Mizuno Pro 245 Irons Review – Are They Good for High & Mid Handicappers?
“The Mizuno Pro 245 irons offer distance in a package that looks incredibly sleek.”
Most people associate Mizuno irons with player’s performance blades.
But that might change dramatically when people start playing the Mizuno Pro 245 irons.
The Mizuno Pro 245’s bring the distance in a way that few Mizuno irons have done before.
But is distance all these irons have to offer?
And what handicap are the Mizuno Pro 245 irons for? Find out in the following review.
What Handicap Are the Mizuno Pro 245 Irons for?
“The Mizuno Pro 245 irons would be ideal for mid handicappers who need more stopping power from a distance iron.”
The problem with most distance irons is that they will simply roll past the green. That’s because the recent trend among distance irons is low spin.
Low spin is great if you can loft your ball to the clouds; but for mid handicappers with a mid trajectory, low spin can be a problem.
The Mizuno Pro 245 irons produced nice spin numbers which increased stopping power.
So they are great for mid handicappers who want help not only with distance; but with trajectory and stopping power as well.
Are the Mizuno Pro 245’s Forged?
“You better believe it.”
Like any good Mizuno irons, the Mizuno Pro 245s are grain flow forged at the Mizuno plant in HIroshima.
Irons 2-8 are forged from 4135 chromoly while irons 9-GW are forged from 1025E carbon steel.
Are the Mizuno Pro 245 Irons Forgiving?
“Moderately. The hollow body design definitely makes for easy distance and the suspended tungsten weighting makes more of the face viable.”
But the overall profile of the Mizuno Pro 245 irons is compact – similar to the Pro 225s. So you still have to be fairly accurate with your swing path.
But the hollow-body construction along with a suspended internal weight (which allows for a “free-floating” face) do help you squeeze more distance out of your toe-side mis-hits and thin shots.
