I have had a bit of a disaster dealing with Mizuno and was hoping for some help. I initially ordered a set of Mizuno JPK 919 Forged left handed clubs from American Golf in Leeds on the 29th September and was told 10 days. I was then told 10 days later that it will be another week due to Mizuno not having the grips I requested. American Golf then got bought out 3 days later, I was advised that the new supplier contracts would be sorted ASAP and even spoke with Mizuno and was initially told it would be best to wait. SO wait I did. Then last week I was eventually told of the difficulties in negotiation between American Golf and Mizuno and both Mizuno Golf Europe (via Instagram) and American Golf advised me to reorder the clubs from another stockist. Therefore last week I went to Leeds Golf Centre another Mizuno fitting centre. I then re-ordered the clubs on the 15th November and Leeds Golf Centre advised me that no issues were reported when they ordered them. Then I got a phone call today from Leeds Golf Centre advising me that they chased up Mizuno and were advised that due to stock issues affecting only left handed players the clubs would not be ready until the 20th December.
Complete nightmare. Basically the hashtag #nothingfeelslikeamizuno could not be more true in my case

These things happen sometimes especially with difficulties AG purchase have on their hands.

Years ago in 1989 /1990 ish. There was an eight week lead time for stainless steel ping eye 2s and if you wanted the beryllium copper version it was much longer. The wait was worth it though as you received premium golf clubs, a small sacrifice maybe!

It's always a shame when things go wrong after forking out for a new set of bats - It is a repeated theme here though that purchases through AG always take much longer than other online retailers and/or Mizuno Pro shops - I had the same experience with my JPX900 irons a few seasons ago - Also Mizuno are a smaller (but better) club manufacturer, so stock is limited (even more so for the leftie I'd imagine?) - Hope you wait for your new gear, it'll definitely be worth the wait ...

Your problem here is AG, not Mizuno.
They went into administration in October. They went bust basically.
And they probably owe Mizuno a load of money.

Unless I'm reading the thread incorrectly then the common problem is Mizuno not the 2 different stockists?

Ordered from AG, AG told OP to reorder from a different stockist.
Ordered from a different stockist, OP told that Mizuno didnt have the component parts.

LGC were the last stockist to have an issue due to Mizuno not having the required grips which isnt AG's fault (as much as everyone likes to slate them).

I personally have never had an issue with AG but im well aware that others have.

Anyway, have LGC and Mizuno supplied you with your new bats yet?

AG have done this for a number of years, they're just not very good at it! - Seriously though, at the risk of repeating myself, unless you need one of AG's trade in deals, history shows that you're more likely to encounter delays with AG than other online sources or your local Pro - And yes, I am talking from my own experiences with a number of purchases with AG ...
