What we say...
JPX EZ Irons
Mizuno say the new JPX EZ is a “point and shoot” iron thats matches distance with feel. They reckon its engineered to be the best feeling iron in its class and is designed to deliver launch monitor busting ball speeds. A 360deg dual pocket design inside the cavity creates a “cavity frame” which pushes mass to the corners of the long and mid irons, creating what Mizuno say is an incredibly forgiving easy to launch iron.
Blending feel with distance is not an easy proposition but its one that Mizuno feel they have pulled off with the JPX EZ. A multi thickness face not only delivers great feel but also allows the face to flex at impact which increases ball speeds to levels which Mizuno say they have not seen before.
Over the years we’ve seen manufacturers trick up iron lofts so an 8 becomes a 7, but Mizuno reckon on the JPX EX they have maxed out on every available technology to increase ball speeds so they're keen to point out they’ve avoided such cheap tricks. Whilst the long and mid irons feature distance technologies the 8-PW are more compact with thicker faces to aid control and shot making potential.
Sets will be available from 4-SW and come as standard with either a Dynamic Gold or XP95 steel shaft or Orochi graphite. Expect to see them appearing in good golf shops from early 2016.

Mizuno Irons User Reviews
I have recently bought these irons having tested them against five other clubs. They gave me the straightest flight with good distance, they are also very forgiving. If I got two out of three shots right with my old irons Ping G20's I was doing ok. Now its more like nine out of ten. I am 23 handicapper so its making a big improvement to my game. Thank you Mizuno!
I normally don't fuss over reviews but this iron is worth it. I had never really looked at Mizuno clubs before, but I had heard good things and thought I would give them a whirl. I was not disappointed. Upon first address they instantly boost your confidence, the matt black finish looks excellent and reduces glare. They are noticeably lighter than my previous irons (Rocketbladez) making for an effortless swing without sacrificing distance, and the sound they make on contact is pristine even on those off centre shots. As a 10 handicapper I can strike the ball relatively well anyway but even on an off centre strike the ball still launches well. Although designed to be more forgiving, workability isn't sacrificed and I was able to hit straight shots, draws and fades without issue. The accuracy is something else, and with it comes distance adding roughly 5-10 yards to what i was hitting with my Rocketbladez. I was lucky enough to find these online (golfdepot.co.uk) at less than £300 and luckily my local pro shop does price match so I managed to get an absolute bargain along with fitting. Overall an excellent club that boosts confidence and accuracy. And at a great price.
