Mizuno’s soon to be released MP R-12 wedges are sure to be hit this fall! The MP R-12 is a classic, round shaped wedge with slightly more offset and curvature when compared to the MP T-11. This round profile is reminiscent of the Cleveland TA 691 wedges or Titleist’s Vokey 400 series. Loft specific sole geometry and precision milled Quad Cut grooves add to the MP R-12’s playability and the two distinct finish options, white satin and black nickel, frame the ball nicely at address. For increased spin ratesand control, the MP R-12 wedges feature True Temper’s DG Spinner shaft. These wedges are offered in a wide variety of loft and bounce combinations and they are slated to hit the door any day now!

As you know, we are huge Mizuno fans and this year’s product launch has been very impressive so far. Waterproof stand bags have been catching on lately and for good reason, golfers that are more prone to walking the course are generally willing to brave tough conditions. Mizuno’s new Aerolite WP Stand Bag is quite easily the nicest waterproof stand bag on the market. The Aerolite WP is based on the popular Aerolite platform and has many of the same features including the Kabuki top organizer cuff, Aero-straps with Slider Strap technology, cable grip, hydro-sleeve and shower cap. To make this bag fully waterproof, Mizuno constructed the Aerolite WP with their patented ImperLite fabric and features laser-cut heat welded zippers to keep moisture from leaking in through the seams. The Aerolite WP stand bag is offered in Black only with bright Mizuno blue outlines. Be prepared for those rainy fall days, order your new stand bag today!
Based on the success of the JPX irons, Mizuno decided to release a high performance wedge to complement the lineup. The new Mizuno JPX wedges share a similar profile to both the JPX and JPX pro irons and feature Mizuno’s quad cut grooves as well as a CNC milled face for maximum spin and consistency. These wedges are specifically designed for the mid to high handicap golfer, featuring a cavity back design for greater forgiveness and a wider, triple-cut sole for a more effective bounce angle. The JPX series wedges would make a great addition to your new Mizuno irons, pre-order a set today for a mid-September ship date!
Mizuno’s Aerolite X Stand Bag was very popular last season and we expect the new Aerolite X bags to do even better. With bolder colors and designs, the new Aerolite X will definitely appeal to the style savvy golfer or for those that just want some attention when they arrive to the first tee. Besides the bright colors and hypnotic patterns, the Aerolite X features Mizuno’s patented Kubuki orananizer top cuff with divide and slide technology which uses the natural weight of the heads to separate clubs for easy and quick access during play. Other handy features include Mizuno’s Aerostrap for carrying comfort, an Air Flow Hip Pad for improved air flow between your hip and the golf bag, and a waterproof rain hood to keep your clubs dry in adverse conditions.

The Mizuno JPX 800 Pro Irons are new this season and boy am I excited to hit these irons! I have been anxiously waiting for the JPX line to come state side and so far I like what I see. Although I am big fan of the JPX fairway wood and hybrid, the JPX 800 Pro irons are what have me reeling! I have owned several sets of Mizuno irons in the past but I always felt I could use a little more forgiveness on the linger irons but I never wanted to sacrifice workability or feel. With the JPX 800 Pro Irons, I will not have to sacrifice a thing. The JPX 800 pro irons are designed to offer an optimal blend of forgiveness, distance, and feel. The JPX 800 Pro irons boast the highest COR to date of any Mizuno Grain Flow Forged Iron as well as the highest MOI for a game enhancement club thanks in large part to the CNC milled cavity milling process in the 3-7 iron that provides a low and deep center of gravity. A solid power bar in the short irons and wedges increases feel and control where golfers need it most. Modal Analysis and Harmonic Impact Technology are employed in the JPX 800 Pro to produce optimal feel and sound to golfers who demand it. For better turf interaction from a wide variety of lies, the JPX 800 Pro features an aggressive Triple Cut design sole that will easily handle anything you throw at it. Over the past month, reviews of this iron have been glowing and Golf Digest recently awarded this iron a gold medal in their 2011 Hot List. Order your set of JPX 800 Pro Irons today from Budget Golf!
So far I have been very impressed with Mizuno’s new lineup this year. In fact, I am considering a purchase of the new JPX 800 Pro Irons which I feel to be a perfect blend of playability, feel, and forgiveness. And although I am not really searching for a hybrid, the new Mizuno JPX 800 Hybrid has my interest peaked. As with all Mizuno products the JPX 800 Hybrid looks stunning, especially from the address position. The head is compact, and I find the dark blue finish to be quite appealing. My only gripe, albeit a small one, is the alignment aid on the top of the club. I think it is too large and I think it would be better if they just left it off. As far as technology is concerned, the JPX 800 is loaded. This club features Mizuno’s patented Hot Metal Face Technology which is used to create an ultra-thin and incredibly strong stainless steel face that provides explosive distance and solid feel at impact. The JPX 800 also utilizes Ultimate Dynamic Stability technology which helps establish consistent ball speeds from both vertical and horizontal miss-hits for maximum performance across the entire hitting surface. A Hot Metal Face in combination with UDS technology is what really makes this hybrid stand out from all others on the market. Regardless of where you strike the ball on the face, the JPX 800 will deliver. Strategic internal weighting delivers an extremely low and deep center of gravity for effortless launch and decreased spin rates. Another great feature of the JPX 8oo is that the lie angle can be adjusted +/- 2* for a customized fit and better alignment thanks to the Mizuno’s patented, “Drop Down Crown.” A slightly beveled leading edge maximizes club head speed through the rough and provides better turf interaction regardless of where your ball ends up. The Mizuno JPX 800 hybrid is available in lofts ranging from 17* to 25* and is ready to ship! Order your new hybrid today and receive FREE UPS Ground shipping.
Rarely am I this excited about a golf bag, but the new Mizuno Aerolite X Stand Bags look amazing. Mizuno has shed their conservative skin and opted for a design that would appeal to a younger crowd. This limited run of Aerolite X stand bags feature bold colors and flashy designs and the prints are quite remarkable in person. My personal favorite would be the “Winged Shield” bag which has a blue and black abstracted inkblot design and “Digargyle” bag has a contrasting charcoal arglye print that really grabs your eye. The Aerolite X still has the same features and conveniences of the original Aerolite stand bags including an 8.5″ 7-way top with full length dividers, an AeroStrap shoulder harness, and AirFlow hip pad, a rain hood and a hydro sleeve. I am very pleased to see a company like Mizuno making youthful, stylish golf bags and I hope the trend continues. These bags are limited so if you are interested, I would hop this unique opportunity right now!
If you looking for a new ultra-light golf bag, I would check out the 2010 Mizuno Aerolite Micro Stand Bag. The Aerolite Micro bag weighs in at a mere 3 pounds and unlike many bags in it’s class, the Aerolite hangs naturally from your shoulders thanks to Mizuno’s comfortable Aerostrap harness. The 6″ 4-way top easily accommodates 14 clubs and I was nicely surprised that when I tested the bag in the shop none of the clubs stuck together. Other nice features that are generaly not included in bags in this weight range include a comfortable hip pad, a Mizuno cable grip, a rainhood, and a Hydrosleeve. And like many of the new Mizuno golf bags, the Aerolite Micro is offered in a variety of flashy color options. For the price, you would be hard pressed to find another golf bag that is this lightweight and well crafted.
Mizuno has done it again! The new MP 63 irons are simply stunning and I will state without any hesitation that they are the best looking forged players cavity back to be released in quite some time. The MP 63 is designed for the better player that is looking for the ultimate combination of feel and maximum ball control which has been made possible thanks to Mizuno’s newly patented Diamond Muscle Design. From address, the MP 63 sports the same iconic profile and grain flow forging process that the games top players have come to know and trust. Various new designs were tested by Mizuno Engineers, staff players including Luke Donald, and the Diamond Muscle was the clear winner. The trailing edge has been ground down for better turf interaction giving players greater versatility throughout the set and the progressive “players cavity” ensures playability in the long irons and control in the scoring irons. If you are in the market for a new set of forged player’s cavity backs, you will not be disappointed with the Mizuno MP 63. I already have a custom set of these irons on order along with their new MP T-11 wedges, order your new set today!
So far I love the new line of clubs coming from the Mizuno camp late this season. And although I do like the look of their new irons, I am most excited for the reworked MP T-11 wedges. These Grain Flow Forged wedges are similar in shape and size to the previous design however the grind on the sole of the wedge is more aggressive and features more heel and toe relief. The quad cut grooves now conform to the USGA rules and the faces have been CNC milled for consistency and maximum spin. (more…)
