Clubs: 4-GW, 5-SW
Our take: To stand out from the pack in the equipment industry, you need a game-changing design, technology or both. Luckily for Mizuno, JPX 919 Hot Metal is a combination of the two. The iron is anchored by a high-strength Chromoly 4140M steel alloy that allowed for a 360-degree undercut, multi-thickness face and re-engineered sound ribs in the topline developed to hit specific vibration patterns for feedback enhancement at impact. With a sweet spot that’s half a millimeter lower in the 4-iron through 9-iron, lofts were strengthened in the 4- through 7-iron to keep launch angle in line with the previous version while increasing distance at the same time. The set also has a steeper transition into more compact scoring irons and wedges, with set-matching wedges made from X30 steel for feel.
A worthy option for golfers who need hangtime and rpm in their life. Both spin and launch numbers were near the top end during robot trials, and those who tested reported seeing similar characteristics as well.
ClubTester’s take (20-hdcp): “Honestly doesn’t look like a typical game improvement iron to me. Launches high and goes forever, even when I only catch a piece.”
Robot’s take: Expect higher launch and higher spin—and approach shots that stop on a dime.
