Thanks MPX, although it does mean that I can't have a set of 54's or 825pro/54 combo as I don't like the feel of the projectx graphite.
We don't offer the Orochi graphite shaft with the MP irons because of the head weight. It's a much lighter shaft that requires a completely differently weighted head. We offer with the JPX irons as it suits the head better.....and the type of players that tend to buy into JPX.
Mizuno uses a different weight head (lighter) for +1/2 inch longer shafts and another for graphite (heavier).
These all need completely different moulds......it's not a post manufacturing adjustment. Essentially like having another model within our line up. An especially big investment with the forged irons where the set up costs are infinitely higher.
Not a step that all of our competitors take.....most adjust the head weights using different badges post production.

Apologies for the 'upside down' pictures. Can assure they are the right way up on my iPad. Very odd.
Mr Voshall is taking on a couple more of your questions between Cokes at the BA lounge in Munich.

As stated loft and bounce work at a 1:1 ratio, but offset is more tricky. It's about +1.5mm or 0.003"per 2 degrees stronger if I remember correctly. Maybe not much, but definitely noticeable and one of the reasons you have to be careful when strengthening loft for better ball strikers.
I'd have thought only loft changes would affect bounce V, ie 1 deg strong reduces bounce 1 degree and visa versa 1d weaker adds 1d bounce....but I'm highly likely to be wrong as usual!? good question mate.
