The mizuno jpx 800 irons rounds out Mizuno’s offerings in a way that has them very excited. But, they’re not running from what makes their name stand out on the rack.
“We feel like we have a very core competency [in the MP line] that we’re never going to leave, but to be a better iron brand, we wanted to focus on the game improvement side,” said Couch. “We can reach out to that 80 percent who the JPX-800 is made for.”
“We were thinking about maximum distance when we designed this iron,” said Chuck Couch, director of marketing for Mizuno USA. “Similar to the coefficient of restitution on a driver [the amount of energy transferred from club to ball at impact], we concerned ourselves with the same thing in these irons.
The best price Mizuno MP-59 irons is most definitely a player’s club, used on the PGA Tour not only by Donald but also by Charles Howell III and Jonathan Byrd. But Close insists that the company has developed a way to make it “play bigger” – in other words, be more forgiving – broadening its appeal to golfers as a result even as it retains the compact head size and shape that tour pros prefer.
Mizuno removes weight from the cavity of the carbon steel, MP-59 heads and moves it to the toe and heel, upping perimeter weighting in the process and enhancing playability. Then, it forges 12 grams of pure titanium into the center of the mizuno mp-64 irons muscle. That is dubbed Ti Muscle technology, and it is designed to create a larger sweet spot while ensuring that there is just the right amount of thickness behind the impact area for what Close describes as “optimal feel.”
