Mizuno MP-CLK 2010 hybrid
By Dominic Pedler - May 2010

As we saw with last month's MP-630 drivers and titanium fairways, Mizuno continues to build its reputation in areas beyond its famous iron heritage.

It now has several generations of hybrids under its belt, the latest being the MP CLK targeted specifically to strong ball strikers who are increasingly embracing the hybrid concept at the highest level.

“Our tour players are now very open to the idea of long iron replacements – they just want to avoid anything with a tendency to hook – which most hybrids do,” says Andy Kikidas, Mizuno's Tour Operations Manager. “The new MP-CLK gives them the forgiveness and carry advantages of a hybrid, but sits better to their eye and gives them the option to work the ball in both directions.”

With its compact, 'tour-ready' square face and low profile, the MP CLK is one of the best looking of the 'wood-type' hybrids that we've seen this season. The drop down crown – in conjunction with the internal weighting strategy – keeps the sweet spot low on the face, reducing backspin and the chances of a ballooning flight.

The club also features the latest version of Mizuno's trademark Hot Face technology (in 1770 steel), configured to increase both carry and total distance relative to the company's previous CLK Fli- Hi model. Robot tests suggest increased ballspeeds of 1.2 mph and extra carry of 4.2 yards for stronger players able to benefit from the reduced spin rates.

Available in 17°, 20° and 23° lofts. £139.
