  1. The Ping G25 set is almost double that of the Mizuno JPX 850! I can't seem to find the Callaway X2 Hot set but I could find the "X" set. Callaway X @ R6k Cleveland 558 Altitude @ R5.5k TaylorMade Speed Blade @ R7k Nike Slingshot 6 @ R6k Titleist 741 AP1 @ R7k So I phoned the golf store and spoke to the pro there, he suggested that I look at some Titleist sets that would suit my budget. How similar would the above mentioned be to the Mizuno JPX 850. (obviously not on par as they are half the price but maybe from a prize/performance viewpoint?) Sorry if I sound like a total and utter noob, could just imagine if someone asked me to suggest a cheaper graphics card that would have the same performance as a higher tier...impossible.
  2. Hi, (Skip to final paragraph for main topic.) So I'm new to golf, but not completely. I do have some experience at the range and used to play about 4 times a year whilst in high school, I don't have an official handicap either. Since the end of last year I have been very interested in golf and enjoy the sport way more than I used to in the past. Going to the range and hitting a few balls feels relaxing and enjoyable thus I want to get more into the sport. Now, gear...I went for a club fitting (irons) at my local golf shop (Cape Town) where we tested a few brands, shafts ect. He fitted me with a club and changed the shaft and there we were, something that I could hit easily and felt great/consistent. The club was a Mizuno JPX 850 with a Dynamic Gold X100 shaft, it felt very good. Avg. stats with the club: 6 iron, club head speed 100mph, ball speed 133mph back spin ~5000rpm. So these Mizunos felt great and the club fitter advised me that I have a good swing and should get a set of clubs that would suit a wide variety of handicaps as I might improve quick. I would like some suggestions of cheaper alternative clubs to the Mizuno JPX 850 irons which cost R10 000.00, I'm on a budget of R6 000.00 so something 60% of their value but with the same feel would be perfect! Thank you in advance :) Moderator, please delete my double post, the lag was strong
