Mizuno long has prided itself on making irons that enhance feel and shotmaking for accomplished players, and the new JPX900 Tour irons are the company’s latest iteration of that tradition.
Grain-flow forged from a single piece of 1025E mild carbon steel, the irons feature a compact head, a lower toe and a tapered sole design. However, the JPX900 irons offer a touch of forgiveness as well, because weight was pushed to the perimeter of the heads.
Mizuno calls the design a PowerFrame, and on off-center hits it provides more stability. Mizuno says the design does not inhibit players from shaping shots, but it decreases the effects of a slightly mis-hit shot.
“The JPX900 Tour is a really surprising iron,” said Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s senior club engineer. “Feel wise, it’s a genuine throwback Mizuno, incredibly pure at impact. But the straighter lines and reinforced framework are very current, giving the 900 Tour a really playable look and the ability to perform on off-center strikes.”
The Mizuno JPX900 Tour irons will be available in 3-iron through pitching wedge with True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT S300 steel shafts and Golf Pride MCC blue/black grips in right-hand only for $1,199.99 starting Sept. 16.
