Mizuno irons dominated the ‘Shotmaker’s’ category in Golf WRX’s annual members polls for 2020. Members of the world’s largest golf forum selected the MP-20 blade as the best shotmakers iron in the game (13.69%), beating Mizuno’s own JPX919 Tour into 2nd place (11.29%). Only two non Mizuno irons featured in the top 5 – with the Mizuno MMC (6.27%) taking 5th spot.
All three Mizuno irons are Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima Japan – where Mizuno’s forged irons have been produced since 1968. The precise manufacturing technique ensures continuous, uniform grain within each head – giving a unique Mizuno feel and precise distance control. Mizuno’s MP irons introduced in September 2019 also have a soft copper under layer – originally used in Mizuno’s iconic TN87 muscleback.
Mizuno’s Chris Voshall commented.
More than anything, this is a great reward for sticking to Mizuno’s principles and maintaining a belief in forging when the rest of the industry was almost exclusively casting its irons. It gave Mizuno a 10 year window to refine the Grain Flow Forging process in Hiroshima – which puts us in this great position today.
