MIZUNO JPX921 TOUR gold

MIZUNO JPX921 TOUR

The Verdict:

 Mizuno’s iron selection is so extensive that it sometimes can be difficult to figure out which model is best suited for your game. However, for the most skilled players, Mizuno’s choices are a little more clear, and this iron should be at the top of the list. The JPX921 Tour is a terrific follow-up to the JPX900 Tour and JPX919 Tour. It’s a compact, muscle-cavity blade that’s similar in shape to those previous models (the result of tour-player feedback).

The irons are forged from soft 1025E carbon steel, then put through a proprietary heating process to concentrate the grain in the center area of the face for maximum feel. There is less weight in the toe than previous Mizuno Tour irons, but that saved weight has been moved to the club’s perimeter for improved stability, as well as to reinforce the center of the club for enhanced feel at impact. The sole width progresses throughout the set—wider soles in the long irons to boost height and narrower soles in the short irons for better workability for the shotmaker in all of us. Mizuno’s stock set for this iron starts with a 4-iron, which follows the trend seen on the PGA Tour, where 3-irons that match the set are becoming nearly extinct.

COMMENTS

Low-Handicapper Might be the most forgiving iron in this category. Good turf interaction and easier to hit the long irons and get some air under the ball.
Mid-Handicapper A sharp looking club. Extremely good sound and feel at impact.
High-Handicapper Great control of the flight of the ball. A soft feel at impact, even with the blade-like face.
