Had a fitting done the other day, came down to JP 900 Forged and P790, wanted to hit the MMC but the demo clubs were all lent out to other customers getting fitted. Will go back and hit the MMC hopefully this week, has anyone hit both of these? What are your thoughts? Thanks

    I play jpx 900 forged now. They’re nice clubs but if I could buy again I’d go mp 18. I’m currently being fitted for mp line now and will trade in. Mmc are very nice. Pure

    I demo’d the P790 7i (30.5°) with the original DG S300 against the MMC 6i (28°) with the original DG S300. Despite the loft differences, my carry averages with these clubs were 1 yard apart.



    P790

    CHS 76.2 mph

    BS 110.3 mph

    LA 21.1°

    Spin 5000 rpm

    Peak 33 yards

    Descent 47°

    Carry 159 yards



    MP-18 MMC

    CHS 76.6 mph

    BS 111.0 mph

    LA 19.3°

    Spin 5085 rpm

    Peak 31 yards

    Descent 45°

    Carry 160 yards



    Love the feel of the Mizuno MMC’s but you can’t deny the distance gains of the P790’s. Despite swinging about 5 mph off my normal swing speed I was pleased with the results. Dispersion went to Mizuno by a couple yards. I have both sets in my arsenal with Modus 105 Stiff.

    For me the P790 7i, CHS was 90, Peak was 39, descent was 47.5, Spin 5975 rpm, carry was 186, what concerned me was the occasional 195-200 shot.



    Like I said I only hit the jp900 forged and had similar numbers, was avg a few yards less, but the consistency was better. Guess I really need to hit the MMC to figure this out. Forgiveness I will give the slight edge to P790, but not by much.

    The MMC was more consistent distance wise for me. There was a 4 yard difference longest to shortest. The P790 was 6 yards. Once the weather improves my testing will consist of hitting shots from knarly lies in the rough with 7i to PW to see what happens. Having played Mizuno irons and wedges for over 12 years I am leaning towards the MMC’s. The P790’s feel nice just not quite Mizuno forged nice.
