Mizuno Fitting next week

6 posts in this topic

I have been playing the AP1s for a couple years now and finally started getting lessons as I cannot get below an 8 handy by myself(should have done along time ago).  Anyways I am deciding on Mizuno Irons for my next set.  I am going to swing the JPX, 53, 58 probably.  I am an 8 handicap but my ball striking is my poor point.  Guessing he will recommend the 53s but not sure.  I like the looks of them all.  Any recommendations prior to getting fitted.

Pretty excited to actually be fitted versus buying off the shelf.

Yeah, I'd also check out the MX-300s as well. Might be able to save yourself some money that way since they're last year's model. Very similar performance to the JPX-800 Pro, and they look great. I reviewed both ( JPX-800 Pro here , MX-300 here ), and if I had to pick only one, it would probably end up with me, blindfolded and flipping a coin. Not sure if they'll allow you to try them out as well since they're not current, but if they will, I'd give them a shot.Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

First, I'm a big Mizuno fan, I play the MP-57's and love their feel.  I am not familiar with the newer models, so can't really comment about whether one is better than another.  However, I would strongly suggest that you buy a set based on the golfer you want to become, not the one you currently are.  As you improve, you will appreciate the greater feedback you'll get from a "player's" club.  You want to improve your game, so buy something that won't hold you back.  Anyway, it's something to ask your fitter/pro about.

make sure you swing both of the jpx's, the pros and the normal ones. the pros are forged and could give you the forgiveness and consistency you need in your iron shots, with the workability that the normal jpx's wont.

Definetly give the MP-68s a try too.  You might think that you cant hit a blade, but I think its worth a shot and you might surprise yourself.  Besides, if you are taking lessons and wanting to perfect your swing, nothing is going to give you the feedback that the 68s will.

JPX Pros are really sweet too.  I love my MP-32s but if I were in the market for a new set of irons it would be very hard for me to turn down a set of JPX Pros.  Forged and easy to hit.  Whats not to love about that???

    • Wrapping up the front nine, JS bogied three of the last four holes to finish +10. For Nos. 6, 7 and 9, he put two tee shots into deep right rough, and one into a fairway bunker. He failed to reach the green on any of these three approaches.
    • Have you ever been fitted for a driver? Check around and see if there's a driver that will work for you. If you get a new driver (not always 2017, but just not a used one), often the fitting is free. What problem do you have with driver? I know a couple of golfers who use 3W for driver, and off the fairway. But, most people lose out on distance by using only 3W. A 3H and 4H might help out as bridge clubs. You may have to test a few hybrids before you find a model that works for you. Or, you might find high-lofted fairway woods (5W, 7W) work better. You just need to test things out and see what works. Also consider taking a tune-up lesson to see if you have any swing wobbles you can cure before you get new clubs.
    • foot-note. The assembled shaft is 43 1/2 inches. This is a little short for a driver which adds to my conclusion that a previous owner had tipped the shaft and the piece was somehow left inside and held there by friction until I tapped it loose during my re-shaft. Also, the fact that it was on an adjustable driver, they probably had to cut it short to accommodate the hosel adapter.   Sorry, if I tend to answer my own questions, but it does not hurt to seek out confirmations.     "golf club forensics". 
    • The new shaft was from an adjustable Tour Edge XCG-7 (Matrix White Tie-Stiff). I did a little research and I am fairly certain it was somehow left in the shaft (maybe on purpose just to piss somebody off -it was not new) when they originally tipped it. There is normally quite a bit of the parallel tip to cut from and the fact that it was exactly 1.75 inches long, leads me to believe that it is the piece cut off. I am surprized it didn't come loose before I switched shafts. I am not positive mind you, but after looking at photos of tip trimming, that's exactly what it looks.  Heck, for all I know, it may even have been trapped inside the shaft  and only came loose after numerous changes in the (so-called) loft adjustment.   Anyway, no biggie, I am just a curious sort and obsessive tinkerer.    Thanks, Shorty.
