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:

Martin Martinez says:

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

Steve Novak says:

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!!!!!!

Steve Garnes says:

I’m buying new clubs in 2022 and I’m torn between these two, I think a big factor will be what the retail price of the 225’s ends up being?

John Templin says:

Mizuno sounded softer to me

Jason Brandow says:

Wouldn’t it make more sense to compare the 225 with p770?

Marty Orms says:

Andy, put ‘em up against the Ping i59!
I remember you saying similar things about that club 😉

Bill Bel says:

As usual, a good honest review. Bottom line, it’s what appeals to your eye & if they satisfy the feel/distance you are looking for…

Dennis Hough says:

P790 sounded slightly clickier

Aksel Nielsen says:

Why dont you show spin ?

Chester says:

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.

Justin Stephenson says:

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

Randall Pennington says:

Mark Crossfield did a video on sound vs feel and proved that forged just sounds different, doesn’t feel different.

Peter Cusanelli says:

P770 compare next

Peter Cusanelli says:

This what I wanted to see

Harry Horse says:

Would love to see new Mizuno Pro Vs JPX range

Paul Nagle says:

Bought a set of HMB's 3 months ago which I am very happy with. I can't see any compelling evidence to make me want to upgrade to the 225.

golf007sd2 says:

The 225 winds in my book!

Chris Collier says:

194yd 7 iron – really? Really???! Ummmm

Barney Germany says:

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 🎅

William skehan says:

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

mr Turner says:

Playing hmb, plenty small enough for me.

Jason Reitbauer says:

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 ?

sievans79 says:

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.

David Childs says:

Great review , what shafts were used in each club and any thoughts on difference in forgivenesses .

Shannon Kutz says:

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👊🏻

Corey Gale says:

Buy pxg they feel just as good and you have them in a week

Gary Mutch says:

I like the look of the new 225’s but I have a new custom fit set of P790’s and they are superb so TM’s all day for me.

Cornwall1888 says:

Never hit the p790 but my friend has them, they don’t sound forged at all they’re very clicky

John Kraus says:

I'll go with the TM P790 since the Mizuno 225 isn't available for left hand…
