There is no mistaking the piercing blue heads of the new Mizuno JPX850 woods range and after nearly an hour's fitting at the Mizuno performance centre at Bearwood lakes, where we experimented with different shafts and weight settings in both the Driver and 3-wood, we came up with the perfect settings for my golf game. I then took the driver, fairway wood and rescue on a testing trip to Porto to put them through their paces over 5 very different courses.
Both the 3-wood and rescue clubs use the Shock Wave technology, this new technology lets the entire head flex at impact, again putting extra yards on your shots, but it also saves moving the sweet spot higher up the face, helping you still achieve a nice high launch angle, from the lowered centre of gravity.
This all works with the Waffle Crown technology that has been introduced on the 3-wood and Rescue which produces a low spinning ball, and how Mizuno have managed to lower the centre of gravity for a great launch angle.
While the rescue is has a fixed loft the 3, 5, and 7 fairway-woods utilises the Quick Switch shaft system and you can adjust the loft by up to four degrees – 2 up or 2 down.
The 3-wood was a revelation and I have to say it inspired a lot of confidence, apart from the distance and feel I was getting with the club, it also made me feel I
could get all the distance I needed on longer tighter par-4s where I need to have more control over where I put the ball.
The rescue got me out of trouble a few times, it sits behind the ball perfectly in some pretty horrendous lies and just seems to glide through semi and some tangly rough. I also found it was a go to club on some of the 200-yard plus par 3s into the wind.
The new JPX850 is a wood system I would highly recommend you put on your testing list and make sure you take advantage of going to one of the many performance centres and get your free fitting, believe me you will be glad you did, it's a real eye opener and the added bonus of some swing tips from the professional undertaking the fitting.
