Tried these and the Tours a few days ago at Golf Mart (San Diego) as I'm in the market for a new set of irons (40th bday present for myself). I grew up playing Mizzys so I have great respect for their quality irons. Hit the 6 iron (Nippon Modus 105...stiff). Club felt buttery pure and soft. The only thing that had me baffled was the spin was lower than what I had expected. Here are the numbers directly off of the simulator and would really appreciate any input/advice from you guys out there:
Mizuno JPX 900 Forged - 6 iron (10 shot average)
86.5 mph club head
125.4 ball speed
1.45 efficiency ratio (have no idea what this is but it was 1.45 for all 10 shots...anybody can answer what that is, I would appreciate it)
16.2 launch angle
285L side spin (this I get...a play a slight draw)
3989 back spin
4000 total spin?!?!?
31 yards peak height
43 degrees descent angle
190 yards carry
205 yards total distance
-3 yard offline
I play courses all over SD but my favorite track is Maderas which has some harder greens so I'm concerned about my ball sticking with spin rates like this. Tried the Tour version and added about 500 extra rpm's and lost about 6 yards compared to the Forged version. Gonna head back and try the iBlades next but I've been playing forged since I was 12 years old so not sure what to expect. Needless to say, I'm completely lost right now!
Just played first day with JPX 900 Forged. I had similar Simulator experience. 6 iron Speed 85. Shafted with the modus .
My longest iron was a downwind 5 iron. It rolled a total of 3 ft. For my swing the heads launch the ball high enough they stay in the air a long time and move very little when landing.
I wasn't able to find a demo to use in actual play so just took the leap. If you can't find a demo for actual play good luck.
