Golf Equipment test and review: Mizuno JPX EZ Fairway Wood, Face

I tested the JPX EZ a couple of years ago so I was looking forward to taking the updated version with me to Brazil and while I loved the black and gold finish of the 2014 model, I have to say on first glace when unwrapping the 2016 version I do love the low profile moody gun metal/silver finish. It has that feeling of “I’m here to take care of business” look.

Technology:

If like me you played the 2014 model the first thing you will notice is that the shape of the head is bigger but it has a shallower face. There are two reasons for this firstly at address the larger head inspires confidence but by extending the Shockwave sole around the club head it helps add weight to the heel and toe and with the extra mass in the sole lowers the centre of gravity.

The Shockwave sole also helps the head contract and expand at impact and with that additional power impacting on the ball - and in conjunction with the HT 1770 high-strength steel face insert - all help to achieve faster ball speeds off the face, increasing distance, stability and giving you a higher ball flight.

The waffle crown inside the head has given the designers that ability to move that extra weight into the sole which helps the Shockwave technology produce that higher more forgiving ball flight. The fairway woods and hybrids both use Mizuno’s “Quick Switch” hosel feature, allowing you to adjust the club up or down by 2°.

Fairway woods 15°, 18° and 21°

Hybrids 16°, 19°, 22° and 25°

Conclusion


Like the driver what I really enjoyed about the 3-wood and hybrid in the EZ range is the solid sound at impact and the ball flight on both clubs was high and strong with some real penetration. I also loved the gunmetal/silver finish and the shallower head design, both clubs really sit behind the ball well and inspire confidence. Like the driver I believe the choice between going for the JPX EZ model or the JPX850 is going to be down to personal preference, but having tested both no matter what range you go with, you will have made the right choice.
