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. 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.To see the specs and other innovations on the Mizuno JPX 900 Irons, go here!

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.
