Mizuno Golf- The Sound Of Feel
By Kickntrue on 4/9/09
Check out this video from Mizuno Golf that shows why their forged irons feel better than any other iron using sound waves. I'd explain further, but I'd screw it up- so I'll let the expert on the video give it to you. Enjoy!

for some reason, sound and feel just don't go together for me? i can only imagine that extra reverberation feeling great on a bladed ball.
can they make me one that makes jet engine sound effects when i hit it?
I want the club that makes the ball LOOK like it has a jet engine as its leaving.
Many "improvement" irons have shock - and thus sound - dampening inserts. I did choose Mizuno irons - with no preconceptions - because of crisp feedback, solid accutrate distance, and nifty workability.
At the same time I was walking out of the store with my new irons, another guy was as well. He was all excited because he had found the irons with which he claimed "could feel nothing!" He was so jazzed about switchable color-coded inserts, and some special cushy grips.
I learned a lot right there. I said nothing.
Of course I spent a good amount of time shopping around and hitting every iron "blindly" with half a dozen different salespeople over the course of two months.
In the end It was pretty close between Bridgestone J-33, Mizuno MP-60, and MP-57, and Callaway X-forged. I demo-ed all of those during full rounds - without Driver or 3-wood. In the end, my own technique made more difference than the clubs, but chose the set with the most good hits anyway - for positive mental effects. I love the MP-60 and now know that if I get tired of golf, I can make windchimes out of the clubs!
man, i want mizuno mp-60s so bad...
A weird story... I'm not made of money, but had some coming from an injury at work and subsequent 2 knee surgeries (now a total of 6 surgeries: 2 plates, 4 anchors, 15 screws, 2 ligament recostructions). Rugby now out of the question, I figured a good investment in golf (can you get injured in golf?) would be prudent.
I was able to take my time and try everything and not look at any prices - that's what I ended up with, with no pressure, brand loyalty, or anything.
Do you park in the Handicapped slot at the golf course parking lot?
No, only at the skydiving center.
That one injury only led to 2 knee surgeries. The rest have come over the years. Strangely, the injuries definitely help my golf:
1. I'm not off climbing Everest - a real possibility in my family
2. My left arm doesn't straighten all the way, so it's hard to yank my arms through.
3. Having played while injured many times (golf is what athletes play when injured), you develop sensetivities good and bad mechanics alike: Like with a tender right knee... It's comforting to know that all the weight shifts to the left during the swing. Or the time that car hit me and I had a bone chip in my left elbow... I had to pick the ball perfectly clean to avoid massive pain.
Hope that's enough material for you!
Oh, yer joke...
Yes... all of the "slots" are handicapped! Har, Har, Har!
