Mizuno teases new JPX-900 woods, irons in video



Coming in September, Mizuno’s new JPX-900 line. While we’re still waiting to hear official details about the company’s new driver, fairway wood, hybrid and irons, much can be learned about the clubs from Mizuno’s teaser video, which was released on Facebook today.

According to the video, the JPX-900 driver (which was added to the USGA Conforming Club List earlier this month) uses two 8-gram slidable weights to alter trajectory. The JPX-900 fairway wood uses a single sliding weight, as well as the company’s new Shockwave sole. The JPX-900 hybrid also uses the new Shockwave sole, which we can safely say from the name will have ball speed benefits.

The JPX-900 irons appear to come in three different models:

  1. JPX-900: A distance iron made from a material called Chromoly 4140M.
  2. JPX-900 Forged: A players iron forged from 1025E boron steel.
  3. JPX-900 Tour: A blade-like iron forged from 1025E carbon steel.

In the past, Mizuno’s JPX iron line has showcased the company’s latest technologies, and has usually appealed to higher-handicap golfers than the company’s MP line. With the latest JPX iron release, however, it appears that the line could be blurring — at least in terms of size and shape. As for the technologies in the new clubs, we’ll just have to wait a little longer to hear exactly what Mizuno has done.

    Unless I’m missing something, it looks like Mizuno is no longer stocking the right handed 850 forged. Lefts are still available.

    I have the 850 forged and I love ’em. Nissan shafts at no upcharge. The 900’s have something to live up to, let alone surpass.

    At least at one point, you were kind of funny. You’ve reached “searching for relevancy” very quickly.

    I don’t quite understand these comments about a manufacturer coming out with regularly updated club lines. To follow this logic to its natural conclusion, it seems some want club manufacturers to come out less often with new lines. To what end? To box them in and to doom them as a “niche” market brand? Companies are in business to make money. Today’s markets dictate certain marketing strategies and, obviously, Mizuno, TM, Callaway, Nike and most every other major club maker have decided they need to keep buyers interested by introducing new stuff every couple of years. No one is forcing you to buy the new clubs; thanks to GolfWRX, there’s lots of old, used clubs for sale on the private market.

    Yeah, amazing that a company that produces a product would want to release products.

    What are you on about? This isn’t Callaway or TMAG. The JPX, JPX EZ and MP lines are all on 2 year cycles. JPX due for refresh now, MP due for refresh in fall 2017, EZ due for refresh in spring 2018. Better get your clock checked.

      Have the forged Mizuno jpx 850 boron..Have yet to find anyone that hits one not say “Love how that feels, when your done with them can I have them”. Flush an 8 iron and it feels like you just sliced through butter and ball is gone….

    I use to have Mizuno clubs ,the MP600 driver ahead of the times.MX 400 great game improvement
    Stuff . I like these so much I would give them a test run.

    The Tour’s look clean and the Forged look good but not great. Remove the JPX 900 logo up by the toe and make it smaller replacing the Mizuno text logo and they would be really fresh.

        Smizzle acting like Mizuno’s releases are as frequent as his posts. Don’t matter. He makes the board more lively. Keep ’em coming, friend.

        FWIW I wouldn’t mind seeing releases every 5 years. For every TM Bubble Shaft breakthrough there are 100+ no-improvement rev generators. If I had a dollar for every ‘gain 5-10 yds!’ claim from clubmakers (and celeb teaching pros – I’m talking to you, Hank), well, I’d have a lot of dollars. Very few yardage gains, though.

    My favorite parts of Mizuno have always been: #1 feel, and #2 simple and refined looks. Unfortunately only the feel looks like it will be remaining, which undoubtedly still be pretty dang good.

    Wish they made forged cavity backs in the same metal as the tours. Didn’t care for the boron and Mizuno has never been into “distance” until recently. But I’m gonna hit em ASAP regardless.

    • Mizman

      Jul 26, 2016 at 3:15 pm

      Well, THAT is a forged CB in that very metal you want. So it IS the club you want. Duh

Tour Edge shares photos of never-before-seen square driver from 2007



The year was 2007. The famous/infamous Nike Sasquatch Sumo2 was released the year prior, ditto the Callaway FT-i. It was a (brief) time when, if you were a driver, it was hip to be square.

Fast forward 16 years. Tour Edge revealed on social media this week that it had plans to add right angles to its Exotics line with an epic #TBT post, writing:

“For this #throwbackthursday we’re going to prove that sometimes a product just wasn’t destined to come out…

“That’s the case with this one-of-a-kind Exotics XSi square driver.

“The XSi stood for XTREME SUPER INERTIA, and we were following the design trend of the day back in good ol’ 2007…

“But [in] the end cooler heads prevailed and this one was left on the shelf.

“Literally, we just found it on a shelf in our “museum” and almost every single person who was here at the time had forgotten about it, or just plain never knew it existed.”

Check out photos of the Tour Edge Exotics XSi, below!
