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.
The Z 585 is slightly more forgiving and features a high-strength steel face insert in the forged clubhead for higher COR and ballspeed at impact. A new internal “speed groove” behind the clubface further enhances face flex across a larger area of the hitting zone for extra forgiveness on off-center hits.
This extra degree of strength allows for a thinner more flexible clubface and enhanced ball speed at impact. The thinner clubface along with a new hidden micro-slot in the sole not only increases COR but also expands the effective hitting area across a larger area. The micro-slot also allows for more weight to be redistributed for a lower and deeper CG location yielding improved launch on mid and long iron shots.
However it’s also fair to say that the company’s handsome big sticks were somewhat known for being a bit shorter than those of some competitors due to slightly higher spin rates and a design aimed at more control.
The JPX 919 Hot Metal is available in 4-LW in both right and left hand options with a wide variety of premium no-upcharge shafts and grips. All three new JPX 919 irons are available through Mizuno’s Performance Fitting System and can be mixed and matched depending on individual player needs and preferences.
