The Hybrids Test 2014: Mizuno JPX EZ
Tech: A larger, deeper clubhead creates deep weighting for steeper landing angle. Flex Crown maintains high ball speeds from high or low strike points.
What we said… James Ridyard: “Rounded head is done well, nicely balanced in look and feel. Leading edge is curved but not overly so, sits perfectly square. Workability in a large head shape.” Joel Tadman: “It’s a larger, rounded look but frames the ball nicely and the dark matt finish is really classy. Powerful feel with a tight dispersion. Easy to get under the ball from poor lies.” Peter Ward: “Sits perfect at address, graphics on shaft are funky. Appealing look and performance.” Ross Nichols: “Consistently long. Felt good out of the middle, a joy to hit.”
Pros: Balance between workability and looks.
Cons: Round shape may put off good players.
The numbers: Distance consistency: 8.5 Dispersion: 8.5 Looks: 8 Feel: 7.5 Forgiveness: 8 Versatility: 8
