We think the Mizuno MP Fli-Hi utility club is the utility club that better players have been waiting for. It sits nicely behind the ball and has the look of a long iron, which will appeal to low handicappers.
However it feels more like a rescue club when you strike the ball, but amazingly does not balloon the ball into the air. We tested it against an MP-60 2-iron and the trajectory was very similar and you could hit it high and low, with a fade or draw with ease.
When it comes to forgiveness there is no contest as the MP Fli-Hi is so much easier to hit than a normal long iron. Even though the sole is quite wide, the fact that is has zero bounce means that this width is not really an issue and it is therefore excellent from tight lies and easier to hit from the semi-rough than a traditional long-iron.
Unless you are a masochist or someone who sleeps with their 2 and 3 iron, the Mizuno MP Fli-Hi utility club should be in your bag to replace your long irons as it does the same job, but so much more easily.
