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.

The hottest blade irons in golf right now

Published

on

As we’ve written before, the decision to put a new driver in the bag is usually obvious. Better numbers at testing, perceptibly longer distance, and as long as your bank account allows, you have your new gamer.

The iron switch, however, is a trickier beast. Comfort with the variety of shots one needs to hit is key. Confidence from one’s long irons through the higher lofts is critical. Thus, even the greatest enthusiasm for a new iron release isn’t always followed by a mass exodus to gaming said irons. This is doubly true at the professional level, where the tools are critical to a player’s livelihood.

That said, the combination of forum chatter, GolfWRX member enthusiasm, and what we’re spotting in our WITB photos from tour stops are a reliable indicator of the hottest irons in the game.

And judging by the response to our recent Instagram post, we’re confident that these four models are the hottest blade irons in golf right now.

Callaway Apex MB

Buzz built steadily for the Apex MB iron when we first spotted them in Tour players’ bags at the beginning of 2017. The irons are the product of direct feedback from the company’s Tour staffers, according to Luke Williams, Director of Product and Brand Management at Callaway. Forged from 1025 Carbon Steel, these irons have the shortest blade lengths, the thinnest soles and the smallest overall heads in the vast line of Callaway irons. They’re designed for maximum workability, and for tour-desired turf interaction.

Mizuno MP-18

The pioneers of Grain-Flow Forging, Mizuno went back to its roots with the MP-18 iron model. A throwback to the great muscle backs in the company’s history, Mizuno was shooting for the look of an iron that could have been forged a century ago. Shorter blade length, cambered top line, sharp, compact wedges, all combined with the most minimal badging make the MP-18 an instant classic that set the GolfWRX forums afire.

TaylorMade P730

TaylorMade’s P730, particularly in its prototype incarnations, made quite a splash on the PGA Tour. Building on the heritage of the TP-MB irons, P730 was developed in collaboration with the very best players in the world. The 1025 carbon steel irons irons feature a smaller profile and crisper lines than the MB series irons. The combination of the clean look and a deep rear groove have players drooling. Discussing working with Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose to design the P730, TM’s Senior Director of Irons, Tomo Bystedt said, “What these players need is a very low-inertia club that they can [manipulate] easily, almost like a surgeon’s scalpel.” Behold the scalpel.

Titleist 718 MB

“For the purist there is no substitute for a one-piece, muscle back iron. The 718 MB is the modern choice for those desiring a traditional forged look and feel,” says Titleist in the 718 MB marketing materials.

It’s hard to argue with that statement from the “appearance of a classic forged iron” standpoint. Purists appreciate that the 718 MB maintains Titleist’s traditional lofts (the 6-iron is 31 degrees, the pitching-wedge is 47 degrees), thin top-line, minimal offset, and limited badging. In short, if it ain’t broke…
