Mizuno JPX 800 Irons Review

in Iron


JPX 800 Irons is Mizuno's new iron set . 

Mizuno set a lofty goal for the JPX-800: To be the longest, most forgiving iron in the company's history. The JPX-800, in fact, gained 3 mph ball speed and 7 yards total distance in head-to-head tests with MX-200 irons. Mizuno's "Hot Metal" construction is a strengthening process that leads to an extra-thin clubface and triggers hotter ball speed. A multitiered pocket cavity expands the sweet spot and lowers the center of gravity for improved forgiveness.


Balanced Performance

A serious looking iron with ‘Balanced Performance' the JPX800 is Mizuno's first to utilize its JPX exotic technology platform. ‘Balanced Performance' is the result of a project to create an iron with strengths in a number of key criteria (feel, control, forgiveness, distance, profile) without one compromising another. The JPX800 delivers the magical combination of being Mizuno's most forgiving and longest iron of all time. The JPX800's look from address and solid feel at impact will have single figure players questioning their choice of iron. The visible distance gains of the JPX800 irons are achieved by combining Mizuno's Hot Metal approach – incorporating a new manufacturing process for a thinner, more uniform iron face. This Hot Metal process allows the JPX800 to hit the maximum allowable limits for energy transfer, far exceeding previous Mizuno irons. An exotic pocket cavity, with multiple thickness levels and an external power bar add the highest measurable levels of forgiveness (MOI) achieved in a Mizuno iron to date. The JPX800 achieves all this within a mid-size head which presents itself even more compactly and versatile thanks to a triple cut sole design. A progressive flow to shapely shorter irons, complete the JPX800′s ‘Balanced' orientation.
