WRX Spotlight: Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

Published

on

Product: Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

Pitch: Per Mizuno: “A benchmark in iron design – the JPX919 Hot Metal combines an incredible balance of launch speed and soft, controllable landing angles. The use of a high strength Chromoly 4140M and seamless cup face construction produces the highest ball speed from any Mizuno iron. Mizuno’s new stability frame ensures that each iron within the set produces the correct flight apex – with landing angles steep enough to control shots into the green.”

Our take on the Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

No doubt most golfers are familiar with Mizuno golf clubs. Traditionally they have been known for their clean, players irons. Mizuno touts its “Grain Flow Forging” and long-standing tradition of making solid players irons. As technology has evolved, so has Mizuno. Not everyone can handle a blade or even a forged iron with regularity. Are you part of this group? Should you be? Enter the JPX 919 Hot Metal irons.

Mizuno’s list of features in the Hot Metal irons is long. A few: A highly resilient Chromoly 4140M face. Stability Frame. Re-engineered sound ribs. Harmonic Impact Technology. Cortech Design. (You can read the full list of features in our launch piece here)

But what does it all translate to when you have a club in your hand?

Whether you’re looking for extra forgiveness, a bit more distance, or just to hit more greens in regulation, we can recommend putting the Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons on your short list. After stumbling a bit the game improvement iron category (I’m looking at you, JPX EZ), Mizzy is back with a vengeance.

These irons are solid feeling, handsome and packed with technology, designed to help the golfer enjoy the game. I’ve played these and have been very impressed. Both ball speed and forgiveness have been excellent. And truth be told, looking down at address, it is indeed a game improvement club but is one of the most handsome choices in a crowded GI marketplace. Add the clean cavity (no more bright blue or *gasp* orange of years past), and these are some of the nicest, best-performing distance irons you can put in your bag.

    I was shopping last year and demo’ed them…. I play forged cavity backs now; but for a ‘shovel’ they looked pretty decent at address, not appearing overly large or bulky… Yes the top line is a slightly on the thicker side, but not bad at all and only a little bit of the training edge visible at address on the 4 iron as I recall. I am Senior, 8 handicap and I will consider these, probably in a combo set with the new Hot Metal Pro’s.

    Might be interesting to see if a successor to the MP-18 SC is released this year. I’m in the camp of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but I’d love to hit them them anyways, if they came out.

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK Orange Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
