Hello Chris and Chad,

These ones are for Chris:
1. How has the reception and sale of the new EZ line been compared to your expectations? Seeing that the new EZ line with the orange and the black finish (which I love by the way) was a bit bold compared to the traditional Mizuno look. Do you think the release would have been more successful if you had gone with the traditional Mizuno style?
2. Does Mizuno have any plans on entering the putter market in the US again in the near future? Big fan of the MP-T series.

Chris, about 10 years ago a Mizuno 3 iron had a lie angle of about 57 degrees. Now it is 59 or so. Mizuno does offer to bend these as needed which is great for my MP 69 irons. The longest club Mizuno makes is the driver . It has a lie angle of 60 degrees. So a longer shaft has a more upright lie angle just a bit backward . Just 4 years ago the MP 630 driver had a 58 degree lie angle. Any plans to help those of us who don't fight the right side of the golf course on the lie angle side in drivers and fairways or are we doomed to play older model TM and Mizuno to be better fitted?

True Temper,

What problems(if any) did you run into when going from designing round golf shafts to a rectangular shaped hockey stick? Did it require a different method of laying the graphite sheets?

Chris: Mizuno is quite a traditional company in regards to looks, technology, brand identity and marketing. With all the advancements in club performance in the past 5 years such as adjust this, move that and design your own. I personally like hidden technology and appreciate aesthetics. Have your team of R&D and marketing guys felt pressure to conform or compromise core values to what's hot and hip in the current wave of the club and marketing scheme of golf? Thanks for taking time to share with us today.

I play the new mp4's love them. Replaced them with the mp33's. honestly toss up between the 2.

Chad- My question is how important is spined and frequency matching shafts to irons?

Chris- Q1 When ordering clubs direct to fit your specs are they spined or frequency matched?

Chris Q2 If not is there a way to do that from mizuno?

Question is for Chris Voshall,

What is Mark Crossfield like IRL? And follow up: Who wins in a fight between you two, you've got a MP-69 2 iron and Mark has a 56* wedge.

I'm also curious about whether Luke Donald is tall enough to get on all the rides at Disneyland.

Big Mizuno fan here btw, my mp-64's are the best irons I've ever owned, keep up the good work.


and yeah, I just wanted to be entered into the giveaway, I'm also a fan of free Mizuno swag....

I still have an old MP600 driver, thought I use a more modern JPX. Is there any plan for Mizuno to compete with the SLDR by re-introducing something similar to the MP600 and its Fast Track weighting system?

Also, I am curious what Mizuno uses to hold grips on shafts. It seems to be like a filmy rubber cement that rubs off so easily. I do a lot of regripping for myself and friends. I'd love something like what Mizuno uses instead of double sided masking tape. Getting old tape off is always the most difficult part of the process. What is that stuff? Is it a commercially available product I can buy?

It's been a good day if I don't fall out of the cart...

Mizuno: I am thinking of buying a set of jpx ez irons. I am a new golfer and looking for a set that will give me a lot of help. Being the Ez are a super game improvement iron will I have to upgrade after I become a better golfer or are these a good set for a more experience golfer as well? Thanks

Did your R&D Department have much to say about the SLDR Technology being reintroduced by a competitor?

True Temper...

As a long time fan of Easton..,, I've used their Hockey Gear for as long as I could remember..... What sets your Sticks apart from the competition and WELL DONE... Those sticks look SEXY!

Thanks ahead of time Fellas.... Awesome experience to have you folks on here answering questions!

[size=5][color=#ff0000][u][b]Finally Mizuno!!! Best of the Best!!![/b][/u][/color][/size]

[size=6][u][b]Questions for Chris Voshall[/b][/u][/size]. - Chris I think it is so fantastic that you actually make video reviews and explanations for the new Mizuno offerings year after year. I have several of your Youtube videos saved for reference. My question is very specific to my iron purchase for the coming year. I am 45 years old 8 handicap and playing the JPX 825 Pro w/Dynalite XP S300 shafts. Standard everything. Last year on a whim I hit a friend's JPX 800 HD which I did not hit when getting fit for the 825 Pros. I really liked the results from many shots from the 800 HD compared to my 825's. This made me decide to get new irons to make my game a little easier in the next month. My choices are as follows.

1) Stay with JPX 825 Pro
2) JPX 800 HD
3) JPX EZ
4) JPX EZ Forged

I have seen many ask a similar question many times but we never get a definitive answer. Please rank the above clubs in terms of

1) Forgiveness
2) Consistency in Regards to distance control
3) Launch

If you could take a minute to answer this, this would save me and countless others on here so much time, to settle this never ending debate that never gets solved. I know it could be different for everyone's swing, but just in relative terms from Mizuno, where would they rank. I have created a chart where you could just insert your answers to save you some time. Add any explanations,etc if you can!

[size=6][u][b]For True Temper:[/b][/u] [/size]How do the new XP 95/105 shafts compare to the old Dynalite XP shafts in the same flex. What differences would we notice with a change from one to the other.

Thanks guys!
