Mizuno MP18 Irons – MP-18, SC and MMC Review
Mizuno MP18 Irons – MP-18, SC and MMC Review

G’day Guys, Alex Etches from GolfBox. I don’t to review the Mizuno MP-18 Irons because… They’re Disgusting Said no one…ever! Welcome to heaven Right, let’s just get straight to this. I have the MP-18 Blade I also have the Split Cavity; and I also have the Multi Compound head So that’s the stages of 3. We start at the blade – traditional, limited offset, thin topline all about workability targeting the ball strikers. Pffft! Goodbye… Just kidding, no chance am I letting go of this Then we go to the split cavity, which sits in the middle of the three, forgiveness and workability; slightly thicker; slightly bigger in head size Then we go to the multi compound
has more technology. Tungsten weighting in the toe Bit more offset more forgiveness.
let’s crack on MP 18 blade first let’s give it a wallop.. Come on then
bread Knife – let’s do this. Pretty scary however, I will say this, it’s not as blade
looking as you might think you look at the back of the iron and you
think oh no the actual fact it doesn’t look too bad and it feels as good I need to get lucky with these strikes
otherwise I will be visiting Indiana Jones in the rocks. 195 meters, these are
six irons, all three of the heads so we’re going to be playing with a stock
shaft of each one. This is a dynamic gold s-300. it’s quite comforting actually
that top-line it’s not like a say, sharp and you’re going to cut your hands on it.
It looks more like, I’d probably say a split cavity. but it is the blade, which is, yeah
it is the blade. that was hit so I didn’t I didn’t know whether to take this out
to dinner or review it. it was pretty close. 201 meters. Erm, out the middle it
feels like chocolate unbelievable smooth; I feel confident with it – which in
all fairness I shouldn’t, but. That was low out of the face but the face was
pretty square so we haven’t got too much shape which is great.
Wow, those results won’t look too bad split cavity so this is really the
sensible option for me. Sits in the middle of the three we get workability
we get that a little bit more forgiveness. Still looks fantastic
straight away it’s slightly longer you can tell in the head it’s going to give
you a bit more confidence over the ball we have the standard KBS tour 120 stiff
it doesn’t look that much different to be honest. Can I say that, am I allowed to say that. It looks very similar slightly thicker top-line maybe a margin
more offset. Let’s see how it goes I suppose. Feels
lighter, but it feels good. So that’s gone two hundred and two meters. Slightly longer than
the blade which you would expect. The strike feels a bit crisper, so I think
I’m getting a bit more than the technology boost if I don’t hit the
middle. That swing if that had have been the blade we’d be in a bit of
bother, I reckon. but I think the forgiveness has helped me out.
198, pretty consistent. Not too far left that could be hitting the greenside
bunker I suppose but yeah we’ll take it it masks a little bit the strikes, so
if you’re not getting it the forgiveness is there to make you think
you’ve still got it. if that makes any sense. the feel for me is losing a little
bit from the blade, the blade’s like “you hit that really bad” where this is
like “It’s okay, we’ll do it together” See what I mean?. So we’ve left the multi
compound ‘big dawg’ It’s not called that I added that in, at the end. so, the end
of the scale; more forgiving, giving it more ball speed slightly less workable
but it is still in the players category I would say, MP obviously. Multi compound
so it actually states as MMC, I don’t know where my finger was going. MMC,
so multi compounds we’ve got titanium behind the face we’ve got tungsten in
the toe – obviously moving that CG more towards the middle for optimum results.
okay, I’m excited this is the NS pro modus three shaft and I’m going to give
this a hit now we’re here, straight away, the heads
longer I feel like I’m going to hit this in the relatively right direction. Ha, Funny!
oh wow that feels quick back and it is pretty long 205 meters on the carry. Again masks the strike a little bit I didn’t
think that was fantastic no, it’s fallen shorter. we didn’t get
to feel like you would the blade if you did get it wrong yes that sounds so good
Crikey! oh and it’s long. I’ve just absolutely belted that 207 meters. yeah,
Wow. Results! this is why we’re here the results of the review and it’s
everything you would expect so we’ll start with the distances. Blade with 198
meters carry on average, split cavity was 199, Multi compound 202. so we’ve got
that gradual increase as you would expect from the blade to the bigger
cavity. spin, so we’ll go side spin 372 right to left with the blade; 382 right
to left with the split cavity and Multi compound 532 right to left. So, the bigger
more forgiving I got more side spin from proving that all these irons are workable,
you can shape any of them and it really does boil down to strike. overall doesn’t
matter what head you choose and back spin at 6583 blade, 6599
split cavity 6427 Multi compound very much the same, all workable
will all hold the green – which is what we need. I’m blown away, so I would order
these as a split cavity in the longer and then the blades in the shorter.
usually with that you’d have a problem of the split cavity having a stronger
lofts, the blade’s having the weaker lofts and then you get to the middling
you’d have a big drop-off but Mizuno can actually if you order this as a split
set they can make sure the gap is correct they will alter it, so
it’s completely smooth progressive through the set and also the offsets so
usually split cavity have a greater offset compared to the blade this is now
progressive as well so you won’t see a big straight straight straight straight
blade split cavity, split cavity, split cavity, offset which is fantastic
what more can I say blown away fantastic irons thank you as
always for watching if you need any more help give us a call on 1-800 six five
two two double one obviously give us a like and comment below. love hearing what you’ve got to say subscribe thank you very much

    Fantastic review.Very refreshing.

  16. MarcusAurelius13 says:

    Alex can you make Nerd editions where you get into shafts, spin rates, possibly other irons instead of just 7? Love the simple straight forward approach too.

  17. Richard Marsh says:

    I'd go mcc 3i with a hybrid shaft 456i in the sc and blades to wedge ๐Ÿง€ I can but dream look unreal

  18. Jeremiah McKee says:

    12 seconds in…..liked.

  19. James Smith says:

    Played mizuno blades for long time, but I prefer the thin top line of the mb716.

  20. Adam Flynn says:

    Golf porn…especially for die hard mizuno fans like me (currently have 15-not in comps- mizunos in my mizuno bag)….sadly my blade days are behind me and i think the multi compound will be heading into a bag near me soon.

  21. Concerned Cognos Admin says:

    Is the MMC still playable aroud HCP 16-20 ?

  22. Adam Shields says:

    My god I want one of those. Im thinking the MMC or SC. Im either hoping to get these or the MP16s when they come out in September

    Please do some course vlogs! I'd love to see you work around the course. You're a hell of a talent, but it's nice to see us all face our demons on the links ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. Peter Gregg says:

    Are they making these for the lefties? Would love to get my hands on these in the split cavity

  26. gordon m says:

    Thanks for the review. So where's a good place for a split and how do you make that choice? My current set (very old Ben Sayers Access) are half-blades 2-7 and full blades 8+ Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Luke Pedrana says:

    Not sure what I like more, the irons or how far you hit your 6 iron ๐Ÿค”

  28. NEIL CLARKE says:

    It's a fishing holiday Alex! See gowildperu However, there is a golf course on the banks of the Amazon in Brazil. They give you a box of tools; if you go, say left.. then they give you a machete to clear a path back to the fairway. Love the review as always. Too far to Brazilian golf course unfortunately!

  29. Fieldy says:

    219 with a 6 iron blade ?

  30. Matt Leader says:

    โ€œItโ€™s ok..weโ€™ll do it togetherโ€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  35. Nick says:

    i believe the blades and SCs are standard mizuno lofts so will seamlessly work in a combo set but the MC are stronger tho mizuno can bend them to fit

  36. James Harrity says:

    Crushing it as usual broseph

  37. mark boundy says:

    Absolutely love the look of these. Massive mizuno fan. Very very tempted. Pricey I bet though. Great review mate

  38. simmi352 says:

    gees what are they feeding this guy?

  39. Alex Etches - GolfBox TV says:

    Thanks for the comments guys. Overwhelmed with the support and performance of this review. Please continue to share on all social media platforms and tweet to me @tigerironsalex

    For those of you that have asked, I've ordered 4-6 in the SC and 7-PW in the Blade. I can't wait!

  40. Rudy Frank says:

    Why are you whispering? I want to watch but I just can't with how low you're speaking. You sound like you don't want to wake someone up.

  41. Aaron says:

    Yep I'm buying these! Just wish golfbox adjusted lie angles and length

  42. gtrraider84 says:

    Jealous of your distance with a 6. Great job on your review as well

  43. Stephen Harris says:

    mmc looks nice to me.more interesting look about them.

  44. Matt Huynh says:

    you have your simulator set to "Driver." Doesn't that make a difference? Or do you just rip your 6 irons 220 yards all the time? haha.

  45. Mike L says:


  46. nova68nova says:

    My new favorite golf club review channel.

  47. cobra1995xx says:

    I remember last time I was tired and hit it 225..!! It was this past Saturday and it was with a 3 wood not a 6 iron hahaha.. they were smashed!! Great stuff and great looking irons

  48. Corey Sayers says:

    Great review!

  49. ThePhanin says:

    Mate, all u need is 3 clubs in ur bag, a putter, wedge and a 6iron!

  50. Rob C says:

    First time watching one of your reviews. It won't be the last, just subscribed. Very informative and done without taking yourself too seriously. Keep up the good work. And oh, those irons….though!!!

  51. T W says:

    Had to clean the drool off my keyboard before typing this… Awesome review and just subscribed!

  52. plusfour1 says:

    Before you run out and buy a set, there's a 4th iron, the MP-18 MMC Fli Hi which is more forgiving than the MMC and comes only in 2-6 iron in the US and 2-5 in the UK

  53. ReneFloresVlogs says:

    How much would you sell the muscle backs for? Iโ€™m serious, i really want to try it!

  54. Sean Mac says:

    Are the MMC's grain flow forged?

  55. Chuck Cv says:

    I game the 900T and demoed the 18, SC and MMC side by side; the 900T are a keeper. Found that the feel of the 900T was similar to the 18 but the 900T was almost a full club longer. Found that the 900T was better performing vs the SC.

  56. Steven Adamson says:

    Great review! You got a fan in me! And sweet Jesus you are long! You must be tall or something

  57. Brian Han says:

    i'm speechless. you're a monster mate… 210+ yard with a 6 iron???

  58. Craig Dalgarno says:

    Just bought some Mizuno MP-18 SC from Myles at East Perth. Thanks for your review Alex. They are cracking clubs! May have got an epic sub zero while i was at it….I'm in love

  59. Keegan6 says:

    Finally had a chance to hit Mizuno last week! Fell in love with the feel, sound and work-ability. Plus, the most beautiful irons on the market! Loved your review of these irons!

  60. matthewua1 says:

    Great review keep them coming. Aloha from Hawaii.

  61. Wolf-Hybrid Den LIVE says:

    I said it, worst irons I have ever hit are the modern Mizuno range.

  62. Emile Cochet says:

    Recently started watching your channel and subscribed. ย Great videos!! ย Very fun and informative. ย I put the MP-18s in my bag a couple months back; 3-5 in the SC and 6-PW in the blade…..unbelievable clubs. ย I'm going to go watch some more of your videos now. ย Cheers.

  63. Saul Carrera says:

    Alex great review on the MP18, this clubs are beautiful and gorgeous.. I like your honesty and how you reviewed all three clubs, I'm looking into purchasing a set this summer .. as I play the m4 .. thank again keep up the good work

  64. Travis smith says:

    I have the jpx 900 forged cause they told me "its ok we can do this together" hahaha so much truth there

  65. Chuangyee Bock says:

    Can you do another video on how to hit a 6 iron 200m?

  66. ์•ˆ์ง€ํ™˜ says:

    omg… 30 degrees true blade #6 iron โ˜ž 200 meters carry ::;;;;; what a shot ~ !!!

  67. Louis Pounds says:

    Hi Alex, loved this video, watched several times…can you review the contract forged tech black? Would love to see you it those…

  68. icu Rad says:

    I just want to thank u Alex for this review, You answered all the questions i had in regards to the Sc v MMC irons. looked at alot of other reviews but still left me asking Questions.
    I have the old R7 TM and my playing partner has Mizuno 200'
    He found a set of mp18 MMC used for sale and I went to have a hit.
    Boy , compared to my old R7' they felt like Chocolate to me having never hit Mizz's before.
    I just tried the TM790, nice, feel. much better than my R7' but the MP18 MMC smooth, (WOW) much, much better feel.
    I was very interested in them but wanted to know if the SC would be better for me being a 10HC (if my putting is on song I'm a 6HC) so I'm going to try them tomorrow and choose from there.

  69. Shea Meade says:

    Very good review pal I just ordered 4-pw Mizuno mp18 mmc now you talked about split set, I'm like awww should I have done this, but I ain't even in same past code as your distances, I'm around 180 – 186 yards for my 6i.. 213 !! WOW ! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  70. Amรฉdรฉรฉ Maingard says:

    what simulator launch monitor you guys using?

  71. Keith Finley says:

    What's in your bag (14 clubs)?

  72. nanje gowda says:

    MP 18 SC.. Amazing clubs.. Already I ordered it..

  73. Henry Land says:

    Would the MMC be crazy for a 1hc? I play MP33โ€™s but want something I can swing and hit easily. Going used route and can only find MMCโ€™s in my shaft (Modus 120)

  74. Scott Monasmith says:

    I don't comment very often but that review was fantastic. Informative and entertaining. LMAO

  75. Steven Halfhead says:

    I play off around 18, Iโ€™m a good ball striker but I do have a natural high flight ( hence getting rid of the game improvements irons) which clubs should I look at getting the SC or the MMC ? I leaning towards the MMC only because they are more forgiving and Iโ€™m not looking to work my shots just yet?

  76. constantine Eliadis says:

    Hey there… moat entertaining video … all clubs today in my view are identlical … when your flush them … its the rest of the clubface performance (where we mortals spend more of our time) that dictates the outcome of our shots … what do you think of the JPX series by comparison which seems kinda similar … the 919Tour looks alot like the 18SCs in design (finishes aside). Is a 12HC player likely to benefit more from one than the other in your view.? I have MP-30s …. think I need a more forgiving club but has to be forged … that's why I play … the chocolate …cheers

  77. Roy Farley says:

    Damn that was good. I might have to get a split set between the SC and the MMC. The price should be dropping as time goes by.

  78. el060248 says:

    Someone has probably said this already but the SC's and the blades have the same lofts anyway. Only the MMC's are 2 degrees stronger.

  79. Walter Gumiela says:

    How about MMC 4-7 & 8 – PW as a blade?
