  1. I just tried the RB Tour X ball, and I'm a convert. I choose the X ball for the extra spin which helps me on my drives. They are widely available at a reasonable price. The TXG video on the Mizuno ball was very helpful. I haven't found the dimple pattern to be distracting at all.
  2. I saw this spy pic. The Ultimate Driving Machine 5, or UDM5. Looks like it has a built-in radar system for ball speed and spin. Obviously, this shot was a Pull.
  3. I went with the JPX-EZ Hybrid 22* with the Fujikura SIX Regular shaft. The EZ is much bigger than the JPX-800 I had previously been using. As stated above, the club looks more like a fairway wood. I play it a bit further forward in my stance than my previous hybrids, and I'm getting a higher ball flight. While the Mizuno website says it can come with the Fujikura SIX XLR8 shaft, it seems that the XLR8 shaft is only currently available for the driver. The SIX shaft seems just fine for my sub-100 mph (driver) swing speed. I also went with the JPX-EZ Fairway Wood 18* with the same Fujikura
  4. Mizuno S5 wedges. Ordered with free custom stamping of up to 6 letters. NIFTY 50 - Homage to a classic Canon lens. DRIVE 55 - Homage to Sammy Hagar (not). STICKY 60 - How I plan to use it.
  5. This is the view of the 6-irons from address. MP-57 is next to the ball. The MP-25 is behind on the right. The 25's have a subtle satin finish while the 57 are polished to a mirror finish.

Biggest improvement for me has been consistency with distance. My mishits are going much further than with my MP-57s. With full, flush hits, they definitely go farther, around 7-8 yards on my 7 and 8 irons. It seems that the distance gains have come from a higher bal
  7. Update: I have 3.5 rounds in with the 5-PW and I've scored really well with them (including a +5 on a Par 71 yesterday!). Biggest improvement for me has been consistency with distance. My mishits are going much further than with my MP-57s. With full, flush hits, they definitely go farther, around 7-8 yards on my 7 and 8 irons. It seems that the distance gains have come from a higher ball flight as even with my longer irons, they haven't rolled far from where they land. I attribute the distance gains to a combination of a better shaft fit (XP 105 R300 versus Dynamic Gold SL R300) in ad
  8. New Mizuno MP-25s ! Got them home today during the Golden Hour. Had to take some pics... [attachment=2975920:New MP-25-1.jpg] [attachment=2975924:New MP-25-2.jpg] [attachment=2975922:New MP-25-3.jpg] [attachment=2975918:New MP-25-4.jpg]
  9. First Post! I’ve been following this discussion for months. Time to contribute. Two weeks ago, I got fit for MP-25s. They arrived today. These are my initial impressions. [b]Background[/b]: Devoted Mizuno fan since late 90’s when I picked up the game. My first real set of irons were T-Zoid Pros (loved them). Around 2010, picked up a set of MP-57, TT DG SL shafts, which I have been playing ever since. Recently, although I have been playing my best golf, I wanted more forgiveness from my irons, and I had a huge gap between my 5-iron and my 23* hybrid. The MP-57s reward you
