Mizuno JPX EZ Irons Review
The game improvement iron market has been flooded recently with manufacturers releasing new and innovative solutions for the weekend hacker and high-handicapper. This includes hybrid irons, gravity backs that look and feel like forged and everything in between. I've tried a number of new irons in this market, however I doubt I will find a better pure game improvement iron than the new Mizuno JPX EZ series.
As you can see in the video above, these irons not only perform great, but they also look incredible. Golf club engineer Tomo Aoki explains what the Mizuno JPX EZ irons can offer the mid- to high-handicap golfer.
“The Mizuno JPX EZ is going to turn you into a player who can take risks - someone who can take the shot on and not think about the danger. You’re going to hit shots that you’ve never been able to hit before," Aoki says.
What makes these irons so darn easy to hit is the multi-layer construction of each club. The 4- through 7-irons all feature thin, multi-thickness clubfaces that promote maximum distance and ball speeds in the form of a gigantic sweet spot. During a recent driving range test of these clubs I was routinely hitting the ball 10 to 15 yards further than my current forged irons.
Likewise, the 8- through GW irons also feature a massive hitting area to aide in accuracy and distance consistency while a lower center-of-gravity helps you get the ball airborne. This is vitally important to any player who struggles with his or her short game.
Overall, I was very impressed with the Mizuno JPX EZ irons. If you are looking for a game improvement iron that looks and feels like a forged blade, you should seriously consider picking up a set of these clubs. You will not be disappointed.
