Great video on mizuno’s new 825’s vs Rocketbladez irons w/ trackman

For those of you who don’t know it Taylor Made ic the 800lb gorilla in golf in terms of adverising and marketing. This is a great video breaking down Taylor Made’s claim to have the longest iron in golf. Basically a new mizuno 825 6 iron was lengthened and the loft strengthened to match the same specs of the rocketbladez 6 iron. No shock to see the 825 went further. Long story short, if you build a 5 iron and simply stamp it as a 6 iron are you really hitting the ball further? So what happens when you have a 25 yard gap between your pw and sw – are you now forced to carry 2 gap wedges?

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.
