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.
