Mizuno MX-300 Irons Revealed!

Published:

The ultimate combination of forgiveness and workability is the golf manufacturer's holy grail - and Mizuno believe they have achieved that with the new MX-300 irons.

The Mizuno MX-300 irons have been designed for players looking for the assistance of the undercut cavity and the feel of a forged iron without the usual shotmaking constraints associated with offset and wider soles.

The result is an iron which more closely resembles Mizuno's better player MP range in terms of looks, feel and workability.

However, Mizuno have also been able to retain the forgiveness the MX irons are renowned for thanks to the cavity back and low centre of gravity.

The key is the "Y" tune pad on the rear of the club head which enhances feel and flight control. In addition, 3-7 irons feature a pocket cavity for a high launch while 8-PW utilises a solid power bar for more workability.

David Llewellyn, R&D manager at Mizuno, said: "The MX-300 will be great for solid ball strikers who are accustomed to the forgiveness of a cavity but but want a step up in feel and shotmaking.

"For good ball strikers offset often does the opposite of its intended effect - keeping the ball low rather than generating a higher flight. It also puts the COG way back from the shaft axis meaning the club takes a bit too much control over where the ball heads.

"The MX-300's short compact profile and re-configured Y-tune Pro gives an MP level feel in a head that will be popular on tour but will still work for lots of amateur players."

The Mizuno MX-300 iron comes in a Satin Double Nickel Chrome finish and the grooves conform to 2010 regulations. £85 per club (steel) £110 (graphite).
