Mizuno JPX800 Irons

Readers Digest version: Forgiving, Nice topline, great ball flight (with PX 6.0 Shaft combo!).

A very short backstory, went to get "Fit" for the first time since 2002. Hit the Mizuno shaft optimizer and decided to go with the Project X 6.0 Stiff (My avg Swing Speed on the optimizer with their 6 iron was 92-94.) 1/2" longer and 2* upright with medium sized NDMC Golf Pride grips. 

Hey All, my review on the "Game Improvement" Mizuno JPX 800 irons.  I've got the 4-AW setup...

Readers Digest version: Forgiving, Nice topline, great ball flight (with PX 6.0 Shaft combo!).

A very short backstory, went to get "Fit" for the first time since 2002. Hit the Mizuno shaft optimizer and decided to go with the Project X 6.0 Stiff (My avg Swing Speed on the optimizer with their 6 iron was 92-94.) 1/2" longer and 2* upright with medium sized NDMC Golf Pride grips.

FORGIVENESS is humongous with these clubs! Balls struck off center, bladed, thinned, toed, hosel rockets, and even topped still had considerable distance with "relative" accuracy all things considered. I missed a lot without a doubt, but I wasn't punished tremendously with mishits! It was nice to know I had something to play.

Feedback was nice! As mentioned before, the mishits were telling for sure, even with the heavier and stiff PX shafts. I could tell immediately whether it was toed or off the hosel etc. But when I struck something well, OH BABY it felt incredible! It was as everyone said, LONG, STRAIGHT and SMOOTH and I might rename them Grey Goose! Oh so smooth when well struck and man did they fly!

All in all if you're looking for a GI iron this should make your short list.  I LOVE these clubs but I think its really the combo of the shaft and these irons that really kicks.  Get a shaft fitting and you won't regret it.
