What Mizuno say about the Pro Fli-Hi irons:

“A long iron replacement with a priority on ball speed – the Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi is designed to be played with a graphite shaft.

“Relieved of the constraints needed to flow through a complete set, the Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi has a longer head length, a little extra offset and a wider sole than the Mizuno Pro 225 long irons.

“With Mizuno’s first ever Maraging MAS1C face in an iron – for vastly increased ball speeds.

“Over the last couple of seasons, we’ve noticed that there are two types of Tour player – those who predominantly use their long iron hybrids into greens and others who use them to hit more fairways.

“With the Mizuno Pro 225 and Fli-Hi, as we’ve got options for both – or changing demands they might encounter at different types of courses.”

Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi Irons Design & Features

The Fli-His make history as the first ever Mizuno irons to be made from a Maraging MAS1C steel face, which has been traditional used in fairway woods only.

The use of the material in the driving irons has resulted in much more high ball speed face for added distance, making the Fli-Hi irons a real alternative to hybrids and rescues at the top end of your bag.

The MAS1C face is coupled with a bendable 431SS body and a 21g Tungsten weight to produce the perfect ball flight from a long iron.

Mizuno have also introduced Harmonic Impact Technology to reduce vibration levels and produce an ideal sound of the ball off the clubface.

Available in 2-iron, 3-iron or 4-iron, the Fli-His are fully blacked out using ION plating.
