2014 Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons Review
2014 Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons: $899.99
Over the last few years, the Mizuno’s JPX EZ Irons line has offered low- to mid-handicappers a great option to enhance their game. The new release of the Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons series continues its success as the company add another award-winning product to its stable.
By making these improvements over the last version of the JPX iron, Mizuno should compete very well by providing more feel and forgiveness than other game-improvement irons.
There may be other options than the Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons to find more distance or playability. However, if you value feel and forgiveness, this will be a top choice.
First, the JPX EZ Forged Irons feature the traditional grain-flow forged process that consumers come to expect from Mizuno. As a leader in forged irons, Mizuno is able to add the best feel for a game-improvement club.
Second, the Harmonic Impact Technology (H.I.T.) is inserted into the cavity frame to add to the feel and sound of the forged iron.
Finally, a maximum-undercut cavity as well as a multi-face thickness provides more forgiveness with greater ball speeds.
Performance, Look and Feel
The look of the Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons line is the most striking difference to prior JPX models. Featuring black-nickel plating, the new JPX EZ Forged series has a dark-gray finish that does not glare in the sun.
Also, the Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons have additional offset compared to previous models, such as the JPX 825 Pro. The additional offset is slightly noticeable, but really adds to the forgiving nature of the club. The feel of this iron shines when compared to its competition.
The grain-flow forged head gives a soft feel that other game-improvement irons do not feature. The H.I.T. technology ensures that the soft feel and sound is expanded across the face of the club to accommodate the forgiveness of the iron.
The player will notice a miss-hit, but he will not have the severe feedback that would be uncomfortable for the game-improvement player. The overall performance of the club was strong, as the distance was as-expected and remarkably forgiving.
With the JPX EZ Forged Irons the lower-handicap player will not have the playability of the other forged models from Mizuno, but if you are looking to hit the ball straighter — this is a great match.
Mizuno has designed an excellent product for the game improvement market. Featuring a grain-flow forged head, H.I.T. technology and the undercut cavity with the multi-variable face, the EZ Forged Irons Series will impress low- to mid-handicappers
