If you read the last issue you will know I put the JPX900 driver to the test in St Kitts and Nevis back in February and now it was the turn of the 3-wood and hybrid for the two weeks of testing in Louisiana and South Wales.


Both the fairway wood and hybrid use the Shockwave sole technology which contracts on impact and then expands back into shape releasing all that energy back into the ball for added distance.

Both clubs also use the Quick Switch system and are adjustable by 4° and come with the Fujikura speeder evolution 2 as standard.

Both clubs also have a low profile design and sit behind the ball perfectly and with the shockwave sole and the extra mass being put low in the clubhead all help with forgiveness and achieving a higher launch angle.


A lot of players with faster swing speeds found that they had a problem hooking the ball, so Mizuno have now designed the club so it's a little shorter and flatter, which makes it easier to hit for better players.


I was slightly miffed that I didn’t get to test the orange Fujikura Speeder evolution 2 shaft mainly because it looked cool, but the Fujikura Six shaft from a strike point of view was just as good with its mid–high trajectory ball flight.

What I did like about both clubs that was the same as the driver was the acoustics at impact, you just could hear the ball crush out of the middle of the face. The Fujikura Six shaft certainly produce a penetrating but high ball flight and with the low profile design both clubs sat behind the ball beautiful inspiring confidence.

Several of my playing partners across both testing’s commented on how they liked the way the club sat behind the ball and the design of the head, but the stand out for everyone is that matt blue finish, it really is a winner.

Mizuno have always been known for their forged irons, but the JPX900 woods with all the technology and design are now right up their with the irons and you need to make sure you put them on your testing list when making your next decision to buy.
