the rear of the blade is a larger then you would expect, but it really adds forgiveness without losing any of the visual appeal or performance of a blade. Anything slightly off-centre still maintains the feel and flight of a centre hit, although you will know about it if you really mis-hit it.
The centre of gravity changes through the set to give a higher flight on the longer irons and this does make them a little more playable. As you go down to the short irons the feel and flight are excellent, although the progressively shorter heads start to get a little on the compact side by the time you get to the wedge.
As ever with Mizuno blades the MP-69's a pleasure to play shorter shots around the green where the feel on chips and pitches really comes into its own.
That said, these are a low single figure handicap player's iron and if you are one of those golfers you wants to play blades then the Mizuno MP 69s are the most playable set on the market.
