While Mizuno is best known for its sleek, high-performance irons, the clubmaker also produces high-quality woods. Witness the new JPX EZ line, which is aimed at the game-improvement golfer.
Start with the JPX EZ driver, which features a Quick Switch mechanism that has eight intuitive settings designed to promote an array of flight options. A Rebound Crown is made to increase ball speed for greater distance, while the clubhead geometry has been optimized to initiate a high launch with low spin, for maximum carry and roll out.
In addition, the club utilizes a Hot Metal face to create a larger coefficient-of-restitution area for added length and a Ti 811 body material that company technicians made to provide optimum center-of-gravity placement.
“This is our first foray into the realm of customizing and adjustability,” says Chuck Couch, vice president of product management for Mizuno’s golf division. “With this driver, we wanted to deliver a product designed for ‘everyday’ average golfers that would aid their game and give the look, feel and overall golf experience that passionate golfers seek.”
The JPX EZ wood line also features a pair of fairways that come in lofts of 15 and 18 degrees. They, too, boast the Hot Metal design with ultra-thin maraging steel face and produce the maximum COR allowed by golf’s governing bodies.
Rounding out the line is the JPX EZ hybrid group, in lofts of 16, 19, 22 and 25 degrees. These come with a low-and-deep weighting and a stainless-steel body and thin crown that Couch says is made to instigate a high launch and steep landing angle.
