JPX 825 driver, what loft to go for ?

I'm buying a JPX 825 driver but i'm unsure what loft to go for, i'd say i was somewhere between a 16 - 20 handicapper. I can strike the ball well and hit fairly long, its just i'm not consistent.

What loft would you say its best to go for ? 9.5, 10.5 or 12 degrees ?

Its £70 to be fitted for woods at our local golf centre which is a Mizuno fitting centre, i don't think its worth the extra expense as i already know that i need a stiff shaft as i was fitted for irons recently and i have quite a high swing speed. With things like a driver and 3 wood the lie angles can't be changed anyway and the standard length on the driver feels fine in hand, i just need to know what degree angle driver to get.

I agree with the others you should either get fitted or ask your local dealer to tape up some clubs so you can hit them.  I looked and hit a 650 recently.   My observations were the 9.5 feels like it has more loft than you expect and the Orochi Stiff was not all that stiff and the version on the JPX has a softer tip from memory.

Not to confuse but this is why fitting is important to get the right club.

i bought a 10.5 when they came out, from a 9.5 G20,Ping are notorious for their lofts being highter than stated on club, and Mizuno fairly accurate, i found the 10.5 very easy to hit and very straight, but after the honeymoon period i found i was a lot shorter on distance, borrowed a 9.5 and got most of the distance back, great club the 825, not as long or as consistant as my Covert though...lol

I recently bought a JPX825 driver in a light shaft and a loft of 10.5*.  It is such a good fit for me, coming from another brand in a 12*.  The positive thing about the higher lofts (as opposed to the 9.5*), for me at least, is that I tend to keep the ball in the fairway more often.   I agree with being fit, if you're able.  BTW, I don't think one can talk about loft without also discussing the shaft as they work in concert within your particular swing.

Well the more loft the less side spin. But get fitted to be sure.
shaft is just as important

Shaft is MORE important than loft when it comes to launch angle! ;-)
