Mizuno has announced the latest generation of its Mizuno Pro Series of irons – The Mizuno Pro 221, 223, 225, and Fli-Hi.
Mizuno Pro has always been the brand’s most forward-thinking iron series – cutting-edge engineering concealed within precise playing profiles that are preferred by the game’s elite players.
Showcasing the recent feel orientated introductions of Grain Flow Forging HD and soft copper underlay, the new irons offer a blend of power and playability.
“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,” says Chris Voshall, product manager for Mizuno Golf.
The Mizuno Pro 221 muscleback design is inspired by iconic Mizuno blades of the past, while Pro 223 is described as an “elite players cavity iron”, and Pro 225 is described as a “hot metal blade” design.
“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 player’s profile – smaller in every way than the iron it replaces,” says David Llewellyn, director of R&D for Mizuno.
