Martin Hopley

The Mizuno MX-100 irons are essentially a larger version of the MX-200 irons. The heads are not only a bit longer, but they also have a wider sole and a larger and deeper cavity behind the head.

All this is aimed at the higher handicapper who needs a little extra help with their irons and we are pleased to say they work. The large cavity is visible at address on some of the longer irons, which can be a little off-putting, but the forgiveness of the MX-100 heads soon has you forgetting about this.

Even on off-centre hits these Mizuno irons were forgiving with no loss of distance. However if you struggle with your long irons then you may want to drop the 4-iron for the excellent MX-Fli-Hi utility instead.

Unusually for a set of irons these days, the MX-100 irons come with a sand iron included and unusually for inclusive sand-irons it is actually pretty good. The wide sole will get you out of the heaviest sand or rough and the feel was pretty good too.

The MX-100 irons are cast rather than forged like the MX-200 irons and although they don't feel quite as nice as a result, they still give plenty of feel, even if they do seem a little heavier from that bigger cavity.

Overall a good set of irons for the high handicapper who wants to improve.
