Are the Mizuno jpx800 irons similar to the mx100-200?

Hello,

 

I've seen some posts here that reference the mx100 and 200 and say

they are almost identical to the new Jpx800.

I've you have hit both clubs, please give me your thoughts.

 

Thanks

I have played with both the MX100 R300 steel (which I own) and the JPX800 R300 steel (for two 18 hole rounds). They are very similiar but I use the 7-9 for various open fairway pitch and run shots and I found the JPX 7-9 a little too "hot" for my taste. I did try the JPX800 Pro, and to me that is a very different club; more like an MP. The MX100's seem to feel 'softer' but the JPX800's seem to go a bit farther. A friend and fellow golfer just purchased a set of JPX800HD with graphite R300 shafts and they feel very nice and not so hot in the shorter irons.
As for the forged issue, I have previously owned both MP30 and MP60 irons. With age, I needed more forgiveness and found with the MX100 irons I have more control. I do use MPT 11 wedges and feel the forging does make a difference with scoring clubs.
I started playing at 17; I am 68 with a 17 handicap.

I wouldn't say that they are identical by any means but the JPX line replaced the MX line of game improvement clubs.
