THE TECH

Mizuno says op­ti­mis­ing driver launch an­gles and spin rates can make a dif­fer­ence of about 23m. So they’ve cre­ated their most ad­justable driver ever, to let a fit­ter dial in spin rates and launch an­gles best suited to your game. Two 8g weights in the sole can be split be­tween ei­ther a cen­tral track to lower or in­crease launch an­gle and spin, or po­si­tioned in toe and heel slots to cre­ate a draw or fade bias. A slid­ing “face an­gle prop” lets you choose how the driver looks at ad­dress with­out af­fect­ing loft.

OUR VER­DICT

Mizuno prob­a­bly isn’t the first name to jump out for golfers when con­sid­er­ing a new driver. How­ever, we’ve got no hes­i­ta­tion in say­ing the JPX900 is the best driver Mizuno has ever made. You’ll likely need a physics de­gree to set it up to best suit your game (or leave it to a qual­i­fied fit­ter) but all round, it looks great, per­forms bril­liantly and pos­si­bly of­fers more op­tions than any driver on the mar­ket. It didn’t out-gun the very best for dis­tance for any tester. But two testers (one be­ing our pro) were con­fi­dent they could slip the blue-headed JPX into their own bags in a flash.
