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.
