From the grind-it-out gamer who sneaks off after work for a quick nine holes to the everyday golfer striving to get better, the new JPX900 irons bridge the gap to find the right clubs to suit you.
Take the JPX 900 Tour, which combines Mizuno’s grain flow forged player’s irons with advanced weighting techniques. Made with 1025E mild carbon steel, this proven forging material delivers a soft, consistent feel.
Then there’s the JPX 900 Forged, which uses the strength of Boron steel to enhance feel and boost distance. The 1025 Boron used in the forging process is 30 percent stronger than existing 1025 steel, meaning we were able to make it our thinnest forged club face yet and push extra weight to the edges of the clubhead. This thin face, plus a reshaped pocket cavity, enabled us to expand the sweet spot of the club and make it as forgiving as possible.
Thanks to Chromoly 4140, the JPX 900 Hot Metal is able to have the thinnest club face in Mizuno history. Designed like a metal wood, our designers were able to fashion a thin club face, but add thickness through offset geometry and pushing any discretionary weight to the edges. This yielded a larger COR area with a power frame that offers unmatched stability.
These are three distinctly different sets of irons, but they’re unified by Mizuno’s drive to deliver golfers the best gear.
