The Drivers Test 2014: Mizuno JPX EZ - Silver Award
Tech: ‘QuickSwitch’ adjustability allows users to open or close the face up to 2° and adjust the loft 1.5° up or down. The driver also boasts a low-profile aerodynamic head design and 0.6mm ‘Rebound Crown’, where the head expands at impact to produce more of a spring-like effect from a larger area on the clubface.
What we said... James Ridyard: “Classic-looking head that seems to set up just a little closed in neutral. Very strong feel and sound. Distance and dispersion was excellent once I’d adjusted the face slightly open. Really impressive.” Joel Tadman: “The surprise package of the test for me. After upping the loft one click I could hardly miss. The dispersion was tight and the distance was up there with the rest. I love the look, too; the white grooves in the heel and toe frame the ball nicely. The only thing I disliked was the sound – it was a bit overpowering.” Stephen Kidd: “Looks great, impressive forgiveness and the shaft is a real plus. Flight was a little high, but balls still went long and straight.” Steve Milnes: “A great feel off the face and one of my highest-launching drivers, which made distance easier to come by. One of my favourite drivers on test.”
Pros: Classy, clean look with a hot-feeling face. Superb overall package.
Cons: Not the most workable driver.
