New Mizuno JPX-825 Pro irons Spotted at the PGA

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.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.

Published

We spotted new shallow-faced CF218 fairway woods (15 and 17 degrees) from Fourteen Golf on the range at TPC San Antonio on Tuesday at the 2018 Valero Texas Open, each equipped with Graphite Design TS918 shafts. Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.

Check out more photos below, and see what GolfWRX Members are saying about the clubs in our forums.
