Jpx825pro or mp53 ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
Could anyone give some friendly advice as I'm in the market for a new set of mizunos, I play off 15 and a fairly consistent ball striker, I currently use the mizuno mx25, I have pretty much narrowed it down to two sets the jpx825pro or a new set of the older mp53, I have demoed both sets and the 825 seem a little more forgiving but love the look of the 53's, I will be knuckling down and getting a lot more practice and play time in 2013 any thoughts !

If youre going to buckle down, Id say 53s no question.  The 825 Pros are great irons but the feel of the 53s is superior, IMO.

I just looked at both of them this summer and went with the 53's.  Love 'em.

 

Though now I wish I'd have tried the 63's too at the time.....

 

If you are knuckling down, and that top line makes you more comfy (like me).  Then 53 is the easy choice.

 

(as long as you've hit them both and neither just absolutely stands out)

With a 15 cap, I'd say the 825 PRO's are your best choice. Great irons. I just moved this past year into the 800 PRO's, and I'm very

happy. You'll be looking for something else in a couple of years anyway. By then, maybe those beautiful blades.

 

Just my thoughts.

 

BTW: Moved from JPX 800's to the PRO model.

If you are looking for forgiveness but don't want to give up the sexy looks of the MP line, you ought to check out the Mizuno MP-H4s... a little more money than the other two sets but you get nearly all the forgiveness of the JPX-825 Pros and all of the looks of an MP iron.

I had the same decision about a year but with the 800pro. I loved the way the 53's felt but the 800pro were more suitable for my game. I play at 10 and take the game pretty serious and I'm continuing to improve and still feel that the 800pro are the suitable irons for me.

Glad to read everyones comments. I've got the original AP2's, playing to an 8, and looking at replacing them with 825 Pro's. Anybody have any good experience with both irons?

Not to hijack a thread but.... I play the 800 pros got fitted for them and ended up with 2*up which I really like. I had the opportunity to buy mp53 2* down for165$ used. I took both sets to the range and found myself more accurate with mp53. I did not expect this, being they are harder clubs to hit. I guess what I'm asking is if I have a consistent swing is the mp going to be more predictable over the Jpx and thats why i found them more accurate. The mp had a better flight a consistent distance and checked immediately on the green.

Is their truth to y assumption.

Thanks for the tip. For some odd reason, I though the MP-54 was the most forgiving iron in their new MP line.

I just made the move from MX-25's to the MP-54's. I think the move from the MX-25's to the JPX825pro is actually going to LESS of a player's club than what you had. For me the question was not to go to the JPX line or even to the MP-H4's (because I think the MX-25's are already less forgiving than either of those sets) but whether I should go to the MP-54's or all the way to the MP-64's. After hitting both it was clear to me that the MP-54's were perfect for me now. Still some forgiveness but much more blade-like turf interaction.

 

EDIT - just realized how old this tread is...  so the above is not all that relevant. But to anyone looking to move from MX-25's I'd highly recommend checking out the new MP-54's...
