MP59 v MP64

Hi guys. Just wondering if you can help me out on a decision.

My blades are getting on in age. And after submitting my thesis at the end of this year, I figured I'd give myself a present.

I won't be able to play as much as I used to, and some injuries are going to effect my swing from here on. So blades are out of the question. But my iron play is my greatest strength.

And after hitting some clubs over the last six months, I can't split the 59s and 64s.

Despite the theory, I hit the 59s a bit lower than the 64s. Hitting skyscrapers is a bit of a problem with my game.

Distance is not a problem. I hit the mp64 6 iron 220 yards. If they did a two iron (that would be nice) I wouldn't need a driver.

I can't split the feel. The 59s are straighter, but I worry about being able to shape shots and punches with them.

Are there any shaft options that could help me with the 64?

Cheers.

Do you have a Mizuno DNA fitting centre nearby?

Best idea would be to get a fitting at a DNA centre or failing that a good fitting pro and discuss your shaft options with him, and then get the 64's!! ;-)

You're not going to have any problems with shaping shots from either of those clubs.
I currently own both sets (selling the MP59s though - there's a post in this forum), I am satisfied with both. I wish I could keep both.

Well, I like the MP59's on the other hand the 64's are a bit tasty too.

There's only one way to find out..........

Luke Donald didn't have any problem shaping shots and he won both money titles last year........ I think if their good enough for Donald no one here should have an issue

You can shape it either way easily with these..... They are basically a blade with hint of perimeter weighting
