  1. Just started playing again after a ~5 year break, and planning to buy a set of clubs as I currently don’t have any. I’ve been searching on eBay and have narrowed it down to two choices for my irons - the Cobra CXIs or Mizuno MX 20s. They are basically the same price, and both are 4-PW (although the Mizuno set also has a gap wedge). Does anyone have any advice on which would be better in terms of forgiveness/high handicap play? Thanks :)
  2. Mizuno’s first American golf balls: RB Tour and RB Tour X If you live in the U.S. you might have heard rumors of Mizuno golf balls over the years or even seen images of some on the web but most likely never played one. Those days are about to end. The new Mizuno RB Tour and... I think Mizuno is underrated for a lot of things, like drivers, but… I think I'll pass, mostly because of the price.
  3. Hoping one of you could help me solve a mystery... Been playing Edel (variable length) irons/wedges for the past 18 months. Recently decided to have my old set (Mizuno MP-53) refit to match the setup of the Edel (length, weight, loft, lie) and leave them at my parent’s place to avoid hauling clubs back-and-forth. Hit the refit Mizunos for the first time today. 60° thru 8i are money - the distances are pretty close to my Edel numbers. The mystery is with the 7i-3i, which are all cavity backs in this set (vs muscle backs for lower irons). The cavity backs are now all crazy short (distance). For reference, both 8i = 150yd. But Mizuno 7i is same as my Edel PW. 6i = 9i, 5i = 8i, 4i = 160yd (should be 190yd), 3i = 170yd (should be 200yd). I can’t for the life of me figure out why cavity backs would be such a difference and how to possibly fix them. Ideas? Thanks!
  4. I recently tested out Mizuno MP 18s with the thinking that I am going to have a mixed bag of MBs and CBs. The fitter was fairly insistent that I go with the "SC" clubs 6-9 instead of the MBs. At the beginning of the fitting I was not hitting shots that great but towards the end, my shots were on and I was really liking the MBs. I have played MP33s in the past and realize the need to hit the sweet spot and didn't doubt that I could handle the 7-PW set up but he was fairly persistent in me not ordering the MB. I play 714 AP2s now fairly decent and although they are a few years old, I am not sure it is a step up but a lateral step to go to the MP 18 SC, so I am not sure it is worth to change. I don't know what the question is except I am wondering if I am crazy and should just play well with my current irons, abandoning the muscle back idea.... Anyone make this change and glad/mad that they did?
  5. Didn't really have anybody else to share this with, but I'm in the position to try out and buy a set of good condition Mizuno MP-33s. I would consider this my first "real" set as the first set of irons I bought were old CB Forged clubs, then I upgraded to a knock off CB GI irons (from Gigagolf). I like the clubs I have now, but I've always aspired to having a "good" set of irons, preferably blades. I generally consider myself a good iron player, my most consistent miss is hitting it fat/weight not forward enough at impact. What have your experiences been like going to a new set of "older" clubs been, or moving from a GI iron to a more players iron? Is it as simple as "if I hit the irons well and the price is right, go for it"?
  6. I bought a set of these just for the heck of it on eBay about a year ago, and I have no idea what they are. Looking them up online I can't find a picture or anything about them. Anyone what what they are or when they or made?
  7. Hi all. Great to be here and talking to some fellow golfers. I am looking at getting new irons for the 2018 season. For the past year ( last leg of 2016 to present ) I have been taking my golf really seriously. I have dropped from a 15 Handicap to a 6 in the last year. I want to change my irons. I am looking at Mizuno mp 18 MB , Titleist 718 MB , Taylormade P730 and Callaway Apex MB. From a little of my own research I have found Mizuno to be the best "Blade" according to people ( This is based on my own research ). Which out of these will be the better brand? Second question. What are your opinions on forged iron durability. I hit alot of balls 3 - 4 times a week. Its my own personal driving range so I hit my own "range balls". I hit of Kikuyu grass on the range. Will this cause more wear on forged clubs than normal ones ? I currently play Taylormade m2 Tour irons. The course I play has hard fairways. As I am from South Africa this is the norm for a lot of courses in my area. This will be first set of proper players irons. Reason : As I am improving I am starting to wonder if the more forgivable irons are covering weaknesses in my swing. I am pushing for scratch mid next year. Kind Regards Kudu
  8. I thought it might be nice to have wedges with shafts that match those of my irons. My old wedges have shafts slightly lighter than my irons, when heavier is typical, and they are an unpleasant color. I thought I might go through with my idea of playing 4 specialty wedges in addition to my set pitching wedge and closeting a wood. I had golf money burning a hole in my pocket. For these reasons and more I went ahead and ordered a custom set of 4 Mizuno S18 Chrome wedges in 48, 52, 56, 60. Fun! Mizuno has no upcharge on the shafts or grips I wanted so they are actually the cheapest of the newer top end wedges. And they look brilliant. I got the recoil 95 stiff shafts to match my irons set, +1/2", only 1* upright rather than the 2* of my irons to somewhat discourage pulls. Just opened them yesterday. Here's a beautiful clean new head -- soon to be a beautifully dinged and dirty head with character: Looks sweet by the ball. I'm trying the Tour Wrap 2G grips because I like the tackiness and the white. They're great with a glove -- you hardly have to close your hand for it to stick. With a sweaty bare hand they get slippery quick and I like to take my glove off inside about 60 yards, so we'll see how that goes. Unfortunately: One of these things is not like the other. I know I ordered them right. From my confirmation email: https://m.imgur.com/ZTWIJfy But from the spec sheet that came with my wedge: Was I surprised? Not really, except perhaps for the fact that I only got one right handed wedge. Literally ever time I ordered multiple clubs direct from a manufacture some of them have come right handed. (Ok, BOTH times.) Of course every company has been very good about it and rush builds and ships the correct clubs. I guess when the guy is ticking the boxes he is so used to clicking RH that he'll sometimes slip even if the previous 3 clubs from the same order were all LH.
  9. Hello, I recently was fitted for Mizuno JPX 900 irons with a true temper XP 95 S300 shaft. During the fitting, i was told that my swing speed was around 85mph. On my long/mid irons (4-8 irons). I can't seem to hold the greens as my ball just rolls off the back. I've only played two rounds. One round on greens that were recently punched. The other was on a very hot day and greens were very firm. I have played a round with a callaway chrome soft and a vice Pro which is a new ball. I have struck the ball fairly well and have placed the ball towards the front of my stance. My question is, what recourse do i have to make these irons work? Should I bite the bullet and change the shafts? This will certainly will require more money, which would not be good. I don't think Rodger Dunn would swap out. Should i add a degree if loft? Im not even sure if this would ve an option. I know i may be overreacting very early, but this is frustrating as I paid about $1000 irons that aren't doing the job.
  10. So I wanted to get people's opinion on bladed irons. Is there a point anymore to use blades? Or does today's technology make them obsolete? I know blades are hard to hit and if you don't pure them every time it's going to hurt you. But say for someone who does hit the ball on the center of the face 99% of the time, are they really that much better? I forget what irons he was using but I know a while back Luke Donald wasn't even using Mizunos MP-4s, he was using the set a step down. For someone his caliber you would think he could hit the ball with a dime welded to a shaft. But oh boy are they such a beautiful sight behind a golf ball!
  11. I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years My current handicap index or average score is: 8.4 My typical ball flight is: all over the place The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull hook So I first picked off this video that I stand way too far from the ball/line it up on the toe. I started working on that while I was at the range today. Anything else feel free to rip my swing apart. Thanks guys! Videos: How to I upload a video properly from my iPhone?
  12. Mizuno JPX-900 teaser is up on their Facebook page: https://facebook.com/mizunogolf/ Only glimpses of the irons, but they look to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing game-improvement irons out there.
  13. Help me chose between these 2 iron sets. I have a choice between Mizuno T-Zoid Comp-EZ, and Titleist 755. Both are 3-PW and both are right at $100.00. I am a mid handicapper and am upgrading from some adams game improvement irons. Both of these seem like a good deal, and I am split between the 2.
  14. 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
