Published

on

Spoke with CH,III today on the putting green about the new MP64’s. He said he loves the look but growing up with GI irons(Pings) he doesn’t think he play them cuz he likes the forgiveness he gets with the combo set he got in the bag right now.

Also, a shot of his new Mizuno wedges, which he loves.

    I have a set of these new irons and they are excellent. I am a scratch golfer and I really think these are some of the best irons I have everv played.

    I custom ordered the clubs for lie, loft, swingweight and grip size. They only took eight days to arrive.

    I did go with the Dynamic Gold shaft instead of the stock shaft.

    Feel is great, look is great, and ball flight is penetrating when I need it.

    Bought the JPX 825 Pro’s 2 weeks ago and have played 3 rounds thus far. Considered the 800 Pro’s when they first came out but couldn’t get over the look “HUGE”. Sort of like looking down on the older Callaway Irons. Played MP-53’s for the past 2 years. It’s taking a while to get used to the added distance from the stronger lofts but not disappointed at all. Shaft Optimizer recommended Dynalite Gold XP’s S300, KBS Tour Stiff (Soft Stepped) & Project X 5.5 Flighted. Wanted to go with the KBS both they were too firm for my liking, went with XP S300. They are as workable from left to right as the 53’s but not near as soft. Considered the AP2’s but the went with the 825 Pro’s for the added forgiveness. Good Job once again Mizuno for a great iron.

    I tried the JPX 825 Pros at a demo day this weekend. Though not buttery soft, I liked the weight and feel of these clubs. I play older, cast Pings (i3+) and am considering the upgrade. Went primarily to get on Mizuno’s Shaft Optimizer, which I liked, and figured I would be fitted to the JPX 825, not the Pros. Now that I have used the Optimizer, I would recommend it to everyone prior to an iron purchase.

    I have been playing a set of MX 17’s for about 5 years now and I tested the JPX 800 and 825 at Edwin Watts this afternoon. The 825’s were a lot more forgiving and they weigh less because the blade is thinner. I gained about 20 yards with the new 825 model and about 5mph of club head speed. Overall the 825’s were noticeably better and I’m looking forward to getting a set of my own when they start shipping in a couple weeks.

    I have a lot of time for Mizuno golf irons. I used a blade model for about 7 years and they were a beautiful club to hit.

    I imagine these newer ones would be just as good if not better.

Chief Engineer Chris Voshall on Mizuno’s approach to the Tour and some of the most insightful pros

Published

on

Mizuno’s Chief Engineer Chris Voshall chatted with Johnny Wunder on the latest episode of the Gear Dive.

Voshall offers innumerable interesting anecdotes–particularly interesting is the development of the JPX 900 iron for Brooks Koepka and Voshall’s discussion of his work with other Tour talents.

In the excerpt below, however, Voshall discusses Mizuno’s approach to Tour players and further, whose feedback has proven particularly valuable.

“We’re not making them something special. If they’re coming to us, it’s because the product is that good…They come to us instead of us having to go to them…that’s one of the really exciting things.”

Voshall indicated that players on Tour play essentially the same Mizuno products that are available at retail.

“If the Tour van is out of inventory, they can reach out to us…and we’ll get them more heads. There’s nothing unique about what they’re playing, which I think speaks to the customer…you can almost not trust marketing around the whole world these days, but for us to say ‘there’s nothing different’…that’s something we really hang our hat on.”

With respect to excellent testers on Tour, Voshall sang Luke Donald’s praises, as well as Jhonny Vegas and Brian Gay.

“I love working with Luke. Luke, especially when you’re talking irons…turf interaction, that’s the thing he’s looking for. So with Luke, you’ve really got to speak to him about how it feels, how it enter, how it exits [the turf] and how that’s causing the ball to launch. You could give him the exact same head with a slightly different sole grind, and he will love or hate one versus the other. He’s really cool to work with on that front.”

“Jhonny Vegas…he’s raw power. He goes at it. He wants to slam the club into the ground as hard as he can and see where it goes. He very much on the opposite end of the spectrum as Luke, who’s very much an artist out there, trying to work it, trying to do different things.”

“One of my favorite guys to work with, even though he’s not on staff anymore, is Brian Gay. He knows his game. He knows equipment. Speaking to the fact that he’s been out on Tour as long as he has and has the wins he has with the length he hits the ball, it shows that he does not miss a shot. And he knows everything…when he makes a comment on a club, that’s the one that I take most serious.”

For the rest of Voshall’s insights and perspective, give the full podcast a listen below.

SPOTTED: Srixon Z-785 driver, Z-U85 utility irons

Published

on

We recently spotted new Srixon Z-785 drivers and Z-U85 utility irons, which are likely future replacements for Srixon’s Z-765 driver and Z-U65 utility irons. Srixon is staying hush on the tech details at the moment but did allow us to take photos of the new equipment.

Released in 2016, the Z-765 driver was a smaller-profile, lower-launching counterpart offering to the Z-565 driver, so it could be possible that there is also a Z-585 driver, counter to the Z-785 driver that we spotted. Also, it appears the Z-U85 utility irons come in at least 5 different lofts: 2-6 irons.

See more photos below, and check out discussion on the Z-785 drivers and Z-U85 utility irons.

Brooks Koepka’s Winning Outfit: 2018 U.S. Open

Published

on

Brooks Koepka played like he dressed on Sunday at Shinnecock Hills for the final round of the U.S. Open; his outfit was athletic, well put together, boring with a bit of flash (those shoes!!), and most importantly, it got the job done.

See the golf clubs and shafts Brooks used to win.

A great representative of the new age of golf, Koepka has the frame of a baseball player, and he’s not afraid to accentuate it with tight-fitting polos and an athletic look. For Sunday, he chose a white-on-gray-on-gray look that was understated, but clean — just like his scorecard. He really made the Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE shoes, with hits of electric orange, the star. Check out the details on his full outfit below.

Brooks Koepka’s Winning Outfit

  • Hat: Nike AeroBill Classic99
  • Shirt: Nike Zonal Cooling polo
  • Belt: Nike Stretch Woven
  • Pants: Nike Flex
  • Shoes: Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE
