Mizuno MP-18 MMC Fli Hi #4 iron
« on: September 30, 2017, 05:23:36 PM »
My custom order MP-18 Fli Hi iron came in yesterday and so I brought it out for my round today.

First thing... this might be the best looking driving iron at address ,   Minimum offset and the top line is not all that thick, only as thick as your typical cavity irons.  Slightly longer from toe to heel which is expected.   With the 4 iron,  the thicker back side is hardly visible from the top which is nice. 
Not sure on the 2 & 3 Fli Hi's ... 

Performance:  I originally wanted a 24deg to directly replace my 4 iron ,  but the loft on the standard Fli Hi 4 is 22deg
Normal 4 iron I can carry 185 on a good day.  Looks like I am carrying around 200 yards with these Fli Hi's.  Probably due to the stronger loft and the multi-material construction with the hotter face material.   Trajectory is mid - high ... not high as a hybrid but higher than my normal 4 iron.   
Quite easy to launch for a 4 iron.  I love the feel of the Recoil 95s as well. 

Forgiveness:  Perhaps not as forgiving as a hybrid but it also does not hook.   

Feel:  Soft at impact and to my surprise,  pretty solid feeling.    Does not feel hollow at all. 

Overall happy with my purchase of a much needed forgiving 4 iron!
