Mizuno Pro 225 Irons Review.
Welcome to the Mizuno Pro 225 Irons.
For 2022, as brands are releasing their new technological-packed golf equipment in preparation for the coming golfing season( except you are in an environment that enjoys warm weather all year round), the Mizuno golf, which before now, was almost non-existence outside of the Japanese market, just released a set of 3 amazing Iron models, the Mizuno Pro.
And in this review, I intend to look closely at the Mizuno Pro 225 Irons to see if it’s worth throwing in your bag and if it’s a club that can help you experience more success on the Course.
Mizuno Pro 225 Irons Review – Introduction.
The Mizuno Pro 225 Irons are one of the 3 versions of the Pro Model by Mizuno golf.
While the Pro 221 and the Pro 223 irons are designed for more experienced players, the Pro 225 Irons, though cut the look of Tour irons, fit perfectly well with low to mid handicappers as they are the most forgiving of the 3 models in the Pro lineup.
Perhaps one of the most striking things about the Pro 225 irons, in my opinion, is the Distance Consistency.
Mizuno Pro 225 Irons Review – Basic Features/Technology.
The Mizuno Pro 225 Irons features a Hot metal blade design, representing the 2nd generation of the Hot metal blade design, behind the MP-20 HMC model.
The Pro 225 irons have a more compact head than the original and with a reverse CORTECH multi-thickness face for even quicker ball speeds, according to Mizuno.
Talking about the Original Hot Metal blade, it was an extension of the mizuna’s hybrid iron Technology into a full-bladed look set.
But with the new Pro 225 which is the 2n GEN, Mizuno pushes the profile and the size to look and perform more like the Tour iron, but with a special focus on ball speed.
As you progress through the different irons in the set, you will notice there are gradual changes in the makeup of the shape.
The 2-8 irons head features Grain Flow Forged 4135 Chromoly in the Face and Neck.
This combines with COR Forged Hollow Body 28.5g Tungsten weight in the 2-7 irons to produce a higher, more stable flight and enhanced ball speeds.
Going further down, the 9-Pw irons features 1025E pure select Mild Carbon Steel with a back weight to promote precision and more penetrating flight in the scoring irons.
The Mizuno is using the new Project X I0 as the standard stock steel, while the Lamkin ST Hybrid serves as the standard stock grip.
You have the option to request fora custom made.
MIZUNO PRO 225 Full Specification, from the #2 iron – to the #9 iron down to the PW-GW(Pitching Wedge & Gap Wedge). A total of 10 irons in the set.
|Club #||Loft °||Lie Angle||Offset (inch)||Length (inch)|
There are not many differences in terms of the look of the Pro 225 irons and the rest of the Mizuno Pro 2022 versions.
At address, they set out very clean and nice, with a little bit of offset, and a slightly thicker topline than a traditional blade for more ball speed.
With a fast and flexible forged 4135 Chromoly hollow body construction (in the 2–8-iron) that looks like a direct replacement of the MP-20 HMBs, the Pro 225 irons are designed for faster ball speed and more playability, especially in the 2-7 irons.
Compare to the previous model, the MP-20, the Pro 225 has a smaller head(shrunk, if I may say).
Looking at how the Pro 225 irons perform, we’ll look at the overall performance including the level of forgiveness, Feel and Sound as well as Speed and Distance.
The Pro 225 irons are pretty forgiving on their own, even much more forgiving when compared to her sister models, the Pro 221 and 223, both of which are less forgiving and designed for more experienced players.
However, When compared to similar models from other brands, the Mizuno Pro 225 irons are a far distance when talking about forgiving Clubs.
Feel & Sound.
With the Grain Flow Forged 4135 Chromoly featured in the Pro 225 irons, you get a very soft, solid, and consistent feel and great sound at impact.
Together with the Hollo body COR construction, provides a high MOI and a solid feel at impact.
Speed & Distance.
One of the most impressive areas the Pro 225 irons perform most is the area of distance and consistency.
As a performance Club, the Mizuno Pro 225 Irons are designed to give players more Distance.
What Others Are Saying About The Mizuno Pro 225 Irons.
As expected, even though the Irons are pretty new, there are a few reactions coming from Mizuno lovers and golf enthusiasts.
Most people seem to be impressed with the aesthetic of the Pro 225; Classic and shrunken head from the previous Hot meta blad-the MP-20.
Distance consistency in the Pro 225 irons and the fastball speeds, are some of the few features getting massive commendation from most people.
Overall, the feedback from the golfing community on the Pro 225 Irons is so far, very impressively positive.
- Distance is pretty impressive and Consistent.
- More Forgiving than the two other Pro versions.
- Visually appealing both in the bag and at address.
- Looks like left-handed golfers are excluded here.
- Not much workability.
- Few people might fawn at the Price tag especially those on a tight budget.
Who Can Play The Mizuno Pro 225 Irons?
So, the Pro 225 Irons, unlike the other 2 models, are designed to accommodate a wide range of golfers, from low to mid handicappers, to even Tour players.
In my opinion, it is not a perfect Club for the beginner but nothing really stops them from trying, after all, it offers forgives and offset to prevent slices.
