    Why did you switch in the first place? I hope you kept your old irons, just in case...




    I felt I need it a smaller head then the JPX-800, when I was playing really well I had Titlelist 755 Irons which had the smaller head. Then got used to the JPX 800. (nothing feels like a Mizuno)

    So tried out the MP-18 MMC before and during the fitting tried the JPX-900, AP1, Callaways, TaylorMades, but the numbers still were not better with the MP-18 MMC.



    There is less room for error on these clubs, so i need to make sure am striking the ball no swiping at the ball.



    i figured it will take me a few rounds just to get the feeling and confidence I can hit my shots.




    Random question as I noticed you have since changed your signature from yesterday. Did you get fit with the MMC and Steelfiber combo or did you find you were hitting the MMC better with shaft X and then decided that you liked the JPX's so much with the SF you reshafted the MMCs with them? If so, we could have a winner as to why they aren't working.


    When getting fit we tested different shafts.. The steelfiber was still getting the best numbers. Spin rate, smash and dispersion.

    So yes it was reshafted with the steelfiber..

    I'm probably just impatient.. Next 2 rounds I should have a better feel for them.

    The MMC is not a blade. You should play those ok.



    You should focus on consistency, not distance. You may have in your mind that you want to hit the same distance or more with the new set and that is hurting your swing and messing with your head.



    The loft may be different. Think that you have to use a club longer for the same distance and practice it. Forget the old irons distance and work on the new.



    This happened to me with MP18SC. comong from M2 I really struggle at the beginning. Now o understand it’s not the same and I’m loving those Mizunos.



    Also, very important! How much weight difference there is between your new shafts and old ones? This can be the most difficult thing to get used to


    Shaft is the same one.. If anything I can really turn on them.

    Update: after 3 rounds with the new irons am finally hitting them solid.. They are flying high and straight.. Great feel.

    I just made the switch to MMCs from a GI set of ping g's. I am not the most consistent ball striker but I find the more players club to help me.

    The extra feedback makes it clearer to me how I screwed up and what I need to do to fix it.

    I also stay out of trouble when I put a really bad swing on them. With my Ping G's a misshit will go almost full distance and into the woods. With the MMCs I will still be in play. I haven't had a single blow up hole since I bagged them.

    I was going to suggest getting the lies, lofts checked.

    I had a custum set of Mizuno’s made once, and the place I got fit does not let a set of irons out the door unless they check the lofts and lies.

    They my set needed tweaking, they were not as ordered.



    Good luck with the new sticks!
