WRX Spotlight: Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

Published

on

Product: Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

Pitch: Per Mizuno: “A benchmark in iron design – the JPX919 Hot Metal combines an incredible balance of launch speed and soft, controllable landing angles. The use of a high strength Chromoly 4140M and seamless cup face construction produces the highest ball speed from any Mizuno iron. Mizuno’s new stability frame ensures that each iron within the set produces the correct flight apex – with landing angles steep enough to control shots into the green.”

Our take on the Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons

No doubt most golfers are familiar with Mizuno golf clubs. Traditionally they have been known for their clean, players irons. Mizuno touts its “Grain Flow Forging” and long-standing tradition of making solid players irons. As technology has evolved, so has Mizuno. Not everyone can handle a blade or even a forged iron with regularity. Are you part of this group? Should you be? Enter the JPX 919 Hot Metal irons.

Mizuno’s list of features in the Hot Metal irons is long. A few: A highly resilient Chromoly 4140M face. Stability Frame. Re-engineered sound ribs. Harmonic Impact Technology. Cortech Design. (You can read the full list of features in our launch piece here)

But what does it all translate to when you have a club in your hand?

Whether you’re looking for extra forgiveness, a bit more distance, or just to hit more greens in regulation, we can recommend putting the Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons on your short list. After stumbling a bit the game improvement iron category (I’m looking at you, JPX EZ), Mizzy is back with a vengeance.

These irons are solid feeling, handsome and packed with technology, designed to help the golfer enjoy the game. I’ve played these and have been very impressed. Both ball speed and forgiveness have been excellent. And truth be told, looking down at address, it is indeed a game improvement club but is one of the most handsome choices in a crowded GI marketplace. Add the clean cavity (no more bright blue or *gasp* orange of years past), and these are some of the nicest, best-performing distance irons you can put in your bag.

    I was shopping last year and demo’ed them…. I play forged cavity backs now; but for a ‘shovel’ they looked pretty decent at address, not appearing overly large or bulky… Yes the top line is a slightly on the thicker side, but not bad at all and only a little bit of the training edge visible at address on the 4 iron as I recall. I am Senior, 8 handicap and I will consider these, probably in a combo set with the new Hot Metal Pro’s.

    Might be interesting to see if a successor to the MP-18 SC is released this year. I’m in the camp of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but I’d love to hit them them anyways, if they came out.

No tape, no solvent: New Golf Pride Concept Helix grip makes installation hassle-free

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to regrip your clubs but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of tape or solvent, Golf Pride has developed a revolutionary system to make regripping easier than ever before with the all-new Golf Pride Concept Helix.

The Concept Helix grip and the simple system used to install it removes the fear factor of installing grips and also brings a new level of accessibility to those that are looking to benefit from the performance advantage of new grips—it also requires zero drying time, meaning you can go from gripping clubs to hitting shots instantly.

To see how it works, check out the video from Golf Pride below.

Golf Pride Concept Helix grip: More details

Golf Pride’s new Concept Helix grip system uses a friction and torque-based installation method that ensures the grips are secure and are installed using a proprietary ‘horn’ device that is included with every order.

“Golf Pride stands at the forefront of innovation in grips, and Concept Helix builds on that legacy as the first-ever twist-on grip technology system. This is the first major new advanced concept to come out of the lab at our new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst and innovates the installation process, requiring no tape, no solvent, and no drying time. Getting fresh grips on your clubs will be more seamless than ever.”
Greg Cavill – Global Project Engineer / Golf Pride

The other interesting note is that without the need for solvents or tape, the new Concept Helix grips and more environmentally friendly.

“We continue to explore new technologies that benefit golfers, both on and off the course. Concept Helix, in this regard, is this next step in the exploration of best practices for grip installation.”- Brandon Sowell, global director of sales and marketing for Golf Pride
