KEY TECH AIMED AT Three different-sized irons are made with three different materials Each model has a unique performance to suit different types of players £105 per iron (Hot Metal), £120 (Forged and Tour) HOW MUCH
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.
