In my mind, there is no doubt that Mizuno makes the finest irons in the world. I play Mizuno irons. I have for the past 10 years, and they continue to impress. The dedication and professionalism of the entire company are outstanding. Their “grain flow forged ” process gives these irons the amazing feel that Mizuno is famous for. But Mizuno has 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 full of performance features usually kept for Mizuno’s bulkier JPX irons.
“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. Mizuno could then use this as the benchmark for the acoustics of the JPX-900 Tour irons.
The company’s HIT (Harmonic Impact Technology) system, measures and quantifies sound frequencies. And Mizuno is able to mimic the acoustics of the MP-64 irons while improving on their construction.
