Club:Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal Pro Irons
Shaft: Project X 60 Flex: Stiff Set: 4-PW
The JPX919 Hot Metal Pro irons share the same stability frame that has made the Tour model so popular on tours throughout the world with contracted and non-contracted players. The open heel portion helps to enhance stability and has a launch angle that helps achieve a soft landing on approach shots, re-engineered sound ribs add that solid strike and feel you expect from a Mizuno iron.
The irons are designed with a high-strength Chromoly 4140M steal helping Mizuno achieve a multi thickness impact surface that works with the seamless construction one-piece cup face, which gives fantastic ball speeds even on off-centre strikes.
The Hot metal pro have a steeper transition from the longer irons to the scoring irons and wedges with Mizuno producing set-matching gap, sand and lob wedges which are engineered from a softer X30 steel and have precision-milled grooves for increased spin and control for shots around the green.
After testing the Tour model in Mauritius in December and playing with them ever since I was looking forward to testing this model and I will say straight from the off that they were fantastic, to the point one of the Golf Monthly guys who was on the first part of this testing trip in Germany said as we walked off the Beckenbuier course our second 18-holes of the day “You were certainly flag chasing today”
And I have to say that is down the forgiveness that has been engineered into these irons with the stability frame and the wider sole giving fantastic turf interaction. Looking down at address the irons have a thicker top line than the Tour model, but it certainly isn’t to the detriment of the beautiful curves the designers have produced.
The Hotel Metal Pro does give you greater distances than the Tour model the ball does really rocket off the face, but you don’t lose any of that feel and solid strike acoustic at impact. These are great clubs and if you a looking for a beautifully crafted set of irons with fast ball speeds off the face for added distance that retain feel and give a pure strike at impact, then you need to get the JPX 919 Hot Metal Pros in your hands.
