Mizuno MP-20 MMC Iron Set
Who’s It For?
Mizuno has earned a prestigious reputation for constructing exceptional forged irons. The MP line, specifically, has always delivered in the feel and workability departments. The MP-20 irons continue this trend of excellence from Mizuno. The MP-20 MMC (multi-material concept) irons feature a compact shallow-cavity construction with a thin topline that will work best for consistent ball strikers with a low handicap. Golfers searching for an increased emphasis on workability will want to look at the MP-20 MB irons.
The Tech Story
As is the case with nearly every model in the Mizuno MP line, the MP-20 MMC irons are highlighted by the patented Grain Flow Forging process from a single billet of 1025E mild carbon steel, a process that produces superb feel. Enhancing the feel even further is the soft copper plating layer placed on top of the carbon steel. Mizuno recently conducted blind testing with tour professionals to compare models with and without the soft copper layer, and the model that included the copper layer was universally preferred. The MP-20 MMC irons also include progressive Titanium muscle plates and tungsten sole weighting, each of which is more prominent in the longer irons and reduced in the shorter irons. Additionally, after receiving feedback from tour professionals, Mizuno reduced the topline by 0.3mm in the longer irons and 0.4mm in the shorter irons compared to the MP-18 MMC model. This change adds workability and precision for players that like to control their trajectory and shape shots.
“The new MMC is the smaller, sharper version of the original. For a player with a traditional eye looking for a little stability from off-center strikes, but comfortable with their distances and ball speed, this is the iron.” -- Jeff Cook, Mizuno PGA Tour Manager
