We Tried It: Mizuno’s Hot New Woods

When it comes to equipment, Mizuno has been a top contender in the forged-iron category for what seems like forever. Year after year, they crank out irons that not only look like works of art, but also, in the right hands, perform as good as an iron possibly can. But this go-around, we wanted to take a look at something else Mizuno has been doing really well. You may not think of metalwoods when you think of Mizuno, but we're here to tell you it's time to change your thinking. The latest crop of woods from Mizuno don't disappoint, as we found out during some hands-on testing with a driver, fairway wood and hybrid club

JPX-800 Driver

Looks And Feel: The forged, all-titanium JPX-800 driver is a real treat to look at. Its dark navy-blue finish sits well in the bright sun, and the shaping of the club makes it easier to align than a traditional pear-shaped driver would be. (The JPX-800 has more of a triangular, modern head shape.) When combined with a custom white Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki shaft, the driver almost has a nautical look to it. As for how it feels, we expected this driver to feel great, and it does. The feel on solid shots resembles what a forged iron from Mizuno feels like: smooth and buttery. Off-center hits felt slightly firmer, but the Ultimate Dynamic Stability and Hot Metal face technologies really made the sweet spot feel huge. We hardly missed.

Performance: Hitting the JPX-800 Driver was quite a surprise. From a company that tends to make irons designed for better players (except for the new JPX-800 irons, which are insanely long and forgiving), we expected this driver to cater more toward lower-handicappers and be a little more challenging to wield. We've even read the reviews of this driver from other sources, claiming the ball flew lower and with modest distance. Dare we say, we disagree with that assessment. We found this driver was both easy to hit and flew higher than several other drivers we've tried this year. Maybe it was the finely tuned Fubuki shaft, the 45.5-inch shaft length, or just plain ol' good design, but this driver was easy to align and flew really straight. Best of all, we found shots hit with this driver to be very consistent in terms of ballflight (moderate to high) and spin rate (moderate.)

Bottom Line: In the midst of adjustable-driver tech, it's good to know you can still buy a great driver without adjustability features. The JPX-800 is as straightforward as it gets in terms of clean aesthetics, ample forgiveness and distance on both solid and off-center hits. Thanks to a square face angle, this driver showed some maneuverability as well, which is ideal for players who like to shape shots. It's a top pick among nonadjustable drivers for 2011.

Pros: Solid feel, surprisingly forgiving on off-center hits.

Cons: No left-landed models, and we question the need for that extra long shaft.
