In August, our Andrew Tursky covered all the technical aspects of Mizuno’s three new irons: JPX-900 Hot Metal, JPX-900 Forged and JPX-900 Tour irons. And of course, the story linked to all the in-hand photos one could possibly desire.

If you missed those stories or photo threads, make sure to catch up with the links below.

Up to speed? Great. Now watch Mark Crossfield put all of the irons through the paces in the videos below.

    Play the 850 forged with boron….have yet to find anyone that hits them not say “I love how it feels” solid as can be….”Can I have them when you quit/die” common comment….

    Hot metal was a few yards less than the forged by was launching higher, spinning 600 rpm more and for me fit my slower swing speed better.

    I’ve hit these a couple times against the Steelhead and I picked the hot metal. Comparable distances, better feel and sound and no cost recoil 95 shaft upgrade fit me much better also you can get them for 112 a club at a number of places.

    Saw the Tour and Forged heads last night. Tour head is stunning but the size of a traditional blade. Forged looks great and may make a move to my bag over the winter months. Only issue is price. £50 more for 4-pw than the MP25s and a full £120 more than AP2s. Ouch. Crazy money for 7 irons with steel shafts.

    What is Chromoly anyway? Is that what rappers have on their escalades? I don’t know what Mizuno is doing? I remember when clubs were made IN AMERICA. Out of STEEL. This is just weird.

    That said, you call something “Hot Metal” and I’m expecting the cover of the ball to melt off. I’m expecting hotter than my griddle on sunday morning. These were warm-ish. I guess Warm Metal wouldn’t move as many units.

    In summary, I’ve seen more ballspeed on Pornhub.

    Interesting that he hit the forged model longer than the hot metal one.

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

Published

on

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!
