Mizuno JPX-800

JPX-800
A serious looking iron designed to be amazingly forgiving and explosively long, the JPX-800™ is the first model to bring Mizuno’s Global JPX technology platform to the United States. The unbelievable distance of the JPX-800 irons is achieved by combining MAX COR Technology, Hot Metal™ Face construction, and an exotic pocket cavity to hit the maximum allowable limits for energy transfer.

Hot Metal construction utilizes a new manufacturing process that increases the material’s natural strength to create and ultra-thin and multi-thickness face for maximum, consistent ball speed, while the innovative pocket cavity with external power bar design expands and extends the sweet area and lowers the center of gravity for unsurpassed forgiveness.

An aggressive triple cut sole ensures solid ball striking from all types of lies, and a multi-material cavity badge provides tuned impact sound with enhanced feel and sharp looks. Simply put, the JPX-800 irons utilize the world’s most advanced Game Improvement technologies to help the serious mid to high-handicap player score like never before!

JPX-800 Pro

JPX-800 Pro
Designed for forgiveness, distance, and feel, the new JPX-800 PRO™ features the highest COR ever developed in a legendary Mizuno one-piece Grain Flow Forged™ iron. A large cavity is created using a CNC cavity milling process which thins the face to raise ball speeds for maximum distance, and optimizes a low, deep center of gravity for increased forgiveness on less than perfect shots.

The JPX-800 PRO delivers a perfectly tuned sound at impact for the ultimate in feel. The kind of soft, solid, consistent feel that’s only attainable through Mizuno’s patented Grain Flow Forging process and exceptional use of Modal Analysis and Harmonic Impact Technology. The JPX-800 PRO is also extremely pleasing to the eye, with a traditional look at address, minimal progressive off-set, thinner top line, and a modest, workable head size. In addition, the sole of the JPX-800 PRO implements an aggressive Triple Cut design that ensures solid ball striking from all types of lies.

The JPX-800 Pro irons deliver the perfect balance of forgiveness, distance, feel and ball control.

CNC cavity milling and “Under Cut Forging” technique creates a thin face that delivers amazing distance and a low deep center of gravity for forgiveness.
Patented Grain Flow Forged® 1025E “Pure Select” mild carbon steel provides the ultimate soft, solid, and consistent feel.
Scientifically designed to optimize sound and feel at impact utilizing Modal Analysis and Harmonic Impact Technology.
Modified U-grooves, which conform to the Condition of Competition 2010, produce the ideal spin rate for maximum playability in all conditions.

MP-63

MP-63
The MP-63 iron is an evolution of Mizuno’s most popular tour iron. The legendary Grain Flow Forging process combines with an innovative Diamond Muscle design to create the perfect blend of feel and control in a “player’s cavity.”

The design goal of the MP-63 was to retain the iconic head profile (head size, top line, offset, sole width), which Mizuno is know for and also prolific on the world’s professional tours, and make an improvement in feel and versatility.

Through the use of Modal Analysis, Mizuno studied vibration simulations of the head and experimented with several methods of affecting the sound and feel at impact. Numerous new concepts were then blind tested by Mizuno’s tour team, including Luke Donald, and the Diamond Muscle Design, which reinforces the head from heel to toe, was the clear winner.

The sole of the MP-63 includes the visible grind on the trailing edge for precise turf interaction that delivers complete shot versatility, and the progressive “player’s cavity” ensures playability in the long irons while delivering pin seeking control in the scoring irons.

MP-53

MP-53
Introducing the new MP-53 irons featuring a Diamond Muscle design and “V” slot Milled Pocket Cavity™. Checking all the boxes required to be an MP model, the MP-53 has the head size, playing profile, and top line to please even the most demanding shotmakers.

But what sets this MP iron apart is an innovative CNC milled Pocket Cavity which removes 14 grams of weight. This weight is strategically redistributed around the cavity to achieve the largest sweet area ever in an MP iron, delivering maximum playability while remaining extremely versatile.

In addition, the MP-53 irons were scientifically designed through Mizuno’s use of Modal Analysis and Harmonic Impact Technology, which perfectly tunes the sound of impact to deliver the ultimate in feel.

Paying close attention to how the sole interacts with the turf, Mizuno applied a 360° grind on the back cavity for increased shot making ability. This unique grind also provides a thinner top line for an eye pleasing look at address. Mizuno’s patented Grain Flow Forging™ process and these advanced design technologies combine in the MP-53 to optimize feel, playability, and performance.

“V” slot CNC Milled Pocket Cavity™ (3-7 irons) redistributes weight to deliver the largest MOI ever in an MP iron.
