Mizuno JPX-800 Pro Reviews

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

These clubs provide an impeccably tuned sound at impact for the ultimate in feel. 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 has an aggressive Triple Cut design that allows for solid ball striking from all types of lies on the golf course.
