Mizuno MP-53 Irons

From Golf Magazine (April 2011)
Category: Tour Irons
We tested: 3-PW with True Temper Dynamic Gold steel shaft

Key Technologies: The 3- through 7-irons have a milled "Pocket Cavity" that frees up 14 grams. The extra mass is distributed around the perimeter and contributes to the highest MOI (forgiveness) of any MP iron. The forged carbon steel heads feature a "diamond muscle" design for consistent, soft feel.

OUR TESTERS SAY: It's more like a game-improvement iron than Mizuno's typical forgings.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: A good option for shotmakers—distinct ability to shape shots; high ball flight, particularly in longer irons.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Forgiveness aplenty with unexpected distance on slight mis-hits; shots hit slightly thin carry well and stay in play.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Pure shots generate one-half club extra length.
FEEL: Pleasing impact sensation isn't quite the soft, "stick to the face" feel that several testers associate with previous Mizuno irons.
LOOK: Thick, beefy look in scoring irons; thinnish topline does a nice job of masking the slightly larger head.

CONS
For some testers, this iron leans too much toward game improvement; looks more like a larger cavity back than other Mizuno irons.
