***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    I think the titanium forgings are a miracle, I've owned multiple generations and can't imaging going back to old school one piece steel. Completely respect that some people feel differently though


    That being said, i was quite shocked that they dropped the traditional CB. The market share for the traditional CB is getting smaller and smaller (see Titleist AP2 vs CB on tour) , but still it seems Mizuno MP lineup needs to have a CB in the lineup. Alternating every other release cycle between multimaterial and one piece might be a good compromise.

    I think they might of dropped the mp cb because the 910 and 919 tour was more more popular on tour.

    The SC model died because it was only slightly more forgiving than the MB. And now with the MP20 line, the MMC offers everything the SC did with more forgiveness and a bit more distance due to the stronger lofts.

    The HMBs feel great, better than the 919 forged imo, but not sure about forgiveness?

    So the HMB feels better? I figured the 9 and pw do, but what about the 6 and 7 hollow body? I’m injured right now so I can’t demo them.

    I think they do but I haven’t really hit the 919 forged much at all. I had the 900 forged in the bag for about a year and really liked them but I’ve been fighting some back issues and got rid of them. Good luck with our injuries.

    Comparing a cavity back iron feel to a hollow iron feel is tough. The HMB feel good however to me they feel springy. Feedback is more muted. The Forged are more crisp feeling compared to the HMB while still feeling soft. Feedback is more direct or harsh if you miss bad which like I prefer.

    i am a big of mizuno irons but they are really starting to lose me. i always thought they should stick with the mp line and stick with what makes them so enticing. all of these different lines from mizuno geared towards distance and forgiveness takes away what makes mizunos so great.

    the majority of golfers need forgiveness. Why would you limit yourself to a small piece of the pie? I see you're a 3 HC so mb/cb irons are probably more your style but if Mizuno took the miura approach then they would sell way fewer sets. It just makes good business sense to cater to the majority AND minority as opposed to one or the other. Why not make a great feeling blade and some solid forgiving clubs? As a beginner I can't play blades but I'm still able to get a superior feeling iron compared to most other GI irons. Once I progress to an iron that caters to the better ball strikers then you can bet that Mizuno will be on the top of the list to try because they helped me get to that point.

    all of us need forgiveness. golf is a humbling game and i don't mind a bigger sweetspot. but i don't think mizuno made a name for themselves with "distance irons" such as jpx hot metal irons. "hot metal" isn't something that mizuno is known for.

    i also think mizuno already makes some of the most forgiving cb's. the head length always seems to be longer than comparable cb's from titleist, taylormade, etc. they certainly don't make the thinnest toplines and their offset is pretty noticeable.

    Mizuno the brand, maybe. Mizuno the corporation, well, they want to make money and the market for GI clubs dwarfs that of blades. It'd be like asking your best player to take a huge pay cut to stay with the team. Possible, yeah, but realistic, hmm.......even Tom Brady lost his patience with that.

    Exactly this. Chris Voshall has said on more than one occasion. If Mizuno was only able to make one iron, it would be the JPX Forged, as it fits the widest range of golfer of any club in it's lineup. He didn't pick one from the MP line.

    They have their sales meeting on 7/13. I’m guessing we should see pictures in the beginning of August. Probably early September release

    All i know is the mmc 20 knocked it out the galaxy. Size, looks, forgiveness and distance? Might as well throw a wig on this set.... im in love and im buying a ring.


    P.s. i forgot to mention these are the softest irons i ever had... and you know what they say.... its true.

    I went from the 919 tours to a MP20 combo set HMB/MMC and could not be happier. They go higher and I cannot slice or hook them from out of trouble as well but overall just better for my game

    How do these compare to the HMB as far as forgiveness? I’m also playing at about a 14 hcp. I think I may wait for the JPX line.

    I've hit both... mmc much softer at the short iron end 7 8 9 P... also for a smaller iron.. everybit if not more forgiving as hmb. Ive also felt and hear that hmb is not ment to be more forgiving as hmb. Wierd i know but i think it's true. If anyone has a descent swing... as long as your not a complete hacker... if youve ever been wanting to play a club as close to a blade as possible but with no stinging and more forgivness the mmc mp 20 is in my opinion the best clubs for that ive ever experience. Very happy with them.. tottal packages.

    I’ve played the JPX forged and the HMB in full sets. The JPX are much more forgiving imo. Now like the above post said, the MMC is rather forgiving too. I will have my set for awhile. I feel they are basically perfect. I just wish they had a touch more bounce.

    Sorry about that. The MP 20 MMCs. They look like a players iron but have almost the same forgiveness as the JPX forged. My miss is low on the face and these perform great on shots hit a couple groove low.

    I play the MMCs and I like them a lot as well. I'm a 5 index and a pretty good iron striker. I will definitely say to hit em and get fitted first as a 14. I've definitely noticed some loss of forgiveness from my previous irons (Ping I e1). And they move the ball much easier than the Ping (which could be trouble for a double digit). But yes they are great clubs.
