Mizuno have announced the launch of its next generation JPX EZ metal woods family, the latest Mizuno metal woods in the illustrious line. The clubs boast a host of design features engineered to break new ground via a combination of adjustability and off-centre forgiveness.
The simplified adjustability and design of the new JPX EZ driver (debuted by Luke Donald in May 2015 at the BMW PGA Championship, Wentworth) allow club golfers to enjoy the combined performance attributes of adjustability and off-centre forgiveness.
While previous movable weight drivers have proved less playable due to the extra weight needed for the tracks and weight ports, the JPX EZ addresses the issue with a simple three-weight system that delivers forgiveness to match non-adjustable models. Slotting a 10g weight in one of the three ports lets golfers instantly change between a draw, neutral or fade bias, with the head’s large ‘footprint’ promoting a high-launching, low-spinning flight.
A more rounded crown further enhances playability by allowing the clubface to flex more freely, generating higher ball speeds and more forgiveness on mishits high in the face. A Quick Switch adjustable hosel provides further scope to optimise loft and launch.
“With the JPX EZ, we now have a second adjustable driver option for players with either a little less ball speed or those who want a bit more stability from off-centre strikes,” says Mizuno club engineer, Chris Voshall. “It’s not a case of ability either. Luke Donald felt more secure with the extra forgiveness, and he’s a better driver than most of us!”
All new JPX EZ woods will be available at retail from 1st February 2016 and RRPs at £349. For further information visit golf.mizunoeurope.com.
