The Mizuno MP-60 iron is the answer to the prayers of mid to low handicap golfers.

Over the last year we have been thinking 'wouldn't it be good to have the performance and headsize of the MP-23 blades combined with the forgiveness of the MP-30 hybrids'.

Lo and behold Mizuno were thinking the same thing and the result is the MP-60. The head size is a little bigger than the MP-30, but you still get the forgiveness benefit of the cut-muscle design.

The hybrid design not only looks great, but gives the club a little more forgiveness and a much better feel than the MP-32. The acclaimed Mizuno forging process means you get great feel combined with the ability to shape the ball anyway you want.

Every now and then Mizuno create some classic models that raise the bar and stand the test of time, such as the TP-9 & TP-11 blades and the T-Zoid Pro hybrids.

We think the MP-60 is one of these and serious golfers should definitely check these out. Bear in mind Mizuno irons lie flatter than most so go for the custom fit option if you are taller than your average Japanese golfer!

I grew up on blades in the late-70s/early-80s then came back to the game this century. I sold my beautiful but unforgiving MP-33s as I just lost a much distance on mishits and then found some MP-60s in a North Wales shop. The look identical at address, feel beautiful, are still workable and add consistency. I can’t see how I’ll ever want different irons - maybe another set once I wear them out!

Bought from the Bay, cut the shafts, changed the grips, did the lofts and lies... lots of work but now have a great set for the vacation house. I gave a try to the 67, 68 and 69 but none worked for me. Cannot rate them 5* as only the MP 32 deserve it but very similar feel with only a substantially higher launch. The long irons are really easy to hit. Butter feel, plenty of spin on short and medium irons.

Played competitively in the 1990's and was messing around on EBay when I came across this set. 2 degrees upright + 1/2 in. in length and stole them for an amazing price. I can feel the quality of the club even though I have sensicore , Dynamic S/L shafts. Overall, they are a quality build, and good looking set of clubs. Direct feedback for off-centre hits, but I am a zero handicap. I'd recommend these to low-handicap players only.

Not bad, but NOTHING feels better than the MP-32.

I have been using the MP-60 for a few years and I loved them. It improved my distance and accuracy and lowered my handicap. As my age was catching up and strength was not in my favour I needed a lighter set which I then got me the Mizuno JPX E III Forged graphite irons. Hope to play well with my new set. As for the MP-60 I gave them to my son and hope he will like them as much as I do.

I've recently bought a set of MP-60's and although they are 10+ years old they are still really good clubs. I bought them because they were fairly priced and I just wanted to try them out. They are by no means a beginners club, but in the hands of a good ball striker they are really fun. At my home course I hold a 1 handicap although the last few times I've played I've finished under par. I may actually put them in my bag and play a round with them because they are really crisp clubs.

Have been playing with these clubs for 5 years. They have a great feel off the club face when you connect flush with the ball.

These clubs taught me how to play golf. They are amazing!

September 2015

I started playing the MP-60's about a year and a half ago and they are simply the finest golf clubs I have ever hit. The feel is unsurpassed and I have tried a lot of clubs. The only clubs that came close were a set of muscle back forged Haigs which was my first set. I am 52 years old and have had spine surgery 5 times and play to a 6 handicap. On a good day at my home course I'm under par. With the MP-60's I can work the ball and the spin is excellent.

I am a 20+ handicap and bought these without seeing them as they were offered at a great price by an acquaintance. Big mistake though my game has not come on as they are definitely low handicapper clubs, and as a result I can't play with them. Result of that is low confidence so am looking to get another set more fitting to my level.

Tried these Mizuno MP-60 irons at the Fitting Centre in Surrey as well, totally convinced, loved them, so easy to hit. Am waiting for my order of 3-PW as we speak!! Probably would have bought them anyway just based on looks! Thanks Mizuno!!

I play with a handicap of 8 and have the Mizuno T-Zoid Pro II's. However I can vouch for these Mizuno MP-60 irons personally as I tried them at the National Mizuno fitting centre in Surrey. They look and feel great, and will make you want to play more golf with them (as an advert in Golf World magazine states). Great stuff, I have already started saving.
