With an 18 H/C, I reluctantly bought a set of these on the recommendations of others. I had them adjusted, as EVERY golfer should do when buying new clubs, and hit the course next day. Boy, they are something else. The legendary Mizuno fluid feel and sound is unique. No other make can get close to simulating the experience of these forged irons.
After all the years of playing with TM, Callaway, Wilson and Cobra (game improvement and players irons), I just wish I'd gone with my instincts much earlier and bought Mizuno.
The 53's are head and shoulders above the competition in their class and certainly deserve their already outstanding reputation.
Can't recommend highly enough!
