What was wrong with the MX series? They were some of there best sellers. Leave the ugly irons over in Japan.

I just, purchased the JPX 800's and love them. I bought them to replace my Srixon I-506 irons (started playing blades and my handicap jumped). I hit X-22's, G15's, TITLEIST AP1's, Burner's, and the JPX were the longest and best feeling of the group. I have no regrets at all ... you have to hit them and you will see what I mean

If they're longer than the Burners, which have 2 degrees less loft through most of the set, then Mizuno must have added some pixie dust to the grain flow forging process. No problem at all believing they felt better, though.

The Burners were equivalent if not longer than the JPX. I did not find the consistency with the TM's that I did in the Muzuno's, although they came in a close second in the group of irons that I hit.

The jpx 800 are cast and the pro are grain flow forged.

Anyone get the mp 53 or mp 63? I was wondering if they are as easy to hit as they say, apparently the 53's are supposed to be easier to hit than the MX 300's. Anyways just wondering if they are worth they dough or should I just hold off until next fall for the mp58/68 replacements.?

Another option is to look at the MX-200. Similar to the 300, just a bit of a larger clubface.

Still has that famous Mizuno feel to them and with the new models coming out, perhaps you can find a deal on the 200s.

I'll have to go hit a few balls to see if the MP-53s are that easy to hit, but just by looking at the picture, it did seem very forgiving on mishits.

The perimeter weighting seemed more like those of a SGI irons. More than the MX-300s. Either way, I hope it still has the sweet feel of the Mizuno irons. Can't wait to try them out. Dan

I live in the frozen tundra and its been raining and in the 40's-50's so I haven't had a chance to demo them yet. I think that I'm gonna hold off and play my Titleist 755's until next fall and than check out the replacements for the MP58/68 model.

Well, I didn't obsess over the decision, just went and bought a set of new JPX 800 Pro on Saturday. Absolutely love the looks. With Dynalite shaft, the clubs feel very balanced in my hands. Played a round yesterday and I think I made a great decision for me. Didn't play that well, but it wasn't the clubs. They appear to be very forgiving. On a par 3, I took a terrible swing that that left a divot pattern that started 2 inches behind the ball, with the toe just barely catching the ball. The ball went straight and came up only 15 yards short.

Very happy with the decision and look forward to many years of enjoyment. Btw, with the amped up lofts, I went with 4 thru Gap, which almost matches my old 3 thru P.

Just got these a week ago and I love them. Mizuno wasn't really on my list when I when into an iron fitting, but after hitting balls for almost 2 hours with a ton of different clubs, this produced the best results by far for me. The fitting was fantastic itself, and with the technology I could see the hard #'s about how all of the clubs performed. My distance was more than 10 yards longer with this 6 iron versus the Taylor Made Burner 2.0's, and I was I also hitting it much straighter and with higher backspin. I had older Taylor Made irons prior to this.

I demoed and love these clubs. I am gaming the 52s right now but am going to get a set of pros as my second set. I was hitting them longer than the 2.0s but only, in my opinion, because the fitting allowed me to ad 1/2 " and 2 degrees upright....so the clubs fit. I think that is why people see these as so long compared to some of the others.....they are fitted correctly on the spot.

I demoed the JPX-800 Pros and MP-53s today. The JPX are very nice clubs, but I hit the 53s just about as far and thought they had the clear edge on feel.

I hit the JPX-800 Pro 6i at Golfsmith a few days ago and really liked it... If I was in the market for new clubs (which I'm not) these would make the list of clubs to consider for sure.

I demoed the 800 pros and the 53s. To me, the 53s were the clear winners but the 800s were sweet. I just couldn't get past the top line

Waiting for delivery of my JPX-800 Pro's from Mizuno through Golfsmith. I ordered 7 iron - PW all .5" long and 1* flat. That 1* flat was from my teacher when I was fitted by him for my Fusions in 2005 (based on my size and how I SHOULD swing). The .5" long was based on the Golfsmith guy's measurements of my hand to floor. Since Mizuno's are all .25" shorter than most irons, I'm not worried about the .5" extra he talked me into. But the lie has me worried. I did some digging and find that the JPX-800 Pros are already much flatter than my Fusions and any current Callaways. So, Golfsmith and I are trying to change the order to standard lie while it is process. Not sure how that is going to work. Note: I only ordered 7 iron - PW. Ordered two wedges separately.

Question are:
1. Since Mizuno are flat, should I order by lie number or is there a reason they should be different/flatter than my old clubs? For example, standard Mizuno 7 iron is already 1* flat compared to the standard Fusions. But they become even fatter through the set until the 9 and PW standard Mizuno is 2* flatter than the standard Fusions.

2. Is there a reason these "better player" irons get flatter than other manufactures' clubs as you drop down through the set?

    • Oh yeah, I've know several. Not really giving up the game entirerly, but giving up on going pro. They went on mini tours or play events the (now) web.com tour and just give up after a year or so. They didn't really have a gauge of how much time and skill it really takes to make a living playing golf. If you dont win or make a name for yourself in the college ranks or big international am tournaments, you're really behind the 8ball. 
    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
    • I disagree with this. Lots of fantastic golfers today don't use this move. People will adopt swing moves based on the style in a given era, regardless of whether they actually improve the swing or not. Think about reverse C finishes or square feet. Some top players play well despite certain trends, not because of them.
