Norcross, GA (September 28, 2009) - Mizuno, maker of the world's finest irons, introduces the Grain Flow Forged MX-300 irons, a perfect players spec iron with game improvement technologies to provide a level of forgiveness that every player can use. The MX-300 irons feature a traditional appearance with a minimal progressive offset, a compact head size and modest sole width to deliver the look for an aggressive player profile, while Y-Tune™ Pro technology provides enhanced feel and ball flight control, with added forgiveness.
Y-Tune Pro technology utilizes a specially configured cavity back design that provides the perfect amount of mass behind the hitting area for unmatched solid feel and workability, while simultaneously providing an enlarged sweet spot area for increased playability. The MX-300s feature a milled pocket cavity in the 3-7 irons which allows for the redistribution of 17 grams of discretionary weight low and deep to provide a high penetrating launch, while the scoring irons (8-GW) utilize a solid power bar design for maximum solid feel and pin attacking precision.
The MX-300s are Grain Flow Forged from 1025E "Pure Select" mild carbon steel for the ultimate in soft, solid, and consistent feel. The sole of the MX-300 is dual cambered with generous leading edge bevel and rolled trailing edge to minimize turf drag and reduce digging through impact, providing pure ball striking from any lie. In addition, the MX-300s feature a double nickel chrome plated finish for durability and modified U-grooves, designed to conform to the Condition of Competition 2010, for the ideal spin rate in all playing conditions.
"We realize that there are many players out there looking for some added forgiveness, but prefer a more traditional head shape and profile in the playing position." said Dick Lyons, Vice President and General Manager, Mizuno USA Golf Division. "The MX-300s are the perfect iron for those players. Our patented Grain Flow Forging process is going to provide feel you can't find anywhere else, while Y-Tune Pro Technology allows for enhanced workability and ball control with an expanded sweet area for increased playability. You just can't ask for anything more."
