Golf Club Review – Mizuno JPX900 Irons.

Mark Crossfield, an expert reviewer of golf clubs, gives us his very positive review on the Mizuno JPX900 Forged.  Forged irons have a softer feel, but Mizuno has used a little bit of Boron in these clubs to give the head more strength thus allowing them to feature a thinner face.  This gives more of a springboard effect which will definitely help the average golfer get more distance.  Check out your nearest Mizuno certified club fitter is and have a fitting for clubs that will be perfect just for you!  Thanks to Mark Crossfield and GolfWrx for this great review!   Source : Mark Crossfield  GolfWrx

The Mizuno JPX 900 Irons – Blade and Cavity Back combined!

In my mind, there is no doubt that Mizuno makes the finest irons in the world.  I have played Mizuno for the past 10 years and am so impressed by the dedication and professionalism of the entire company.  Their “grain flow forged ” process gives these irons an unprecedented feel that Mizuno is famous for.  But Mizuno has now blurred the line between the pure blade and the more forgiving cavity back design to produce the Mizuno JPX 900 Tour.  These irons are going in my bag as soon as they hit the market!  Come and see me for a fitting!  Thanks to Andrew Tursky of Golf Wrx for bringing us this breaking news!
Mizuno, which has set the golden standard for players irons over the years, is blurring the lines between a blade iron and a forged cavity back with its new JPX-900 Tour irons. The new irons pass the eye-test for a blade, but they’re pumped up with performance features usually reserved for Mizuno’s bulkier JPX irons.

Like Mizuno’s MP iron models, which are designed for the most discerning and skilled golfers, the JPX-900 Tour irons are made from Mizuno’s Grain Flow forged 1025E Mild Carbon Steel to give golfers the familiar soft, solid feel for which Mizuno is known. “WE WANTED TO MAKE THE BEST GRAIN FLOW FORGED IRON EVER,” SAYS DAVID LLEWELLYN, MIZUNO’S DIRECTOR OF R&D. What’s different about the JPX-900 Tour irons is the more aggressive styling, which is part form, part function. The addition of Mizuno’s angular “Power Frame” to the cavity increases moment of inertia (MOI), which makes the irons more forgiving. Yet according to Llewellyn, the refined cavity-back irons should be an easy transition for its staff players, Chris Wood and Luke Donald, who currently use the company’s MP-5 blade irons. JPX900_Tour_CloseUp 1 Mizuno’s MP-64 irons, a forged cavity-back that many in the Mizuno community believe to be the best-feeling Mizuno iron in recent memory, was used as the benchmark for the acoustics of the JPX-900 Tour irons. By using the company’s HIT (Harmonic Impact Technology) system, which measures and quantifies sound frequencies, Mizuno was able to mimic the acoustics of the MP-64 irons while improving on their construction.

Pings new iBlade could be a game changer!

The Ping iBlade could be a game changer for the better player.  One of my favorite players, Louis Oosthuizen has put these irons in his bag and they seem to be suiting him as he is playing great golf right now.  Look out for him in the upcoming US Open at Oakmont!  I like the nice clean lines and the muscle back will help the medium handicap golfers get a higher trajectory with their long and mid irons.  I think Ping has a winner here.  Thanks to David Dusek of Golf Week for this insightful article!

It has been nearly three years since Ping brought the first S55 irons to the PGA Tour at the 2013 Barclays Championship at Liberty National Golf Club. Several staff players, including Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan and Louis Oosthuizen put the better-player irons into their bag in short order.

The irons that will replace the S55 in Ping’s line-up, the iBlade irons, arrived Monday at TPC Sawgrass, site of this week’s Players Championship.

While Ping representatives are not sharing details about the clubs, based on the photo above, history and who Ping had in mind for the clubs, there are a few educated guesses about the iBlade irons.

The stabilizing bar in the back of the S55 is gone, replaced by a cavity-back design. Theoretically, this could move more overall weight down and to the edges of the head for increased stability and a lower center of gravity.
