No I would advise against it.

If you are hitting MP32 6 iron 155 with R300's then that is a good indication of a quite good medium strong hitter from about 4 to 9 handicap. I am off 6 and use MP32 with R300 and hit it about the same.

There is not a lot of difference between R300 and S300 these days, don't take any notice of "Custom fitting". these blokes are on commission to sell you the latest stuff and you can bet your bottom dollar that the results on the machine are totally different to when you get on the course. I would say don't believe the hype and if you are hitting it too high just spend 25 quid on a lesson from your pro to help you set up to play a lower flight instead of messing around with the shafts. I know that lessons for me made a lot more differences than the latest "must have" thing. That is why I am a loyal "Mizuno" aficionado because they try to keep the traditions and ethos of the game and produce "classic" style clubs

Stick with the 32's with the R300's. In my mind they are one of the best (If not best) irons Mizuno ever have made.

Best Regards

I would like to thank every one who showed interest in my post. I played all year with them, I didn't reshaft, they are great as is, don't plan on changing a thing as suggested by a few. I always check in the forum Pete, loyal to Mizuno. As I'm a leftie very happy to see there is a new driver for me, who knows maybe it will be replacing my mx700.

Hello to all - I just joined too. Interesting post as that is exactly what I did last summer. My mp32s came with heavy and too-stiff TT DG300S shafts which was making these beautiful irons play like crowbars in my hands (I have a medium swing speed). I had the 3-pw re-shafted with TT XP95s and haven't looked back! Much improved club head speed, higher flight and an extra 1-1.5 club in length. Much happier bunny now!

Just stumbled onto this old thread.  This year I played a set of MP32s reshafted with nippon V90s.  Not a bad match.  Probably one of their Modus shafts would be even better--a lower launching one.

Hi 

Just revisited this post.

My 32's are just the best irons ever. Like the 33's quite a large blade but the most beautiful classic shape with just a tiny bit of offset and the cut muscle in the back which gives them forgiveness without sacrificing playability.

Yes they do go a bit high when you go at it a bit with R300's but I would not suggest S300's because stiff shafts put a lot of doubt in your mind having to put a good swing on it every time.

If you want to lower the flight then get them set up a degree stronger and try the Rifle 5.5 option. it is "firm" right in between R300 and S300 and has a slightly higher kick point which will lower the flight.

Alternatively when into the wind you could just put the ball back in your stance and cut off the follow through with a "punch" swing! ha ha and save your self 300 quid.

Kindest regards dude 

Smitty :-)
