OFFICIAL FORUM MEMBER REVIEW - MIZUNO JPX 900 IRONS

Recommended Posts

If they fit your game and allow you to play the way you want want then who cares what number is stamped on the bottom or what the lofts are!

 

Glad to hear that you found a set that's working for you

I wish the lofts weren't a little jacked - there are other brand/models more jacked, but we've all beat that argument to death. Purely a marketing ploy that taps into players ego...and I bought 900F's in the end, so I've been called a hypocrit by some. When someone asks me what I hit I feel like I'm deceiving them by answering. OTOH, some have more jacked clubs than me, some less. The bottom line is what's stamped on the bottom doesn't mean anything anymore, but some folks don't realize that.

Didn't have my best ballstriking day with the 900 Tours on Wednesday but it just reaffirmed why I love these irons so much - the predictable miss.

 

Shots toward the toe or a little on the face still flew well and only lost a little yardage. No crazy jumpers.

 

Just love having a modern looking players cavity iron.

Has he won more majors than regular tour events? The guy is clutch.

I know and a friend of mine who's a good instructor said earlier this week. "I'd like to see him win setting other than a US Open."

 

Are you kidding. So I texted him tonight asking if that was enough to be impressed.

You're the “Brooks Koepka” of MGS! You're down to a 1.something handicap after getting your irons on here, and Brooks gets his and wins 3 majors... Just hit the gym and bulk up, and I'll start calling you “Brooksey”!!!!!

I remember when I first saw Mizuno irons--it was a long time ago, although I can't remember exactly when.

 

They were always impressive looking, and then Faldo pushed them over the top big time.

 

A lot of guys seem to adjust them upright, but for me, they're irons that don't need to be adjusted flat.

 

Also, a 2005 (I think) Mizuno Fli Hi knocked a vintage Wilson 1200GE 1-iron out of my bag as my driving iron.

 

Anyway, those JPX 900 Tours look like yet another worthy successor to the tradition, more like MP clubs than previous JPXs,  and I've never seen a bad review on them.

The article on the 919 tours mentioned a new finish that will wear better than the finish on the 900s.

 

I took some pictures of my 900s to show why Mizuno might have been unhappy with the finish. It's barely noticeable up close, but a perfectionist company like Mizuno probably wanted to improve on it.

Oh no doubt. They've held up really nice!

 

Probably need to get the lofts checked at the end of the season, especially since I have to hit off mats at the range

I would throw these into the legion of legendary iron status. Among the following I think it's fair to say that the JPX 900 Tours who were selected by former Nike guys and off-contract golfers as their iron of choice are as good as anything ever made.

 

Maybe I'm a little nuts but I would absolutely throw these in the likes of:

 

PING Eye 2

MP 14/29

Tommy Armour 845

Titleist 962B

Callaway Big Bertha

They really have been a "Major" boost for Mizuno 😁. But in all seriousness, I love my JPX 900 Hot Metals but I do wish I had gone for the Forged. Oh well there might be testing coming up soon 🤔😁😎

      Hi folks,
      I’ve been told several times by pros that OEMs offer a refinishing process for their clubs. I’m looking at getting my MP4s refinished at the end of the season but can’t seem to find a contact for Mizuno in Ireland that knows about this (or is willing to tell me over a sale), does anyone have any advice or alternative options to this. I don’t want to change clubs as I really enjoy playing these but they are starting to wear.
      Thanks in advance
      Richard

      This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! 
      Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review
      A little background
      Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
      I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
      The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
      Eye Candy (aka Looks)
      First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 

      I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot! 

      Grip
      The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other. 

      Insert:
      People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.

       
      Overall:
      I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
      I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
      Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
      Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!

      Hey all, 
      Anyone bought one of Vice's stand bags? The barrel of my bag is about to die, have been eyeing these off... But I hate buying something I haven't seen in the flesh (?) before. My favourite bag was from a gone bust company called Lind Golf, but can't find a bag with as many features. 
      Unfortunately not heaps of pictures of the Vice bag that aren't dolled up and taken from a romantic angle.
