New irons from Mizuno being launched today featuring 3 different sets. The JPX919 Tour, JPX919 Hot Metal and JPX919 Forged each engineered from different materials for particular swing types.
The JPX919 Tour promises tour-caliber performance with precision distance control. It is a more compact, streamlined evolution of Mizuno’s JPX900 Tour iron from 2017/18, which has seen a steady gain in popularity. Grain Flow Forged HD (High Density) from a single billet of 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel in Hiroshima Japan, the JPX919 Tour offers the softest, purest Mizuno feel yet.
Availability: 3-PW / RH only
MSRP: $1,200 8-piece set / $150 club
JPX919 Hot Metal
High-strength Chromoly 4140M has paved the way to a new multi-thickness face that is done to promote ball speed, while a seamless one-piece cup face construction is done to provide a different level of feedback to go along with forgiveness.
It shares the JPX919 Tour’s new stability frame, which is open at the heel portion to enhance stability, launch and a loft-appropriate flight apex for controlled, soft-landing approaches. Re-engineered Sound Ribs have been developed to hit specific vibration patterns to enhance feel, with the JPX919 Hot Metal featuring the same Pearl Brush finish as the JPX919 Tour.
Availability: 4-LW / RH & LH
MSRP: $1,000 8-piece set / $125
A new reverse-milled clubface, CNC-milled from the sole up to create a larger area of minimum face thickness, makes the streamlined JPX919 Forged Mizuno’s fastest one piece forged iron Mizuno has ever made. The resulting weight removed from the face also allows a lower, deeper center of gravity making it easier to flight the long and mid-irons.
Like the JPX919 Tour and JPX919 Hot Metal the JPX919 Forged features the Pearl Brush finish and a stability frame, open at the heel portion to enhance stability. The Forged model is Grain Flow Forged HD (High Density) from a single billet of 1025B mild carbon steel in Hiroshima Japan, with just a trace of Boron infused into the billet to make it 30% stronger.
Availability: 4-GW / RH & LH
MSRP: $1,300 8-piece set / $163 club
