I've narrowed down my search for irons to Mizuno JPX 825 Pro or Bridgestone J40 Dual Pocket Cavity. Looking to go to a forged iron that provides some forgiveness. Anyone have experience with both clubs? I'm curious as to which is more forgiving. Any other preferences for one over the other? Thank you in advance for your help/comments/advice.

I played the JPX-825 pros for a couple of months. They are truly one of the best players clubs out there. They have enough forgiveness to give you a good result from a bad swing. I'm currently playing the bridgestone j40 cb. These have allot of forgiveness as well. The heads are the same size and the soles have the same design although the j40 look a little thicker on the sole. I think with this choice it's all about what look you would rather. Honestly I'd say go with the Mizzy's. They are really good, feel great, easily wotkable, and more forgiving heel to toe.

Did you check out the new Mizuno MP-H4's? They appear to be a closer fit to the J40's than the JPX line.

I played the JPX 800 pros for over a year and this year am playing the MP64/H4 combo set.  I would say the JPX825 Pros play more like the J40 dpc irons.

The JPX825 pro, AP2, and J40DPC are all great options.

The H4 set is a great set just very different than the others. Most reviews talk about the H4 being forgiving if your misses are up and down the face of the club and the JPX being more forgiving on misses more towards the heal and toe.  My .02 is the biggest differences is in the look of the clubs and the sole.  I played a rental set of AP2's last week when I played Torrey Pines and they reminded me of how great they (AP2 and JPX Pros) are.  Far more forgiving and just a different feel than the MP64 and the H4s.

I have not had the J40's on the course.  I don't think you can go wrong with the JPX825 Pro series.

Just because I am biased, get Bridgestone!!! I rarely see someone playing a Bridgestone anything. But when I do, they turn out to be a player.

Thanks. I just purchased a used 6-iron J40 DPC on Ebay ($26 + shipping) as a sort of demo since no one near me carries it in stock. So I'll get a better ideas for the look of it when i receive it.

I love my Bridgestone's. My buddy plays the J38 DPC's and I play the J40 CB's. My buddy went and hit my CB's yesterday and went and bought a set of J40 DPC's. Obviously its all feel. But it's something about Bridgestone. They feel like butta! I used to play Mizzy's, and I like their offerings as well. You really can't go wrong either way!

Sounds like a win-win. Thanks!

I just switched from Mizuno MX 200 to J40 DPCs.  Just got them so haven't had them out on the course yet but can't wait to get some time in with them.  

Compared to the JPX825 Pros I think you'll find the J40s to have less offset and a slightly thinner topline.  The sole width isn't very wide, I believe a previous poster was comparing the CB version which, from pictures I have seen, appear to have a wider sole than the DPCs do (and more offset...both of which seems odd considering the DPC is the larger and more forgiving head).  I could be wrong about that as I've never seen the CB version in person, but the pics that were posted in another thread made the soles on them look wider than the DPCs.  I really don't like looking down at offset clubs but wanted something with more forgiveness than a blade.  The J40 DPCs are perfect, same offsets as a set of Titliest blades basically but in a much more forgiving head.  

Mizunos are great and if I was a better ball striker I would get some MP64s probably (almost did anyway until I discovered the J40 DPCs).  I don't love the JPX line, they ruin the clean aesthetics I love about the MP line with those cavity badges, but I admit to having an unreasonable aversion to such things (another point for the J40s...so clean, love the lack of any excess adornment).

Thanks. Do you think there's a big difference between the J38 DPC and J40 DPC?

does the swingweight feel different?

i've heard that the j40 dbc feels light (which is good for me)

i'm particularly interested in finding a comparison using graphite shafts (elbow)

thanks

Bridgestone beats Mizzy hands down.  I'm biased toward Bridgestone but this is my experience.  If Bstone wanted to, they'd own the iron market w/ the J40 and J15 line of irons.  Add the J33 CB's in as well.  I still game the J33's and they are simply awesome.  Guys salivate when looking at my bag.  I have 6 sets of Bridgestone irons all in their own bag in my basement.

Freddie Cupples still plays the J40 DPC's, made a great finish at last year's Masters w/ them.  I wish Bstone would just re-sell the J40 DPC's, I'd buy a brand new set immediately, shame on me for not finding out about Bstone until after J40's were ending!!!!!!

I thought the 825 PRO is more compact and smaller blade length then j40 DPC?  Maybe the J40 CB is same as 825 pro?

I'd be happy to play either but I'd go with Bridgestone J40 unless you're considering a Mizzy MP52/53/54.
