What we say...
A 15g weight can be fixed at any point along the JPX’s central track to lower trajectory and spin or increase forgiveness and launch. A shockwave sole contracts and expands during impact transferring more energy to the golf ball for maximum carry distance. A quick switch hosel means loft can be tuned by up to 4 degrees.
Just like the JPX 900 driver and hybrid the fairway wood has a really inviting head shape that just wants to be hit. We love how like the hybrid the painted crown finishes a couple of millimetres back from the top edge which gives the impression of the face being larger than it actually is. Some club designers will argue constructing a sliding weight track through the centre of the head limits the clubs MOI potential and we’d have to agree to some extent, as we felt there were more forgiving models involved in our test. A 15g sliding weight is 10g lighter than TaylorMade’s M1 and because the weight track doesn’t allow moving the weight to the very back of the head it meant we saw little difference in launch angle, spin and carry switching the weight between the most forward and back positions.
A really nice fairway wood that we reckon will perform at its best in the hands of mid to fast swing speed golfers. For us like the JPX 900 driver and hybrid it’s test data was right on the test average. Which means it’s not quite the longest, but in the hands of a serious golfer and with the right set up its workable and versatile from both the fairway and tee.
