The Mizuno MP-H5 fall into the category of better player irons and they retail for $1000 in the steel version and $1100 for the graphite version. After playing a few rounds with the MP-H5, I would describe them as being more of an elite player game improving irons. Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a bit, but truth be told, these beautiful pieces of golf gear are firmly aimed at category 1 players above all else. I mean, if you can’t hit the middle of the club, I have bad news for you. Because the Mizuno MP-H5 do look and play just like a blade, meaning increased ball speeds and higher launch trajectories, due to their progressively bigger hollow cavity head and also the deeper COG (center of gravity). Basically, these babies are designed as high launching irons, ready to meet and exceed the demands of modern/tougher layouts with flying colors. Actually, Mizuno themselves describe the MP-H5 as being a new type of player’s iron and designed for aggressive court layouts.
The hollow construction concept incorporated into the Mizuno MP-H5 is focused at delivering a highly controllable ball flight via the deep COG and the launch forgiveness gives professional players an increased shot making control. Basically, all your shots will start and stay high, well above other irons offered by the competition and the ball trajectory will be straight as an arrow. In terms of playability, the Mizuno MP-H5 really deliver repeatable/consistent flights on shots from any lie; the long irons in the MP-H5 set play/feel just like the Fli-Hi hybrids, and that’s very nice. In terms of forgiveness and accuracy, Mizuno did a great job with these irons, the MP-H5 being some of the most forgiving of the bunch, being very accurate and offering straight, consistent results round after round. Bottom line, the Mizuno MP-H5 produce very reliable and consistent yardages, they’re stable through impact, they’re well balanced, they boost confidence and in the same time they look gorgeous with their beautiful satin-chrome finish. If you don’t mind the forgiveness at the expense of workability, these truly are player’s clubs.
