An enhanced Dimple-Cluster design is a key factor in the new Mizuno JPX-S golf ball, which promises to convert increased ball speed into extra yards.
The micro dimples take effect at lower ball speeds to deliver
increased hang time past the apex of the ball’s flight, with the
aerodynamic cover design conceived and tested in Mizuno’s own air
Through softening the core of the three-piece ball, Mizuno’s ball
engineers have not only been able to enhance the feel of the JPX-S at
impact, but also deliver increased initial ball speed for the majority
“We call this ‘Balanced Performance’, as every measurable performance aspect of the Mizuno JPX-S
has evolved without sacrifice of another – speed, feel, spin,
aerodynamics or durability,” said Tetsuya Kanayama, director of Mizuno
But it’s not just slower swing speeds who will benefit from the
softer-compression core. Mizuno’s testing produced some interesting
results at slightly faster swing speeds, too.
Japan Tour player Nobuhito Sato, for example, was able to carry the
Mizuno JPX-S around 255 yards with the driver – on average 18 yards
longer than his normal MP-S tour ball.
“Although Sato isn’t a long hitter by tour standards, his driver
clubhead speed of 102 mph is comfortably more than most amateurs,” said
Alex Thorne, European Tour operations manager.
“This softer compression Mizuno JPX-S ball is going to produce greater yardage for the majority of players.”
