  1. Shouldn't these be reviewed by a mid to high handicapper? I bought the Ping's and they feel amazing, they replaced my Callaways… I'm getting my handicap down with them. Thanks for the content.

  2. Wow James. I am so happy to see this video. Some of these irons I would not have put into this category and you did. Gives me hope that I can use some of this technology and not be way over my skis in terms of fit. Glad to have watched.

  3. Coming from old technology of 2004, testing a set of Cobra F8 and F9 One Length irons really made a difference. Even my not so well placed shots feel sweet off the face, and they are a very straight hitting club. I ended up with the F8s, due to the fact that I got a 5-PW, GW set for under 300 bucks. Was there much of a difference between the F8s and F9s? A little, the F9s were better, but a new set at 800 bucks compared to an on sale price of 284, I think the choice is clear. I'm happy, my scores are happy, and my wallet is happy.

  4. The p790 are not forgiving. Ha e a set and perform well, as long as it’s on the dead center of the dead center of the face. I am a 9 handicap. And struggle hitting long irons consistently .

  5. I'm a new golfer and currently have an old set of Titleist Acushnet irons, mid 70's I believe, I picked up for $20 at a yard sale. I can't really afford a set of new "brand name" irons and was hoping for some advice on if they are ok for a beginner or would a newer set of cheaper irons be better?

  6. The Mizuno JPX line is amazing. I am gaming jpx850 forged for a few years now and love them. I would love to try the 919 forged and the 919 tour irons. See if they are better than the 850's.

  7. I am coming back to golf after an absence of 12 years, I am 60 years old, after viewing yours and other club reviews i am stuck between the Ping G410 (always wanted a set of Pings) and the Mizuno JPW , any advise ??

  8. I purchased the Mizzuno 919 HM irons at the beginning of the year. I was previously playing the Taylor Made R9's. While the R9s were very good when I was playing 3 times a week, when I could only play once or twice a month they became very, very difficult to hit. I am now 54 (old) and again don't get to play nearly as much as I would like. The Mizzuno HM 919's are a pleasure to play with. They are very forgiving and are easily a club or two up in distance. What that means is I previously hit the Taylor Made 9 iron 125 yards, the Mizzuno 919 will easily travel 135 to 140 yards. TM 8 iron 135 yards, Mizzuno 8 iron 150 yards, TM 7 iron 150 yards, Mizzuno 7 165 yards, TM 6 iron 160 yards, Mizzuno 6 iron 175 yards, TM 5 iron 170 yards, Mizzuon 6 iron 185, TM 4 iron 180 yards, Mizzuno 4 iron 195 yards. With that distance your confidence goes up and in turn you hit the ball more consistently. The big separator for me is you have less miss hits, and when you do have a miss hit the result is amazingly different. When I miss hit with the Taylor Made the result was catastrophic. When I miss hit with the Mizzuno the result is not a great shot but it is rarely catastrophic, just a missed green or something. This is the forgiveness part, I play with a group that averages 3 or 4 rounds per week. I however only average 1 to 2 rounds every 30 or 40 days. My lowest round in the last 10 months was 82 at Black Horse GC in Houston TX. the South Course. I consider it very challenging. These clubs have allowed me to play more consistently in the mid 80's only playing 1 to 2 rounds per month. I've been playing for 30 yrs now and that stat is amazing. My mid 80's scores have everything and nothing to do with the Mizzuno irons. My down fall is in my chipping and putting. If I played even twice a week these irons would have me in the 70's easily. I know this because I did it with the Taylor Made's but I had to hit  balls at least 3 times per week.

  9. I purchased a set of these irons. Upgraded from mp 54. I increased the lofts by 2 degrees on each club. These clubs are great for me. They do everything you said in your video. Thx

  10. James- As usual, your video is very good. I have a question. I am nearly 64 and shoot in the high '80's to mid '90's. My biggest issue is with my irons. I have Taylormade M4's with graphite shafts. My son, who is a very good golfer, told me to avoid steel shafts as they are heavier and my swing speed is relatively slow. I don't like the clubs as they are very inconsistent and don't have a sweet spot that works for me very often. You appear to have only steel shafts on the game improvement irons. Would changing to that type of shaft help or hurt me, in your opinion? Thank you.

  11. I just traded in the Cobra F9 Speedback for the Mizuno 919 Hot Metal and could not be happier with my decision. These irons inspire a ton of confidence and are so easy to hit. Yew!!!
