Mizuno MP 64 Review

Introduced in 2012, Mizuno MP-64 irons outwardly resemble 2010’s successful MP-63 model.  Both sets use Mizuno’s “Diamond Muscle” design, and in a way you can view MP-64 irons as an updated version of the MP-63s.  Neither model has the “V” slot that’s present in 2010’s Diamond Muscle MP-53 set.

For what it’s worth, Luke Donald loves this particular model.  In fact, he started playing them almost as soon as he could.  He hardly ever changes irons (his previous irons were MP-59s), but he switched within a week of testing Mizuno MP-64 irons.  That’s how good they are.

The company describes the Diamond Muscle design as a “player’s cavity” and views MP-64 irons as the “best feeling ‘player’s cavity’ design that Mizuno has engineered.”  It’s a design that’s intended to provide more forgiveness in the long irons while giving the scoring irons more control.  Nonetheless, it’s important to realize that even though some additional forgiveness was built into MP-64s, the top priorities were enhanced feel and control.

Mizuno MP-64 irons were designed using a combination of Luke Donald’s input and data produced by computerized simulation tools.  The Diamond Muscle design, when combined with Mizuno’s patented Grain Flow Forging™ process and 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel, does more than just enhance the clubs’ feel:  because the depths of the cavity progress as you move through the set, each iron is individually optimized to be easier to hit and control.  The cavity progression through a set of Mizuno MP-64 irons is almost perfect, a characteristic that’s made possible by their computer-aided design.

The compact heads, minimal offset and sole design of Mizuno MP-64 irons make shot-shaping much easier and more controlled, while the modified U-grooves provide the spin that makes the clubs versatile and playable from various types of terrain.

Mizuno MP-64 irons have been a hit with better players.  They have the understated good looks, shot-making ability, tight dispersion, trajectory control, and super-soft, consistent feel that skilled players demand.  The only real knock on them is that they’re fairly unforgiving, so you need to be an excellent ball-striker to play them well.

If that describes you, you’ll love playing Mizuno MP-64 irons.  You can work them like a blade, although they do have a slight hint of forgiveness.  However, if your ball-striking isn’t as consistent as you’d like, you might want to look into one of Mizuno’s more forgiving models instead– a set of Mizuno MP-59s, MP-57s or MP-53s might be a better fit for your swing.
