2020 WITB - Back to the Future!!

I've been playing the Mizuno JPX-900 Hot Metal for almost 3 years now and have been pretty happy with them.  I got them custom fit for me at +1/4" and 2* upright in Project X LZ steel shafts.  When you hit them, they feel great - when you miss, still really good distance, but the feedback to let you know you missed the sweet spot.

I sold my "old set" to my buddy who was just getting into golf for $100.  They were Taylormade Burner 2.0's.  As of late, I've been missing those clubs as I always got great distance, they were very accurate and felt like the ball just shot off the face.  I knew my buddy had upgraded his clubs, so I asked if I could buy them back?!?  No chance, he gave them to his son and he took them to college with him.  Dang...really missed them.  So that started my quest to find another set of them.

I picked some up on eBay 5-GW for ~$150 shipped.  I put them on the simulator as soon as I got them, doing side-by-side comparisons.  The Burner's were longer and had a tighter dispersion!

Hmmm, I seem to recall everyone saying that the Taylormade irons have jacked up the lofts, so I did a club for club comparison.  Nope, they're exactly the same from 4 iron through Gap Wedge.  Odd.  So I took them out for a round this past weekend.  It was like seeing an old friend again!  They felt great, shots were pretty accurate and man - the ball really goes!  I find it hard to believe, but I'm seriously considering putting these back in the back permanently and relegating the JPX-900s to the garage/simulator set.  I can't believe I'm saying that - but wow, I had forgotten how much I loved these clubs!
