Stock shaft: Pick from 16 steel and graphite op­tions 7i loft/length: 34° / 36.75”

TECH: Mizuno’s 1025 boron steel gives the ex­tra strength re­quired to cre­ate mi­cro-slot pocket cav­i­ties in the 3-6 irons, which means in­creased face flex and ball speeds.

WE SAY: The MP-25s have been around for a cou­ple of years now; it was Mizuno’s first boron-in­fused MP bet­ter player iron. Adding boron al­lows engi­neers to play tricks with face thick­ness and pocket cav­i­ties that couldn’t be done with forged irons be­fore. We felt the 25 was a very good look­ing, sta­ble and playable iron that com­bines a de­cent shape with a de­gree of for­give­ness. Its loft is a cou­ple of de­grees weaker than some, so it was al­ways go­ing to need to bust a gut to com­pete in terms of dis­tance. But in terms of ball speed drop-off be­tween cen­tre and off-cen­tre hits, it’s a very solid, well­bal­anced de­sign.

VER­DICT: If you must have the look of a bet­ter player iron, but aren’t the best ball­striker, they could be right up your street.
