Mizuno JPX 900 Hot Metal
Our Review:How do you get the kind of ball speed typically reserved for an iron with a cupface or thin-face insert without having either? Mizuno uses a special kind of steel called Chromoly 4140M—a material used in high-tech bicycle frames and the body of solar cars. Its high strength-to-weight ratio allows for Mizuno's thinnest iron face yet—two millimeters. The thin face combined with a deep undercut promotes rebound off the face. A rib structure inside the topline stabilizes the frame for optimal feel despite the thin face.

lowSo consistent from shot to shot. Turf interaction was superior.
midA polished finish. Not too overpowering a topline. The long irons have a clean, crisp punch.
