VER­DICT For a num­ber of years Mizuno has fought the per­cep­tion that its irons sac­ri­ficed dis­tance in favour of a look and feel that ap­pealed to bet­ter-than-av­er­age play­ers. Its 2017 line ad­dresses that con­cern and makes a strong case that it has the power to go along with the good looks. The JPX 900 fea­tures a steel al­loy in a sin­gle-piece cast­ing to pro­duce the thinnest face ever on a Mizuno iron at 2 mil­lime­tres. The re­sult is an iron that can pro­duce ball speeds nor­mally seen in irons with cup­face, sole-slot or face-insert de­signs.

COM­MENTS (L) Pierced through the air like a fighter jet at the right al­ti­tude. (H) You can feel the sole work for you. Didn’t chunk any de­spite some poor swings.
