Titleist T150 Vs Mizuno Pro 243 Irons

Titleist T150 Vs Mizuno Pro 243 Irons

With identical loft profiles, I was very eager to see which of these irons would perform better.

Titleist T150 Irons Overview

“The T150’s feature tungsten weighting, CNC milled faced and forged construction.”

The toplines and soles are moderate which yields a good balance between an inviting look and tour-grade aesthetics.

And I liked the launch.

I was getting 13.8° launch angles out of the 7-iron in this set and a bit more ball speed than the Mizuno Pro 243’s as well.

The result was solid stopping power. The T150’s retail for about $1,400.

Mizuno Pro 243 Irons Overview

Mizuno Pro 243 Irons

“The 243’s feature chromoly face construction, soft copper underlay and a microslot channel.”

The profile of the 243’s is similar to the T150’s: moderate soles and toplines and just a touch of offset.

But my average 7-iron launch angle was 12.5° – great for distance, not so much for soft landings.

However, I was able to work the Pro 243s side-to-side much more deftly than with the T150s.

The Mizuno Pro 243s typically sell for $1,400.

“If you have trouble flighting the ball, the Titleist T150s are better for you. But if you need more workability and distance, the Mizuno Pro 243’s perform better.”

Titleist T150 – First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the T150 was the classy, refined look that we are used to in Titleist irons.

The blades have a compact blade length and minimal offset but the wider soles offer more confidence at address.

The refined muscle channel is also immediately noticeable, adding to the power and distance of the irons.

You may not notice the CNC Precision milled grooves or the Tungsten weighting in the toe and the heel but you will definitely notice and get to know them as your strike your irons.

Overall, you are going to get the tour refined shaping with an extra bit of power and forgiveness, perfect for those perhaps trying out forged players irons for the first time.

Mizuno Pro 243 Irons – First Impressions

Mizuno Pro 243 Irons2

“The Mizuno Pro 243 irons follow the tradition of the Mizuno Pro 223 irons in the sense that they are both tour cavity irons that meet the demands of better players.”

The Mizuno Pro 243 irons feel immediately satisfying whether you’re teeing off on an executive course with one of the long irons or chipping in with a short iron.

They are single-piece grain flow forged in Mizuno’s legendary Hiroshima facility and feature premium appointments.

For instance, all of the irons in the set feature a copper underlay to enhance the soft feel of the mild carbon steel and chromoly materials. This allows for immediate response at impact.

You will know exactly where you made contact with the ball based on feel alone.

To further fine-tune the precise feel of these irons, Mizuno used what they call Harmonic Impact Technology.

This feature was included to mimic the feel and response of a true muscle back blade.

The Mizuno Pro 243 irons also feature a wraparound sole grind. This makes the soles appear visually smaller while providing significant relief through the turf.

Adding to the smooth turf interaction is an increase in bounce angles. There is a 1 degree increase in long irons and a 2 degree increase in the short irons.

Visually, the Mizuno Pro 243 irons look stunning. They have undergone a full satin brush which helps reduce glare and imparts a monochromatic aesthetic.

The top lines are on the thin side and the soles are well-hidden. All of this adds up to a cavity back iron that looks incredibly sleek and workable.

“The Mizuno Pro 243 irons are certainly for players who want a premium feel and the ability to work the ball from any lie.”

Who Are The T150 Irons For

The T150 are for low handicappers who want more distance and forgiveness than what is on offer with the T100’s.

Similar in blade length but with thicker soles and enhanced tungsten weighting offers tour like performance with more distance for slower swing speeds and more forgiveness for the top players who lack consistency.

The one thing that may put golfers off is the higher price point of the irons in today’s game.

Who Are the Mizuno Pro 243 Irons  for?

Mizuno Pro 243 Irons5

The Mizuno Pro 243 irons will be best for your single-digit handicappers and scratch players. They offer phenomenal workability and feel to match.

The cavity back design does provide some semblance of forgiveness; but you still have to be an accurate striker to get the best use out of these irons.

The Mizuno Pro Family of Irons

“Included in the latest iteration of Mizuno’s Pro series are the Pro 245 and Pro 241 models.”

The Mizuno Pro 241 irons are the true blades in the family. They are single-piece forged from 1025 carbon steel and feature a muscle back design.

They also feature progressively tapered blades – wider in the long irons and narrower in the short irons.

The Mizuno Pro 245 irons feature a hollow body design and are also grain flow forged from 1025E carbon steel.

These are most likely the most forgiving irons in the new Mizuno Pro series as they tend to play the longest of the three sets.

The Pro 245’s also feature a cap of 17-4 stainless steel behind the hitting zone to push ball speeds.
