This is the kind of review I would love to see more of. Level playing field and the 825's come out on top. Thoughts?

This highlights how much TM really on there marketing department to creat interest and sales. Now we know why there were no Mizuno irons in the length list comparing them to Rocketbladz. Perhaps they should be called Rocketbull instead lol.

Interesting comparison which he did back up with real data. Makes you think though, how many people are taken in by the hype and bull that some manufacturers throw out there ;)

I knew that the lofts were generally jacked up but was not away of the shaft length difference - interesting comparison.

We've got some data from the R&D team (from robot testing) which backs this up.  Believe we're just checking what to do with that info.


When you take the loft and shaft length differences away, the head technology of JPX825 is at least the distance equal of the Rocketbladez.

Pretty clear why the JPX825 wasn't on the Rocketbladez comparison site.

You gotta hand it to them, they know how to manipulate numbers.

I have been keeping an eye on the lofts of various iron sets over the last 3 years, after I found that this was one of the reasons I was hitting an MX300 further than an MP58.  I didn't keep details of std shaft length, which would have been as useful.

For any other sad people out there, here are a few stats from my findings:

Weakest lofted 6 iron = MP67 at 32 degrees
Strongest lofted 6 iron = TMag R7 CGB at 26 degrees (7 iron is 30 degrees!).
     - Closely followed by our new friend the Rocketbladez at 26.5 degrees (7 iron is 30.5 degrees).

Out of the 5 strongest lofted sets, TaylorMade produce 4 of them!

Many 'players' clubs come in with a 6 iron loft of 30/31 degrees.  To be fair to TMag, this includes them! 
Game improvement irons are more around 29 degrees.  

Whilst switching from MP52/58/62/68 to MP 53/59/63/69, Mizuno kept lofts the same on 3 to 5 iron, but strengthened loft by 1 degree on 6 to PW.

I could go on, but I guess most of you are already asleep by now..........zzzzzzzzzzzz

Surely there must be some sort of guide to say what loft a certain iron should be and if it is not within the boundaries of that certain iron then it cant be the said iron 

Its like me sticking a Lotus badge on my Astra its not a Lotus but the badge says it is so therefore I now own a Lotus :D

I agree to some extent and think we have touched on this previously.  Why is one mans 6 iron another mans 7 iron?

Why don't we just see the loft, as we do on wedges.  Or maybe even iron no & loft, as some woods/hybrids do.

Does anybody know where/when the 'iron number' began its ever useful life?  Come on, enlighten us with some history......

No :)

While it is all a marketing ploy to claim more distance, I really don't get caught up in this type of stuff. You have a 170 yard shot, what does it matter what number is stamped on the bottom of the club that you used to hit the shot?

I have played with people who like to compare what club you hit and then boast they hit a club less with clubs that I know are way stronger lofted than mine. I just let them have their moment and move on.
