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.
