MIZUNO JPX EZ DRIVER £349
A 10g weight can be slotted into one of the three ports in the sole of this oversized clubhead, switching shot shape between draw, neutral and fade. Further adjustability comes via the Quick Switch hosel, which adjusts loft up or down by up to two degrees.
Looks The JPX EZ driver is certainly inviting to hit at address, and its generous profile makes it look as forgiving as it is. The clubface is easy to align and the crown graphics certainly boost the shelf appeal.
Performance As expected, this driver excels at achieving a consistently high and accurate ball flight. With the option of altering shot shape, golfers can negate their miss or promote their favoured shape without having to adjust the face angle at the same time. In general, the JPX EZ produces above average levels of spin, which makes it more accurate and will also help slower-swinging golfers achieve more carry distance. Despite its size, it feels light and easy to swing, and the confidence this brings allows you to really go after the ball off the tee. From the sweetspot, it feels solid and powerful – something that doesn’t drop off too much on off-centre hits. The adjustability is simple and intuitive, allowing for fast and effective set-up changes. Consider this There isn’t a low-spin setting for fast swingers who would be enticed by the forgiveness on offer. From Mizuno’s range, the JPX 850 model would be more suitable.
An excellent option for the mid-toslow swinger seeking increased carry distance, as well as accuracy, from a clubhead that looks easy to hit.
WILL SUIT Mostly mid-to-slow swingers who need a little more spin for enhanced carry distance and accuracy The rounded crown enables more of the face to flex for increased ball speeds Three ports can house a 10g weight to alter the shot shape Mizuno’s Quick Switch system provides four degrees of loft adjustability
