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.

Player Comments
  • low
    So consistent from shot to shot. Turf interaction was superior.
  • mid
    A polished finish. Not too overpowering a topline. The long irons have a clean, crisp punch.
