Chromoly A steel alloy containing chromium and molybdenum. It has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than many alloys. It has proven itself in the bike industry where lighter bikes need to have tremendous strength. It allows the face to be extremely thin and strong, while allowing the hosel to bend to create the perfect lie angle.
Boron steel An element next to carbon in the periodic table. It is added to steel because of its hardening qualities (reducing wear and tear) while being lighter than alternatives. Used extensively in the car industry as manufacturers design cars that are lighter but safer.
1025E mild carbon steel Carbon is added to the steel to create a softer more malleable alloy for use in the grain flow forging process. There are alloys with more carbon present but the purity of the Mizuno Forging Process along with the reduced trace elements in the steel, mean you get a really soft, buttery feel at impact.
We’ve always said that the selection of a set of irons requires an assessment and is a very personal decision making process. Whatever irons you choose, a fitting is a must. But the level of playability / workability; the appearance of the head and the feel of the golf ball off the face, are all very personal decisions we can help with.
