Jpx825pro or mp53 ?

10 posts in this topic

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...

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
