Through the years I have had an opportunity to test many of Mizunos irons. Starting with the MP54, 15, 25, H4, H5 and the JPX Forged Irons. All these great and innovative clubs but never their blades. Blades were always clubs I feared. Yes, I can hit them but can I do it consistently? A believer in "game whats easy to swing" or "whatever makes the game easier". Although I still agree to those motto's I have coined in the past, I feel my stance on hitting clubs I "feared" has softened as well. For 2018, my new years resolution was to grow as a golfer. Conquer my fears of hitting blades and just go for it. When the opportunity came to choose my Mizuno testing clubs, the decision to test the MP18's with the KBS Custom Tour White Pearl XStiff shafts was a no brainier!

From a looks standpoint, with that satin chrome nickel finish you have one of the sexiest set of clubs I have seen. Designed as a throwback to the muscle-backs of Mizuno’s past with a shorter blade length, cambered top line and steep progression into sharp, compact wedges. Confidence builders at first sight? Probably not but after the first swing with the MP18's you feel you can't do no wrong! That is the pure brilliance of these irons in my opinion.

Mizuno has created probably the easiest, most forgiving, won't give up distance and soft feeling blade I have ever had the pleasure of hitting. They call it Grain Flow Forged HD. Basically, its a Forging process that increases grain density in the impact area for the ultimate soft, solid, consistent feel​. Pair that process with 1025E steel and you have a fantastic feeling club.

I found it very easy to swing. Feels amazing when pured but not that harsh with mis-hits. There is no lack of confidence when I game these irons. When you see how easy they are to hit you will feel the same way as well. I will say that for the 3 and 4 irons, I went with the HiFli clubs. I have no problem accepting the fact that I can use a little more help with my long irons. All the major OEMs are now going with hollow body long irons. We can all use an extra element of speed, power and launch with our long irons. At least I can.
