The Mizuno MP-H5 will suit players who have grown up on traditional irons but don't want to be left behind on distance and technology. Launch forgiveness is one of the hottest trends on the professional Tours, and now you can add it to your bag as well.
Mizuno say Luke uses the H5 in the 2 and 3 iron, so if even he needs help at that end of the bag then most amateurs probably need it from the 6 or 7 iron.
When I checked out the MP-H5 against the MP-15 and JPX850 Forged with a launch monitor on our outdoor range, the MP-H5 was about the same as the MP-15, but 2-4 mph slower than the JPX850 Forged.
The flight was higher than the MP-15 and pretty similar to the JPX850 Forged and the previous MP-H4. The deeper hollow head helps acheive this even though the JPX850 Forged head is longer and should therefore be more forgiving.
The feel was just as good the semi-blade MP-15 as the mass behind the ball was steel rather than titanium. This is quite an achievement as the 7-iron through Pitching Wedge are grain flow forged like the irons, whereas the 6-iron upwards are a different construction with a full hollow head and a Maraging Steel face.
