Mizuno lanserar nu nya JPX923-serien som består av fem unika järnklubbor framtagna med data från hundratusentals verkliga golfsvingar. Samtidigt släpper man nya hybriden JPX Fli-Hi.
Mizunos nya JPX923-serie är järnklubbor utvecklade för prestanda med en optimal kombination av utseende, känsla och kontroll. Hela serien levererar exceptionell prestanda för alla spelare, från tourspelare till höghandicppare.
I serien finns fem unika modeller tillverkade i tre specifika metaller och utvecklade med Swing DNA-data där 40 unika datapunkter registreras varje gång en golfspelare testar järnklubbor.
De fem modellerna är JPX923 Tour med nytt V-Chassis och tunnare topplinje, JPX923 Forged med tredje generationen av Mizunos Chromoly Forging och JPX923 Hot Metal, JPX923 Hot Metal Pro samt JPX Hot Metal HL som alla har nytt, hetare 4335 Nickel Chromoly, vilket är 35 procent starkare än Mizunos ursprungliga Chromoly.
Samtidigt lanseras nya JPX Fli-Hi som en sömlös ersättare för långa järn och mellanjärn i setet. Den bredare formen och multimaterialkonstruktionen gör den mer lättspelad än någon tidigare hybrid från Mizuno.
De olika modellerna beskrivs nedan i materialet från Mizuno:
JPX923 Tour / Layers of Feel Consistently Mizuno’s most-played iron model in professional golf and still one-piece Grain Flow Forged in Hiroshima Japan from 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel, the JPX923 Tour adds a copper underlay for an even smoother sensation at impact. The JPX923 Tour also presents a narrower top line and sole in tandem with more rounded trailing edge for cleaner turf interaction. Player enhancements made possible through the introduction of Mizuno’s new ‘V-Chassis’.
The JPX923 Tour is a shallow cavity suitable for elite amateurs and professionals, featuring refined scoring irons that are more compact with a noticeably shorter blade length from 6-iron to GW for precision where it’s most needed. The irons are finished with a non-reflective white-satin brush.
“The goal was to engineer a compact, players cavity back that looked and felt like a muscleback at impact. With the copper underlay and new topline, the JPX923 Tour is right there,” says David Llewellyn.
Availability: 4-GW RH FEBRUARY 2023 JPX923 Forged / Solid Feel, Real Speed A mid-sized, full body Grain Flow Forged iron delivering a perfect balance of ball speed, stability, and feel. Our 3rd generation of Chromoly Forging (4-7 iron) incorporates a milling slot that extends wider to heel and toe. Paired with an even thinner clubface it creates our highest one-piece Forged ball speeds from an even greater portion of the clubface. The irons showcase a thinner top line throughout, plus compact scoring irons (8-GW) and bevelled sole for improved turf interaction.
The JPX923 Forged is a mid-size cavity iron suitable for a wide range of players, from professionals to mid-handicap amateurs. The 4-7 iron are Forged from a single billet of 4120 Chromoly and back milled from to heel and toe. This creates extreme ball speeds from a compact workable profile. The face thickness is now reduced to just 2.2 mm behind impact compared to 2.6mm in the JPX921 Forged. The 8-iron to GW are forged from 1025E Pure Select mild carbon steel for ultimate precision, control and feel in the scoring zone. 8-iron to GW are more compact with shorter blade length for further control.
“The new JPX923 Forged pulls off two impressive achievements. First it feels more solid even though it’s faster from the face. Second, it looks sleeker with a thinner topline and narrower sole even though it plays more forgiving,” says Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s Director of Product.
Availability: 4-GW RH and LH FEBRUARY 2023
JPX923 Hot Metal / Our Fastest Flying, Fast Stopping Irons Introducing Nickel Chromoly – A new material with so much additional ball speed, our engineers switched their focus to feel and stopping power. At 35% stronger than our original Hot Metal material, 4335 Nickel Chromoly enables a high-energy 8% thinner clubface. Combined with Mizuno’s vibration controlling V-Chassis and deep CG design, the JPX923 Hot Metal irons are as enjoyable and controllable as they are long. The seamless cup face construction delivers the deep centre of gravity needed for a high launch and controllable landing angle for increased stopping power whilst the thinnest part of the sole has been extended 18% wider to create a wider high-energy area on the face for more consistent ball speeds.
There are three fitting options – Hot Metal Pro, Hot Metal and Hot Metal HL (High Launch.) 175,000 real golf swings recorded via Mizuno’s Swing DNA system every year highlighted the need for variable launch options.
“There are so many different kinds of players looking for increased ball speed from their irons, we needed more options for them at a fitting level. The custom studios use shaft selection incredibly well to help with launch angle or slower swing speeds, but the JPX923 Hot Metal HL gives them a great new tool to work with,” says Chris Voshall.
JPX923 Hot Metal Pro is a player’s speed cavity that’s compact, with minimal offset for confident ball-strikers seeking maximum ball speed. It’s suitable for low to mid handicap golfers.
JPX923 Hot Metal is a forgiving speed cavity suitable for mid to high handicap golfers. It features a full speed, high stability cavity for straight flight and distance.
JPX923 Hot Metal HL is a high launch speed cavity delivering a higher launching option for players with moderate swing speeds or aggressive shaft lean, it’s suitable for mid to high handicap golfers.
Availability JPX923 HOT METAL PRO: 4-PW RH and LH JPX923 HOT METAL: 4-LW RH and LH JPX923 HOT METAL HL: 5-SW RH only SEPTEMBER 2022
