Specifications: Grain flow forged heads from single block of 1025E mild carbon steel with milled pocket cavities in the 3- to 7-irons and a solid power bar in the short irons (8-PW). Dual cambered sole for clean turf interaction and new precision forged grooves meet R&A's new groove rules. Available in right-hand only, with DynaLite Gold XP steel shaft as standard.

Looks: While MP irons will always win a beauty contest, with their sleek profiles and shiny forged heads giving them plenty of shelf appeal, the MX-300 is also a nice-looking club. It will appeal to good ball strikers who like to look down on a reasonably slim profile and top line at address and prefer a clubhead that frames the ball neatly, rather than dominating it. The cosmetics are understated, with no flashy markings other than the muted black weight pockets in the cavity, which are not visible at address. The clubs are available with a satin double nickel chrome finish, plated for added durability.

Feel/performance: Featuring reduced offset and a more compact head, the Mizuno MX-300 gives proficient ball strikers who find the MP series just a little bit too tough to hit consistently out of the sweet spot, the chance to experience the joys of Mizuno forging. The MX-200, nice club though it is, robs better players of elements of workability and shot-making, but the MX-300 gives all that back and more.

Feel has been enhanced through a re-working of Mizuno's Y-tune Pro technology, which has been literally turned on its side to work vertically on the clubhead rather than horizontally, which claims to improve flight control and increase feel on slight miss-hits.

The transition of the set from cavity to power bar works well, although I imagine some players will give up the 3-iron in favour of one of Mizuno's new Fli-Hi hybrids.

The cambered sole cuts through the turf with ease and the clubhead delivers a pleasingly high trajectory, with plenty of forward momentum. The lofts are slightly stronger than standard, so you have to temper your excitement and anticipation of newly-found power, with the knowledge that you've got a few less degrees in your hands (the 6-iron has a loft of just 29 degrees). I found the feel exceptionally solid from within a few millimetres of the centre of the clubhead.

These clubs still punish the poor strike, but then if you're not a reasonably consistent ball-striker, you should perhaps try the M-200s or even MX-100s.

Overall it's an MX iron with the feel and playability of an MP iron and some built-in forgiveness. I can even imagine some of Mizuno's staff players having a sniff at these, while aspiring ball-strikers will also find themselves drawn to their good looks and overall performance. and that's what Mizuno is trying to achieve in this bridge-building exercise between their two iron brands.
