Refined by our master craftsmen in YORO Japan – the MP-18s are inspired by every great player to pure a Mizuno iron since 1933. The master mould of every head checked and adapted to the satisfaction of our most experienced clubmakers – including the legendary Turbo. Three models Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima Japan designed to mix and match within a custom set. To find the artist in every player.
Mizuno MP-18 / The Craftsmen’s Muscleback
Sculpted by our YORO master craftsmen, the MP-18 is a throwback to the muscle-backs of Mizuno’s past. A shorter blade length, cambered top line and steep progression into sharp, compact wedges are the marks of our master clubmakers – who honed their skills on the irons of major winners. Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima Japan for the most colourful feedback imaginable. 3-PW / Right hand only. RRP £135 / Euro 175 per iron.
“You can sense Turbo’s signature on the MP-18s – they remind me of the blades we worked on together all those years ago.” – Nick Faldo, Six-time Major winner
Mizuno MP-18 SC / The Player’s Cavity Back
A compact cavity back – sensitively reworked by the same Master Craftsmen who created multiple major winning iron sets. A slightly wider, cambered sole makes this more playable than the muscle back. Though the thin, tapered top line, short head length and smaller wedges mean this is very much a tour-ready iron. Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima for the most colourful feedback through impact. RH & LH / 3-PW. RRP £135 / Euro 175 per iron.
“The MP-18 SC is an iron that combines a lot of practical needs – stability, workability and softness at impact with our craftsmen’s desire for immaculate looks over the ball. Although the sole is a little wider than the muscle back, from every playing position, the two models blend beautifully as a mixed set.” Chris Voshall, Senior Engineer
Mizuno MP-18 MMC / Multi-Metal Cavity
A three-year project lead by our Yoro master craftsmen to develop a highly stable, forgiving multi-metal construction iron – which satisfied their aesthetic demands at address. Even with both lightweight Titanium and heavier tungsten parts sealed within its 1025E mild carbon steel head, the MP-18 MMC maintains a similar ‘tour ready’ profile and size to the MP-18 SC. RH only 4-PW. RRP £150 / Euro 195 per iron.
“The MP-18 MMC is the first multi-material MP iron built in the vision of our master clubmakers – which set standards for looks and aesthetics that this kind of multi-metal construction typically prohibits. It extended our normal two-year development cycle by a full year – but raising the bar that little bit higher delivered this landmark iron.” Chris Voshall, Senior Engineer.
MP-18 MMC Fli-Hi / The Player’s Long Iron
The finishing touch to an MP-18 set – the long iron replacement now used by every Mizuno tour player. A higher flying option with steeper landing angles, engineered with a profile acceptable to our Yoro master clubmakers. The sleek new profile now envelopes a Maraging steel face, Tungsten toe weight and internal pocket for enhanced ball speed and ease of use. RH only / 2-5 iron. RRP £150 / Euro 195 per iron.
“The Fli-Hi is very much a fixture on tour now – even the most classically minded players have converted to the #2 and #3 iron replacements. These are worlds away from heavily offset ‘game improvement’ hybrids – but much easier than a traditional long iron to flight and land in firm conditions.” Chris Voshall, Senior Engineer.
