Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons

Recommended Posts

Just had my first custom fitting session ever and purchased some Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons. Very happy that I went and got fit as I need alot of adjustments to the clubs from standard.

Has any body been using these Irons and have a verdict on them??

I see you got about as many replies as I did. Wish I could help. Still waiting on some feedback on Titleist AP1 712's vs Mizuno JPX 825's. http://thesandtrap.com/t/69608/titleist-ap1-712-vs-mizuno-jpx-825

First let me say, I'm a BIG Mizuno fan, I'm currently on my fourth set. When the first pictures of the clubs came out, my thought was" those aren't Mizuno irons". I finally got to see them and hit them yesterday. My thought again was "those aren't Mizuno irons". The dark finish and my gosh orange, really? Taking them to the range, the set up wasn't that bad, darker color just like my Titleist wedges, not too bad, and you can't see the orange at set up (good thing). First shot a little off center with pretty good results. Second shot struck on the honey spot and I think it's still in the air, it seemed to fly forever. Long story short, I believe these will find their way into my bag, but will probably use iron covers so I don't have to look at that orange when they are in the bag.

Please compare to your othe Mizuno sets. As a 5.0are you really playing to play these? I'm very interested in your comparisons. I'm a few years away from replacing my MP-53's -- once I wear them out.

My Mizunos have been the MX23, MX25, MX200, and my current is the JPX 800 pros. I said I was a big Mizuno fan, didn't say I was a blade player.Though my index is 5 it's not because of my distance off the tee or my pin point iron shots. It's because I get up and down pretty well. Okay,by know you know I'm one of those older guy, with a body starting to wear out. Earlier this year I bought a set of TM Rocketbladez looking for the distance I'm starting to loose with age. If you have played forged clubs for awhile cast just doesn't cut it. S, even though the JPX EZ Forged is by no means your typical mizuno iron, I'm willing to use these until Mizuno figures out a my to make this game improving iron better looking, by then it will be time for a new set.

I've begun sort of shopping for some "better players game improvement" clubs to replace my Ping G20s.  I read up on the EZ Forged, and it sounds like I may be within its target audience, but I can't really like the look.  Now, this is horridly superficial I know, but there ya go, I would kind of like something that looks nicer and orange isn't my color.  Probably good clubs, but I'm not even going to demo them.

If you have been playing Ping I think you should at least demo the JPX EZ Forged. I f you like the feel of the forged club but don't like the looks you can go with a set of JPX825 Pros. Once you play forged you won't go back to a cast iron

    • Venturing out to the Marine Base today. Have not played there in some time. Hope to get a tee time around 10:30 as a walk on. Short notice, but anybody that can make it.... (also have to stop by the exchange...it seems that S.W.M.B.O.  has run out of Chanel Nr 5...this constitutes an emergency).
    • @Vinsk The only thing I can really do is describe what I have felt/done. I played my best lead arm dominant golf with the intent of the lead arm being soft and swinging like a pendulum very vertically.  So,  what I mean is what worked for me was to let's say just stand normally no club in hand and then swing the lead arm at about a 45 degree angle to the chest.  Left shoulder swing center. Relative to golf posture I would imagine a straight line on the ground maybe 35-40 degrees from the inside and swing my lead arm on that line feeling like the hands never got outside that line.  The feel I used was left arm feeling like it was swinging vertically like a pendulum but right on the imagined line of approach.  So the line of approach let's say ball is 12 o'clock target is at 9 the line would be around 4 o'clock. The trail arm in this method just added support but never dictated the clubhead motion.  This method worked well for me but I moved on to other things and can't really even make it workable anymore.  The crucial aspect was that the location of that vertical left arm pendulum created the body motion.  It was similar to the Malaska type deal a bit. So,  now it's very different.  Now the basis of my swing is like if you stood there with a piece of wood horizontal at waist height with a nail in it and a hammer in the trail hand and hammered the nail. So,  kinda like a bicep curl.  The lead arm is basically inert or soft.  The motion is controlled by the trail hand arc.  Feels like the swings center is more the right elbow to me.  My feel is that I try to hammer back through address.  I just try to remain still and make that motion. My body moves only a bit.  I never felt with either method when playing well that I was aggressively pivoting but that my body moves turns in accommodation of the master intention.   The downward hammer arc basically kicks the clubhead out at the bottom.  For me I stay in pretty decent shape with steady head doing this and the clubhead carries me into the finish.  If you have watched Malaska it's kinda like a right arm Malaska deal.  It's not complicated.   I don't shift weight bump hips squat or post up or try to spin the shoulders.  The swing gets me to my lead side every time without thinking about it.    For me this style is very very easy on my body.   Thats my ramblings on that for now,  @Vinsk.  You have a unique situation.  I do know that I can't play well without having one side or the other be the master.  Trail or lead.      
    • Yes, it's surprising that you can get a ball to stop or slow down with a partial swing or even a putting stroke. The ball you use likely makes a big difference in these cases.
    • The challenges should be fascinating. Our hunch is that there will be many challenges on the difficult par three 17th, but each team will make decisions independently (and could vary based on conditions as they go).  6 points up for grabs with the challenges in today's matches. Reminder, the yellow ball will be played alternate shot and team that shoots par or better (net) gets the point.
