Mizuno JPX-825, JPX-800

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Mizuno JPX-825 or JPX-800… which ones are better?? Took me 3 months this summer to decide of my new iron set. I was finally ready to buy the 800 but then the 825 came out; Are they better? Having lost all that time and being really ready for new irons, I sincerely don’t mind the 100$ difference between the 825 and 800, just want to buy the best out of these two iron sets.

 

Thanks for your feedbacks!

I'm not sure about which one plays better but I know that the 825 sure as hell looks alot better.

IMO, the feel of the 825s is a bit better than the 800s but youre not talking a huge difference.

FWIW I bought a 'slightly used' set of the 800s from a guy who claimed he loved them.  He was selling his to make room for the 825s - go figure.  I've enjoyed the 800s and recommend them.  I swung a demo 825 and thought that they looked markedly cooler too, but didn't notice any difference from using in a bay for 15 minutes.

i got the 800s from 2nd swing for $499 used and then i traded in some clubs to get it even lower. the non-forged used clubs don't really look too used unless they've been abused, so it wasn't a big deal not to get them new.

 

personally i don't think the 825s look better than the 800s, but that's personal opinion. either way i'm sure the 825s perform just as good, if not better, than the 800s and i hit 7 different sets of irons before deciding that the 800s felt the best by far.

I can't speak to the 800's, but I just bought a set of the 825's.  I had them customized to fit me and I can say they are some amazing clubs.  By far the best set of irons I have ever hit and I have hit darned near all of them.  I also have a set of MP-58's  which is a forged club and to me the 825's have a better feel.  I don't think anyone could go wrong with a set.

I currently own a set of MX-23's and I am interested in the JPX 825's.  I am really happy with my MX-23's, but it's time as they are almost worn out. Feedback?

post #9 of 18

That is exactly where I stand as well having the MX 23's and ready for the JPX 825 Pros's!!!!  Really interested in how they will differ...the Mizuno rep stated that I would really notice the difference of the square groves, playability & distance of the 825's ?  They also seemed exceptionally lighter than my MX 23's with Dynalite R300 shafts which would take some getting use to I would imagine?

 

Any thoughts appreciated,

For you guys who have older Mizzys, you will notice a big difference simply because shaft technology has come such a long way, the clubs are lighter, the shafts are longer and the lofts are stronger.

Wow I don't feel so old now lol. Hopefully when I get to 46 I will be a pro and able to become a teacher of the worlds most amazing sport *thumbs up*

 

Oh off topic but how are you getting on with the JPX 825's? I am getting either those of the JPX EZ after xmas.

I like the JPX825's alot.    Pretty forgiving & as long as most anything I've played recently.     They do sound better than most GI clubs though for some reason - not quite the same crack as a purely struck forged club, but surprisingly close.     I've seen some great online deals on JPX800's out there now for $399 (budgetgolf.com) - I would have went that route if they were available at basically half what I paid for the JPX825's.

Have you tried the 800s? I was going to get these because they are really cheap on ebay but the golf shop near me doesn't do a custom fit on that club. They only do 825 and EZ. Are the 825's forged or cast? I would prefer Forged because its what I am using now but i'm gonna give both a wack when I have the money. Nothing worse than falling in love with a club and not being able to buy it.

Aren't the 800 muscle back and the 825 cavity?

The JPX-800's are the game improvement version a year older than the JPX-825's - both cavity backs

@Klarkus , @inthehole  - Your discussion was OT in the other thread so I merged the posts here.

I just got a set of the 825's and have played a couple of rounds with them. I am a leftie and play to a 12-14 most days. These are the most accurate irons I have ever played. My most recent set was a set of 712 AP2's. The Mizunos out play them completely....from full shot to short shots around the greens. I have the  4-GW with the TT Dynalite R300 shafts. The feel of these clubs is amazing. I have played all type of blades for years and didn't want to give up the feedback from the irons. I did not have to with the Mizunos. Every shot I have hit with them has gone straight at the flag. Distance seems to be about the same as the AP'2 but I expect my distance to come up a bit as I get more used to the Mizunos. Buy these and you won't be disappointed in the results you get from these irons.
