Is Mizuno dumping stock???


Recommended Posts

So... this probably falls under the category of adding 2 + 2 and coming up with 4-1/2, but is it possible that Mizuno has found a way to quietly reduce inventory of current stock in preparation for their fall launch of the new designs? I ask because I had been looking for a used set of JPX 919 Hotmetal irons in a "firm" shaft (my JPX 919 Forged are just a little too unforgiving for me) and found that an ebayer by the name of quickshipgolf has been auctioning dozens of "used" sets of JPX 919 irons (Forged, Hot Metal & Hot Metal Pro - all "Mizuno Condition rated 9.0") in a variety of shafts. They've had so many that I was concerned they were pulling some kind of bait-and-switch or simply selling fakes. Their reviews seems good, but we all know those can sometime be manipulated.  Anyway, I decided to take a chance and started bidding on the Hot Metal sets with Project X LZ 5.5 shafts. I had my bid limits so I lost out on 5 sets before finally winning an auction last Tuesday.

Now, the moment of truth! Will the correct set arrive?? Are they fakes?? Not only are they the correct model and they are (from everything I can tell) real, they appear brand spanking NEW!!! Not a mark on any of them - blades, shafts or grips! A range session also tells me they are real (and a much better fit for me).

So, is quickshipgolf being used by Mizuno to get rid of current stock? Did quickshipgolf buy out a Mizuno distributor? There are several more JPX 919 sets up for auction as I write this and, I'm guessing, more to follow.

Anyway, I wanted to share my thoughts.

Exactly! That's why I thought this could be new stock quickshipgolf is helping clear out.

My fitter told me that 919's were sold out. So your premise makes sense.

I don't know 100% but I highly doubt it's Mizuno using a burner EBay account.   It's most likely a retailer they had a lot of Stock going into the spring buying season and lost out on almost 3 months of store sales.  Now they are trying to move what they can to make way for the new line later this summer.

Just picked up my new JPX 919 forged irons from Club Champion. My fitter said he got a call from his Mizuno rep on Monday and said they are no longer selling the JPX 919s. They're having a little dead period until the new JPXs are announced this fall.

It's mostly due to the 919 stock all but being sold out.  Only thing that remains is a small supply of HM and HM Pro.
