Those are in two totally different leagues-

 

Just my .03 worth based on a few years Playin blades but to the person who would ask this question I would unequivocally and without hesitation say to go with the Tours-

 

A guy who is a blade Player doesn't even entertain that question and I mean no slight by it as the Tours are a world class iron and in quite a few Tour Boys bags-

 

Do yourself a favor Bro and go with the Tours!

 

You'll be very very happy?

 

All the Best,

RP

In the end, only three things matter~ <br /><br />How much that you loved...<br /><br />How mightily that you lived...<br /><br />How gracefully that you accepted both victory & defeat...<br /><br /><br /><br />GHIN: Beefeater 24

MP5 is slightly more compact. Otherwise, it's dead even.

 

Focus on finding the best shaft for you.

Another vote for the Tours.

 

Feel and performance were great for both irons. Trackman numbers identical. That satin finish is just gorgeous, though. Plus they made the 9i & PW nice and compact in the Tours as opposed to the larger, rounded shape found in the 5's.

 

Really can't go wrong with either. Comes down to visual preference more than anything.

Mixed opinions so far!

I will add my two cents worth......

 

Only hit the demo irons of both of these irons but the MP5 ticked more boxes for me, preferred the feel and could not fault the forgiveness I got from the MP5 either.

I certainly need to go re hit the 900 Tour as I really feel from my limited testing I have not given it a chance to shine.

I demo'd both quite a bit and went with the 900 Tours. They are so close that you are better off choosing on looks than performance, they are that close.

What's the opposite of a catch22? Can't go wrong ! I love how tours were designed using "h.i.t." to feel/sound just like mp 64 which in my opinion is the best feeling iron I've ever struck. Then you have mp5 with that little channel and chrome finish looking sexy as ever. You just know they feel sweet looking at em. Really a toss up. For me it'd probably come down to the simple chrome versus the busier badging and satin finish of the tour. When you're splitting hairs I usually go down to aesthetics

I've only hit the 900s off mats whereas I hit the MP-5s every round I play. However, I found the 5s slightly easier to hit and I think chrome looks much better than satin. They're really close though, so it's a matter of opinion.

The MP-5's are the classic Mizzy feel, the Tours are not. That said, it's impossible to go wrong, they're both fantastic sticks. Just can't beat that feel of nutting a Mizzy blade

completely different irons. Different looks and lofts. They are not comparable. So if you're deciding between the two you need to pick a category first.

 

MP 5's are blades. That's it. Blades are blades. If you're looking for any kind of "performance" look elsewhere.

 

JPX 900 is stronger lofted and much more forgiving. They did a fantastic job with these. They look much smaller than they are at address. I think it's the best Mid cap iron of the year

Chiming in as a non-Mizuno user...

 

To me when I think Mizuno I think of the classic chrome blades and forged cavities. They look awesome and the other stuff looks awful (IMO). Granted I've never hit the JPX Tours and they are in a lot of tour bags but if the performance is even somewhat close- I'd game the MP5 EVERY TIME! They look great! The JPX Tours are just blah to me. But I like chrome in my irons not satin.
