Players of a certain generation speak fondly of the days when metal spikes kilties and wing-tip designs dominated the shoe market. How quickly these golfers have forgotten the heaviness and off-grass instability of old-school footwear.
Now Mizuno is launching a newly revamped JPX 919 line with a traditional look and impressive technologies that make the three new models worth a serious look for players of all handicap levels.
Since then however the JPX 900 models most notable the Forged Tour have been a huge hit with all kinds of players including two-time US Open champ Brooks Koepka.
Other features of the new Hot Metal include the aforementioned “stability frame” design for higher MOI and improved launch as well as Mizuno’s new Pearl Brush non-glare finish.
But when the company introduced the JPX line a few years back some questioned the look of the matte finish and where the new sticks fit in with the vaunted MP line.
