The hollow construction allows weight to be manipulated to aid forgiveness and create a higher launch angle. The ‘hot metal’ face will also improve distance and forgiveness. The Mizuno MX-1000 irons should suit golfers who place forgiveness at the top of their list of priorities, like to look down on a thick topline, and desire a high ball flight.
Mizuno MX-1000 irons: £105 per steel club, £125 per graphite club
With its wide sole, thick top edge and large clubface the Mizuno MX-1000 proved exceptionally forgiving. Despite saying ‘Hot Metal' on the rear, the contact was softer, and more subtle than expected. Could be ideal for those comfortable with supersized clubheads.
