Mizuno’s JPX923 Solid (4-GW) is accessible in February in each proper and left-handed for $187.50 per membership. The JPX923 Tour (4-GW) is right-hand-only and retails for $187.50 per membership.
After a lot anticipation and teasing, Mizuno is formally unveiling the all-new JPX923 Solid and Tour irons, constructed to push the boundaries of supplies, forgiveness, and tour-level precision shot-making.
The brand new Tour and Solid irons spherical out Mizuno’s JPX923 iron lineup, which gives their most complete becoming program ever.
“The brand new JPX923 sequence was deliberate out with Mizuno’s customized ethos at its core. We already provide greater than 50 distinctive shafts inside our customized program, by increasing to 5 iron fashions, there’s a really perfect mixture for each kind of participant.”
—David Llewellyn, Director of R&D for Mizuno
When most golfers take into consideration Mizuno, they consider solid irons, and when Mizuno places the phrase “solid” on an iron — they imply it.
Reasonably than resort to utilizing a number of supplies to make a quick and forgiving participant’s iron, Mizuno engineers opted to have a look at totally different supplies to create pace with out sacrificing really feel.
To do that, the JPX923 Solid is comprised of two totally different supplies all through the set. The 4-7 irons use a solid 4120 Chromoly, which permits the growth of the milled pocket within the cavity and a thinner membership face to extend ball speeds and subtly increase MOI. Alternatively, the 8-GW are solid from the identical 1025E Pure Choose delicate carbon metal because the JPX923 Tour irons for precision and management.
“The brand new JPX923 Solid pulls off two spectacular achievements. First, it feels extra stable although it’s quicker from the face. Second, it seems sleeker with a thinner topline and narrower sole although it performs like a extra forgiving membership”
—Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s Director of Product.
To place into perspective what the brand new materials permits engineers to do with the face and cavity of the JPX923 Solid, the face thickness is now simply 2.2 mm behind affect in comparison with 2.6mm within the earlier JPX921 Solid. In a world of fine-tuned manufacturing, 4 millimeters is loads!
To reinforce the JPX923 seems from deal with, the irons have a thinner high line by way of the complete set, in addition to a extra compact blade size into the 8-iron to the hole wedge for improved turf interplay and combo set mixing.
Solid participant’s cavity again irons are all about providing precision management, with confidence-inspiring seems and really feel. Because the first iteration of the JPX Tour iron with the unique JPX900 sequence, Mizuno engineers have been consistently tweaking the designs based mostly on participant suggestions to ship on the promise of efficiency, and as soon as once more they’re upping the sport relating to really feel.
Similar to with the latest MP (Mizuno Professional) irons together with the 221, the brand new JPX923 Tour irons are incorporating a copper underlay to associate with one-piece Grain Circulation Solid 1025E Pure Choose delicate carbon metal development. This Copper underlay which was made well-known in iconic Mizuno irons just like the TN-87’s gives a extra compressed acoustic at affect to create a fair smoother really feel.
“The purpose was to engineer a compact, gamers cavity again that regarded and felt like a muscle again at affect. With the copper underlay and new topline, the JPX923 Tour is true there.”
— David Llewellyn.
Different enhancements to the design of the JPX923 Tour embrace a redesigned V-Chassis to distribute mass away from the middle of the pinnacle to extend stability, a thinner topline and extra compact scoring irons (6-GW) for higher shot-shaping management and turf interplay.
Mizuno S23 wedges
When engineers are designing wedges they’re out to maximise two essential parameters — spin and flexibility.
The brand new S23 wedges from Mizuno obtain most spin because of the loft particular quad minimize grooves milled into the Boron-infused 1025 delicate carbon metal and Mizuno’s laser-etched HydroFlow Micro Grooves to channel moisture away from the affect zone quicker for decreased spin loss in moist situations.
The second a part of the spin and flexibility equation is the S23’s distinctive cavity shaping and profile overhaul. The wedges optimize a shorter hosel and a heel facet to push an excessive quantity of mass in direction of the toe. This toe-sided pad creates a superbly centered candy spot for excellent trajectory management on photographs hit all around the face and fewer deflection at affect which is a results of the upper MOI.
“That verify and spin you see from the professionals isn’t purely due to newer grooves – most of us don’t have the consistency of strike to get that type of motion. For the overwhelming majority, a centralized candy spot makes it a lot simpler to search out and get that repetitive spin management.”
—David Llewellyn, Director of R&D for Mizuno.
