Mizuno continues with its introduction of boron into the 2016 MP portfolio. First introduced in 2014, boron is now infused in the new MP-25.
“Introducing boron into the classic MP line is a game changer,” said Chuck Couch, vice president of product development for the Golf Division of Mizuno USA.
“Boron enables more opportunities for our R&D team to push the limits of a forged players iron to increase ball speeds, distance and playability, while staying true to the signature Mizuno look and feel,” he added.
“Over a decade in the making, the use of Boron will maintain our long-standing history of delivering players irons that provide golfers the confidence and shot-making ability to perform at their best,” said Couch.
The new MP-25s are a high ball-speed iron, specifically designed for tour players down to the low- to mid-handicap amateurs.
Using boron, Mizuno engineers introduced Micro Slot technology, a hidden pocket cavity, in the MP-25 irons. Found in the long-irons (three through six iron), Micro Slot technology allows for greater club face flex to encourage greater, consistent ball speeds and more distance, while still delivering solid and consistent feel.
Similar to its MP predecessors, the MP-25 irons are Grain-Flow Forged from a single billet of 1025 Boron steel. The new irons maintain sleek aesthetics at address, with a thinner top line.
The scoring irons (seven iron through pitching wedge) are designed with solid 1025 Boron muscle design for an enhanced feel.
The MP-25s are available in three through pitching wedge in right and left-handed models. The steel shaft is a Project X 5.5, while graphite is a NEW Orochi. The grip is a multi-compound blue/black 60 Round.
There is no upcharge on steel shaft or custom grips for all Mizuno irons.
