What we say...
Mizuno’s first adjustable hybrid. A new profile means the head is made like a wood but plays like an iron and is perfect for golfers who have a tendency to pull hybrids left. A shockwave sole locates mass low in the head and its ability to expand and contract at impact creates more energy than a typical hybrid. The adjustable hosel allows up to 4deg of loft change so you can tailor gapping to your own game.
If you saw Top Gear 2016 you might have spotted how Mizuno’s woods didn’t feature too heavily amongst our favourites. And that’s because we thought the EZ range was pretty difficult to heartily recommend. That’s all changed this year as the JPX 900 is simply fantastic, and according to our test pro some of the best woods Mizuno’s ever made. Yes the JPX 900 is costly but the attention to the smallest details is spot on. We love how the crowns painted finish ends a couple of millimetres back from the top edge making the face look bigger, easier to hit and naturally inspiring confidence. It’s long blade length and compact mid-wide body felt solid and responsive even if it wasn’t quite the very longest on test.
Across our three man test we reckoned the JPX 900 was a pleasure to hit. With three lofts and the ability to tune the loft up or down by 2deg means the 900 can be fitted into virtually any golfers set.
