The JPX-800 is a great all-rounder
If you are a fairly decent player and can shoot in the 90s or below then you really ought to give these some serious thought because they have it all. Looks, forgiveness, feel and distance, if you want more than that then you are just plain greedy. I haven¡¯t hit many clubs that can combine the four key factors that decide many a golfer¡¯s purchase as these. In fact I¡¯m not sure I ever have, the Mizuno JPX 800 XD Irons is a great all-rounder and should develop into one of Mizuno¡¯s most fondly remembered models.
In a fiercely competitive sectorMizuno JPX 800 have delivered a fantastic iron that I am sure will stand the test of time. It does what all it¡¯s rivals do but just a little bit better and if this is the direction that Mizuno are going with their JPX line then sign me up for the ride with a one-way ticket.It¡¯s not too chunky and retains some player¡¯s iron qualities but the top line is slightly thicker than an MP iron. I actually liked the balance of the club head design, fitting in between an MP and a game improvement very nicely. This is a game improvement class club but as I said before, that doesn¡¯t stop it finding its way into the bags of some very low handicaps.
Feedback is good and you will love the shots that soar away into the next county via the sweetspot. Mizuno have retained that lovely sweet forged feel in the JPX 800 XD Irons and it makes it a pleasure to play. Factor in the ease of that playability and you have a real winner on your hands. The level of forgiveness is great and these are just fun to hit, over and over again.
I enjoy writing golf club reviews and feel it¡¯s a good test of a persons creativity, because you can only say phrases like ¡°generates some serious spin!¡± a limited number of times before you wear it out
