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.

There is no doubt the Mizuno Fli-Hi CLK is a good looking club and it sat well to the ball. The swing indicated that the Fli-Hi is a wellmade and balanced club. The shots from this 19 degree regular shafted sample flew with penetration. My results were not always consistent (very likely it's just me !) and it needed a steady swing to achieve real results. Good as a chipper from just off the green.

The Mizuno Fli-Hi utility club that is definitely much easier to hit than my 2 iron. Tried the 17' version and it did get the ball out there. Sits well behind the ball and once struck the ball come off the club head great with a penetration flight. Easy to hit from a tee or a tight fairway which gives you all the confidence you need.
