Mizuno JPX 900 Hot Metal Irons Review: You should know
Mizuno use 4140M Chromoly steel and a 360 Cup Face to bring specific ball speed enhancing properties to the cast JPX Hot Metal. They reckon its allowed them to create their thinnest club face ever for extra pop and ball speed no matter where you impact shots on the club face. A power frame chassis ensures excellent feel and maximum energy transfer to the golf ball.

Mizuno JPX 900 Hot Metal Irons Review: We say
There aren’t many iron designs that can boast of ultimate forgiveness and manage to marry it with an appealing head shape that masses of golfers want to play with. But the JPX 900 is one of the very few that manage to pull off that particular magic trick. It’s head really doesn’t look like a super game improvement model sat behind the ball, its slick blend of satin finish and generous head size are just what lots of club golfers enjoy. Don’t just think the 900’s are all show and no blow either as there’s plenty of power under the bonnet too. From a 7 iron loft 1.5deg weaker than most, the JPX posted our test pro’s longest carrying shots (180 yards, tied with the Ping G700), along with his second fastest ball speeds (124 tied with the Ping G700 and TaylorMade M CGB).
