JPX-825 Driver

The Mizuno JPX-825 driver provides higher ball speeds and lower spin than the company's previous driver, the MP-650, according to a Mizuno press release.

The driver is constructed with a new chemical etching process that makes the crown thinner, which lowers the center of gravity (CG). It also has Mizuno's CORTECH face, which has varying thicknesses in different regions to provide faster ball speeds across the face, as well as two internal weights that are placed low and deep in the head to provide stability.


“The JPX-825 Driver incorporates technologies designed to forgive both vertical and toe/heel mishits," according to Dick Lyons, vice president and general manager of Mizuno's USA golf division. "That means that even when you miss it high, low, left or right of center, you’re still going to get superior distance and keep the ball in play. We also worked to make the look of the driver more aggressive and cosmetically appealing so that it will suit the eye of golfers as they look down at it.”


Available Lofts:  9.5, 10.5 (All Right-Hand Only)
Shaft:  Fujikura Orochi Blue Eye 55
Grip:  Golf Pride M-31 58 Round
Suggested Retail Price: $299.99

JPX-825 Fairway Woods

Like the JPX-825 driver, the JPX-825 fairway woods have a square face angle and internal weighting that makes the head stable on mishits. An L-shaped maraging multi-thickness face design creates a trampoline effect that increases COR and maximizes distance, according to the press release. The clubs also have a thin crown and a thick-soled stainless steel body that is beveled for better turf interaction than previous models. Mizuno used its Harmonic Impact Technology (H.I.T.), as well as PGA Tour feedback to help ensure the JPX-825 Fairway Woods deliver a solid and powerful sound at impact.


“We’re pleased to be able to provide golfers with a wood family that will deliver long, controllable distance and a solid sound at impact,” Lyons said. “We feel strongly that the new JPX-825 Fairway Woods will appeal to a broad audience with its fresh, aggressive looks and superior performance.”

JPX-825 Hybrids

The JPX-825 Hybrids have the same beveled-sole design and H.I.T. as the JPX-825 Fairway Woods for better turf interaction and solid impact sound. They also has a square face angle. They are larger than previous hybrids from Mizuno, with an L-shaped maraging multi-thickness face design and a thin crown with a thick-soled stainless steel body.


“Our new hybrids offer an ideal combination of technologies to create and extremely forgiving club that delivers consistently long distance with accuracy,” Lyons said.


Available Lofts: 16, 19, 22, 25 (All Right-Hand Only)
Shaft:  Fujikura Orochi Blue Eye 75
Grip:  Golf Pride M-31 58 Round
Suggested Retail Price: $189.99

These are so good looking.  The JPX 800 woods were vastly underrated.  I much prefer this color scheme though.

Lighter and higher launching.

I hit the driver the other day (with Mizuno's new driver fitting "cart" - actually a stand bag with heads and shafts - swappable) with the stiff in the 9.5 and 10.5 heads. They certainly didn't balloon. Pretty similar to the Exsar shafts IMO.

I don't care for the alignment aid or the sole design in the pictures but will wait to see it in person.

Otherwise look like pretty clean sticks!

If you believe that Mizuno is "missing out" on your business, you have an amazing opportunity......

They do look good but Mizuno has really reduced their shaft offerings the last few years. Used to be able to get the proforce red but now it's just the Orochi or project x. Neither of which I really care for.

I hit the three wood about a month ago and loved the performance. It was easy to hit and had a low hot flight which is what I was looking for since my TEE XCG was ballooning bit time. However, the alignment aid is horrible -- It's big and has a paint job with glitter in it. The glitter in the alignment is straight out of the Barbie collection for golf. Overall the club was great if you want a lower flight or want to play a higher loft, but retain your old apex.

the gear looks great, but they will be left behind with all of the adjustable drivers on the market for 2013. I guess maybe Mizuno is just going for the diehard Mizuno buyer or maybe the guy who just wants a glued driver with a name, not sure???

Can anyone tell me how the 825 driver sounds compared to the 650?  I've hit the latter and it's the best sounding driver I've ever swung.

I'm considering giving one of these a try to see if it can unseat my Titleist 983E just on the sound alone.  I already have the 650 3 wood and 19* hybrid, they are superb and sound great also.

Great head just picked up a 9.5. My builder (The Golf Mechanic) turned it into a 8* by boring out the hosel and shimming it. At address its sitting about 4 or 5 degrees open, measured the loft again with the face square and it's right at 8* at the center point of the face. Playing it with a Tour Spx VTS 6X Silver at 45" loving it.  Tried it with a few exotic shafts with softer feel and it didn't work out for me the head seems to provide all the forgiveness you need, i'd recommend playing it with a little firmer feeling shaft just to get a little better feedback. I was torn thought about playing it with a Fuji Tour Spec just didn't want it to get to pricey.

These look awesome. It's a shame Mizuno woods are so hard to find.

Imagine that. Mizuno continuing their lefty snobbery, even when EVERY other OEM is expanding their lefty offerings. Reason I don't play anything Mizuno. I was ready to pull the trigger last year on Mp 59's, but the fact that I couldn't get anything else lefty was a factor. Looked at getting the 64's this year, but they don't come in lefty either. Oh well, there are plenty of OEM's that are more than happy to take my $$$$, and I am more than happy to give it to them.
