It is a load of *******, find yourself a good independent club fitter, far more chance of being fitted correctly.

Has anyone got a bad thing to say about Mizuno's? Seems that everyone rates them on this board from what i've read.

haha did you have the 2011's? i just dont like the fact that you cant get a 4 iron, and the PW is too big
Not sure if they were 2011s, although i bought them in 2011 lol. Found them far to chunky and like you hated that my longest iron was a 5!!!

I got a used set of mizzys off ebay and love them so much. Dont think ill ever own anything other than mizzy now

It depends, are you curious and just fancy giving it a go, if so then don't do it.

Once you have got a decent shaft matched to you and you crisply hit a nice Forged Mizzy, then you will be ordering a set and it will cost you a few hundred quid.

Go at our own risk....:whoo:

Forget Mizunos, the future is Orka ;)

Fully custom fitted, soft as butter to hit and a lot cheaper too!

Go on...you know you want too........ :rofl:
They are not cheaper though are the? I paid £75 per iron for my Mizunos with half cord grips and I don't think the Orka are cheaper than that are they? I Got a good price and I know MP 69 are more like £100 per but the Orke must be £85 per?

@OP you can clearly see that Mizuno irons are very well respected although not loved by all. Those that love tend to stick with the brand for irons for ever*.

Mizuno woods are a strange one, I understand that the JPX woods are very good though I did not like the stock shaft. The title of the post will pull Astecs in soon and he loves his JPX though not enough not to smash then on the wall. You dont see very many Mizuno woods on tour, Luke who's main sponsor is Mizuno used TM woods for example. If you look around you club you will see a few of the very low handicap players using them, they seem to me to appeal to this section. For me the jury is out on then, I love the size and shape of the MP series but I think Titlest do the same but better.

Love the irons & wedges, probably mizuno for life now, but in the woods/hyrbids? Ping or TM all the way! Putters, Ping every time!

Yep, the JPX woods are a joy to hit. Not hit a golf ball in over a week. Might need to go to the range tonight.
