In the end I took the 825 Hybrid with a stock stiff shaft and I am very impressed with the club. I would have liked to have it match the shafts on my MP 59's, I.e. the hybrid version of the Project X 5.5 shaft. I would even had paid extra for the option shaft but was not even given the chance, so Mizuno dipped out on some more profit and a happier customer. Please Mizuno do not put option shafts on your website if they are not available!
