GolfWRX Spotted: Mizuno JPX 921 Tour irons (thanks to Bo Hoag)

Published

on

This past Monday, Mizuno teased the very first image of their highly anticipated JPX 921 series with a single picture of a steaming JPX921 Forged iron. You can check out the original story here (GolfWRX Spotted: Mizuno JPX 921 Forged).

Now, in a convenient turn of events, Mizuno staff player Bo Hoag went public with an Instagram post showing off the new JPX 921 Tour irons.

The JPX “Tour” series has been a massive hit for Mizuno since the original 900’s were launched in 2016, and the following 919 Tours were just as popular, thanks to their improved stability while maintaining the aggressive “Tour” look. To say the anticipation surrounding the JPX 921 tour has been high would be a fair assessment.

We only have the one picture so far but it looks at if the new iron will keep a lot of the looks that have made the Tour series popular including a satin chrome finish and compact head shape.

If there is one takeaway from the initial image, it is that Mizuno has taken some of the mass from the high toe and positioned more mass in the heel (compared to the 919), which would bring them more in line with the original 900 except for the overall deeper cavity. With it being the newest model, it is safe to assume that any design change was based on player feedback and testing.

It’s going to be exciting to hear the story behind this new iron once information is released, but if you are curious to hear what other golfers are saying about the newly spotted image, you can check out the GolfWRX forum here: 2020/2021 Mizuno iron discussion.

    According to Mizuno’s website:

    “Smoke and a Chromoly stamping to the hosel suggest a possible coming together of Mizuno’s Hot Metal and Forged line up.”

    Two more years with the 900 is fine with me. Thanks for saving me cash.

    What I want to know is what is stamped on the hosel? Is the tour going to be like the Forged and a departure from the material used in the 919?

    They’re Mizunos so you know they’ll perform…but they took a step backwards in the looks department. IMO.

      I agree, hopefully the blue paint fill is custom. Also, the cavity looks bigger/deeper than previous models. Played 9191t for a while great set of irons, so nondescript and beautiful

      Agreed, big step backwards.

      The strip of chrome is the big detractor, other than the custom blue paint fill in Hoag’s set. I’ll reserve judgement until I see them in person.

      Agreed

      You’re absolutely right

    • Brandon

      Jul 30, 2020 at 4:53 pm

      Definitely. I like both of the previous sets better.

      That strip in the middle of the club with the model name does really ruin the appearance. Will be interested still to see how they perform even if they dont have the aesthetic value of previous models.

ProjectX launches HZRDUS Smoke RDX shafts

Published

on

Last week, at the WGC-FedEx Memphis St. Jude invitational, we got a sneak peek at the newest HZRDUS shaft from Project X, and now we have all the details on the new Smoke RDX.

To produce this shaft, Project X has teamed up with Hexcel, a global leader in composites technology for aerospace and military operations based in Stamford, Connecticut, for the purpose of utilizing their HexTow® carbon fibers to add more stability to the already extremely stable line of HZRDUS Smoke shafts.

Hexcel’s HexTow® carbon fibers represent the highest quality aerospace-grade carbon fiber and are used in the construction of some of the world’s most advanced aircraft including the Airbus A350 XWB, F18 E/F, A380, and more. I realize that sounds a bit generic, but when you consider some of the other applications for their materials and the fact Hexcel topped over 3.25 Billion dollars in sales last year – they mean serious business.

The Project X HZRDUS line of shafts has established itself as a shaft built for golfers with aggressive swing tempos, and that continues with the new HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX. It’s the first golf shaft to utilize Hexcel’s new HexTow® HM54 high modulus carbon fiber and combines it with high tensile strength HexTow® IM2C carbon fiber to provide the ideal blend of stiffness and stability desired by engineers to build into the HZRDUS shafts.

Smoke Black RDX profile features an ultra-stiff midsection along with a stiff tip to provide low launch and low spin performance designed to keep up with aggressive swings.  Although unconfirmed we can make the possible assumption that since this shaft has been branded the “Black” RDX there may be other profiles released that utilize the same Hexcel composites.

Specs & Pricing

Right now we are waiting on confirmation on pricing but specs, and available flexes of the new Smoke Black RDX are available below.

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member bleuachdu – Ping G410+ driver head

This driver head might have been photographed in the rough but with the forgiveness of the Ping G410+ you’re not likely to find yourself in it too often.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Ping 410+ driver.

Member KC4441 – Tour Issue TaylorMade Sim Driver

At GolfWRX we thrive on Tour Issue gear and this is a prime example of what we love—a tour issue driver still in the plastic. This is a BYOS (bring your own shaft) kinda build, but one that I think might be worth it.

Member jblough99 – Ping G410 LST fairway head

Ping drivers and fairway woods are all over the used market for the same reason Toyotas are—quality, reliability, and just the fact that they sell so darn many of them. This G410 LST is in almost new shape and a bargain.
