I really liked the JPX800 driver, looks performance and all, but that JPX825 driver is dead sexy! If it performs like it's predecessor, watch out!

I picked up a set of JPX-825 irons a few weeks ago. Not as sexy looking as the MPs but I love them so far. If only the frigid weather and snow would disappear!

The triangular driver says "I'm 5 years behind everyone else."

Triangle is very stable and forgiving - I like it, but most have moved away from it as consumers have shown they don't appreciate it. Most have gone to a softer triangle or a pearish triangle.

The clubs disappear in the grass. If it wasn't for the matte groove area, you'd wonder where the f&%k the head of the club went!

I've been looking at the JPX 825 Pros and the me MP-H4s. I'm playing to a 9 now. Like the looks on the H4s better. Anybody have a good plus/minus?

Unlike some others, Mizuno doesnt follow ever little golf fad.  Mizuno goes their own way with what works, even if thats not whats the hottest thing on tour.  Hence the lack of an adjustable driver.

They should chrome out an entire set like that and call them the Predators. They'd sell terribly, but they'd be funny to see -- err, not see.

    • I travelled back to NZ (from England) to visit family and had a chance to play a round of golf while there. I turned up dressed as I normally would for golf in England (longs, shirt, jersey) and bugger me...these guys must have thought I was a PGA Tour pro! They were all dressed in tatty shorts, tee shirts, no gloves and tennis shoes!! Thankfully I managed to keep the lie going (that I was a PGA Tour Pro) for at least the first drive! By the time Real Life (tm) caught up with me I was comfortably down the fairway and out of site of everyone else (apart from the 3 chaps I was playing with) :) Regards Mailman
    • Continue to struggle with my driver comfort which is typical for a new driver. I did have an amazing range session with it, set at 9.5 degrees loft. I know right now it is just me and I need to still get on a launch monitor.
    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings.
