JPX825 vs. JPX825 Pro vs. MP-H4

Hi all,

I am considering to replace my MP53 4 iron with some more forgiving iron (I prefer iron to hybrid in this case). On a good day I hit my MP53 OK, but on bad days I would like to hold something more forgiving in my hands. So, there might be several options to choose from: JPX825, JPX825 Pro and MP-H4. Has anyone hit these clubs and can compare them (for example, JPX825 vs. MP-H4, or other combinations)? What are Your thoughts on such replacement?

I got fitted on JPX 825pro last week
I did have a try on JPX 825 and MP 59 but JPX825 was my favorite. In the middle of the 3 tested irons the JPX pro felt most comfortable and I think I can play them for years. JPX825 would be ok as well but maybe next year I get a little better and need to buy again new irons (that would be great for Mizuno)
MP59 was interesting but I had more miss hits at all and would need a lot of training time before I could play them like I want to.

MP-H4 are just long iron replacements and my fitter told me to choose JPX Fly Hi because they feel very similar to my JPX pro order. Long iron replacement should be as much similar as possible to your iron set.

Edgaras; I was lucky enough to get to hit an MP69 4 iron, 825pro 4 iron, MP-h4 4 iron , all with same shaft, side by side, with a 4 iron lofted hybrid that matches the 18* I currently use. I felt I wasn't consistent enough with the 69, and even when I pured it, I didn't get that "up, up, and away" flight I was looking for. The hybrid was too high and too left, balooning flight. The 825pro worked well and if I were looking to purchase 825pro's, I would carry that 4 iron. However, the MP-h4 was SO EASY to hit, gave me the perfect launch, a natural progression up from the MP69 5 iron. The sound and feel, compared to the 69's, will take some adjusting to, but I will get used to it for the flight I'm getting. I wished I had an MP53 to add to my trial, the rep thought it would be a perfect fit for me, and then a 3 iron in MP-h4, but he did not have a 53 to demo. I may have to ebay one before purchasing MP-h4.

I have played the pros for most of this season, my 4i is relatively easy to hit,but today I demoed the H4 6i and it felt soooo easy to hit that I am thinking of switching.

I just did this test this past weekend myself hitting the 825PRO, MP53, and MP59 5 irons looking for what irons would be the best long irons to mate with MP-64's. MY findings are:

825PRO: Easy to look at, large head, easy to hit but hit BULLETS. Visually I felt like I was hitting a 3.5 iron because the flight was so low.

MP-53: the same head size as the 825PRO. Felt great, easy to hit, BUT hit WAYYYYYY too high. I was hitting the 5i MP53 higher then MP64 6i Program 130. I felt/heard the leading edge catching on the mat so I didn't like that at all.

MP-59: This was the winner for me. I felt the head size was the same as the MP-53, I liked the thinner topline as well. I was getting the ball flight I was expecting from a 5i. The sole/leading edge just slid over the mat.

I didn't hit the H4 because I can hit 5i fairly well. I would use the MP Fli-Hi in the 2, 3, & 4 iron. I like them better then the H4.
