Better In Simulator Than On The Course
June 8, 2021
A little context. I'm 47 year old male that normally shoots between 75-80 and play 4-5 rounds per month. After testing many, many irons, I decided on the Mizuno JPX 921 forged irons. They felt great when tested, but when I got them on the course the ball flight was too high for me [I normally don't have issues getting the ball in the air, these just accentuated it]. If this is an area you struggle with, I would think these would be helpful. A second nuance that didn't fit my preference was the heaviness of the club head vs the rest of the club. As reference, the irons had a 120 stiff shaft, so a bit lighter than say a dynamic gold s300. These are not meant to be negative comments, but rather my personal preferences.
ProsThe irons look great and the ball definitely jumps off the face when appropriately struck. You can't go wrong with Mizuno irons, this model just wasn't the one for me.
