Popular Post DannyDips Posted March 3, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted March 3, 2021 I recently got fitted for a new set of Mizuno JPX-921 Tours and thought I'd share the experience, track improvement and give others a review of the irons. December 4th, I was fitted at Fairways and Greens in Knoxville, TN (https://fairwaysandgreens.com) by David Sumilus. They were my closest custom Mizuno fitter and I've always played Mizuno irons going all the way back to some MP-11s I played in high school. This was the first time I've ever been fitted for brand new clubs and if you can afford it I strongly recommend it. For me personally, I have the feeling that my golf game has leveled off to a point with my old equipment and if I wanted to get better I needed to get fit for some of the latest technology. My previous iron set included 4-PW of Mizuno MP-15s with DG S300 shafts. The fitting experience as a whole I strongly recommend, I got to try out the whole new Mizuno line and at least half a dozen or more shafts. In the end the set up that worked best for my game was the Mizuno JPX-921 Tours, upright +1, with Modus 105 X flex shafts. I will say when on the range, the moment we switched to the Modus 105 X shaft I hit about 8 balls in a row straight at the target with a penetrating ball flight. I couldn't have been more pumped to get them ordered after that. Fast forward 6 weeks to January 17th. (Yes, that's how long US custom orders are taking now 6 weeks instead of the usual 4 weeks, thanks COVID...) Everyone in the Facebook Mizuno Golf group knows this day as "Blue Box Day" and it didn't disappoint. The first thing I wanted to do was test them out but with wacky Tennessee weather it has actually been difficult to get out. Luckily for myself, I purchased a Skytrak last year and have an entire "garage golf" set up for practice. At least 3-5 times a week I spend an hour or so working with them and hitting shots. So after working with the clubs about a month and half I have made several observations. Shorter irons (PW-8I) carry distances have remained mostly the same, while Mid Range to Long irons (7i-4i) have increased in distance slightly (5-10 yards). Shot dispersion and shot shape have tightened and become more far more consistent. Mishit shots seem to have slightly more forgiveness than the MP-15 irons. This is a sample of a 5 iron with the JPX-921 tours. MP-15's carry was almost always 185 maybe topping out at 190. So far I'm beyond impressed with the Mizuno JPX-921 Tours. They seem to hit the ball straighter, with more consistent ball flight, and better carry distances gapping with the longer irons. I know some of the accuracy gains are probably not just from the new club face but having the correct length and lie for my swing. I'm super excited to start the 2021 Golf Season and once the weather improves I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on my continued progress with them.
