Three straight WINS FOR JPX HOT METAL IN MyGolfSpy’S ‘Most Wanted’ Game Improvement ironS TEST
For a third year running, cult equipment website MyGolfSpy.com has named Mizuno JPX irons ‘Most Wanted’ in the ‘Game Improvement’ category – The JPX 921 Hot Metal taking top spot.
Founded in Osaka, Japan in 1906, Mizuno has long held an enviable industry, and tour-wide reputation for crafting the finest irons on the market. A string of recent awards has confirmed the company’s position as an industry-leader across the iron categories. As well as the ‘Most Wanted’ award for the JPX 921 Hot Metal in the Game Improvement category, MyGolfSpy also recently named Mizuno MP20 HMB irons as ‘Most Wanted’ in the Player’s Distance category with Mizuno JPX 921 Hot Metal Pro and Mizuno JPX 921 Forged irons placed in the top-five.
“We are extremely proud to have MyGolfSpy’s ‘Most Wanted’ award in the Game Improvement category for a third straight year,” said Chris Voshall from Mizuno USA. “The JPX921 Hot Metal is an exceptional product, and this award provides further confirmation that Mizuno is able to produce industry-leading game-improvement irons, as well as the players’ irons we have historically been famous for. It’s a great balance.”
MyGolfSpy claims its test is the world’s most comprehensive, with 14 of the top game-improvement models put to the test and thousands of shots hit with a long, mid and short iron. A proprietary method is used to determine ‘Strokes Gained’ values for each combination of tester and golf club tested. The irons with the highest Strokes Gained values receive ‘Most Wanted’ status.
The Mizuno JPX921 Hot Metal irons performed extremely consistently and were among the leaders in the test for strokes gained in both long and short irons. Testers cited the feel, performance and consistent launch of the JPX921 Hot Metal irons as positives and the general consensus was the irons “checked all the boxes.”
The JPX921 Hot Metal irons deliver Mizuno's fastest ever ball speeds, a piercingly straight ball flight together with controllable landing angles. The JPX921 Hot Metal represent the 3rd generation of Mizuno irons to utilise the resilience of Chromoly – R&D generally accepts that any new technology needs three generations to reach near-optimal performance.
The use of Chromoly 4140M and a re-engineered CORTECH face, now 0.2mm thinner across the centre point, creates exceptional ball speeds. These are further enhanced by the Seamless Cup Face featuring a variable thickness sole design that allows the leading edge to act as a hinge, generating greater flex.
Three additional sound ribs produce a more solid sensation at impact while extreme perimeter weighting and toe bias in Mizuno’s Stability Frame help to deliver greater consistency from off-centre strikes.
"The introduction of Chromoly was the breakthrough Mizuno needed to take a step up in ball speed. We learn more about the potential of Chromoly with each generation and push it further each time,” says David Llewellyn Director of R&D for Mizuno.
Mizuno has become recognised the world over as a clear leader in irons for players of all abilities and this test-winning performance by the JPX921 Hot Metal only serves to enhance that reputation. #ReachBeyond
