I'll be doing a review of the new JPX 800 driver from Mizuno. I'm very intrigued by this driver for a couple of reasons, first is Mizuno’s new Ultimate Dynamic Stability (UDS) technology that promises explosive distance from anywhere on the face. Speaking of face, the forged titanium "hot metal" face is something else I can't wait to find out more about.

I'll be getting this out to the range and golf course starting this week, I'll update this thread on my progress toward the homepage review.

Here are some pics:

Really like the look of this driver, very interested to read about the performance too. Only reservation for me is the stock shaft, I've never got on with the Exsar. Perhaps they've improved though. I'll wait and find out!

Just judging this book by the cover - But this driver looks like a fantastic option. I can't wait to hear the review.

On a side note, I have only seen one store carry Mizuno woods. Which is kind of sad to me.

Im with you on this one. Love the looks, but the Exsar line kills me as of late. Liked the one in the MX-700 for a standard offering, but since then, it has been downhill for me.

Nice looking pics. Glad this is getting reviewed as I don't know much about Mizuno woods.

I really like the looks of this driver and am curious how the shaft is. I can't wait to read your thoughts about the shaft and club as a whole.

I'm very intrigued by the pictures, but not blown away at the stock shaft offering myself. I'm hopeful, I'm a Mizuno fan and I gamed a Blue Rage driver for a couple years. It was inexpensive and got great distance for me. So if Mizuno can offer those options in an updated version I'm on board.

Looking forward to it P4B!

Great looking driver. Best one from Mizuno I have seen in a while. I don't know much about the shaft offering so looking forward to your findings.

Im also looking forward to your review. Great looking club. I have the stock shafts in my JPX irons and they seem OK to me but I have nothing to compare to.
