MIZUNO JPX900 HOT METAL
golf.mizunoeurope.com Availability: 4-LW
Stock shaft: Modus Tour 105 (s) Project X LZ (g)
7i loft/length: 31° / 36.75”
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.
