Just ordered a set of JPX 825s with KBS Tour X flex. Too bad it's the end of the season for me, but atleast I can stare at them all winter!

Will post pics when they arrive!

Nice set!

I took this iron for a test on the range today against Ping G20s.  They are really really great irons.  Nice look from the top, but plenty forgiving.  The G20 launches high and straight with not too much feedback.  The 825s were launched lower but still had equal dispersion for me.  Much better feedback.

I have finally found the replacement to my beloved Callaway X20s.  The 825s are exactly what I am looking for in an iron.

How were the JPX 825s flight vs the X20s?  I am playing the X22s and am considering the JPX 825s or waiting to see the Ping G25s.  I have hit the Ping G20s with the CFS shaft and the flight was good and longer than my X22s.  But, I have only hit it off mats outside (not grass).  Not sure about the wide sole, though I hear the G25s are supposed to have a narrower sole.

Flight was similar to my X20s, but the 825s are more forgiving and are longer.  The trajectory is similar for me.  I don't care much about the extra length because accuracy is way more important to me.  To me, the 825s are the perfect replacement for my X20s considering I don't play as often as I used to.

If you really like the 825 look and feel, their flight can be changed with different shafts.  Shafts have more of an impact on flight than head design for the most part.

Thanks. I will go with Nippon 950s in steel or perhaps graphite shafts. I have been battling tendonitus in my left elbow (cortisone, rehap) and had surgery on my right elbow for the same issues about 10 years ago. In fact, earlier this year I went back to my Ping G2s with graphite shafts for a bit. I had forgotten how good the G2s were.
