Mizuno JPX-EZ Irons For Game Improvement
Time for some word association. Let’s start with Mizuno. The next word might be baseball, running or volleyball but since you are a golfer we can go with golf. Ok... Mizuno golf. The next word is probably forged irons. The association of Mizuno golf and pure forged irons with a smooth feel is well established particularly with their MP series. Game improvement is a term usually associated with the other big name equipment makers. The JPX-EZ iron set is a new segment for Mizuno golf who believe that a forged feel need not be sacrificed for a game improvement iron set.
The 8 piece JPX-EZ set is lofted from #4 to Gap Wedge and designed for 8-18 handicapped golfers. The 1025 Boron material used in the clubhead is 30% stronger for added distance without compromising feel. The forgiveness of the clubface is achieved by distributing the weight to the four corners of the clubhead frame. David Llewellyn, Golf R&D Director at Mizuno explains, “The greatest achievement of the EZ Forged from an engineering standpoint wasn't the ball speed or forgiveness, for us it was the feel.”
Aesthetically, the JPX-EZ depart from the traditional Mizuno iron style with a black nickel anti-glare finish and orange highlights in the cavity. The thick topline, wide sole and offset will appear unusual to old-school Mizuno iron players, however compared to other game improvement irons the look is similar.
Custom fitting for the iron set is suggested and Mizuno makes it easy with over 2,000 fitting centers across the USA. In just 3 swings, Mizuno’s fitting system will determine your Swing DNA to find the perfect specs for your new set. According to Mizuno’s data, matching the right shaft and club, players can add 10 to 30 yards of distance to every iron.
