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.
A significant key to the Hot Metal design is the use of stronger and more expensive Chromoly rather than carbon steel in the manufacturing process. The stronger material allows for a multi-thickness cup face for more ball speed and distance than the previous 900 Hot Metal as well as redesigned sound ribs in the cavity for precisely tuned vibration and feel at impact.
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.
In addition a thinner clubface which is six grams lighter and the fastest of any Titleist driver thus far significantly increases ball speed at impact. The new lighter and thinner face is actually so thin the scoring lines need to be created by a laser. If you’re looking for a combination of distance and forgiveness the TS2 could definitely be the ticket.
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.
