My 2 week old mp53's ain't rusting but I did hit a stone in one of the waste area's which left me with a hugh dent on the botton of my six iron(I removed the visable stones, sadly this one was underground :().

This seems to be a continuing theme, particularly with the new models. I have just gone through a very wet and cold week here, I have irons covers and my clubs are always in the boot of my car unless I take them out for cleaning. No signs of rust, even on my wedges which are starting to show signs of wear.

It's also worth giving them a gentle rub with the standard WD40. Remember someone else doing the same and the spots went.

From the factory - translated quickly.

"if no moisture / dampness exists, no rusting can develop. With grit damage to the face, rust can show up - if not completely dry.

If you pierce the surface of the chrome, even tiny pin points can show rusting - in a short time.

To get rid of the rust, a pan scourer will do the job. Avoid brillo pads - just the sponge type.

Then, dry and wipe over with WD40 or, even veg oil to keep the moisture away"

I know it's not pleasant to have rust spots on irons that you have only had a few weeks, but to be fair to Mizuno every set comes with a small leaflet that does explain about club maintenance. Many of us are guilty of throwing this away, I know I have in the past. I'll quote what it says;

"Inappropriate care of this product may lead to the development of rust spots and blemishes-particularly with grain flow forged irons. To best maintain the appearance of Mizuno woods and irons;

-Remove headcovers after playing (irons only)
-Keep the cavity and grooves dry with a soft towel
-Apply a thin coat of lubricant oil to the club heads
-Avoid storage in extreme temperatures

Mizuno equipment is guaranteed for one year from date of purchase against manufacturing faults. The guarantee does not cover damage caused by misuse,accidents or normal wear and tear"

So there you go. I apologies to any forum members who already do this sort of maintenance regurlarly. Common sense really.

Clubs are back at Mizuno now for inspection. Will feedback on their response.

Villiers - ive had the clubs for one week and the rust spots had appeared which im sure you will agree is not acceptable.

MPX - Any reason why my original subject heading has been changed to this new one??

I agree in your case I'd be ***** off as well. The maintenance post was not to you personally but just letting all know really, just to stop guys panicking who have had clubs a lot longer.

There's another thread going on about rusting JPX Pro's - I enclose my post on that below.

The rust spots I got on my MX300's and MPT-10's just appeared out of nowhere - non one day, there the next after a wet round of golf.

I do heartily recommed Bar Keepers Friend for cleaning off the rust spots if they do appear and - as said by others - the occasional squirt of Wd40 (but always wipe off afterwards!).
---------------------------------------------------------------------

I started getting minor rust spots on my previous set of MX-300's (very similar to JPX Pro) and MPT-10 wedges.

I too used headcovers (to reduce clatter), but always removed them after playing and wiped/dried before storage. Never put the covers back on until leaving to play next time. Still got rust spots.

I cleaned my heads up with Bar Keepers Friend to remove 99% of the visible rust (it was minor to start with) and then stopped using headcovers. No more rusting!

DO NOT USE HEADCOVERS FULL STOP is my advice.
