Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

golf.mizu­noeu­rope.com Lofts: 7.5°-11.5°

Stock shaft: Fu­jikura Speeder Evolution 2 (all cus­tom fit shafts avail­able at no ex­tra cost)

Ad­justable hosel: Yes How much loft change:

8 set­tings from 7.5°- 11.5°

TECH: 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 or heel slots to cre­ate a draw or fade bias.

WE SAY: The JPX900 is by some way the best driver Mizuno has ever made. Yes, it has so many dif­fer­ent set­tings you’ll need a physics de­gree to set it up cor­rectly (and if you don’t, we saw the po­ten­tial to lose 18 yards of carry). But for those want­ing to take the time with a fit­ter to dial in their per­fect set up, the JPX900 is se­ri­ously good. We can’t say it de­liv­ered any of the quick­est ball speeds or long­est car­ries, but our test pro found that us­ing the JPX’s sole weights in both the draw and fade bias slots he ef­fec­tively cre­ated a toe and heel weighted driver which was very ef­fi­cient at pro­tect­ing ball speeds.

VER­DICT: The “face an­gle prop” lets you set up how your driver sits, and is re­ally use­ful if you’re very par­tic­u­lar about how your driver looks at ad­dress.
