Mizuno JPX 900 Hot Metal

Our Review:

For a number of years Mizuno has fought the perception that its irons sacrificed distance in favor of a look and feel that appealed to better-than-average players. Its 2017 line addresses that concern and makes a strong case that it has the power to go along with the good looks. The JPX 900 features a steel alloy in a single-piece casting to produce the thinnest face ever on a Mizuno iron at two millimeters (slightly more than the thickness of a nickel). The result is an iron that can produce ball speeds normally seen in irons with cupface, sole-slot or face-insert designs.
Specs: 6-iron: 26 degrees; PW: 45
Price: $900

Player Comments
  • low
    Pierced through the air like a fighter jet at the right altitude.
  • low
    Mizuno has almost captured their iconic feel in a distance club. It feels that good.
  • mid
    Pretty soft feel in your hands, it dampens the harshness of a mis-hit. Even when you hit it low on the face didn't give up to much distance.
  • high
    You can feel the sole work for you. Didn't chunk any despite some poor swings.
