I am of the opinion this driver, which can now be had for $299 new, is currently the best deal out there for the money.

You get a real Fujikura shaft made in Japan (569 or 661) and it's a great head. So much stuff on the market made in China and so much inconsistency in quality. Some good, some suspect, some just lacking quality control.

The JPX 900 competes on distance with anything out there (not the highest priority category to score well) and it is not built with too long a stock shaft. Accuracy can truly be dialed in. It also does not have a giant 460cc head, which I have never liked because it doesn't really help. Not talked about as much but really strong club.

Where can you buy it for $299?  The lowest I've seen is $349.  Thanks!

Do a search on eBay. Dealer in Pa has them. I grabbed one and he has one left. Good luck!

Just picked one up new for $200 on Ebay.  Have hit some bombs with it, so the promise is there, but not yet able to take it to the course as I need to find some consistency with it.  I need to figure out the weight configurations and see what works best for a better dispersion.  One fun feature--when I swing, this baby whooshes much more than anything I've ever used.  I'm a hacker, 14 hi, 90-95 swing speed, old coot at 65.  Love to hear the sounds when I swing this thing.  Hope I can dial it in to beat out the Ping G, which doesn't get out there quite as far but is more consistently in or near the fairway.

I also was definitely hitting the JPX past my Ping G. I think the extra adjustability is a factor there and the shorter shaft because I was centering it more often.

From my demo and testing you can dial it in to be stupid straight... for me it was with the two weights in the center slot with both situated near the middle.

Didn't go back though the whole thread, very tempted to add 3 wood but haven't been able to hit it yet. I am in love with the 661 shaft, is it just as good in 3w? Seems like a steal at current prices.

Just ordered a clone to my gamer 661s playing 44.75". When any thing golf soft or hard goods go on sale everywhere it scares me into getting the clone custom ordered so can sleep at night. My Dr. said I have golfhoeitis and I agreed.  Love the JPX900 with the Speeder Evo II offerings as stock!! Love!

Hit all the new stuff today including G400. While thw g400 looks and feels great nothing can still come close to the JPX900 driver. Will stay in bag.


The 3w is silly straight. Just adjusted it down to 14degree but havent hit it like that yet. Thinking of adding 661 to 3w. Currently have the 700 series

I have a new 900 sitting in the closet which I thought I would just sell as I have a G400 SFT already on order... but after going out this past weekend and hitting a 900 demo and once I played with the weights it was definitely very forgiving....what to do, what to do...lol! Keeping both until next year and letting them battle it out a bit on the course is what I am thinking right now.

Curious about this as well. Picked up a used one to test against my epic SZ and not sure what a good setup will be to start off. I read that the 900 is fairly draw biased which won't be great for my already draw tendencies so was think one weight in the face position and the other front center to help with my high spin issues

For me it was all about course play and ball flight/distance.  Diver Swing Speed is 107-108mph with 661 S playing at 44.75" (-1/4")

Weights in center channel in the 1-2 positions and the sole plate in the neutral position playing at loft 10.5.  Sits a little closed but launches bone straight with my slight cut swing type and runs out nicely.

I play a baby cut and have a very open face at top.....9.5* with center slot weight towards rear and one in the heel draw slot.....oh and these guys LOVED the matte blue color! Really straight hitting club and as long as I'm not over thinking things, I'm in the fairway.

I might try 10.5* to see launch window but I'm used to my low cuts for as long as I can remember.....

Just had my longest drive ever on the course today 310.  I was getting a couple pokes over 300 here and there with the 661 Evo II but I just swapped it out for a Kuro Kage DC 80 X.  Very stable  an much better center contact.

Well played sir and big bomb right there! It's a beast head and coupled with the right shaft spec to the player just too good!  Nice job

Anyone have any more info on whether the 900 is being replaced?  I hit one at a demo day a few weeks ago and I seem to have finally found a driver that can knock my 910D2 out of the bag.

Anyone have any more info on whether the 900 is being replaced?  I hit one at a demo day a few weeks ago and I seem to have finally found a driver that can knock my 910D2 out of the bag.

Most definitely being replaced.  Mizuno USA is all but out of stock on all JPX 900 woods, and the replacement is starting to be shown to Mizuno accounts already.  I should see it in the next few weeks, at which time I'll have more info.

Finally had a chance to hit the 3 wood at PGATSS today, movable weight was way up front in the low setting and I still managed to hit it well off the deck, way better than any of the M2 combos I tried and just like with the driver, just felt waaaaaay faster through hit the air. Easily the best on the "woosh test".  Going to scrounge for the best possible deal but I fully expect to have one in the bag soon.

Same as driver, 661 S.  Loved it, not sure if it's psychological or not but I just swing these clubs better and faster than anything else I tried.

How's everyone still enjoying the driver/fairways? Debating on what flex to get. My max ss is about 110mph but I drop down to 104mph after about 10 driver swings in the simulator.

Thinking either 661 S or X, not the 757.

I really like the driver. SS is about 103-105, went with the 569 S shaft and it feels good. Holds up fine. Love the flight with this driver. Really carries. Like the more compact-looking head. High-quality stick and real-deal shafts make it even better.

I bought one of these when they where first released last fall. For some stupid reason I sold it. I found a deal last week on eBay to good to pass up. A brand new 900 driver with the 757x shaft for $209! I'm hoping this shaft isn't to much for my 108 mph ss. I have a neg aoa so I'm always looking to knock off some spin and I bet this combo will do it.

Went ahead and got a JPX 900 driver mint and used 3 wood in 661 X flex. Hoping they are straighter and higher launching fairway finders for me!

The switch back to a full Mizuno bag may be happening again all too soon.
