A club lineup that is sure to impress
Mizuno is back with its latest innovations, an impressive 2016 club lineup. From new drivers to new wedges, there’s a little something for everyone. The all new JPX EZ driver is designed to adjust your expectations, offering the ability to dial in your launch trajectory (working with your GolfTEC Coach, of course) without sacrificing forgiveness commonly lost in an adjustable driver. The new S5-wedges are simply superb, delivering an elite feel and shot control with a new Silhouette profile not seen before in Mizuno’s wedges. Luke Donald & Charles Howell both put the S5 wedges in their bag after the first time they hit them! Like many of Mizuno’s popular clubs, the wedges are grain flow forged from a single piece of steel and available in two very eye-catching finishes of “Blue Ion or White Satin.” And with 25 different loft and bounce offerings, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect custom fit in the S5 wedges.
While the new JPX EZ driver and S5-wedges are fantastic, the new irons have us, and many others, very excited. After all, it is said that “Nothing feels like a Mizuno.”
Mizuno JPX EZ irons
The new Mizuno JPX EZ irons offer distance, feel and forgiveness to help “Exceed Everything.” By combining distance from the Hot Metal face design and unbelievable forgiveness from the Power Frame Dual Pocket construction, the feel through Mizuno’s Harmonic Impact Technology is amazing.
Speaking on the Mizuno JPX EZ irons, senior product designer at Mizuno Richard Delvac said, “Distance and forgiveness wise, this iron is a total game changer – especially if feel is important to your game…With JPX EZ, you’re playing much more than a distance and forgiveness iron, you are playing a Feel iron.”
Mizuno JPX EZ Forged irons
Unleash the Boron. The Mizuno JPX EZ Forged irons are special. The use of Boron, while not new in Mizuno irons, has allowed for unique innovation by creating a 30% stronger clubhead material. With the stronger material, Mizuno is able to create a thinner club face for enhanced distance and allowing for the weight savings to be distributed to the four corners of the club to create maximum forgiveness. The JPX EZ Forged irons also feature a Triple Cut Sole to help players cleanly strike the ball from all types of different lies. And with a beautiful black nickel finish, the JPX EZ Forged irons are really something to look at. Mizuno recommends these irons for golfers with a handicap between 8 and 18 but offer flexibility for many different types of golfers. Talk to your GolfTEC Coach to see if the new Mizuno JPX EZ Forged irons are right for you.
You’ve likely heard of Boron in golf clubs occasionally over the last few years, and we don’t see that stopping anytime soon. So what is the real story of Boron in golf equipment? Check out the video below from Mizuno explaining just that.
Recommended for golfers with a handicap between 0 and 10, the Mizuno MP-25 features a stunning tour inspired design and much like the JPX EZ Forged irons, uses Mizuno’s innovative Grain Flow Forged 1025 Boron. Yet another beautifully designed iron from Mizuno, the MP-25’s strike the perfect balance between added distance without sacrificing an ounce of feel or ball control. In the longer irons, the MP-25 feature Micro Slot Technology, which is created by milling the club head from the sole up, helping activate the strength of the Boron for added distance and increased forgiveness.
Club engineer Chris Voshall said, “We started off with a tour-preferred shape and size and didn’t allow ourselves to waver. The use of Grain Flow Forged 1025 Boron made it possible for us to add distance, but keep all the feel and workability that Mizuno players love.”
Last but certainly not least, in the 2016 Mizuno iron lineup is the Mizuno MP-5. An icon refined, the Mizuno MP-5 irons are the ultimate geometric blend of a Mizuno classic muscle back and a players’ cavity design. As most blades and muscle back irons are, the MP-5 is recommended for players within the 0-5 handicap range. But unlike many muscle backs, the MP-5 features what Mizuno is calling Channel Back design, helping distribute the weight in the club head in a unique way. This weight distribution allows for more forgiveness in a club that isn’t commonly known for its forgiveness on off-center strikes. And if nothing else, the MP-5 sure is a simply beautiful golf club to look at.
