Mizuno 2011 Line-Up
The new line-up from Mizuno sees 2 new wedges, 2 new putters and no less than 4 new irons. The irons are probably the pick of the 2011 line-up with the JPX lines replacing the higher end game improvement MX range along with 2 updated MP range irons. As always, the irons are “Condition of Competition” conforming but the new wedges are the first from Mizuno to conform to the new regulations.
All this hardware is accompanied with many updates of the Mizuno apparel, shoes and accessories including some very funky limited edition golf bags.
The JPX 800 sees Mizuno bring the JPX exotic technology that has been such a success in Japan. The addition of Hot Metal technology has produced their most forgiving (highgest MOI) and longest hitting (highest COR) iron ever.
JPX 800 Pro
The JPX technology combined with Mizuno’s reknown “Grain Flow” forging offer serious golfers a club that has the feel you expect of a Mizuno with the distance and forgiveness of high tech.
The MP-53 introduces the diamond muscle into the MP player’s range. Aimed at doing everything the previous generation MP-52 and MX-300 did so well, and doing it just a little better. The largest MOI of any MP iron, the MP-53 looks to combine the forgiveness of a big iron into the playability of a more appealing head shape.
The evolution of the Tour favourite MP-62, the diamond muscle adds even more stability. The MP-63 adds a 360 degree grind for a thinner top line and “reverse flow” throughout the set where the long irons are larger than the compact shorter irons.
Following on from the superb MP-T10, the MP-T11 have the new conforming grooves as well as face milling. There are two groove configurations: the 50 to 54 degree wedges have grooves suitable for full shots where the ball is compressed while the 56 to 64 have a wider shallower groove to maximise spin rates on shorter shorts. Available in either Black-Ni or two tone satin and chrome.
Designed to fill out any JPX iron set, the JPX wedges offer an easier transition from a cavity PW but still with the versatile triple cut sole seen on the MP range wedges.
MP T Series Putters
Three classic headshapes see Mizuno re-enter the putter market. Formed from a single billet of 1025E carbon steel for feel and then CNC milled for precision, face scoring is introduced for a consistent roll.
Line 90 Series Putters
Named after the alignment markings which are at 90 degrees to the face, the alignment aids have been designed to make it even easier to line up the putter. With a heavier swing weight, a thicker grip and shorter than standard shafts, the Line 90 was designed by the R&D guys at Mizuno for the R&D guys rather than for the Tour players
