JPX921 Hot Metal Pro

What it does: The shape says better player, but the power and
forgiveness will be appreciated by even the average golfer. Achieving this began with the creation of an extremely thin face – 2.2 millimetres in the centre and as thin as 1.9 millimetres in other spots. Another design highlight is a variable sole geometry that spreads the stress distribution at impact. Although that might sound wonky, the thin area at the leading edge serves as a hinge to transfer some of that stress to the sole and allow the face to flex even more. 

Why we like it: The use of an ultra-strong chromoly steel allowed for a more complex face geometry. This delivers the extra distance necessary to compete in this category. Mis-hits also were addressed through toe-bias weighting to assist with shots struck in that area. One of Mizuno’s true strengths, however, is a steadfast desire to make sure the sound and feel are sublime, especially in a cast club. In this iron that meant a revision to the perimeter undercut cavity in which three extra ribs were added to support the frame for better sound and feel. A variety of shaft options are an important bonus for players seeking to further dial in their iron game.

Reviewer profile

“Straight as a string. The shape of the head had a consistency throughout the set. The thicker topline promotes confidence at address.”
