The woods are seriously nice looking this year, nice stealthy black look to them and they seem to setup pretty square from my eye. Only thing I think is going to hurt them is not having a good stock shaft in there, the Orochi isn't terrible, but with the competition all putting in nice shafts into their drivers, I think Mizuno needed to follow suit to boost this market for themselves.
Overall, the new lineup should be a hit for them.

Any idea when said wedges are to be released? I saw the pics in CH3 bag and they look really great. I am in the market for some new wedges and was just wondering how long I'd have to hold off before they're released.

Making the H4's huge goes against what the MP line is, MP is meant to be low handicap, JPX high handicap.
I can understand why they have made the 825 Pro compact and not as GI looking, with the 53 gone there is a gap in the range, so it appears they made the 64 bigger and 825 pro smaller to close the gap where the 53 was.

Considering their MSRP (>$1000), they seem to also fit into this new world of very expensive and "exotic" SGI clubs (RAZR XF, K15, RocketBallz Max).

Interesting. I was very surprised he switched when he did (PGA and European money leader), especially when his iron/short game is his bread and butter. Johnny Miller tells a story where he switched from an old set of irons he loved to a new model that his sponsers pushed on him, and he could never get used to them. One wonders if he really liked the 59's or was getting a lot of pressure from Mizuno. I guess the question now is, does he like the 64's better, or does Mizuno want him to use them?
