Design Details

Built on the foundation of the highly regarded JPX 850 Forged, which was our first integration of Boron, the JPX 900 Forged makes 'across the board' enhancements that improve the look, feel and distance, with new levels of ball speeds from a forged iron. Delivering on ball speed and forgiveness, with a more compact playable design, the 900 forged provides the ultimate balanced attack.

Tech Specs

Benefits from Boron:

  • 1025 Boron is roughly 30% stronger than 1025E, allowing thinner, hotter, more extreme geometry.

  • Increased strength of Boron material frees up discretionary weight to be more optimally used.

  • Grain Flow Forging process delivers soft, solid, consistent feel.

NEW CORTECH Design:

  • Multi-Thickness Face Allows for higher ball speed retention on off center hits

  • Oriented to optimizer rebound and ball speeds on center impacts

  • Large rebound area combined with COR Tech helps deliver a new level of COR for a forged iron

Reshaped Pocket Cavity:

  • Thinnest area of sole extended in both the Toe and Heel directions for more ball speed across the face

  • 21.5 grams removed to be redistributed to the Power Frame for forgiveness and stability

Mizuno's brand reputation
True Performance Irons
I am currently a 12 hcp and dropping. I have been as low as an 8.6 when I was able to play 2-3 times a week. I gave up the game for several years because life got in the way. I started playing again about 3 years ago. When I stopped playing I was using Titleist 735-CM irons. I got back into it slowly (a round per month) and I found it too difficult to hit the clubs I once played and loved. I decided to buy new clubs a couple years back to make it more enjoyable and I found myself looking into "game improvement" clubs. I had always liked the way Mizuno products looked and their reputation as a top quality club didn't hurt. Having always played "player type" clubs it was difficult to swallow my pride and actually purchase a game improvement iron but I did and settled on the cast JPX850's. The performance sparked an immediate gain in confidence and I rejoined the NCGA to get an index. I started back at a 16 Hcp and was very inconsistent having lost all feel and technique. The 850's were an amazing club and I immediately started dropping strokes per round. With lots of practice and a new found confidence I dropped my index to 13 and decided to take the jump back to a players club. I had heard Mizuno was coming out with new irons and decided to wait for their new release. As soon as demo clubs were available I was able to hit them in the simulator. The performance was exactly what I had come to expect from Mizuno. I went thru a complete professional fitting and purchased the JPX900 Forged w/ Project X LZ 6.0 steel shafts. First round out of the box was an 82. After just 3 rounds of play with these clubs my, index dropped from a 12.6 to a 12.1. I expect the scores to keep dropping. These clubs inspire confidence with their compact look, perimeter weighting and the responsive feel. They are extremely forgiving for a players club. I have even managed to start working the ball again. I play a tiny draw but can easily put a controlled fade on the ball. They are easy to flight the ball when needed. The distance is exceptional. I can't say enough good things about these clubs other than, Mizuno...you hit a home run with these clubs!

I just bought the JPX 900 Forged irons and love them. The salesman described hitting them as "butter" and after 1 round, I agree with him.

Blow Away!!
I've been a Ping guy for 20 years. After going to be fit for a new set of Ping I200 irons which honestly I didn't need. I asked my fitter a very good friend of mine "before I spend the money for a new set of sticks is there anything else I should hit?" He put the jpx 900 forged in my hand and I was blown away!!! My ball speeds and carry distance jumped dramaticly. The comparisons of feel and sound vs the PING wasn't even close. I must say I loved my pings and have played my best golf with them but am super excited for what's to come with my new Mizzy's. After only one range session I can tell you I'm in love! Great job Mizuno.

Great clubs
I have gone from Callaway X-22 to Taylormade Speed blades as my HCI has dropped. This is my first venture away from game improvement irons to better player irons. The quality of these along with the look and feel are top notch. Getting fit for the correct shaft makes a huge difference. I went with the PJX 6.0 instead of the 5.5 because of the accuracy. Looking back i should have gone with the 5.5 shaft that is the stiff shaft instead of the 6.0 X stiff. I feel I may be losing some distance with the 6.o by 5-7 yards. Still early so not definite answer yet. Overall these are great clubs

What handicap spectrum is the JPX 900 Forged? The JPX 800 Forged was 6-15
A shopper on Sep 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: BEST ANSWER : "We have recently removed the handicap spectrum from our irons. We believe in visiting one of our authorized retailers and going through a fitting with our fitting system"=== THIS ANSWER IS RIDICULOUS!!
When the clubs were designed ,I am sure there was a handicap spectrum that was in the minds of the designers at Mizuno, Yet when asked now, you refer them to a fitting?? Are you kidding ? Most guys who are asking this probably already have /know their handicap and what type clubs fit into their "wheelhouse" Just giving the guys a generalized idea of what range was in mind when developing the 900 models of clubs is not "swearing you in under oath" to just giving the general HC range on them. You would prefer to make them make take time to schedule , then make a trip to a fitting to go through an entire process = possibly again , only to find out the range intended with 900 is not in their lineup?? When all you had to do is give a generalized HC range on here so they can decide for themselves if yes,or no a fitting is or is not a good idea for them to follow up with on 900's and maybe save someone some time and effort ? People work, People have busy lives== NOT a great way to support a loyal following--or bring in the new. Given the massive offerings out there today ,MANY people will read this answer you gave , and then the sound after that you hear will be the mouse click on their computer--as they move on to the NEXT clubs out there to look at.==Where they can get some solid answers on what is a VERY simple question they asked . #mind boggling answers #a little help to save time
I'm currently playing the MP-25s and love them. What's intriguing to me about the JPX-900 Tours is a thinner topline, marginally softer feel and marginally smaller overall head size. What is the difference in actual head weight between the MP-25s and the 900 Tour?

In the jpx 900 forged and hot metal irons, how do you add weight in the head to get a swing weight of D-3?, with a shaft of 105. I have a hip issue and have a tendancy to use my upper body, having said this, a heavier head helps me hit the ball in the center of the club face. Thanks Jim U

Which iron best replaces the mx-23?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2016

Is it possible to have a combo with JPX 900 forged and JPX 900 tour?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are able to place a combo set of JPX 900 Forged irons as well as JPX 900 Tour irons of your choice through a custom order with any of our Mizuno authorized retailers.
When will the JPX 900 be available to hip? Availability with custom shafts, as well?
Franklin L on Sep 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All new JPX-900 products will be in retail stores by September 16th. We will be accepting pre-orders up until the release date.
In regards to a comparison between the forgivingness of the tour and forged compared to the MP-59s, what are your thought? Are the MP59s harder to hit than the JPX Tours? I am just looking for a little more forgiving better players iron and might mix the JPX Tours and Forgeded. Thanks!

JPX 900 FORGED 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX 900 FORGED 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX 900 Tour Irons
JPX 900 Tour Irons
BEST ANSWER: If you want to stick with a forged iron, I would recommend the JPX 900 Forged, it would be more forgiving than the Tour because there is more weight distributed towards the parameters of the club compared to your MP-59's. The amount of forgiveness this iron provides I believe it would be a great choice. Outside of a forged iron, do not count out the New JPX Hot Metal Irons as a great choice for you even though it is a cast iron. Overall, the top line and sole of the JPX Hot Metal iron is slightly larger due to the added perimeter weighting throughout the iron to produce more forgiveness on off center hits as compared to the JPX 900 Forged. Due to the fact that the Hot Metals were designed to be more forgiving than both the Forged and Tour versions of the 900 series, there is added offset to complement golfers who prefer this.
I am currently playing the JPX 850 Forged and I Love Them...BUT I just hit the JPX 900 Forged and they feel great. What is the biggest differences between the 2 irons? They seem to be a little longer. Are they more forgiving? They appear to be just a little smaller? If they are smaller how can they be more forgiving? Mizuno fan for life.
A shopper on Jan 9, 2017
Is the JPX forged a game improvement club? I'm a 13 handicap just wondering if the hot metal would be a better fit for me
Mark R on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Overall, the top line and sole of the JPX Hot Metal iron is slightly larger due to the added perimeter weighting throughout the iron to produce more forgiveness on off center hits as compared to the JPX 900 Forged. As far as the lofts in these irons is concerned, both have the same consistent degree of lofts from the 4 iron-Gap Wedge but you will see a higher initial launch with the Hot Metals compared to the Forged, depending on shaft of course. Due to the fact that the Hot Metals were designed to be more forgiving than both the Forged and Tour versions of the 900 series, there is added offset to complement golfers who prefer this. With your handicap I would suggest hitting both clubs as your handicap range could play both. I would also consider trying a combo set, consider the longer irons 4,5,6 in the hot metal and the "scoring irons" 7,8,9,PW in the 900 forged. This has been a very popular custom order for handicaps in your range.
MP54 vs JPX 900 forged?
CAROL K on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The JPX-900 forged will be a more forgiving model than the MP-54 model, and will most likely also offer a little extra distance.
Where are the lofts for the clubs found?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Here are the lofts for the JPX-900 Forged Irons

4iron=21*
5iron=24*
6iron=27*
7iron=31*
8iron=35*
9iron=40*
PW=45*
GW=50*
I would like to do a combo set of JPX 900 tour and JPX 900 forged. What would be the best way to verify distances since lofts are little different?
pg8328 on Feb 14, 2017
JPX 900 FORGED 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX 900 FORGED 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX 900 Tour Irons
JPX 900 Tour Irons
BEST ANSWER: Our Forged clubs can be bent +/- 2 degrees in loft. You can either decreases the loft of the JPX 900 Forged irons by 2 degrees to match which will create a higher ball flight and possibly increase the spin rate. Or you can increase the loft of the JPX 900 Tour irons by two degrees to match which will create a lower ball flight and possibly decrease the spin rate. Just depends on your personal preference.
What iron best replaces the MP 58?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The MP-15's are the closest specification match to the MP-58's. The MP-15 is a very compact player's iron, but with stability from off center strikes to provide forgiveness when needed. The MP-58's were designed for the same purpose but the MP-15's have updated technology created to increase distance and forgiveness.
Do you offer a project x 6.0 (not LZ)? It appears you only offer a 5.0 and a 6.5. Why skip 6.0?
Jeff C on Jan 5, 2017

What will swing weight be if I order 7 through P, JPX 900 Forged, with Project X LZ Graphite 4.5 Reg flex, 1/2" long?
John M on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you were to add 1/2 inch in length to your JPX 900 Forged irons our custom system would automatically default to "B" weight head which is approx. 7 grams lighter than our "A" weight head we use in our standard length clubs. We do this to maintain a consistent D2 swing weight when length is added. With that being said, your clubs with that 70 gram graphite shaft and the "B" head weight, you would most likely be D0 depending on the grip you choose. If you specifically request the "A" weight head with the same specs, you would most likely achieve our standard D2 swing weight.
When custom ordering can the lofts be adjusted weaker?
Mike W on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You are able to have the lofts adjusted up to 2* weak with a custom order through an authorized Mizuno retailer.
Are the Recoil shafts ascending weight or constant weight?
Lionstar on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Recoil 95 are ascending weight shafts in that they are lighter for the long irons and get heavier in the short irons. You can see the weight progression at this link on UST's web site. http://www.ustmamiya.com/golf-shafts/irons/recoil-95
Which irons would best replace the mp-32?
Bigaldea on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The most comparable irons we currently offer in our MP line to your MP-32's would be the MP-5 and MP-25. The lofts, lie angles, bounce, and offset in these irons are very comparable to the MP-32's and would provide a similar head size and ability to maneuver the golf ball. The offset in the MP-5 specifically is more comparable throughout the set. With that being said, you might want to consider the new JPX 900 Tour iron. It offers a tour Proven Sole Design, Power Frame, Compact Head Size, and Mizuno Tour Level Feel. They provide the ability to perform like an iron such as yours, while adding distance and forgiveness with out sacrificing feel. All of these factors are very attractive to a golfer who is currently playing a older MP model.
what is typical shipping time for a set that is ordered?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Typically the shipping time for a custom order of 900 forged irons is 2-3 days in house to be built, and then shipped out the door.
I am a 9 handicap and continue to play my Ping i3 O-Size irons. I consider them a mid size iron between player and game improvement to use today's terms. I really like the look of the JPX 850 and 900 forged . How does their head size compare to my Pings ? I am looking to take my Pings to the cottage and treat myself to a new set of irons
Peter H on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are lots of differences in the clubs you are playing compared to our New 900 Forged irons and I have provided the most significant differences for you. First, We use Boron in our Forged irons which is a very strong material and it allows our Grain Flow Forging process to deliver soft, solid, consistent feel.
It also allows us to thin the face of our forged irons so drastically improve the rebound effect of the club face. Second, most of the mass in you Ping i3's is distributed toward the center of the club where as our mass is pushed to the extreme corners of the club to deliver unmatched stability through impact. Third, the new design of the 900 Forged has a much more compact head size and thinner top line and sole which is more attractive to better players around your handicap range.
What are the lofts of the jpx-900 irons?

I love these forged irons which have served me well in the past, but with my increasing age and newer technology available, I am in need of replacing these with more forgiving irons (preferably forged), probably with lighter and more flexible graphite shafts. Am I looking in the right category for replacement? Is the JPX-900 forged more of a players iron than say, the JPX-850 forged, or is it the replacement. This is where the Handicap Spectrum system would come in handy for looking in the right ballpark to whittle down which models to consider for a fitting session. (RC in Florida)

BEST ANSWER: Forged irons are typically more attractive to the single digit handicap but that is not always the case. The perception tends to be that forged clubs are only for better players and cast clubs for higher handicappers. We recommend not to get caught up in how the golf club was made, but focus more on how it was designed. If you want to stick with a forged iron, I would recommend the JPX EZ Forged, the heel to toe distance is larger than other Forged models and the weight is distributed towards the bottom and parameters but is less forgiving than the JPX EZ cast. The amount of forgiveness this iron provides I believe it would be a great choice. Outside of a forged iron, The New JPX Hot Metal Irons would be another great choice for you even though it is a cast iron. Overall, the top line and sole of the JPX Hot Metal iron is slightly larger due to the added perimeter weighting throughout the iron to produce more forgiveness on off center hits as compared to the JPX 900 Forged. Due to the fact that the Hot Metals were designed to be more forgiving than both the Forged and Tour versions of the 900 series, there is added offset to complement golfers who prefer this. Also, the Hot Metals have a triple cut sole design for added forgiveness with turf interaction.
Just ordered a set of 900 forged. How long will it be before I receive them?

BEST ANSWER: The turn around time on a custom order of the new 900 series of irons is about 4-5 days. Normally it is 2-3 days but since we have had an overwhelming amount of orders for these irons, production is a bit longer than usual.
