  1. just ordered through my club and hoping they're gonna ship before I go to Whistling Straits!
  2. [quote name='Spaulding S.' timestamp='1344827490' post='5458880'] [quote name='caller' timestamp='1344517088' post='5435994'] Does anyone have any experience with Mizuno custom shaft ordering? how is their turn around time and reasoable pricing? [/quote] I just ordered 800s with kbs shafts. 4 day turnaround and no up charge. [/quote] agree, although the stock shaft is DL gold XP, it is very easy to get them shafted with essentially whatever you want from Mizuno, I ordered mine with DG S300's but PX, KBS and Nippon's were available.
  3. [quote name='lumberman2462' timestamp='1344867989' post='5460898'] Scratch is great. I would suggest forged wedges rather cast. It's just a feel issue for finesse shots. [/quote] I love the Mizuno R12's. If you are willing to play non conforming, the older T10's can be had a a very reasonable price as can the Callaway Jaws series.
  4. [quote name='boycer11' timestamp='1344812718' post='5457180'] I have the i20 and would love to pick up the mp59s with some nippon 950s. Course I am a 14 handicap so dont think I am good enough. though I did shoot a 79 & 76 last week and only hit 4 of 11 fairways. I would love to have both sets. [/quote] how is it possible to be a 14 when you shot a 79 and 76? your index should be well into single digits
  5. I personally play the jpx pros and think that they are a great club. But I really like the Bridgestone J38 dual cavity back and the J40 dual cavity back. The J38's can be had for a very reasonable price on the popular auction site, sub 300??? and they supposedly hit very similar to the J40's
  6. went to golfsmith the other day to pick up a Mizuno hybrid. On the website they were selling for almost 50% off for 89 bucks. When I got to my local golfsmith, they were only selling them 59 bucks! Unfortunately they only had regular shafted clubs left and I needed a stiff. I went to the preowned section and found a minty club 22 degree 4h, but they were asking 80 bucks. I pointed this out to the manager and he let me have it for 40 bucks. Went to the range last night and hit the club. I'm seriously impressed and am wondering why there's so little love for the mizzy woods and hybrids.
  7. [quote name='displayname' timestamp='1336537169' post='4877652'] I would think the best option would be to change shafts and lie angles. However, before you do that you should go to a fitter or demo day with a Mizuno cart. Then you could hit both the 800's, and the 800 pros side by side with your specs. That should help you decide very quickly if it's really worth dropping the extra cash on a full new set. Because you are talking about a current line, you should have no issues finding places with the Mizuno carts/fitting system. You could hit both irons with the 1* upright, with the XP's, w
  8. [quote name='TheDarkOne' timestamp='1336494514' post='4872634'] I see a lot of work being talked about for the clubs, and a lot of thought about launch angles and such. At the same time you are a 16 handicapper? Playing off a 16 I might work on the swing for a while and try to get some consistency in my game, then figure out what clubs are right. If you put the work in and get down under 10, let's say close to 5-6, you might need an entirely different set of irons. [/quote] Sadly I don't have enough time to really improve on my game nor am I spending enough time practicing putting and ch

I've played both, and played just as good (and bad) with both. I prefer forged, but these darn i15s are just the right blend of size with more forgiveness that I'm sticking with them for the time being over TMMCs (forged). [/quote] ok got it. I'm not 100% confident about the lie. I know in Mizuno's, I'm at least 1 degree upright. However, I wasn't striking the ball well the day I got fitted and the fitter didn't have t

[quote name='Yellow Jacket' timestamp='1336491574' post='4872326'] [quote name='dk10438' timestamp='1336427079' post='4867720'] [quote name='leoh923' timestamp='1336425171' post='4867542'] No, forging is a manufacturing process, and will not, on its own, magically improve consistency. Getting your clubs properly fit, and working on your swing will improve your consistency. So, I suppose getting properly fit forged clubs may help your consistency, but that would be due to the fitting, not because they are forged. [/quote] you are misunderstanding my question. I know that forging is a pro
  11. [quote name='gents15' timestamp='1336475697' post='4870890'] My suggestion would be to have your current set bent a degree upright [/quote] I was under the impression that they wouldn't bend cast clubs like the JPX??? The JPX has been a great club for me and no doubt that it is long and feels hot. Prior to these, I was hitting the Callaway I-brids with a dynamic gold SL shaft. Although they hit fairly solid, my game steadily improved and the clubs started to look too big to me and they were launching too high, despite the DG SL's. So I went to the the JPX which really have been great.

  13. Hello, I'm a mid/high handicapper. Playing at about a 16 right now and am hitting the JPX irons and am planning on moving up to the JPX pros which are a forged cavity back. My question is this, is there really any advantage to going to the JPX pros? My reasoning was that I was hitting the JPX's too high (launch angle for a 6 iron was 22 degrees). I feel that this is putting me at a disadvantage on windy days since my ball is in the air for so long and it is difficult for me to make such large adjustments. The JPX pros have a little less offset and I got fitted to a DG S300 which is a lowe
