    Yeah, just bought these on a whim. I loved the LZ driver shaft, and was hoping the iron shafts would work the same for me. I don't have much for fitters locally here, and I just don't swing the same on a simulator indoors.



    The 130X just work for whatever reason, not sure why, so said why not on the new wedge set.



    To be honest, I got a deal on the 900 Tour/T7's i sold, so got out in a wash which was nice. They were just gorgeous, but they are not MP5's.



    The T7's have that "it" factor for me so far, never seen a better looking wedge behind the ball, can't wait to get new 3 wedge set in play with C-taper's.



    I will be shocked if I don't order a 9-P again in the 900 Tour this winter with the 130X to try again. I have a $300 GC coming from work for doing health screening, so will be "free" in my eyes.



    Mizuno did the 9-P RIGHT in this set, amazing looking, more compact.

    I don't know how to explain it, but they seemed to be. I don't see how a 6.5 is to weak for me. I am about the size of an average LPGA Tour player, then again the 130X should not work for me, but results are all that matters.

    For what its worth, i went from c-taper 130x (4years with them) to the px LZ 6.5 3 weeks ago and im loving them. I havent lost any distance and they feel 1,000 times better and easier to swing. I havent played in much wind yet so cant comment on that. I will say nothing touches a well struck c-taper in the wind. I have noticed the LZ spin a touch more when they land, 9i spins back about 3 feet where my CT130x never did anything except hit and stick. Still nothing like X100 where i can spin a 9i back 25 feet.



    Most importantly though the LZ do not want to go hard left. They really fight a hard hook even when i try, they just go up and draw but never the crazy left miss i could hit with C-tapers occasionally.

    Crazy! I remember reading your post in the LZ thread, part of what sold me on it being a good switch. On course results are telling me "no".



    I may just spin the ball a little too much to begin with, may be why these work for me, and low spin driver heads.

    Well, pretty much finished up.



    The 900 Tour experiment was short lived. What it told me? The MP5's may be the the ultimate iron, not sure what I am looking for, I will not find anything that exceeds the looks, playability, and feel. I am stuck with 130X for now, oh well.



    The SubZero and Oban Hashimoto combo is sublime, found something in my setup while hitting the 816 DBD, so put the SZ back in play yesterday for 36 holes, and it is not coming back out.



    On the T7's, played the original ones I had, and loved them, but only got a 2 wedge set, and they matched the 900 Tour's, so dumped all and have the T7's with 130X getting delivered Tuesday, will go right in. I have been playing the MD3's, and still love em, but the Mizuno's look and feel better.



    Not much else to do, 3w and hybrids are going nowhere, have brand new backup's for both. I sent my back up Tank #7 to Continental for a little re-do, not a fan of the silver on the "Works". I really like the 2016 TPX ball also, stocked for next season.

    I never tried Ctapers in wedges, but i can tell you that PX 6.0 are extremely good in wedges. I've tried quite a few wedge shafts and PX just work really well for me.

    Can't wait to get my MP5s with Ctaper S+. Should have them in a week or so.

    not coming out of the bag again (5's). It took 18 holes away from these to just make me love them even more.

    New ones came in yesterday, look sweet with the c-taper, finish is almost a match. I was kicking around ordering a 900 Tour PW with the 130X to try em again, but starting to think I may just order a 46/6 T7 (yes, the PP funds are burning a hole).

    Have you played tapers in wedges before? I'm curious to try it.

    Would be interested to read your review of the wedges if you provide one. Thinking i might get a set of these for next season. Right now I jump back and forth between SM6 kbs 610) Ping Glides (Kbs 610) and my old trusty mix of SM5 gw, Mizzy R12 sw and Sm5 k grind 60. The mix wedges all have PX 6.0.

    I have not, but it was time to try, have tried several other wedge shafts, nothing seemed special. I like my MD3's with DG W shafts, but have been chomping to try Mizzy wedges, soon as i saw the T7's, was happening. I was pissed i did not try the Tour's with 130X, so don't want the same remorse on the wedges..



    Having fun trying some new stuff out, will play Friday or Saturday, will report back.

    Those pics of the Mizunos and iBlade make the Jpx 900 Pro look delicious!



    How do they compare on forgiveness and launch?

    Well that's more complicated than it looks.  It all started because I haven't been completely satisfied with my equipment.  Nothing new right?  So in WRX fashion as always I considered many options.  I went down the modus road for a while in various sets which ultimately led me to the 120TX modus in the iblade.  I blade looks way better and feels better over s55, i can say that coming from s55.  So iblade with 120TX is in the bag right now, I like it a lot.



    All good until i saw the jpx 900 tour come out and started seeing Warrick lovin on it.    I was disappointed when his 900 tours didn't work out.  But that got me thinking and I decided to test it out as best I could.  So I went and got the 900 tour, forged and later mp5.  I had the modus 105x in the 900 tour initially and the 105s in the 900 forged.  And I hit them against my iblade on the course over and over and over with prov1s.  Forged was longest at times but had larger dispersion laterally and front to back, so those were out.  In those combos, tour and iblade were close, with 900 tour-105x  being slightly longer, both good dispersion, but iblade edging there, both pretty even over all....



    So after Warrick ditched the tours, and was lovin the mp5 and c taper.  I went and got the 900 tour with c taper 130x and put the 105x modus in the mp5.  So after hitting the 105x in the 900 tour against my iblade I could compare the head of the mp5 and 900 tour that way.....so again went and hit on course, many many balls, prov1.  What I found was the c taper and 900 tour was more consistent, had  longer average distance over my iblade.  The mp5 with the 105x was on average behind my iblade, worse dispersion.  Having now hit the mp5 and 900 tour with the same shaft against my gamers, I would give it to the 900 tour.



    So out of all that messing around I can conclude for me, that the 900 tour is a great head for me and that the c taper 130x gives me great results.  My only option now is to shaft up an iblade in c taper and order a set of 900 tours with c taper and compare the two.  They both look and feel great.  Looks at address going to iblade, feel going to 900 tour.  900 tour has a look of more offset the way the neck transitions to the face, not sure on actual offset, but visually looks to have slightly more offset.  I was getting on average about 7-9 yards more with the c taper 900 tour combo. Now on occasion did I hit them the same distance?,  Yes, but more often than not,  probably 80% of the time I saw better results with c taper.  I am going to stick some sensicores in the c taper when I get them in hopes they won't give me any joint issues....



    As far as forgiveness and launch for the 900 tour and iblade.  I blade wants to get up faster, probably has higher moi, and more spin.  Not that any of that is bad.  900 tour wanted to go forward quicker than iblade, and launched slightly lower, slightly less spin.  That's me with no monitor, and with different shafts in each.



    BTW, I can second that for me, px lz was kind of dead or blah.  Just didn't get out there for me, I tried the 6.0 hardstepped and 6.0.  Just didn't do it for me.  I think  modus does a better job with that kind of shaft....



    Also, thanks to Warrick and j13 who have been talking to me about alot of this stuff...



    Sorry for the thread jack, but Warrick wanted me to post.  Thanks!

    Deuce78, Warrick, really great information!



    I'm playing Mizuno MP-5 with Nippon NS Pro 1150 in stiff and thinking to try 900 Tour with other shaft.



    What 6-iron SS do you have?

    Do you have Mizuno numbers for me?



    I'm around 85-4-4-5-5, Hcp dropped from 4.5 to 2.5 due iron play and am tinkering between Nippon 105 Stiff and X-Stiff.



    What do you think or can you make proposal?

    Are you looking for something different from 1150? In flight, spin, stiffness, etc?

    I'm playing Mizuno MP-5 with Nippon NS Pro 1150 in stiff and thinking to try 900 Tour with other shaft.



    What 6-iron SS do you have?

    Do you have Mizuno numbers for me?



    I'm around 85-4-4-5-5, Hcp dropped from 4.5 to 2.5 due iron play and am tinkering between Nippon 105 Stiff and X-Stiff.



    What do you think or can you make proposal?




    Anything from me is just going to be based on what I like.



    I would go c-taper 120s in the Tours based on what you have now.



    As for stiffness, for me, as stiff as possible in irons, so for the Modus, would say X.

    Those pics of the Mizunos and iBlade make the Jpx 900 Pro look delicious!



    How do they compare on forgiveness and launch?




    Well that's more complicated than it looks. It all started because I haven't been completely satisfied with my equipment. Nothing new right? So in WRX fashion as always I considered many options. I went down the modus road for a while in various sets which ultimately led me to the 120TX modus in the iblade. I blade looks way better and feels better over s55, i can say that coming from s55. So iblade with 120TX is in the bag right now, I like it a lot.



    All good until i saw the jpx 900 tour come out and started seeing Warrick lovin on it. I was disappointed when his 900 tours didn't work out. But that got me thinking and I decided to test it out as best I could. So I went and got the 900 tour, forged and later mp5. I had the modus 105x in the 900 tour initially and the 105s in the 900 forged. And I hit them against my iblade on the course over and over and over with prov1s. Forged was longest at times but had larger dispersion laterally and front to back, so those were out. In those combos, tour and iblade were close, with 900 tour-105x being slightly longer, both good dispersion, but iblade edging there, both pretty even over all....



    So after Warrick ditched the tours, and was lovin the mp5 and c taper. I went and got the 900 tour with c taper 130x and put the 105x modus in the mp5. So after hitting the 105x in the 900 tour against my iblade I could compare the head of the mp5 and 900 tour that way.....so again went and hit on course, many many balls, prov1. What I found was the c taper and 900 tour was more consistent, had longer average distance over my iblade. The mp5 with the 105x was on average behind my iblade, worse dispersion. Having now hit the mp5 and 900 tour with the same shaft against my gamers, I would give it to the 900 tour.



    So out of all that messing around I can conclude for me, that the 900 tour is a great head for me and that the c taper 130x gives me great results. My only option now is to shaft up an iblade in c taper and order a set of 900 tours with c taper and compare the two. They both look and feel great. Looks at address going to iblade, feel going to 900 tour. 900 tour has a look of more offset the way the neck transitions to the face, not sure on actual offset, but visually looks to have slightly more offset. I was getting on average about 7-9 yards more with the c taper 900 tour combo. Now on occasion did I hit them the same distance?, Yes, but more often than not, probably 80% of the time I saw better results with c taper. I am going to stick some sensicores in the c taper when I get them in hopes they won't give me any joint issues....



    As far as forgiveness and launch for the 900 tour and iblade. I blade wants to get up faster, probably has higher moi, and more spin. Not that any of that is bad. 900 tour wanted to go forward quicker than iblade, and launched slightly lower, slightly less spin. That's me with no monitor, and with different shafts in each.



    BTW, I can second that for me, px lz was kind of dead or blah. Just didn't get out there for me, I tried the 6.0 hardstepped and 6.0. Just didn't do it for me. I think modus does a better job with that kind of shaft....



    Also, thanks to Warrick and j13 who have been talking to me about alot of this stuff...



    Sorry for the thread jack, but Warrick wanted me to post. Thanks!




    ****! Thanks Deuce. That's a pretty comprehensive review. Yes, true to WRX fashion!



    I'm between staying with a more blade-like iron and swallowing my pride and moving towards something with a bit more forgiveness. Being a lower spin guy, the only gripe I have with some "distance" irons is that they just don't hold greens for me in summer when things firm up.



    Coming from iE1's with SF i110's and a set of iBlades with LZ 6.0's & AMT S400's that I didn't like, I've got a few sets on the radar right now; the Srixon 565/765 combo, Mizuno 900 Forged/Pro combo, or Callaway Apex 16 CF16/Pro Combo. I like more forgiving longer irons and more player-like short irons, so the way many manufacturers are making sets that are more easily mixed makes it easier to have a combo set. I just need to go and get fit for the correct shaft, but I am thinking of the C Taper Lites in stiff flex.

    I swinging really on the smooth side and die to arthritis hips problems I'd like to test shaft which are a little lighter and where I need to work a little less. I tried already graphite (orochi tour spec 90g Stiff), was ok but Steel gives me better dispersion. That's why I tend to 105S then I can drop -10g, but I'm not sure due to my SS.

    I'd say the 105 modus x soft stepped, or stiff hardstepped. Also you can put inserts in them to help with joint issues. You could also look at steelfiber i95 stiff maybe softstepped as well.

    Really, really happy with every club in the bag right now. Good day with the new wedges, hitting the DBD really well, consistent small fade, love the Oban Hashimoto.



    No more testing of anything needed, bag is set and ready to go for the fall and next spring.



    I just need to see how the #7 redo from Continental looks, if it goes in the bag, still a #7 Tank either way. I like both insert.

    Wedges and irons FIRMLY planted in the bag, along with 3W and hybrids.



    I can't stop from driver testing, just seems easiest swapping heads and such. I took out the M2 and 816 DBD Saturday, the M2 had a little too much shaft for me , but played a 70g X in my 815 DBD fine for a while, for me the 816 DBD was the easy winner with better ball flight, distance and dispersion. I know it is not apples to apples with a different shaft, but did not even seem close to me. I had already ordered a better shaft for me for the M2, but that head is just "big", so dumped the M2 already, going to try and pick up an M1 430 head to go with the KK Tini coming today, just to try something else. I seem to do better with more compact looking "deeper faced" heads.



    The M1 430 was the best #'s for me at a driver fitting with mid launch 66g S shaft, so may as well give it a go if i can find one reasonable.



    #7 Works Tank came back with dark matte gray head, sight lines added, black shaft, new SS Pistol GT in black/blue - absolutely love it.

    Oh heck, one more driver test (nothing else left I am even interested in after this). Another nice weekend of weather ahead.



    This was the combo that won in my driver fitting (surprisingly). M1 430 9.5 with KK Tini Silver 60S, have the shaft, head on the way.

    I am not ever testing a TM driver again, or anything other than a ball for that matter, always disappointed, and now this one will cost me for some unknown reason.



    Get the 430 M1 head this morning, hit the driver 3 times today (on the face), pull it out to try it again on 18, and there is a dent in the toe on the crown (WTF!!!) It is sitting in my Silencer bag with the stock head cover on.



    Did it dent from hitting it? It surely did not hit anything, that I know for a fact.



    Felt like the M2 anyway, like ****.

    I have a dozen Truvis on the way to test out. I have never played anything but ProV1X and TPX (last 5-6 years).



    I have become more and more comfortable with Callaway and Mizuno, and prefer to keep my equipment choices between the 2 presently. I hope I like these.



    One of the guys in my group has been playing them lately, seem to perform well for him.

    No misconception that anyone cares about my updates, but I get so **** bored working early lately, just monitoring this thing back to health.



    I am over the M1 430, got it on the BST, doubt it sells, may try and send it in for warranty. No worries, just loving the 816 DBD and Oban, so much that I grabbed a 9* head to try out. This driver does everything I need and is as long as anything I have hit, love the looks and the feel.



    I did buy a set of Z945's yesterday morning, but they were only $360 new, so just something fun to bash in the net this winter. If they get here by Thirsday, may be able to get a round in ( high Thursday - 72, High Saturday - 46, ****!!)



    I did play the Truvis yesterday and think I like it, between it and the new Kirkland ball, should be able to swear of TM 100% once I go through the stock of TPX I have. It was an odd round at a different course, had trouble getting used to green speeds, was 8 over through 11, then played the last 7 holes 3 under for 76.



    T7's are my purchase of the year along with the SS Pistol GT2.0. I am way less excited about the new SZ hearing it has graphics on the crown (hate that to no end). I can definitely see myself with this same bag for next season. I am excited to play today, season is about over....

    76-76 was a solid finish to the season this weekend. I don't keep an official index, but guessing I moved to a single digit this season. I do have tee times for Wednesday and Thursday morning to try and get 2 last rounds in, high's are in the 40's for the weekend.



    Definitely be playing the Truvis or Kirkland next season TPX and TM are out.



    I did not think I could love my 3 wood anymore than I do, but it was just stellar yesterday off the tee box, club is just money.



    Best buys of the season:



    Pistol GT 2.0

    T7 wedges

    Nike FI Premiere golf shoes



    Biggest regrets



    Trading SZ to try TM M drivers

    not ordering 900 Tour's with 130x Ctaper



    Time to get the net set up for the winter and bash on the new Z945's. I figure if I sit and thump a 945 4 iron all winter, anything will seem easy come Spring

    Yep, looks like today and tomorrow is it. It looks like I will be lucky enough to test a few last things over the last 2 days.



    Z945 set is in for today's round, will have the Marxman Tank and 9* 816 DBD head delivered today, so those will get a shot on the final day tomorrow.

    Nice analogy. That is what has happened several times this season. The 5's have never been out for more than 18 holes. I feel like 18 holes with a set of irons tells me what I need to know, or at least if they need more testing. I planned on takin 2-3 clubs to hit, but **** it, put the whole set in, see how they are.

    Oh ****, did not expect these irons to be this spectacular. Holy sh!t!



    Amazing feel, spot on distances with my 5's, S300's were pleasantly surprising, great ball flight, nice and heavy. These 945's are the real deal. A pure steal at that price, definitely keepers. The 9-P look better than the Mizuno actually.



    I am not saying they have taken the spot, they do get to go again tomorrow for the final round of the season, which is more than I can say for anything else i have hit. If nothing else, pretty solid backup set. The v-sole seems to work well for me, took a bit shallower divots today.



    I hit 8 iron on 1, 3, and 4 to 15ft, 6ft, and 12ft respectively and was 2 down through 4, made a few dumb mistakes, lost a tee ball, still a solid 75 (3 putt also).



    I could grab either set and just go. I did not bring the 4 iron, never had to hit 5 today.

    Srix's have been getting a lot of press as of late. I may have to resist the Titleist urge and check them out.

    Pleasantly surprised, never thought a chance on something challenging the 5's.



    Watch TGW in the coming days, may drop back under $400.



    I get one more round in with em today, then weather drops off the cliff.

    Hi Warrick, didn't you follow up on 900 tours? I put the trigger on 900 tours with Nippon Modus 105 X and LOVE them. I'm coming from MP-5 with Nippon 1150 S. They are also superb but love the Modus shaft more!

    I sold em after 18 holes, wrong shaft for me. I can't stop thinking about how good they look. If I ever dump this M1 430, going to buy 1-2 clubs with my shaft and test again. They flow so nicely with the T7's, and just loved the look of the 9-P, which is what i would most likely try again...



    I may even list my 945's on the BST to try them again. It is the one thing I tested this year that i can't stop thinking about.
