Mizuno JPX-900 Hot Metal Irons: 3 Quick Things
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 10:29:21 AM America/North_Dakota/Center
Mizuno is taking things up a notch this fall with the debut of three stunning new additions to their JPX line. Traditionally, JPX Irons have been geared towards game improvement and forgiveness, but those ridiculously smart engineers over at Mizuno have found some new space-age metal to make this line of Tour, Forged and Hot Metal Irons ones that both tour players and bogey golfers are going to love.
Today, we’re focusing on what we think is probably the coolest new addition to the JPX line: the JPX 900 Hot Metal Irons. Beautiful, quick off the face and forgiving, the Mizuno Hot Metal Irons are definitely worth a look and here’s why:
1. 360 Face Cup Design
A new steel alloy material with the catchy name of Chromoly 4140M allowed Mizuno club designers to create a full 360-degree deep undercut on the back of the iron, giving it the thinnest face in company history at just two millimeters.
What does that mean for you? The face on the Mizuno JPX-900 Hot Metal Irons is incredibly hot. The ball comes off the club face extremely hot, giving you faster ball speeds and more distance.
2. Multi-thickness Face
That funky new Chromoly metal combined with the 360-Face Cup Technology allowed Mizuno club engineers to create a club face with varying thickness and an expanded hitting area.
What does that mean for you? A larger club face means a more forgiving club. In a nutshell, your mis-hits are going to be straighter and shots hit well will show even better results.
3. Power Frame
The face on the JPX-900 Hot Metal Irons is incredibly thin and it’s kept strong with Mizuno’s Power Frame. This technology allows for more mass to be pushed towards the outside of the club head for incredible MOI.
What does that mean for you? This golf club sounds sweet! The sound at impact is one of the best we’ve heard and that definitely inspires confidence. More importantly, the increase in MOI means that the ball springs off the face with incredible speed giving you more distance.
Who are the Mizuno JPX-900 Hot Metal Irons for?
Mizuno actually removed their handicap spectrum with the new lines of clubs, so they aren’t specifically recommending the Hot Metal Irons for a specific golfer. That being said, the club face is a bit smaller than previous JPX generations, which better players will appreciate, while the new technology makes it a more forgiving iron, which is great for mid-high handicap golfers.
Mid-handicap golfers (5-16 handicaps) will probably see the biggest benefit from these irons, but better players and players with high handicaps could also benefit from the forgiving and fast technology. Your best bet is to meet with a Mizuno Certified Custom Fitter where you can test the Mizuno Hot Metal Irons along with several options to find the best club for your game.
