Above, Golf Monthly technical editor Paul O’Hagan gives his Mizuno MP-H5 irons review.
At a glance:
– A high-launching iron designed to combat modern course set-ups
– The MP-H5s are available from 1-iron to pitching wedge and cost £115 per iron
Mizuno is calling the MP-H5 a “new type of players’ iron” – designed for the demands of tougher, modern layouts.
It features a “hollow flow” concept that launches the ball higher to encourage a steeper landing that should be beneficial when hitting longer approaches to tighter pin positions on firmer greens.
Crucially, the MP-H5 achieves its forgiving launch without detracting from the look of the top line, or by adding lots of offset, making the scoring clubs relatively compact.
Replacing the popular MP-H4, the MP-H5 has hollow and part-hollow offerings from 1-iron to pitching wedge. The split set sees the 1-6 irons take on a full-hollow design, featuring a high COR steel face to make them more forgiving, while the 7-PW irons are only part hollow with a Grain Flow Forged face, neck and body to offer more feel and workability.
“The MP-H5 irons will suit players who have grown up on traditional irons, but don’t want to be left behind on distance and stopping power,” explains Chuck Couch, Mizuno’s vice president of product management.
“In another 10 years we think the majority of tour players will be using irons like these,”
Mizuno MP-H5 irons are available to purchase now with an RRP of £115 per club.
