So you're a low- to low-mid-handicap golfer, and you want irons that are built for your shotmaking capabilities. But you don't want a pure muscleback; you'd like a player's iron that provides a bit more forgiveness than a traditional blade.

If that describes you, then you're the golfer to whom the Mizuno MP-54 irons are targeted.

The MP-54s have what Mizuno calls a "step muscle design" that puts more thickness behind the impact zone for a solid feel. But the 3- through 7-irons in the set have a "Milled Pocket Cavity," a 4-millimeter wide slot that adds some stability on off-center strikes, boosts the launch angle, and helps create a steeper landing angle. It also saves weight that is repositioned around the perimeter.

The 8-iron through pitching wedge don't have the pocket cavity; they have the thicker blade for the feel and control better players want in their scoring irons.

The MP-54s are forged using Mizuno's Grain Flow Forging process; a "perimeter grind" reduces the apparent width of the topline and sole.

The Mizuno MP-54 irons come with a stock shaft of True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 and stock grip of Golf Pride M-31 58 Round (custom options available). The MSRP is $999.99, and they are available in both RH and LH. Golfers also have the option of ordering a custom set make-up that replaces some long irons with Mizuno's MP-H4 long-iron alternative.
