I had both. Two really good irons and can't go wrong with either...my assesment.

I15- I had DGs 300s I'm mine wrx. Tight dispersion and very accurate. Probably the most accurate iron I have hit...and trust me... I have had them all!! Forgiving and easy to hit 3-PW...but they played a club to a club and a half short...wasn't willing give up the distance especially when I was ten feet short of the green on tight pins

JPX 800s- another great irons. These are very accurate as well..have the XP stiff shafts. Went with these for two reasons..I liked knowing when my shots are off because of poor striking... They are forged and a miss let's you know...I never knew the meaning of forged as I have always hit cast... For forgiveness...and I have hit bad shots with good results with these...and now know I hit it bad and it ended up ok...vs thinking I hit it good with a cast club...and it ends up short...and didn't know why

Hope this helps!

Have both, prefer the i15's. To me, the the i15's are more forgiving than the 800 Pro's - something about the tungsten toe weight I guess. If you can get past the offset, the i15's have a smaller profile too. The 800 heads look pretty big. The the one thing that I do prefer about the Pro's relative to the i15's though is the fact that it has less offset.

i've owned both. without question, JPX Pros. the i-15s are a very cast feel. i mean, a lot of clubs are cast steel, but for some reason, these felt really raw cast. you have to love the ping brand to love these.

the JPX 800 Pros are a soft forged feel and the ball explodes off the face. yes the clubhead is larger than others but you'll only notice it when you hold another club up to it. when you stand over the ball, it has minimal offset and inspires confidence with a players iron look.

definitely one of my most favorite clubs i've ever owned. and i've owned a s*** ton of irons.

I've owned both. Between the two I'd have the say the i15 is the better club. It's more forgiving and the feel was surprisingly good. It's got a nice top line and it's one of the most durable irons out there. Definitely check out different shaft options. I'm not a big fan of the awt but the kbs shafts could really make this set shine.

The jpx 800 pro is just a misplaced iron that really doesn't do anything really well. IMHO, the feel was not that great–it was a toss up between the i15 and jpx 800 pro. If you really want the mizuno forged feel, go mp53 or something else in the mp line. The jpx 800 pros were, although, a half club longer for me. The cavity's plastic chrome was just too cheap looking. From the top the jpx-800 pros are a big improvement over the previous mx lines. You can't see the cavity bulge in any of the longer irons.

I'd save the money and take the great deal's they're having on the i15s. If your going Mizuno, go with either the regular JPX-800 or the MP-53.

I have played both and I have the I15's in the bag now. They were just better overall and one thing for sure PING's hold up well..!

I would agree that they may not be the longest, but not the shortest. but they are very tight on pattern. Even toe/heel shots stay well online. Once you get them dailed to you and catch it right they feel as soft as most clubs. Again on the distance they are not the longest club made, but if your in the sweet pot they are good on length.

I use 1/2" over 2 up with ZZ65 shafts as far a setup.

I'm amazed out how many of you guys have owned both sets.
Amazed but grateful too as i have i15 and have been tinkering with the idea of changing to the JPX 800 pro's.

Distance wise they play the same to me as I took a degree off the 3- 6 iron on the i15's.

Although the ball does seems to almost explode of the face of the JPX's.

But after reading thsse posts I am happy to stay with the i15's. I like them a lot but was just wishing for a little less offset. Maybe the i20's?

I play the i15's and have compared both in a simulator. The JPX Pro's felt much harsher to me. No feel whatsoever. Distance per club was also better with the i15's.

this is a little surprising to me. I have played both and while I love the i-15s I have not had near that experience. Just shows that feel is an individual thing. For me the JPX-800 pros feel better and the feedback from off center hits is great. My best advice is to get fit for both and try to hit them. I think you will find that with all things being fit properly that you can then make a decision that is right for you.
