MIZUNO JPX900 TOUR
golf.mizunoeurope.com Availability: 3-PW
Stock shaft: Choose from 16 steel and graphite options 7i loft/length: 34° / 36.75”
TECH: A low toe height, compact face and narrow, tapered sole are perfect for crisp ball-striking and precise shot making. A PowerFrame chassis reinforces the top edge for maximum power transfer.
WE SAY: What Mizuno don’t know about creating a brilliant players’ iron isn’t worth knowing. We love the classy, satin finish of the 900s and felt it bore some real benefits over traditional polished blades, as there are no reflections to distract the eye. Our test pro hit the 900s really well and produced some excellent numbers. A ball speed dropoff of just 1.1mph (between good and average strikes) was the lowest on test. It translated to just three yards of carry drop-off, which was also the joint lowest on test (with the Ping i200, Callaway Apex Pro and Ping iBlade). That tells us the cavity back offers extra forgiveness that you won’t find in Mizuno’s MP irons.
VERDICT: Who wouldn’t want to play a set of these? They look and feel fantastic, and perform just as well. Plus, 16 premium shaft options all at no extra cost is a huge fitting benefit.
