Mizuno Irons. An Introduction.
Mizuno's reputation for quality was forged from the moment it began exporting clubs to Europe in the late 1970s. At that time normal irons were forged from a single mould and would emerge rough-and-ready and in need of plenty of hand grinding - a process that created inconsistency.
A tour pro would need to order around 10 sets to find nine irons they were happy using. But Mizuno's double forging process, which used two moulds, was very precise and needed only minimum hand grinding. Consistency was much greater. Mizuno has refined that Grain Flow Forging process over 30 years, which is still used today at its exclusive Hiroshima plant.Read More
In an era where the public are increasingly aware of the workings of media and sponsorship, Mizuno's approach has created a reputation that outlasts any individual player. Tour Operations Manager Andy Kikidas, "Mizuno's standard iron heads are of a quality that tour players can use them straight of our shelves.
"That makes Mizuno a great choice for young players coming through the ranks and big names in-between equipment contracts. These are the players whose equipment choices really count. In 2010 we had 3 previous Major winners and a multiple winner of the European Order of Merit winner active with our irons on tour. Not one of them was paid. It's rumored one of them bought his set of MP irons at a local shop."
"Luke Donald is an ideal ambassador for us - a precise shotmaker. He played our irons as a junior, and at college - when he signed with Mizuno as a professional he was already sold on the irons. If Luke ever left Mizuno, he could walk down to his pro shop and order an identical set". Andy Kikidas, Tour Operations Manager.
Mizuno now invest even more in irons for amateur golfers as it does for the professional ranks. The JPX line incorporates the Mizuno values of aesthetics with unexpected forgiveness and ball speed. Combined with Mizuno's Swing DNA system of shaft selection, players of all handicaps now have access to the incredible feeling of a Mizuno iron struck out the middle.
The Art of Forging.
You can think of casting like making ice in your freezer - you are turning a liquid into a solid by using a mould.
Cast irons tend to be made from a stainless steel alloy; the steel goes into a furnace, melts, and is then poured into a ceramic mould. When everything has cooled down the mould is broken, leaving the club inside.
With forging, the club is fashioned from one piece of metal. At Mizuno we make irons out of bars of mild carbon steel; the bars are 10in long and about one inch in diameter. The metal is heated until it is red hot, then hammered and crafted into shape. Read More
