    Bending lofts on Mizuno MP18 MMC Fli-Hi

    Thinking about getting the lofts bent 3* strong on my Mizuno Mp18 MMC Fli-hi 3 and 4i (i.e. 3i goes from 19 deg to 16 deg, and 4i from 22 to 19). I've heard irons are typically only recommended to be bent 2 deg up or down, so curious as to (a) whether or not this would be feasible, and (b) whether there would be tangible affect on the lie and/or bounce, and how this might affect playability.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can easily go 4 degrees(lie angles) on forged irons however Mizuno recommends no more than 2* on theirs. (loft 2* lie 3*)

    You'd also create a dig sole (less bounce) https://www.mitchellgolf.com/golf-cl...and-fallacies/

    The 2-degree limit is only recommended when changing the lofts on irons due to the potential effect such bends will have on the sole angle of the club.


    If it were me I'd look for another alternative
