I think I've done all of my purchases for this season!

The 22º JPX 900 was the best hybrid I've hit since my 18º Nike Sumo hybrid but I couldn't give up my 3 iron for it. There were days I simply couldn't hit the hybrid (usually the issue was hitting them very thin) but I got the chance to try a 19º CLK and after spending a couple of weeks searching for the JPX, I woke up on a Sunday morning to see I had won a bid for a CLK on eBay. Unfortunately it didn't really pan out on the course but last week I finally found a reasonably-priced JPX with the right shaft. With two heads, two shafts and 8 loft/lie settings, maybe there's one good hybrid for me somewhere in there. :)

I can't wait to try the 900 out on the course but there's a slight, white problem with that. :D

When I hit 50 3 years ago I had to admit defeat, my beloved 32's, 37's and restored 14's went on the display racks in my Mancave with my guitar collection. I went for a full set of JPX 900 - 4 to P + G, S, L . It has given me a new lease of life. Long, straight at the hole and forgiving and to me the Chromoly feels very nearly as nice as grain flow. Don't give a stuff about working the ball anymore like I did as a teenager off 2 in the 1980's with TP9's with S400's. Age catches all of us up eventually :)

Have a gorgeous Miz Bettinardi C-01 honeycombe face blade from 2007 but can't use it, I am a crap putter. Bought a lovely mid mallet Odyssey white hot Rossi and putting much better. Problem is it just doesn't look right in the bag :-( So went on ebay and found a MP T105 forged mid mallet for 45 quid. Good nick and will clean up and polish up lovely :) Anyone out there got an original headcover I can buy ? Thanks folks :)

Mizuno ST 180 9.5 Tensei CK Orange, Fairway Wood - JPX 800
Just upgraded my irons to the JPX 919 Forged. Went 5 - GW and got the SW and LW in the T20 wedges.
Absolutely tremendous. Had a custom fitting at Gleneagles and was recommended the DG 105 R300 and 1/2 inch longer than std. Collected them this morning. Previous irons were JPX 800 pro with DG S300. The new forged are around 8 - 10 yards longer but dispersion is much tighter. Looking forward to getting out in the course with them once these gales blow themselves out.

When the weather allows me out these clubs are another step to heaven, as you say nothing feels like a Mizuno, I feel like a god with them.

On the subject of balls ...
Costco (in the UK) are now selling their Kirkland Signature ball (previously only available in US) - I got a pal of mine to get me a box (24x) which works out at just over £1 a ball :eek: - Pretty good price for Pro V performance imho...

Hi Paul,

Sorry to change your subject..!

But I was looking through some of the older threads from 2019 as I'm looking to change two of my wedges and I noticed that you had posted this reply on a thread about wedges,

"Good point MrK20 - I recently changed my wedges to a set of S18 (Black IP) & I am very impressed with them so far - Feel is great & I can generate plenty of spin, especially full shots with the 49* - Being Mizuno they look fantastic of course!"

As I'm looking at changing two of my wedges over to the S18's namely my 50 & 54 deg probably in the satin chrome finish I just wondered If your opinion of their performance was still the same..?,
also I would be interested to know how the black finish is holding up is it still OK or is it wearing off..?,

Cheers
John.

Hi John ... Yes, surprisingly I still have my S18 wedges! :eek: - During the winter I stopped carrying the 49* as I play all shots from just over 100y down to greenside with my 919 PW (better control & don't need the spin in the wet conditions that prevail) - I also haven't used the 54* or 58* much for the same reason (just for lobbing & bunker play with the 58*) consequently there hasn't been much wear to the black IP finish - I do think the black IP is going to last longer than the blue that Mizuno finished some of their wedges with? - That seemed to wear off very quickly...
Hope that helps?
Paul

If the black is the same as in the MP-T5 wedges, the colour does handle wear well. I bought mine used three years ago and it's been my "get out of the woods" club ever since. Thus it has had its fair share of dates with rocks, tree roots, gravel paths and whatnot yet I'd call the colour of the sole a shinier black rather than silver/chrome. The leading edge and the very bottom of the face is more chrome than black though.
