Mizuno Pro has always been Mizuno's most forward-thinking series – cutting edge engineering concealed within precise playing profiles preferred by the game's elite players. A timeline of innovations - ultimately proven by their final chapter.
"The concept of Mizuno Pro can be misunderstood – we're not trying to design instant classics or works of art. Mizuno just hides technology incredibly well. This could be perceived as the ultimate betrayal of Mizuno Pro. But the true essence has always been to make history – not be stuck in it." Chris Voshall, Product Manager – Mizuno Golf
"From an engineering perspective – the Mizuno Pro 223 is probably the biggest step forward of all three new irons. The 221 and 225 are refined versions of their predecessors (MP-20 & MP-20 HMB) – but the 223 is a completely new concept. An incredibly compact players profile - smaller in every way than the iron it replaces. With Chromoly Forged and a hidden micro-slot from 4-7 iron." David Llewellyn – Director of R&D
MIZUNO PRO 221 - The Ultimate Muscleback.
Inspired by the iconic blades of Mizuno past – evolved to be more playable through incremental refinements in shape and weight placement. Bevelled for the appearance of a shorter face profile and narrower top line – without loss of mass in the upper blade. With dramatically more compact scoring irons than its predecessors. Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima, Japan, with a soft copper underlay for a uniquely satisfying Mizuno sensation at impact.
FORGED IN HIROSHIMA JAPAN: One-piece Grain Flow Forged HD from 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel at Mizuno's iconic facility in Hiroshima, Japan – where Mizuno irons have been produced since 1968.
SOFT COPPER UNDERLAY: A microlayer of copper beneath Nickel Chrome – for the purest, softest feel made famous in the legendary TN87. Reintroduced in 2019.
THICKER BEHIND IMPACT: Mass relocated from the heel area to muscle pad produces a slightly muted sound preferred in our 'blind' tour tests.
SHORTER & MORE COMPACT APPEARANCE: Shrewdly bevelled to deliver the appearance of a thinner top edge and shorter head length – without loss of playability.
CONTROLLED SHOT SHAPING: Mizuno's shortest CG / shaft axis is consistent from 3-PW, allowing controlled fades and draw feels right through the set.
NOTICEABLY SMALLER SHORT IRONS: Following feedback from the tour, 8-PW are dramatically reduced in size – with a heavily taped upper blade to control trajectory.
"We're obviously working in small increments on a Mizuno muscleback – we have to dig quite deep to get any negative feedback. The copper underlay and Grain Flow forging was such a great foundation on the MP-20. Players with a good eye will enjoy the subtle shape changes through the set – especially the 8, 9, PW." - David Llewellyn, Director of R&D
