Summary: This is a superb driver.I would rate it higher than the one I purchased, the Titleist 909D2, and I liked that one plenty.I just liked the Mizuno better, but my buddy purchased that one, and he paid a little more than I did, but still got a tremendous bargain on a like-new used driver from Golf...
Pros: I actually like this Mizuno driver better than the one which I purchased for myself, the Titleist.The only reason I went with the Titleist is because the price was so low, as I already have a few good drivers.It was a total impulse buy for both of us, though my buddy actually could use a better d...
Summary: I've been through all the Pings from the original Rapture and Rapture V2 to G10 and G15. Also Nike and I've always had a slice that's been impossible to control. Tried the 10.5 Mizuno with the standard stiff shaft at a driving range and suddenly I was bombing it with a slight fade.
Conclusion: I think my overall opinion of these new JPX-800 and JPX-800 PRO irons from Mizuno is pretty clear- they rock! As you'd expect with Mizuno, the price tag is at the upper end of the market with the JPX-800's available for around $699 and the JPX-800 PRO irons for $799.
Great Irons for the mid-high handicapper who wants forgiveness with a traditional look.
7 August 2013
Summary: A great set of irons for the mid-high handicapper. I play off 15 and find these really forgiving and accurate. I generally struggle with the longer irons but even on mis-hits the 4 iron still goes most of the distance.
Pros: Forgiving Accurate Good distance Good value
Cons: Face can feel 'pingy' around the green. Slightly chunky appearance may not appeal to better player.
