Mizuno JPX 850 Forged
Our Review:The JPX 850 Forged is among the best in class for looks in this category. A combination of a unique material and design allowed Mizuno to make a forgiving, powerful iron in a compact package. Helping achieve this was the use of boron-infused steel that allowed for significant weight savings. A thinner face provides more ball speed and saves five grams. An additional 21 grams were removed from the pocket cavity. That weight was moved to the perimeter to enhance distance and forgiveness. The triple-cut sole adds the workability shotmakers crave.
Specs: 6-iron: 28 degrees; PW: 45

lowThe ultimate ‘tweener’ club. You have to have a decent golf swing to get the full benefit, but you can work shots with these. You can’t say that for most of the others.
midThe face feels incredibly active. I thought I would have to work to produce distance, but I didn’t.
midCuts through the turf so cleanly that it’s easy to replace divots.
highA nice, muted sound at impact instead of the harshness of some thin-faced irons.
