Squaring your club face just got easier!

Gaining club speed and distance is great…

But with this “Magic Move” you also need less club head manipulation in the downswing compared to the steep position.

This makes it much easier to square your club face.

…Because you don’t need to exert as much forearm rotation and energy to square the face as you would if you were steep.

Sasho Mackenzie (one of the top golf scientist researchers in the world) makes the point quite clearly when he says:

  1. Did a fitting over the summer, it came down too Apex 21 vs P790, Apex won hands down, maybe I should have waited for the Mizuno Pro's 225, no regrets love my Apex 21

  2. Playing the 1st gen P790’s, just tried the latest 790’s. To me they felt the same. No reason for me to change. Only reason would be for some new Bling. But my irons are still in great shape. Not changing for awhile .
    Love the look of the Mizunos. Thanks for the GREAT vids Andy!!!!!!

  3. 11:01 At these prices I would not buy either. You can get a set of seven hollow body Takomo 101 irons for US459 that – from the reviews I have seen – have similar performance. In comparison P790 is US1,300 and Mizuno 225 US$1,628 (7 irons each). If you have any doubts watch the review by TXG Tour Experience Golf on YouTube from May 21, 2021. You do have to know your specs to order direct-to-consumer.

  4. I play i210s but I have tried the P790s a couple of times. Sure the thicker top line was off putting for 3 or 4 swings and then I stopped seeing it because I was concentrating on performance. The sound however stuck with me, it wasn't awful but not really what I liked to here. IMO the P770s sound a lot better, and for me I preferred the performance of the P770s over the P790 – not as long but more spin and more consistent. The P770s performed in my hands identically to my i210s and were no harder or easier to launch.

    From what I have seen from other reviews the 225 has slightly lower spin than the P790s but it is also 0.5 degree stronger so not really any significant difference. But for the price difference the 225s look better, possibly sound a bit better, than P790 for functionally the same performance.

    However, for most golfers a combo set of 223s in the shorter irons and 225 in the longer ones is probably a better choice

  5. I'm a MP 18 MB/SC player.
    For me is the gap, between the iron importent( exept of course accuracy, feel and sound).
    I the delofted irons, you need a extra gap-wedge and the gaps between the(some) irons are to big. For me, the gap from iron to iron mist be arround 12 ft., from lobwedge to 4iron.
    Should be interesting to see, the gaps between a 52/51 gap-wedge and the other gaps(in ft.), in these hollow irons….?
    Greetings from Germany ?

  6. Always been mizuno, but the p790s are a thing of beauty. Had them on the course first time today and they really do hit a solid high ball. Only 1 outing but very impressed

  7. You are trying the p 790 with the DG 95 shaft and then the Mizuno with the project X lz shaft, that's 2 totally different shafts … So why collect data ?

  8. I previously played MP20-MMC. Loved them when I was swinging well, however didn't help so much on a bad day. I tested P790(v3) and P770 in a fit, found numbers pretty much the same so went with P770. Surprised me, thought I'd end up with P790.

  9. How would you rate the new 225 vs the jpx hot metal pros? I know there is a 1 degree difference which isn’t a big deal really, but are interested in your thoughts. Thanks??
