• Mizuno JPX900 Series irons officially launched
• New designs are replacements for JPX850 irons
• Range features three models - Hot Metal, Forged, Tour
It’s official. The covers have been taken off the new Mizuno JPX900 irons and they are absolutely stunning.
Announced today, the Mizuno JPX900 Series features three different iron models – the JPX900 Tour, JPX900 Forged and JPX900 Hot Metal – which is one more than there was in the JPX850 family it is replacing.
The JPX900 Hot Metal is regarded as the most forgiving of the three new irons and is targeted more at the game improvement category of golfers than the other two.
It’s the first design to feature Mizuno’s new Chromoly material, which the brand says is much more versatile than other materials. The JPX900 Hot Metal is also the only iron in the range that is cast rather than forged.
Mizuno has used that to its advantage, though, with the installation of a new 360 Cup Face. Instead of welding the face to the cast head at the edges as normal, Mizuno has stretched the face to the back of the iron and welded it there.
The JPX900 Forged is the middle iron in the series and is the second generation of Mizuno’s forged irons to use Boron-infused steel.
The difference between the JPX900 Forged and its predecessor can be found in the face. Where the JPX850 Forged used a uniform, thinner face to give more distance, the new design has a multi-thickness face.
While the ‘Forged’ name will suggest to many this is an iron targeted at the better player, Mizuno found from its JPX850 fittings over the last two years that it’s an iron that can work for everyone.
The final new iron in the series is the Mizuno JPX900 Tour. Grain Flow Forged from a single billet of mild carbon steel, the brand is giving it the lofty acclaim of being ‘the purest, most solid-feeling iron in Mizuno history’.
It combines great feel and sound with stability and forgiveness to take on a classic Mizuno player’s iron style. The satin finish and compact face also give the better player feel to this JPX900 design.
