I've gone from MP30s to MP57 and now after deciding that I needed something to help me a little more, I've gone for these JPX 800 Pros. I initially went with an open mind and tried MP53s and JPX 800s alongside these ones. MP53s were too similar to my MP57s for my liking. My bad shots were still bad shots. The JPX 800s werer fine and I certainly wasn't fazed by them being a cast club, they felt fine and were a little longer but not dramatically so as in some reports. The JPX 800 pros on the other hand looked good, sounded good and felt good. Having done the DNA analysis to get my correct shaft it was a case of hitting shots to find what I felt about the three choices.

First couple of outings were a bit fraught as I got used to a new shaft and to a new clubhead. However, after getting my rhythm and getting the feel for the club during the swing, it's all come together. These are more forgiving than my MP57s were, they do still punish a bad shot,but a slight mishit isn't too bad. My only concern is how I fill the gap between PW and SW. I used to use a 52° MP R gap wedge in my last set up. There may have to be a little thought as to how I solve that proble, but that can wait till the season is upon us and the conditions improve

I'm looking forward to trying to nibble away at my handicap this year, try to get down again to single figures. A lot of work needs to be done, but I think I've got the tools to help here. very happy with my choice. My main reason for taking these JPX 800 Pros over the JPX 80s was that I got a really good deal on a 4-PW set.

Several years ago I played MP60 with rifle pured and flighted. I'm getting longer in the tooth now and need some forgiveness.

I bought some TM Tour Burners last year but just didn't ever feel happy with them. They are clunky, awkward, unfeeling, and I had a propensity to really hook them, but I used them for a whole year.

So this year I went and got fit at a Mizuno demo day, and a JPX 800 Pro custom order with KBS shafts.
Played yesterday and was a little ragged getting used to the different setup and the different feel of the shafts. These are the first KBS shafts I've hit.

Today however, they started to come around and I hit some really nice greens, shots that I have not felt or seen since the MP60's.

These are great irons, and I think Mizzy has a winner with these 800 Pros.

What do you think?

The JPX-800 Pro are the first Mizuno irons I've owned and I couldn't be happier. I had mine made std. length and loft, +2 up. I tried the Project X and KBS but in the end went with the stock DG XP s300 -- a lighter weight shaft -- because they felt the best and gave me a higher ball flight.

They are a bit large looking but there's minimal offset and nothing but the face to catch my eye. I'm coming off i10s and CG7 Tours and in comparison these feel like butter and are far more workable. Easy to hit high or low. Draws are a piece of cake but fades, for me at least, are baby cuts so far.

I highly recommend these irons. They're easy to hit and misses are very friendly.

Played my first round with these today on a course I hadn't played before. No warm-up (couldn't be helped). Birdied the first hole. Hit driver, six iron to a par 5 (520) yards. Shot 75 cold with a new set of irons and had three birdies. Funny. These are just absolutely great sticks.

First round yardages seemed to be:

5 iron - 190
6 iron - 176
7 iron - 163
8 iron - 150
9 iron - 139
PW - 127

(Driver ss is 110'ish).

We'll see how these hold up over the next couple rounds, but I am pretty satisfied. Plenty forgiving, but kind to the eye. Look great in the bag, too. They didn't look like game improvement at all, just larger player models. They were a little longer heel to toe, which I like actually. Went through the rough nicely and shots sat on the greens even when they were flighted lower. The Project X shafts I ordered with them felt very stable through impact. Didn't seem to be the best compliment to forged heads in terms of feel, but provided a nice launch and didn't hamper the response. Flush shots were still easy to differentiate from bad shots.

Great irons. Don't think, just buy.

I have played mp30, 33, 57, 60 in the past, with limited time I can spend on driving range so I was looking for a set of forgiving game improvement set. A friend of mine purchased one set few months back and I took a few shots and it was really easy to hit and gain almost 10 yards. Went on and bought a set from the forum and I couldn't be happier.

At first, the thick top line is kind of distractive compare to what I used to play (cb-1005, mp33, j33b, mp60, etc) but after few rounds and I get used to it. Pull the shaft out and spine the shaft and it went even straighter.

Great club!!

like em sort of..........the clubs mass makes it difficult to gt through the ball on firm fairways....if the ball is sitting up no prob...but here in so cal most of our fairways are baked so a thin sole with low bounce seems to work better for me....goin back to mb or thin soled players iron.....the heads are massive as well

I've been playing with the MX-25's for over a year now and was looking to move up. The JPX 800 Pro seemed to be the perfect choice. The heads on both are identical in shape and size..you won't miss anything here. But, as far as soft forgings go, the JPX 800 Pro's are a harder off the face than the MX-25's. Also with the less offset, you have less give with JPX 800 Pro's. I can get by with a little slop on the MX-25..but this is not typical of the JPX 800 Pros..it is not as forgiving as the MX-25's. It has a much more penetrating ball flight but I'd say that has to do with stronger loft and the firmer forged face.
