M IZUNO’S new JPX900 DRIVER is built on consistently high ball speeds that don’t drop off on mis-hits. Added to that, the JPX900’s shallower profile looks easy to hit, sending all the right messages to the brain. The JPX900 is also Mizuno’s most adaptable driver ever, so you can create the spin rates and launch angle best suited to your ball speed (even if it’s probably a bit faster than you’re used to). Mizuno’s engineers didn’t rest until the JPX900 produced the fastest ball speeds of any driver in the test centre. A newly configured multi-thickness face and clever strengthening of key areas means the JPX900 gives a base for longer drives. Meanwhile, Mizuno’s professionals said even they want drivers that look easy to hit. So the profile was changed to be longer, wider and much shallower than normal. The JPX900 FAIRWAY WOODS close the distance gap to the driver by using Mizuno’s expanding Shockwave Sole to produce prodigious ball speeds with a centrally located, single sliding weight to make it playable for a surprising breadth of swing types. “The fairway wood is one club we all strike really differently,” says Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s senior club engineer. “ To be able to add loft, or move the weight back from the face, makes the JPX900 incredibly versatile. Our Tour players will generally take loft off their 3-wood to use it as a safe driver alternative, so being able to move a little weight away from the face for a touch more spin is even useful for them.” Mizuno’s first adjustable hybrid has a new profile to make the JPX900 HYBRID play more like a long iron. “Most people use hybrids to replace their longer irons, so we are fully committed to making the JPX900 more of a long-iron replacement,” says Tetsu Kanayama, Mizuno’s R&D director. “We’ve made a number of little changes that make it easier to strike like an iron, but with the safety net of the wood-style body attached.” E SPECIFICATIONS: Available in one of seven different shaft options – 9.5° (with a loft range of 7.5° to 11.5°) in men’s right and left-handed; 12.5° (with a loft range of 10.5° to 14.5°) in ladies right- handed. Fairway woods: 15° and 18° lofts in men’s right and left-handed, plus 21° in right-handed; 15°, 18° and 21° lofts in ladies right-handed. Hybrids: 16°, 19°, 22° and 25° lofts in men’s right and left-handed; 22° and 25° lofts in ladies right-handed. thegear BRAINREIGNS MIZUNO JPX900 DRIVER FAIRWAY WOODS & HYBRIDS Available now; RRP: $779 (driver), $499 (fairway woods), $399 (hybrids); mizuno.com.au
