TaylorMade R9 Irons, Mizuno MX-1000

ImageThe fall means new golf equipment! Today our friend Scott Kramer looks at some of the latest and greatest from TaylorMade and Mizuno…  

First up, TaylorMade debuted R9 oversized irons: The perimeter-weighted 3- through 6-irons sport a large, enclosed "Velocity-Control Chamber" behind the clubface and underneath the cavity badge, generating face flex at impact for more distance. The compact short irons incorporate a deep undercut cavity and broad, low-CG sole, to induce spin 

Lastly, Mizuno has showed off several new clubs, including four sets of irons: The MP-58 irons are Mizuno's first multi-material forged iron – sporting titanium in the outer muscle of the iron, and like the new muscleback MP-68 irons, also feature rolled leading and trailing edges, and flattened mid-sole; the game-improvement MX-300 irons have a minimal progressive offset, small clubhead and modest sole width; and MX-1000 irons feature a maraging steel face that's plasma-welded to a stainless steel body, for a high COR and MOI; MP T-10 wedges feature mild carbon steel clubheads, 360º sole grind and a thin top line; and MP FLI-HI hybrid irons have a thin, hot, maraging steel face and stainless steel body

That's all for now… thanks for the insider look Scott!

  1. The mizuno blades have always looked good!With times changing and modern day golfers sometimes seeking something slightly different to the pure ball strikers of yesteryear,I must state to the lower handicapped golfer that the MS-7 and TP-9 are great blades but the MP-33 range make more sense.
