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.

Cobra launches King Forged Tec Black and King Black Utility irons

Published

on

We first spotted Cobra’s new King Forged Tec Black irons (in both One-length and variable length) and King Black Utility irons (in both One-length and variable length) at the 2018 PGA Show. The company wasn’t dishing out any information related to the clubs at that time, however, electing to await for the official launch to provide details.

Well, Cobra officially launched the clubs on Tuesday, so we now have all of the tech info, specs and more.

Read below for all of the details, and click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the clubs in our forums.

King Forged Tec Black irons

Cobra first launched its Forged Tec irons in 2015; “Tec” stands for Technology Enhanced Cavity. They used five different materials in the club head to produce an iron with more forgiveness and distance.

The 2018 Forged Tec irons have gotten a material upgrade with a new Forged 4140 Stainless Steel face, allowing them to be made thinner and produce greater ball speeds across the face. They also have the new “dimonized” black finish that appeared on the company’s King Forged MB/CB irons in the past (and the irons that Rickie Fowler uses). Cobra says the finish is more durable than any black finish on the market.

“The handsome new Dimonized Black Metal (DBM) Matte Finish boasts the industry’s most durable satin black finish ever, reducing glare and providing extreme wear resistance while maintaining the look and feel of a classic forged iron,” Cobra said in a press release.

Additionally, the irons have tungsten weights to lower CG (center of gravity), and move CG more toward the center of the face, and they have carbon fiber medallions to dampen vibrations for a softer feel.

Forged Tec Black One Length

At the 2018 PGA Show, Cobra representatives said that One-length irons represent at least 60 percent of all its iron sales. Yea, wow. So it’s no wonder why Cobra is coming out with Forged Tec Black One-length irons in addition to its variable length offering.

The one-length irons sets match the weight and length of the 7 iron throughout the set, and have progressive tungsten weighting to achieve different launch characteristics — that means the longer irons will launch a bit higher, and the shorter irons a bit lower. New in this set is also progressive lie angle configurations; the longer irons will have a more upright lie angle, while the shorter irons will have a bit flatter lie angle.

The goal here is to allow golfers to take one swing no matter what the number says on the sole of their irons, but still produce desired results.

Both of the Forged Tec Black irons come equipped with Cobra Connect (powered by Arccos) in the butt end of the grips so golfers can retrieve data on every shot they hit during a round of golf or practice session. Golfers who purchase a set of these irons will also receive enough Arccos sensors to put in the remaining clubs in their bag, as well.

The irons come stock with steel True Temper AMT Tour White shafts, with a powder-coated black finish to match the black club heads, or graphite UST Recoil ES SmacWrap shafts. The 7-piece sets (5-PW, GW) sell for $1,099 in steel or $1199 in graphite, and will hit retail on April 6.

King Utility Black irons

Cobra also announced the launch of its King Utility Black irons, including variable length and one-length options.

They’re each made with Cobra’s familiar PwrShell face technology, which adds stability around the perimeter to make the clubs more forgiving while also allowing the faces to be constructed thinner. The faces use forged 455 high-strength stainless steel inserts to optimize ball speed across the face. Also for greater ball speeds, they have full, hollow-body constructions, and they have Tungsten toe weights (67-73 grams in the variable length irons and 90-94 grams in the shorter, one-length irons). For more precision and consistent spin, they have CNC milled faces and grooves.

The utility irons are also adjustable, with +/- one degree of adjustability using their MyFly8 hosel.

They have black PVD coats to achieve their black finishes, rather than the dimonized finish of the Forged Tec irons. Like the Forged Tec irons, however, they come equipped with Cobra Connect in the grips.

The Utility Black irons hit retail on April 6, and will sell for $219 in graphite and $199 in steel. The variable length heads will be available in 3 (18-21 degrees) and 4 (21-24 degrees) irons, while the One-length irons are available in 3 (18-21 degrees), 4 (21-24 degrees) and 5 (24-27 degrees) irons. Each come stock with steel true Temper AMT Tour White shafts with black powder coating, or graphite UST Recoil ES SmacWrap shafts.
