The Verdict: 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.
