JPX 800 Pro gap wedge available?

Hi there!

Is there a gap wedge available with the JPX 800 Pro line? I see images of such GWs online but don't see the option on Mizuno's website. (I did search the forum for an answer but got tired wading through the results)

My current set-up is:
Irons - JPX 800 pro 4-PW;
Wedges - JPX 50, JPX 54, MPR12 60.

I love the swingweight & feel of my pros and find myself gravitating towards the PW for most distances inside 100.

An option would be to replace my JPX 50 and 54 wedges with a Pro GW if available for mainly hacks around the green. (Although not sure what the sole grind is like)

Other option would be to replace 50 & 54 with R12 54degree but I do like the dynalite shafts and JPX pro head combo.

Finally, is it possible to increase the swingweight of the JPX wedges?

Thanks in advance!

I believe the jpx 50 is the one that essentially "matches" the jpx 800 pro's. It's not forged but is made from a softer steel I believe.

for whatever reason, they are not offering the gap wedge in Europe, but they do in North America.

This has been raised before on the forum...

Apparently the Northern American market are quite happy to use whatever wedge completes the set, whereas the more discerning European customer preferes to specify his own wedges from the vast array of MP options available...

I use JPX Pros and bought a JPX 50° wedge as my gap wedge earlier this year. Prior to that I had used the MP R10 52° to fit between my PW and 56° SW. I have to say, even though it's not a forged club, it's as good as my old MP R10 wedge. I haven't noticed any difference in feel around the greens. It's very easy to hit of almost any lie.

I do like the JPX wedge and agree it is good from any lie and it also has the dynalite XP shaft which suits me. However for this indian, I prefer a slightly heavier head, and the PW is just perfect head/shaft combo feel wise. Hopefully there is some club builder on here than can advise me with adding weight to the JPX head. Thanks
