TESTERS ANNOUNCED! Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons!


Recommended Posts

First of all thanks for this great opportunity.

My name is Lee I have been lurking in these forums for quite a while now and this has gave me the push to actually register.

I live in Liverpool, England, about a 45 minute drive from Royal Birkdale which is not just a Mizuno Fitting Centre, it's an all singing Performance Centre. Which is on my shortlist of places when I actually do get fit for new irons.

I play to an 18.0 handicap which should really be lower. I play twice a week but don't practice although I should because I have plenty of spare time that I waste.

My current irons are Adams Idea A7 OS with Grafalloy Pro Launch shaft in regular flex.I bought these second hand so I'm pretty sure these are not optimal for my swing but they were easier to play with than the Ping Eye 2 + with JZ shaft I was using but I was playing better golf with the Pings which unfortunately for me I sold.

I have never been custom fit before, and I'm sure it will make a big difference to my game, even mentally it will make a difference standing over the ball confident that everything about the club your about to use is right.

So to recap.

 

First name and home town           Lee, Liverpool,(England).

Handicap                                        18.0

Current irons/shafts                       Adams Idea A7 OS.  Grafalloy Pro Launch regular 

Custom Fit-yes or no                     No

Okay gang, this has been one of the best Test/Review Application Threads we've ever had here at MyGolfSpy!!!  Thank you all for your participation and for all the new members who applied, thank you for choosing to become a member of MyGolfSpy and we hope you join in on the Golf Talk!  We do have a good time here, that's for sure!

 

Anyway, enough of the foreplay, let's get down to naming our testers!!!!

 

After much deliberation and sifting through the nearly 600 applicants, the Tester Selection Committee have chosen the following MyGolferSpyer's to be custom fit for, and then test and review the new Mizuno JPX EZ Forged irons. 

 

oaks

 

RoverRick

 

chemclub

 

 

We think we picked three guys who will provide you with a thorough, thoughtful and professional analysis of what these clubs can do, and if they deliver on the promise of distance, accuracy and the legendary Mizuno "feel."  Can't wait to hear what these guys have to say!!!

 

Congratulations to our 3 testers -- we'll be hitting you up with a group Private Message shortly.

 

And to those who were not selected, not to worry - we have another AWESOME opportunity to review one of the truly unique additions to the 2016 product offering. Look for the announcement by the middle of next week. You won't want to miss it!!!

I was unable to post until now due to a GolfSpy issue (see attached photo far right on bottom for Golf Spy Admin's note to me).  Thanks!

 

Hopefully you'll consider my entry.  I'm still playing old Ping Eye @ with the square grooves.  I'd love a try at some new irons.  Thanks so much!
