JPX825 Pro suitable for a HCP 36 as new weapon of choice ?

Hi there,

I have been playing golf for about 1 year and 3 months now.
Using a second hand set of Mizuno MX950 irons (5-PW), MX 950 hybrids (3-4) and a JPX800 driver. I also have an Mizuno MX700 FW 3 but I don't use it at all simply because I'm no good with it ...

I'm thinking about buying new clubs ... so I was wondering.

Would the JPX825 Pro's be a good choice ? Or is my handicap simply too high for that at the moment ? I'm looking for a set of clubs which I can use for several years ... Still learning a lot ... and hoping to get a more consistent game.

I was thinking : JPX 825 driver (1), JPX 825 wood (1), JPX 825 hybrid (1), set or irons (5-PW) and a couple of wedges to complete the bag.

Thx for advice.

I would say the standard JPX, there are loads of SGI irons coming out in the new year, take a look at the Ping G25s they do look the dogs dangles...but always try and get fit properly, try all different clubs and see what the figures say, if you like the look of the 825 pros and hit them good, then why not....you might even hit the MP69s or Titleist MBs good...lol...good luck with search though...you wont go wrong with the JPX 825 woods though....

The 825's would be a great fit providing you get fitted for the correct shafts!

The heads are suitable for all handicap ranges, but you are likely to find that whilst the heads will see you through your journey of improvement, the shafts are unlikely to.

As you improve, you will likely need to change shafts.

As for the heads, they would be a great choice! The entire 825 range is fantastic.

Thanks for the advice but since I'm not a English native speaker, I'm a bit confused ...

Do you mean that the Pro's with the right shafts are a good choice ?
Or do you think I should go for the JPX 825 (not the Pro version) ?

In case you guys mean the JPX 825 I'm just wondering if I shouldn't just stick my MX950's then ... I'm not planning on buying new clubs every two years.

Thx in advance !

First - get the correct shafts
Second - Pick whatever head you like best

The 825 pro's are forged and will feel better, they will also grow with you as you improve.

To be honest : I like the look op the 825 Pro's A WHOLE LOT !
Wasn't entirely sure they would be fit for a beginner player like me ... but on the other hand, I'm also looking for clubs that can grow with me as I progress ...

So : first up is a fitting in a Mizuno local fitting center.

Then, I will see.

Would like to stick with Mizuno, that's for sure.

Give the JPX 825 a good honest try with a suitable shaft. I play off a 9 hcp. After using players irons I found I needed some additional forgiveness. Actually, I gave the JPX 800 irons a good workout and almost pulled the trigger, but I found a set of MX 200's for a great deal I could not pass up. The MX 200 are similar in shape to the 825 as opposed to the 825 Pro. I love 'em!!
If you watch the 825 Mizuno video by Chris Voshall, he is a better player and hits them beautifully - and it would appear workability is not an issue. I also play with 2 guys who use MX 1000 and are both 9-10 hcp.
Make the game easier on yourself, not harder.

I'll go and try out the JPX825 Pro's in a little while on the driving range.

Depending on the result (do I mess up every single shot or not) and the feel I'll decide on having myself fitted for these clubs.

Not really willing to buy JPX825 standards since they probably are clubs in the same range as the MX950's I use now (in that case I would like to wait en keep practicing until my game is good enough for clubs in the likes of the JPX825 Pro's).

I would go with the Pros - still plenty of forgiveness there - 20 years ago they would've been the easiest clubs in the World to hit - and they'll last you down to single figures and beyond
