Mizuno may be better known for their better player bladed irons but that doesn't mean they don't make some great game-improvement sets. The Mizuno JPX 800 Irons
has been introduced to replace Mizuno's long-running MX range and brings a host of new technologies from Japan.
Donald, who has been pivotal in helping Mizuno design the MP-62 irons and the new MP-63s
, was given the JPX-800 clubs to hit during a recent testing day and the results were pretty dramatic with a 17-yard increase in his carry distance with a 6 iron!
These are the most forgiving irons Mizuno have ever produced, according to the manufacturer, but unlike many sets targeted at the high handicapper these aren't overly chunky or wide-soled. Mizuno JPX 800 Driver
Honestly, from a looks perspective I'd say the PRO versions look very similar to many companies' better players clubs and the JPX-800's still look more "traditional" than most game improvement clubs on the market.
I love the feel of Mizuno irons- so much so that despite being custom fit by Nike I'm still tempted constantly to go back and play my set of Mizuno MP-57's. golf clubs au
The only reason I don't is because I'm really not good enough for the MP-57's, but the feel of hitting them good is so amazing.
I think my overall opinion of these new JPX-800 irons from Mizuno is pretty clear. When you hit a couple shots pure and realize what "feel" really means and what you're missing with your current irons you're going to have some explaining to do with the old lady.
