2014 Hotlist Drivers: MIZUNO JPX-EZ

MIZUNO JPX-EZ

STREET PRICE: $300
LOFTS: 9.5, 10.5 (all adjustable)

TECH TALK: This driver has been designed to make it easier for average players to launch the ball higher and with less spin. The adjustable hosel has eight settings that alter loft by plus or minus 1.5 degrees, as well as lie angle. The thin crown has a softer edge to improve face flexibility. And a fixed weight in the rear of the sole pushes the CG low and back.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
L: "The head shape is a little flatter on top and a little longer, but not huge. Makes me feel more confident about mis-hits."
M: "Uber-forgiving. Seems like hits anywhere on the face go straight and high."

HOT: We like offering an adjustable driver for average golfers, and this club resonated with all swing speeds on our panel.
NOT: With adjustability, players in the middle might get confused as to whether they should opt for the 9.5 or 10.5 loft.
