Mizuno Pro 223 Iron Set
Who’s It For?
Few manufacturers, if any, in golf have created more consistently beautiful and functional irons than Mizuno. The company’s newest iron sets stem from their Pro line, which includes the 221, 223, and 225 irons. All three of these models underwent Mizuno’s famed grain flow forging process, and each sport a copper underlay to further increase feel at impact. Also, each model is designed for a different type of golfer. This model, the Mizuno Pro 223, is built for middle and low handicap golfers seeking an iron with the benefits of a blade and a profile less intimidating than that of a muscle back.
The Tech Story
Grain flow forged from a single billet of 1025E mild carbon steel in the 8-iron through pitching wedge, the Pro 223’s “scoring irons” were designed with an emphasis on optimizing touch. The set’s 4-7 irons’ heads are Forged Chromoly with a Flow Microslot that balance powerful distance with superb accuracy. A precisely beveled back edge allowed Mizuno engineers to find room for the micro slot without having to compromise their authentic tour-accepted sole. By blending an unmatched feel with stout distance capabilities, Mizuno has made their Pro 223 Irons a terrific option for great iron players.
