The Verdict: This is the epitome of a modern iron for better players. A new forging process tightens the grains of the carbon steel lower on the face to enhance feel. The result is a low-muscle-back design with an upper cavity throughout the set that performs and feels like a full muscle-back blade. The sole is slightly wider than a typical muscle-back iron, but the trailing and leading edges are shaped for blade-like performance through the turf. Plus, kudos to Mizuno for staying true to traditional lofts.
