Mizuno Irons-Value for money?

I was talking to the assistant pro at our place yesterday and asked him if they sold many Mizuno iron sets. To which he replied no as they were too pricey and other manufacturers were more competable.
Have any other peolpe come across this? Personally I think you pay for quality.

I agree, I think they are good value for money, you get what you pay with regards to quality. Another thing, the online registered dealers are offering good discounts on the new models.

It depends what you compare too really.

Mizuno are fairly mid way in the price scale if you are looking at like for like (e.g. Forged vs Forged).

Cast irons are cheaper to produce so some manufacturers can look cheaper across their range because their range is virtually all cast clubs.

The other thing is how much stock there is of old models. If you are willing to buy clubs "off the rack" and you don't care about latest models. In discount stores you will find really low prices of older model clubs (still new). More often than not these will not be Mizuno who don't seem to get stockpiled in this way.

Mizuno might be slightly more expensive than some other brands, but you pay for the quality of the clubs. When you compare their cast clubs to other brands there isn't much of a difference and again when you compare there forged irons to Titleist who seem to be the main competitor in terms of quality.

The idea of cost is a strange one though. I'm sure that same pro is flogging TM and Callaway drivers at £300 without much of a problem. Some people seem to be happy spending big on one club but the idea of spending a bit extra on irons scares them.

The issue is not so much the cost to the customer, as this is comparable with other irons on the market... The issue is that the margins on Mizuno irons are tighter which is why the retailers don't push them as much.

They can make up to three times the profit on TM and Callaway than they can on Mizuno.

So the fact that most retailers really push other brands is not because these other brands are better, but there is more money in it for them!

That's why you'll be ushered towards John Letters or Nicklaus irons in certain chain golf stores :)

I think mizuno mp53's were good value for money. A forged set that I paid £540 for. The comparable titleist ap2 were more expensive and as for a set of callaways that were close to a grand I would put my mizunos as a good price for a good product.

ESP if you use the forum discount at a certain store ;-)

Mizuno is a screaming deal for what you get

All forged irons are same price...$1000

Mid cavity forged $699-899

All manufactures are equal when it comes to these models in pricing

You have to compare like to like ..... You can't compare a forged blade or players cavity to some oversized cast club

They are comparable to Japanese domestic irons IMO and have you seen there prices $1500-2000

What we in the UK have to remember is that importing Mizuno clubs is an expensive business nowadays. The £ isn't as strong as it once was and exchange rates have affected import and the retail cost of the club.
