YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Mizuno say two-piece ball tech has reached such a point that golfers now struggle to tell the difference between this and a tour ball. Optimised to deliver improved ball speeds for mid to low swing speed golfers, and a smooth feel.
When you hear 10 and 11 handicappers say they can’t tell the difference between the JPX and their usual tour balls (which is more than twice the price) you take note. Our test pro was similarly impressed. The JPX posted an average carry just a yard shorter than the longest on test (with a driver), and backed it up by posting backspin numbers just a 100rpm (which is nothing) down on the highest spinning ball with a wedge.
For many the JPX would be an excellent choice, irrespective of swing speed or feel preference. Incredibly it’s more than capable of holding its own in a scrap with premium tour balls in the hands of everyday club golfers, at half the price.
