The MP-60 has been Mizuno’s most talked about iron for a couple of months now but the rest of the 2006 lineup has been introduced. Pictures and info are now available on Edwin Watts.Along with the MP-60, Mizuno will be introducing the MX-900 iron.
The MX-900 is a high-end, game improvement iron. The set features 3-7 iron as a larger, more forgiving iron. These irons look somewhat similar to the MX-23 but will have a wider sole and a tungsten plug in the bottom along with “hollow technology”. These are designed to play almost like a hybrid club but will have a forged face and neck. The short irons (8-PW) are forged from 1035 carbon steel and are a one-piece club designed to provide accuracy in the scoring clubs. You can expect these to be Mizuno’s most expensive irons ever as Mizuno is hoping to compete with the Callaway Fusion and Taylor Made CGB irons.
The Mizuno MX-500 driver replaces the MP-001 line. Like the MP-001, this driver has a composite crown. It also has a composite toe insert which will place more weight deep and in the heel. The MX-500 is a 460 cc head with a deeper center of gravity and more perimeter weighting than the MP-001. Mizuno has also redesigned it to try and give the driver a more solid sound at impact.
The F-50 is the new fairway wood offering from Mizuno. It is slightly larger and deeper than the MP-001 and has a redesigned leading edge to set up square. The F-50 also has a composite crown.
Look for all of these clubs to be available in early September.
