Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

Such is its rep­u­ta­tion in the irons mar­ket, Mizuno has al­ways had a lot of golfers of rang­ing abil­i­ties want­ing to play its clubs. Its new JPX900 range has three models to suit dif­fer­ent needs so that no­body will miss out.

The three new irons sets – JPX900 Tour, JPX900 Forged and JPX900 Hot Metal – each have dis­tinc­tive per­for­mance at­tributes that are made pos­si­ble by the unique base ma­te­ri­als used.

Mizuno’s new­est ma­te­rial, chro­moly 4140M, fea­tures in the most for­giv­ing set, the JPX900 Hot Metal. The new ma­te­rial paved the way for Mizuno’s thinnest ever cup face for a big­ger tram­po­line ef­fect and more dis­tance, but also re­mains soft and bend­able enough in the hosel for pre­cise lie-an­gle ad­just­ments.

The JPX900 Forged is slightly smaller in size and utilises boron-in­fused steel that al­lows a soft-feel­ing forged iron to pro­duce higher ball speeds.

This set also uses mul­ti­thick­ness faces, mean­ing heel or toe hits get a bit more spring at im­pact, thus mak­ing the irons more for­giv­ing.

You’ll also find milled pock­ets be­hind the lead­ing edge, which al­low 21.5g of weight to be re­dis­tributed to the cor­ners of the head to in­crease sta­bil­ity and re­duced dis­tance loss on mishits.

All this comes in a mid­size pro­file that could still ap­peal to lower hand­i­cap­pers, with the shorter irons more com­pact for ad­di­tional con­trol.

The trio is com­pleted by the JPX900 Tour, an iron that is Grain Flow Forged from the same sin­gle bil­let of mild car­bon steel used to make the bet­ter-player MP-5 model.
