Does it mean, Mizuno 825 pro is not that popular ?
The price seems to be similar to each other...
Which golf review sites? And which ranking? For example, the Golf Digest Hot List rates clubs on four different weighted criteria:
- Performance 45%
- Innovation 30%
- Look/Feel/Sound 20%
- Demand 5%
RBZ Tour irons got high marks as a "Player's distance club," high points for innovation, but GD cautioned iron-to-iron distance gaps might be problematic.
The 825 Pro irons score points "for bringing forging technology to a Game Improvement club," but GD didn't elaborate on what this means.
One difference: 825s scored lower in Demand than RBZ Tours. So, Mizuno lags in marketing hype?
For details, click: http://hotlist.golfdigest.com/compare/1630-1637/Mizuno-JPX-825-Pro-vs-TaylorMade-RocketBladez-Tour
GolfWRX rated the 825 Pro positively as middle-level (GI) irons, but didn't mention the RocketBladz Tour in the early reviews.
So, I'm not quite sure what you meant by the bolded blue text from your quote.
