The Mizuno JPX-800 Pro forged Irons model, says Mizuno, offers a different option for serious golfers with a unique combination of CNC milling and under cut forging that thin the face for improved energy transfer.Mizuno set a lofty goal for the JPX-800 Irons: To be the longest, most forgiving iron in the company’s history. The JPX-800, in fact, gained 3 mph ball speed and 7 yards total distance in head-to-head tests with MX-200 irons. Mizuno’s “Hot Metal” construction is a strengthening process that leads to an extra-thin clubface and triggers hotter ball speed. A multitiered pocket cavity expands the sweet spot and lowers the center of gravity for improved forgiveness.
The Mizuno JPX-800 irons are a big jump into the game improvement category for Mizuno Golf. Sure- they have other irons in this space (MX-1000, MX-300) but most people know and respect Mizuno most for their game-enhancing line of muscle back and blade irons known for their amazing feel and precisionthere was a big gap between the MX-1000’s and the MP lines of clubs and the JPX-800’s a full-fledged jump into that space, providing 8 to 24 handicappers with a truly remarkable option; a club with the feel Mizuno is known for combined with the game improvement qualities desired by many of us like forgiveness and increased distance.
