PostSubject: Mizuno Irons   Thu Aug 15, 2013 4:38 pm

I am considering to get a set of JPX825 Forged, but guess that I can only get them in Golf House.

A bit worried, after hearing all the negative experiences from Golf House in this forum.

I understand they do Mizuno fitting, are they any good???

Another option is that I buy a 2nd-hand or cheaper or older model, bringing to other fitter to get the irons re-shaft??? Can tell where I can go for this fitting and re-shafting, thanks!!!

Just curious..is it true that mizuno irons wear out faster than other forged irons (e.g. browning of club face due to wear from ball hitting, wearing out of sole from turf interaction)?

 Not from my experience.

Nope. Never heard that one before. I've owned several Mizuno sets and they are all pretty sturdy. Of course, do take care of your clubs (whether they are Mizuno or otherwise). The more care you provide, the longer they'll last Smile

 You can consider buying from Golf Simply @ FESC 2nd Level ... Their prices for Mizuno Irons are pretty good ... Prices are very negotiable especially if it is cash transaction. I believe they might still have the JPX825 irons for sales.

This is a set in pretty good condition. He's my kaki and I've seen it myself. Probably a steal at his price considering its with kbs tour shafts too.

The JPX Pro is a different set which may be harder to use.
But nonetheless, you have to try to know

I think the mp53/54 irons are about the same forgiveness as the jpx forged. Give those a try.

I disagree. I think the JPX 800 Pro and JPX 825 Pro irons are more forgiving than the 53/58s. But the 52/58s allow more workability with the ball.

Mp53 is a player's iron while jpx825 is game improvement

Not much difference there I'd say. => don't try don't know! jpx forged -> mp 53 is like a half step up. Due to a slight tweak, weighting and offset if u notice is about the same as the jpx forged

Joshyo, you must have a consistent swing, always hitting on the sweet spot. Doesn't matter whether player's or game improvement irons, great shot feeling always. Therefore not much difference between the 2 sets. Lol.
