Mizuno Pro 241 Irons Review – Are They Blades, Forgiving, What Handicap?
“The Mizuno Pro 241 irons replace the 221’s and represent some pretty nice improvements.”
The Mizuno Pro 241 irons are the latest offerings from the storied Japanese manufacturer.
Present in them are some of the features we have come to expect from Mizuno including grain flow forging.
But who are these irons for and do they deserve a spot in your bag? Read on to find out.
What Handicap Are The Mizuno Pro 241 Irons for?
“If you can center these irons, they are so so fun to hit.”
But that’s a big qualifier. Can you center the Mizuno Pro 241s?
They have short blade lengths and a compact overall profile – even as, in true Mizuno fashion, the profile is rounded out a bit more compared to other blades like the Titleist 620 MBs.
So you have to be accurate. For that reason I would say the Mizuno Pro 241s are for scratch and single-digit handicappers.
Are the Mizuno Pro 241 Irons Blades?
The Mizuno Pro 241s are some of the nicest representations of bladed irons currently on the market.
They have a clean muscle back design, thin topline and minimal offset.
Are the Mizuno Pro 241 Irons Forged?
“The Mizuno Pro 241 irons undergo the classic grain flow forging process that Mizuno has become known for.”
These irons are forged from a single piece of 1025E select carbon steel in Mizuno’s exclusive facility in Hiroshima, Japan.
Are the Mizuno Pro 241 Irons Forgiving?
“One feature we have to take note of here is the increased bounce angle.”
The Mizuno Pro 241s feature a bounce angle increased by one degree in the long irons and two degrees in the scoring irons.
I was noticing that I was taking much smaller divots during testing – whether with the wedges or the long irons.
Even when I bottomed-out too early, I wasn’t digging very much. So in terms of turf interaction, the Mizuno Pro 241s are surprisingly forgiving.
