JPX EZ Iron
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.
JPX EZ Forged Iron
Mizuno have pioneered “Boron Forging” as the extra strength it delivers allows engineers to create pocket cavities inside the head which cannot be achieved in a standard forged iron.
The new JPX EZ Forged irons are aimed at a wide audience and Mizuno say they are perfect for mid to higher handicappers but also professionals that don’t like to practice too.
Expect the usual excellent forged Mizuno feel. The addition of cnc milled pocket cavities in the 3-7 irons not only increase moi's but also help raise ball speeds and playability when shots are hit off centre. Mizuno reckon through the use of multiple thickness faces the JPX EZ are the hottest forged iron they have ever created. Attention to detail is Mizuno’s thing and they have paid particular attention to both the leading and trailing edges of each iron. Carefully bevelling each to enter and exit the turf perfectly with less interference for a cleaner strike and less energy loss. Shot control and feel on the scoring clubs is enhanced by using solid one piece forgings.
