The Mizuno MP-32 iron is a great new development for those who prefer to play with blades.

They are a little more forgiving than the previous MP irons from Mizuno, but are more classic blade than offerings such as the MP-30 or MP-60.

Therefore these are definitely clubs for the low single figure golfer who will be able to appreciate the feel and performance of the blade design and love that look behind the ball and the feel in the shorter irons.

The heads are actually a little larger than previous Mizuno blades and even the MP-30 hybrid, which is a result of the unique cut muscle design so there is enough clubhead to fill the golfer with confidence.

We were very impressed by the smooth feel off the clubhead that gave just the right amount of feedback on slightly off centre hits yet maintained the workability you need in this category of club.

With a good choice of shafts and the option to be custom fit the Mizuno MP-32 iron is the blade of choice for the better golfer.

Excellent clubs, started golfing 30 years ago with a set of Mizuno TP originals (still in the shed) then tried Ping, Callaway, Titleist irons and reverted back to Mizuno MP-32. Forgot how good mizuno felt off the face especially on pure strikes. Not the most forgiving even for a 2-3 handicap but as they say 'nothing feels like a Mizuno'! These irons unfortunately have no face left on them but the new JPX Tours are on the cards. If you haven't tried a set of Mizuno irons you don't know what your missing, Koepka just won his last 2 US Opens with Mizunos in the bag without sponsorship, tells you something!

I carry a 3 handicap so hitting blades is second nature. Hitting blades that feel like butter, now that’s a different discussion. I can move these irons like the wind can move a bird. They are exceptional. I have Callaway X-Forged and they are great but Mizuno.... you guys must drink different water while making them. I’m a happy camper and would recommend them to anyone who can break 80. Haven’t seen a bogey yet.... Hittem’ straight guys!!!

These are my current set, I'm a higher handicap but it's my putting that definitely keeps out of the lower scores... These hit really nice, they make you think about your shots instead of just setting up and ripping them. You don't need to be a tour pro to hit them you just need to have a consistent swing to get them in the middle. Pretty forgiving on off center shots, even in the longer irons. Hardly any offset to them and very easy to line up at address. I didn't get fitted for them but I usually have a problem with standard length being I'm only 5'8 with super long arms. The toe on standard club lengths usually results in mostly heel sitting on the turf, causing inconsistent strikes for me. With these the standard length is dead perfect, I don't know if Mizuno standard lie angle is flatter or what. I traded my AP2s for these and I have no regrets if your thinking about blades these are the most forgiving ones I've hit so far, although I haven't hit the new MP-18s yet.

I am a 10-Handicap. I was looking for blades that had a small amount of forgiveness. I went to the local range where I told them I was looking for blades. I can hit the center 85% of the time I told them. They gave me the MP-32s to test. Wow! I knew forged heads felt awesome, but never in my dreams did I think I would find a hair of forgiveness in a set of Muscle-Backs. So they took my TaylorMade TP's from 2009 and gave me the MP-32's. So far, been at the range and on the course. My coach was a tad jealous that his client could hit blades.. He told me I would do fantastic and this was one of my best moves I made in terms of equipment. Since I'm on the team, these were what I needed for all the situations: forgiveness, true lofts, exact distance and workability. Even the 3-iron isn't intimidating and I can hit a low-drawing bullet at 200 yards with it. If you are a Pro to a 10-Handicap looking for blades with a little forgiveness, buy these. An Extra tip: Buy Brasso Aluminum shiner to get these guys looking SEXY!!! Rub the polish with a toothbrush and rinse halfway. Wipe with a clean rag and just admire them.

I am a 10 handicap. These are my current set. They are certainly marginally more forgiving than traditional musclebacks, but misses are definitely blade-like. If you hit the middle 85% or more of the time, these are for you. I love them and they don't beat the MP-5. So if you want feel of no other, forgiveness, perfect distance and workability, these are your new set!

I love these irons. I'm an 8 handicap (now) who fluctuates from 5 to 13 depending on the weather and my old body. I have owned the MP-30's in the past and I loved them too. Made the mistake of believing the market hype and trying cast cavity back irons from Callaway, Adams and Ping. Handicap went up, feel went down. I ought these 3 months ago and I am back down to an 8. Feel is great, distance and direction predictable and workability off the charts.

These blades are the best by far I have ever played! I am truly a Mizuno fan having owned the MP33's, MP60's, T zoid trues, and Pro 2's. However, in the end the MP32's win!! If you're wanting feel, forgiveness, and a forged blade look no further. This info coming from mid handicap player who feels anything shot past single digits sucks and is a bad round.

Bottom Line: Get a set asap!!

I got my Mizuno MP-32 irons (4-PW) with Dynamic Gold SL R300 shafts last Aug.2005. I used to be a 21 handicap then, now I play to a 13 index. This says a lot about the precision and control these irons give you. Ball flight is generally high and soft landing even with the long irons. I can punch shots into the wind with precision if my game is on. The smallish heads did take time for me to get used to but a smooth easy swing is all I need to launch the ball. Sloppy swings and poor set-ups will be penalized - focus needed with these irons. Sweet spot hits are just dead straight with a slight draw for me. Around the greens, these are touch irons that are responsive to feel shots. I have been wearing out these forged irons and the dings and marks is a testament to their use. Would like to try to MP-57 but until my MP-32's are still playable I will wear them out. GREAT IRONS!!!

Always been a blade playing golfer and purchased the Mizuno MP-32's six months ago. Prefer the feel and consistency that I get over the previous T-Zoid model I had. Moving from the S400 to S300 shafts contribute to the fun I have had this season. Great distance control, wonderful manoeuvrability, piercing ball flight. Worth going for the custom fit to the Mizuno facility near you. Only grumble are the standard tour velvet grips if you buy off the shelf but that’s a minor irritation easily rectified.

I recently tried the Mizuno MP-32 irons on a trial day at American Golf Ipswich. Having never hit blades before I was surprised on how forgiving they were. They felt very soft and flew on great trajectory. I have used Cleveland Ta3's for years and I'm now buying these, GREAT CLUBS.

What is there to say - custom fit Mizuno MP-32 irons - sent from Heaven. Long carry, workable in both directions, penetrating flight - confidence abounds. The club face gives instant feed back, the ball flight is predictable and constant. The look of the Mizuno MP-32 is magnificent, being a traditionalist they conform to, in my humble opinion, what a golf club should look like. If you try out one set of clubs this year, make it these.

Mizuno have come up with something really special here with the Mp-32 irons. I've been a fan of their irons for a while, and am switching from Comp-EZs with Sensicore shafts. These feel softer, even on miss-hits; there is none of the usual blade jar. But they still feel solid - a very neat trick. Chips and punches also feel great. Distance consistency is excellent, and I was taking noticeably fewer divots, even on a damp course. I'm a mid-handicapper, and by rights should not be using these. I've only played 18 so far with them, but first impressions are that I am at least as good as with my old set, even though feeling rusty after an enforced Christmas lay-off. I always struggled with the Comp-EZ 4i - this one I fly easily. Is the dispersion wider than my "game improvement" set? Probably yes, on bad shots, but I feel that these are going to be good for my game in the long run. The clubs respond to a clean sweep, and it's going to encourage me to set up properly into each shot. These are beautiful, manageable, blades. Any low or aspiring mid-handicapper should try them. This may sound gushing, but I've tried a lot of friends' clubs, and I have never come across such a great combination of feel and performance. These are going to be big.
