Default Golf Guys any input on these clubs?

I was given a set of Mizuno MP32 irons, I've always enjoyed playing golf but not as serious as most so I have never invested in good clubs. These are blades not GI clubs. I figured they are going to be harder to hit, I just don't play enough to justify going and buying a set.

If they are pretty used then you can keep them and do your best, but if your over a 10 handicap or so then they are going to be harder to hit. If they are in good shape and you could get decent money for them you would be better of selling them and getting something more forgiving. Just my opinion

They are in great shape, grips are good heads are good. They are about 10 yrs old I guess and no idea what they would be worth.

You'd be lucky to get $150 for that set of irons. If you aren't a good golfer it will suck trying to hit those irons. Sell them and go buy a set of lightly used game improvers off Ebay.

You could probably get between $100-150 on ebay depending on wear on the faces and what shafts they have.

I would definitely suggest getting something other than blades. The game will be much more enjoyable the days you do play if you're able to hit some solid shots. Look at some used sets of Ping, Callaway, Taylormade from 2010+ and you should be able to pick up some good clubs for not too much $$.

Since you don't play a lot, use them, and go have a good time. It's not always about the score.

Well there is your answer. Keep em and go give it hell.

For me personally if I'm going to pay $40-$80 for a round of golf I am going for more than to drink beers and screw off. I can do that in my backyard for free.

If I paid that much I would too. It doesn't cost that much for a round here.

10-4. Even our crappy public courses around here are pushing $40 for a weekend round.

Man if I recall correctly the Mp32’s are older then that. I play with the same blades I played in HS 20 years ago. I have Maxfli blades and they still hit well. If you can play, use them. If not send em my way, I’d love em!

I wouldn't be surprised if you could sell those on eBay or at a golf shop, and pick up a set of newer cavity backs for almost even money. Mizuno and Titleist blades are beautiful, I wish I could hit them.

MP 32’s were 2004. You can get a $70 trade credit on Callaway or Callaway Preowned for them.

I say get after it!! It’s not going to hurt anything to play with them and if you learn how to hit them well you’ll be that much better. They are a good set of sticks. I’m not that old but I learned on blades and it’s not as bad as some think. The wayward shots might sting a little bit at least you know it was your fault. Some game improvement irons have so little feel you’ll likely never improve!!!

You say you're mainly out there for the beer and cigars, but wouldn't you rather have a better chance of hitting some good shots? My son just gave me some game improvement clubs that got me hitting irons like I could 20 years ago. Lot more fun.

Look at Buckley’s avatar. He is the that guy who always beats you 2 up at the end of the day.

^^^^Keep those, find the sweet spot and try to hit it a little more often. If you three putt, quit three putting. If you’re going to get something different, then get a 2 year old hot driver. I saw a 2017 Callaway Epic on EBay for $165 the other day.


What number irons do you have? 1-P, 3-P ??
What are the club faces like? Are the grooves in very good shape?
