Equipment: New Mizuno JPX EZ irons launchedOctober 6, 2015 Golf Equipment
More feel and ball speed added to popular game-improvement irons
5 Mizuno have unveiled the new JPX EZ irons line headlined by the JPX EZ Forged.
The new JPX EZ Forged iron merges the world of the ˜distance iron’, with that of the softer, more controllable forged iron, eliminating the difficult choice between distance and feel that amateur players have typically faced.
The beautifully finished heads are infused with Boron to facilitate a wider cavity from 4- to 7-iron – creating a larger rebound area for increased ball speed and stability on mis-hits.
From 8-PW, the heads taken on a more compact, solid one-piece design than their predecessors for enhanced ball control with the scoring clubs.
The greatest achievement wasn’t the ball speed or forgiveness, but the feel" The new JPX EZ Forged irons boast a beautiful anti-glare black nickel finish that will wear and soften over time.
The greatest achievement of the EZ Forged from an engineering standpoint wasn’t the ball speed or forgiveness, but the feel, says David Llewellyn, Head of Design for Mizuno.
It’s so hard to maintain that moment at impact when we’re pushing so many design parameters to the maximum.
The new Mizuno JPX EZ is more of a distance iron, with feel then built back in.
Mizuno say the JPX EZ still offers exceptional feel for a non-forged iron in this class.
Engineers have maxed out every design element to help boost ball speeds, without cranking lofts, to deliver an iron that offers total playability to a range of golfers across the handicap spectrum.
The JPX EZ irons boast the same anti-glare Black Nickel finish as the Forged model, plus more compact heads and uniform face thicknesses from 8-PW to enhance touch and control.
Ball speed-wise and stability-wise, JPX EZ is a total game-changer, especially if you want your 7-iron to fly like a 7-iron, adds Llewellyn.
JPX EZ isn’t for someone who wants to shape their shots, but it has a really surprising sensation that makes you feel like as if you’re playing a much more versatile iron.
