  1. Been playing Mizuno for 15 or so years now. Played MP 30s, JPX 919F, and now MP20 mmcs. Loved my MP30s (still have them) and I'm absolutely in love with my MP20s. For me, the JPX model wasn't great for me. I prefer the MPs. You really can't go wrong with Mizunos irons. I also play the ST190 driver and it's fantastic as well.
  2. I'm playing to about a 3 index now and I ditched my 4iron for a 9 wood this year. Best decision I've made. I also added a 7 wood and it's now my favorite club in my bag. My 9 wood flies about 185. Soooo much easier to hit than a 4 or 5 iron for me.
  3. Both great clubs. It comes down to which turf interaction you get along with best. I play the MMCs and love everything about them.
  4. Truth is there is very little distance in all those clubs you mentioned and anything else out there. You're talking a few yards here and there. You seem to be asking questions, but already have the answers in your head and not listening to the correct answers...which are lessons first and foremost, move up a tee box and enjoy hitting wedges into greens instead of woods and long irons. Hate to break it to ya..but there is no magical 3 wood out there that will increase your distance and dispersion. Happy hunting;)
  5. I've lived in Florida my entire life and I've played for 30 years. I've always kept my clubs in my car and never had any issues with the heat effecting my STICKS. However, I had my car stolen a few years ago...I got my car back, buy not my clubs. 12 month old set of fitted Mizuno irons, a brand new fitted TS3 Driver, my bag, balls, shows, range finder, etc. SUCKED! So don't worry about the heat.. worry about thugs.
  6. Exactly... Guy takes the time to open thread, then post in it. Grow up kiddo
  7. winner winner chicken dinner
  8. Hard to beat the MMCs. If anything, maybe you should be looking at a shaft change.
  9. Why would anyone want to swing over 115 mph? I guess if you're trying to compete in some long drive competition..but if you just want to play good golf, there's no need to swing that fast. All in my humble opinion ofcourse.
  10. The most surprising thing to me of this entire survey, is that 18 people have just 1 brand throughout their bag. That's some OCD weirdness right there.
  11. The MMC with the KBS $taper is $$$$$
  12. I know my angle of attack is steep and maybe its more a technique issue than bounce, but still curious if he's suggestion makes sense.
  13. Ok so I know what bounce is, but nit exactly how it works in regards to sand play. I was playing Friday and the course had some bunkers with little sand and hard pan underneath. I had some disastrous bunker shots where I could feel the could skipping off the hard sand and sending screamers over the green. My caddy told me I should ditch my sand wedge (Jaws 58 degree 10s) and get something with more bounce. Would more bounce help with that issue? In my mind, more bounce seems like it would make that shot even worse. Thanks for any input
  14. JPX 900 F were the first set of irons I was fitted for and bought brand new. I struggled with them for 18 months as I didn't want to dump them since I has invested so much time and money. I even took them to a Mizuno demo day and was "refitted" for a different shaft. Better, but just never got along w them. I actually had my clubs stolen so I was forced to rebuild my bag. Started with my old MP30s and my ball striking immediately improved. Fast forward to today and I'm playing a set of MP20 MMCs I bought off Ebay and couldn't be happier. I'm down to a 2 handicap. I wouldn't listen to too many people on the internet that tell you things like "Indian, not the arrow", "those are some of the best irons ever", etc. We are all different, and I can tell you as a good ball striker, I just never got along w the JPX 900F. Doesn't mean they irons aren't great for others, but not for me and maybe nit for you. I'd go back to what you're comfortable with, work on your swing and enjoy the game.
  15. I'm a 2 handicap and was playing to a 5 last summer. This winter I added a 7wd and 9wd. Both game changers for me. Could I hit a 4 iron decently? Sure. But I would flush one in every 5 hit. My 9wd is stupid easy to hit. Now I carry 4wd, 7wd, 9wd. Im only 46, so my buddies give me s*** for the 9wd, but who cares if your scores improve and confidence in hitting a 190-200 yard shot.
  16. I did the same. So much easier to hit and launch, then a long iron. I used to dread the long par 3 over the water, but know I look forward to using my 9 wood. I've shot my lowest scores ever with these 2 clubs added to my bag.
  17. I was looking for a 7 wood last month and decided on the Tour Edge EX10...it's quickly become my favorite club in the bag and gives me a great 220-225 yard club that is super easy to it. It seems fairly compact to my eye.
  18. As for OP question, I played MP30s prior to a "fitting" for more forgiving JPX 900 Forged. Struggled w my ball striking for 2 years, but since it was my first fitting and first brand new set of irons, I decided I had to make it work. I now play MP-20 MMCS and I'm playing the best golf of my life. Also, if you can hit MP30s well, you wouldn't have any issues with new blades or maybe better yet an iron like the MMCs.
  19. My course was punched this week. Here in Florida, they typically punch before summer and again towards the end of summer.
  20. Just get the MMCs and enjoy the perfect iron.
  21. Went from M2 HL to M4 HL and the M4 was everything I liked about the M2, but more forgiving.
  22. Good to know. For me it was a complete shot in the dark as I couldn't find many 7 woods with stiff shafts. I saw the EX10 listed with a Tour AD shaft and it was only 70.00. Figured I've heard good things about both TEE and the shaft so I pulled the trigger.
  23. Just got a EX10 7 wood and took it out today for 18 holes. Super easy to hit and used it on a lot off the tee on shorter par 4s and an approach on a par 5. Launches high and easy to work both ways. Already one of my favorite clubs in my bag and fits perfectly between my 16.5 4 wood and my 4 iron.
