Mizuno JPX 919 Iron Family

Recommended Posts

I just got fitted for the jpx 919 hot metal pro.  I actually went in to be fitted for the forged irons but were blown away by the feel, look, and performance of the pro.  KBS tour stiff shafts, 1/2 inch long and 2 degrees upright.  Definitely sexy beasts.  Went outside at their range on a cold (37 degree) Indiana day and they still felt like butter.  Very controllable flight (very slight draw) but was still able to hit the fade on command.  Can't wait to get them next week and for the weather to break but for now its simulator golf.

Welcome to the club! Exactly what happened when I went to a fitting thinking the Forged would be winners! Mine arrive tomorrow.

Went to the local pga store hit and hit all 3 on the Foresight, the Regular hot metals were the best for me, it wasnt a fitting though so that could change, they all feel great and the hot metals were long and wicked straight for me. Attached are the 7 iron stats for one of the better shots I was hitting.

Overall I was seeing about 10-15 yards more carry and much higher shots...Not sure if I'm ready to pull the trigger, I have more self improvement to do first, but these are high on the list if I hit some handicap goals by end of season. 🙂

Posted this earlier somewhere but I was hitting the hot metals today and I think I'm in love. Hit the pros too and they're both magical.

Jealous doesn't begin to describe my feelings toward you right now.

If you look at the sole and address pics, it’s not that much. Address is what we really see all of the time too.

Mizuno always makes fantastic clubs.n Its hard to go wrong here. They always have such amazing feel to them. DEFINITLEY get fit and also request gapping. Adjusting for gap between clubs will pay dividends on the course PLUS provide you with data what distance you hit the clubs without having to spend hours on the course and range.

I love the look of these things. Now if only my local club champion would contact me back so I can get a proper fit that Golf Galaxy probably wont be able to do since when I first wanted to demo them I was switching out the shafts from the cart myself lol Would love to see what they do with a higher spinning ball.

I tested out the forged vs tour. I have to say they feel hot off the face vs the tour. However, I love the shape of the Tour and consistency. So I ended up ordering them. Now they just released Hot Metal Pro which apparently if I read correctly have less offset than the forged. May be a great in between?

I’ve thrown the hot metal pro into the list I want to try. Not a huge fan of offset but haven’t really seen the lineup in person yet

I can show you how to update your handicap in your profile, if you need help with that, because with those numbers, it doesn't look like a 24, or won't be for long anyway.

Thanks for all the input on this thread, really good stuff.

I was thinking the same thing haha. 24 handicap with that speed, launch, spin, descent angle. I wish I had that.

I feel your pain with the inconsistency! However, I will say that short game is the key. I played in a 2-man scramble this past Sunday and didn't hit one single straight drive, but I was able to help with chipping and putting. Tied for 2nd

Look at the side-by-side pic I posted. The Sub70 639 CB is on the left, and the HM Pro is on the right. There is very little offset in the HM Pros.

HM Pros beat the forged in my fitting and the feel difference simply wasn’t there. Tighter dispersion, and consistency. But, as they say, “6-to-1, 1/2 dozen the other.”
