2014 Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver Review

2014 Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver Review

New Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver Review: $299.99

The first thing you notice about Mizuno’s 2014 JPX-EZ Driver release is the welcomed lack of frills. With most contemporary drivers requiring your dad’s toolbox as an accessory, it’s a pleasant surprise to find woods requiring minimal maintenance.

Technology (95 percent)

While the Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver is adjustable with eight hosel settings — four “primary” and four “in-between” — selecting your preferred launch condition is pretty straightforward. You can choose between high, standard and low as well as various sub-settings, such as high/standard and standard/low, to better tailor the launch angle to your swing.

Mizuno claims this ease of adjustability and selection between settings promotes playability for players of varying skill levels.

Of course there are various features that are worth mentioning:

  • Multi-thickness CORTECH face design for a high COR area, or high launching structure, and greater distance.
  • A low profile for low spin no matter the setting.
  • A rebound crown — that allows for increased average ball speed.
  • Sound-tuning fins for unique feel and feedback.

Smart, stylish and playable, I think most will think twice about Mizuno’s drivers after this offering — the JPX-EZ.

Looks (100 percent)

In terms of look, the Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver is easy on the eyes. The attractive jet-black finish contrasts nicely with the ball at address.

The face is generous, but not obscene. The factory standard Fujikura Orochi Black Eye shaft also compliments the club’s profile.

Performance (80 percent)

Never being a proponent of Mizuno’s drivers, I was impressed by the consistent distance and accuracy. The club was forgiving when I missed the sweet spot and offered a satisfying tone.

If I weren’t married to my Titleist 913 D3, I’d probably consider putting this in my bag.

Final Thoughts (overall 92 percent)

Overall, the Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver measures up with its well-advertised cousins — TaylorMade’s R1 and Ping G25 TFC come to mind. Also, with a reasonable retail price of $299.99, it won’t bust your budget. Smart, stylish and playable, I think most will think twice about Mizuno’s drivers after this offering — the JPX-EZ.
