Mizuno JPX-825 and JPX-825 Pro

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
For those who have played both, how would you compare distance and forgiveness of these two?
I'm 54 years old. 20 years ago I was probably about a 10 handicap. Good solid fundamentals but because I'm getting older just don't hit it very far anymore. 7 iron about 145 to 150.
Really on the fence between these two.
Thanks for any input.

I like the Pro version but ended up buying Titleist AP1s after a very good player I know (Golfsmith club guru) recommended them. The AP1s are great. The 714 model is coming out later this year.

I think the main difference is that the pro are forged.

The forged feel does really make impact softer. Toe shots are not as sharp in the fingers.

I tested some in right hand, but they did not have it in lefty at the time so I gave up and eventually got I20s from ping.

Mizuno are great, just got some used MP32, and like them a lot. Might give my I20s to my son to use.

The Pros look better and if you don't need the added forgiveness that the regular model provides I would choose them. Being a 10 handicap the 825 Pros are a good match for you.

Thanks guys. I'm kind of leaning towards the Pros because of the forged feel.

I don't think I can go wrong with either.

I have the regular version. I definitely don't need the help but it is awesome to be able to pull out a 9 iron when you used to pull an 8 or 7. I really like them.

Not exactly the same thing, but I was playing JPX 800 Pros until recently.  They were fine, and reasonably forgiving for quasi-players clubs, but they were kind of an odd 'tweener set for me in that they didn't feel as smooth as the MP line but were noticeably less forgiving than the MX-200s I had previously.  I wouldn't normally do this but ran across a deal on a slightly used set of JPX 825s in my spec and made an impulse buy, and, while they don't have the solid, muted forged feel that Mizuno is famous for, they feel and sound pretty good for GI irons.  But the real difference is that they are simply automatic to hit.  First round I played with them, when I'd feel myself catching it a bit fat or off the heel or just letting my tempo get uneven, I'd look up expecting to be way offline and/or short only to find the ball sitting on the front fringe.  Such a huge confidence boost it's incredible.

I read somewhere that the steel/forging process of the JPX 825 Pro is not the same quality as the steel/forging process of the MP line, thus the 825 do not necessarily feel as soft upon impact.

If anything, any difference would probably more of a material issue than a process issue.

I did try the 825pro in right hand and the MP53 right hand and felt that the more forgiving cavity made the 825pro feel "softer". When I hit the MP53 right, it did feel really good.

Too bad Mizuno does not have a full offering for lefties.
