Mizuno launched its new Mizuno MP-4 irons. It impressed me when I sam the the first time.
The MP-4 gives real shot-makers the ultimate control over their ball flight – with the very purest feel and feedback possible. If you want to learn to become a truly great shotmaker, the MP-4 is the best teacher you can have. By adding more bulge in the shorter irons, the MP-4 irons maintain the shot and trajectory control demanded by the game’s best players. On the other hand, the longer irons require a lower centre of gravity to produce a quick launch and steeper landing angle.
They are also a replacement for the Mizuno MP-69 Irons, MP-4 is a true muscle back blade meant for the better player who wants the ultimate in workability and aesthetic simplicity. One of the new features to this design is what Mizuno calls Variable Muscle Thickness.This design allows for the muscle thickness to change progressively through the set, optimizing the ball speed and launch condition from one iron to the next.
In the longer irons, you will notice the most consistent thickness which keeps a majority of the mass low for higher trajectory. The mid irons start to show an increased bulge in the muscle to help with control. The muscle bulge is most prominent in the scoring discount golf clubs and reduces down through to the slender long irons where design emphasis is placed on creating a quick launch and steeper landing angle to knock down flags.
Lastly, the short MP-4 irons have the largest bulge which positions the most mass directly behind the point of impact for a smaller, cleaner looking head size.
