Though Mizuno is best known for the better-player blades it produces, the equipment maker also prides itself on the so-called game improvement irons it offers – such as the new JPX-EZ and JPX-EZ Forged.
The most notable feature of the forged version is the 1025 boron steel that company engineers use in it. They say that material is 30 percent stronger than typical carbon steel, which allows them to thin out the clubface in an effort to improve distance.
The weight savings in that area also gives them the ability to add weight in the four corners of the cavity for enhanced forgiveness.
In addition, a softly beveled leading edge and hard-cut trailing edge are designed to improve turf interaction.
