Hi,

Looking for experiences with both sets.  How close are they in respect to distance, forgiveness, feel?

I am recovering from neck injury, so I cannot test.  I can get the 800hd for $399, or the EZ for $699.  Is the EZ that much better?


Thanks for any help,

Mike

I tried both when I was getting fitted on a trackman and the JPX800 HD was not any better than my Adams ProA12.  The EZ forged were much better with regards to longer distance and dispersion.  The feel IMO was much better than the JPX800.

What about the JPX 825 series? Debating on going with the 825s or the EZs.

I think he's referring to the non-forged EZ...

Right now, the JPX 825 and EZ (std.) are the same $.

I think the 800HD are quite a bit bulkier looking.  Are you in a real rush to get the irons, or can you wait until you actually able to use/test 'em?

Depends on recovery. Just doing some research before I can. Thanks for your reply.  I'm  leaning towards the EZ...

Check out the Mark Crossfield reviews of the EZ on YouTube, he liked them enough to put them in the bag.

I have not hit the 800 HD but currently game a MP 54 and MP 4 combo set with DG R300. A playing partner of mine, who is a bit older and former D1 golfer, just put the JPX EZ non forged with the stock Orochi shafts in senior flex in his bag. He always likes me to hit his new clubs to get my opinion, so on a par 3 he handed me a short iron and although the flex was a bit soft for me it was amazing. The feel is easily on par with my MP 4 and the ball actually flighted lower. Be sure to check out the Orochi shaft offerings. I am seriously considering a set of these. I just ordered a JPX Fli Hi with the shaft to match my set as my 4 iron. They are point and shoot and you can work the ball.

Is a great idea.  Thanks for the graphite feedback...
