TECH: Mizuno have used 4140M Chro­moly steel and a 360 Cup Face to bring spe­cific prop­er­ties to the cast JPX Hot Metal. They reckon it’s al­lowed them to cre­ate their thinnest club face ever for ex­tra pop and ball speed no mat­ter where you hit shots on the face.

WE SAY: There aren’t many iron de­signs that boast ul­ti­mate for­give­ness yet man­age to marry it to an ap­peal­ing head shape that masses of golfers want to play with. This is one of the very few that man­age to pull off the trick. Its head re­ally doesn’t look like a SGI model be­hind the ball; its satin fin­ish and gen­er­ous head size are just what lots of club golfers love. They aren’t all show and no blow, ei­ther, as there’s plenty of game im­prov­ing tech squeezed into that chas­sis. From a 7-iron loft 2.5° weaker than our long­est iron it posted ball speed and carry dis­tances right on our test av­er­age across all three players.

VER­DICT: A real plea­sure to use. We love how just like with ev­ery other Mizuno iron you buy them in­di­vid­u­ally and you get a huge se­lec­tion of shafts.
