Design Details

With the JPX 900 Hot Metal Iron, we set out to Engineer the Longest, Hottest - broad appeal iron we've ever made. By utilizing new materials and new methods of construction, we were able to produce an iron with an unmatched level of ball speed.

Tech Specs

CHROMOLY 4140M:

  • 15% stronger material than 17-4 pH Stainless steel provides the added strength for our hottest face ever

  • Ultra-thin face combined with our re-engineered CORTECH multi-thickness design provides superior initial ball speed for maximum distance

POWER FRAME:

  • More mass is pushed to the extreme perimeter of the club head for industry leading MOI

  • POWER FRAME geometry is a result of our Harmonic Impact Technology.The rigid POWER FRAME provided an extremely solid impact sound while allowing maximum face rebound.

UNITIZED CUP FACE GEOMETRY:

  • Through complex development techniques we were able to achieve Unitized Cup Face Geometry, delivering a massive COR AREA.

  • Unitized Cup Face Geometry also provides more discretionary weight than welded cup face designs, thus allowing for a deeper CG and greater forgiveness

These clubs are awesome
Clubs are very forgiving as well as soft. Make sure you get the correct shaft for your swing speed. Tried all different shafts I swing around 83-86 and fit my 7160 using the modus 105 shaft in reg. They have a nice click to them and off center hits travel straight but loose distance. Al and all the best Mizuno clubs I have played. Try them you won't be sorry the best for the money can buy.

Unreal Distance
I was in a golf store to purchase a new set of AP2's when the employee doing the fitting handed me the JPX-900 informing me that they just came in that day and to hit a few. I could not believe how much further these irons go and yet they are so forgiving. I abandoned the AP2 fitting and ordered a set of JPX-900s! These irons added 10-15 yards of distance to each iron from my previous set (AP2 712). I would highly recommend these irons if you struggle with distance or simply want to crush the ball. Only con with these irons is workability, it is very difficult to not hit them straight... (depending on your skill level that may not be a con)

Amazing
Was custom fit for these irons and I absolutely love them. I had the JPX 850's that I loved because they were massively forgiving, what I didn't love about those irons though was the feel at impact was a little harsh and they maybe weren't the cleanest looking irons with the blue badging and dual relief sole. The JPX 900 Hot Metal have addressed these "flaws" and have given me not only huge forgiveness, but they look amazing and the feel/sound at impact is venturing into forged club territory. A great solid/soft clip at impact and the ball jumps off the face launching high, carrying and landing soft. They've even managed to keep the spin up despite the high COR and cup face design. The only "con" I can think of is because of the cup face design and hot face I found short pitches and chips with the pitching wedge were difficult to control the distance. Luckily the clever engineers at Mizuno provide a gap wedge (sand and lob as well) that use entirely different materials and design. This is a very well designed and thought out and set of irons. Very rare to get this level of feel from a set of game improvement irons. Make sure you get custom fit, Mizuno offers no upcharge on shafts and grips, you will not be disappointed!

Awesome performance irons plus workablility: Very forgiving & fast speed
Fitted with KBS Tour 90R shaft (4 - GW) on 9/4 and got the set on 9/19. Previously played MP, JPX 800 and JPX 850 irons. Just loved the feel of Mizuno irons and the consistency on all shots. Have to say the JPX 900 Hot Metal irons are very hot in feel, speed and ease-to-hit category. Got about 5-10 yard gain with the JPX 900 Hot Metal compared to my JPX 850 irons. Especially, GW - 8 iron seems to gain the most. Very consistent and accurate with decent workability to draw and fade but mostly the shots fly straight, very predictable. I hit more greens without fearing left pull for the first time. Have to admit that I love the JPX 850 performance on turf interaction much better and compact head shape just a bit more.

How does the sole of the JPX-900 Hot metal compare to the JPX EZ from last year? Is the 900 still a little V shaped?
Pat . on Dec 21, 2016
what handicap range would the Jpx 900 hot metal irons work best for ?
classifierbrad on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The New JPX Hot Metal Irons have two different stock shaft offerings available.
The Graphite option is the Project X LZ 4.5 Regular Flex and it is 70 grams with a 3.5 torque. The swing weight with those shafts would be D0 4-9 Iron, and the PW would fall around D1. We do not have a handicap range for these irons but typically they are most attractive to the 10-20 handicap range.
Specs torque and weight for graphite project x lz 4.5 and 5.0 graphite shafts?
Normie on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you need assistance on finding out our custom shaft offerings, please contact our consumer division at the below number. We are currently working on getting the custom shaft and grip options on the web site.

I have played Mizuno irons for the last 15 years. Love the looks and read most of the q&a but with the understanding that the 900 hot metals launch higher my question would be how hard will it be when you are required to hit a lower shot? Is it very much harder to hit a knock down? I realize a lot of this relies on the golfer but that shot is needed sometime. How workable are these clubs?
Gary K on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The JPX 900 Hot Metals are still workable for a cast iron. It is very dependent on the player and their swing but you should be able to control the flight of the ball when necessary.
Is there a different length between steel and graphite shafts in the 900 hot metal irons?
Tony W on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length of shafts are based on what you are custom fit for. Stock length wise there is no difference between graphite and steel.
What iron should a single digit handicap play?
Ed M on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The NEW JPX 900 Tour iron is perfect for single digit handicaps who want a little more forgiveness than a traditional muscle back iron but our MP-5 irons are great for single digit handicaps who love that classic look and enhanced ability to maneuver the golf ball.
What iron do you recommend for a 17 handicap?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The JPX 900 Hot Metal iron is a great iron for the 17 handicap, with that being said, the JPX EZ might be a better option seeing as it is more forgiving but both irons would fit your specifications great.
I currently have the JPX EZ will the new hot metal feel close to the same but hit the all higher?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All of the clubs are going to hit a bit different. I would suggest going to an authorized retailer and getting fit. This fitting will give you the best feel for which iron and shaft is best for your game. Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-966-1211 if you have any further questions.
I'm sold on the JPX 900 Hot Metals. However, I have an extremely high ball flight and high spin. What shaft should I put into the 900 Hot Metals or maybe a recommendation or two? Thanks
A shopper on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We prefer not to recommend shafts because it is very dependent on each individual's unique swing makeup. We highly recommend going through our Performance Fitting System at one of our authorized retailers to be fitted for the perfect shaft for your swing. Here is a link to our store locator so you can find the retailer nearest to you, just be sure to check "Performance Fitting System" before doing your search. http://www.mizunousa.com/Golf/Store-Locator

JPX 900 HM 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX 900 HM 4-GW STEEL RH
JPX-EZ SW XP95 STEEL RH
JPX-EZ SW XP95 STEEL RH
BEST ANSWER: The JPX EZ is made for maximum forgiveness while the JPX 900 Hot Metal is made for maximum distance and ball speed. So if you are looking for forgiveness we recommend the JPX EZ.
Are the hotmetal irons designed to be draw biased to correct slices? Or is it setup to be neutral with respect to draws and fades?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The JPX-900 Hot Metal Irons have more offset than our JPX Forged and Tour series, but it is still a minimal amount compared to other game improvement clubs on the market. The main purpose of an offset club head is to help players who tend to slice. One way in which the offset helps to limit or cure the slice is by moving the club head’s center of gravity farther from the shaft. The farther the center of gravity is from the shaft, the better chance you have of squaring the club face.
Why is the gap wedge different than the rest of the clubs? It looks like it is a forged wedge.
Robin M on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our JPX Hot Metal GW, SW and LW are all made with X30 soft stainless steel for softer touch into the green. They also have a specialized head shape for more use out various lies such as rough, bunkers and tight fairways. Lastly, our Quad Cut Grooves and face milling are used for increased spin and touch around the greens.

What is the Swing weight for JPX 900 hot metal irons?
Bird Hunter on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you were to buy the JPX 900 Hot Metal irons the swing weight would be D2 from the 4iron-9iron and the PW & GW would be D3. With that being said, if you were to order this iron set through a retailer for a custom order, depending on your personal specifications like adding length, extra wraps of tape, over sized grips, etc. we are able to achieve swing weights as close to your specifications as possible.
Are the JPX 900 Hot Metal clubs forged?
Chris G on Oct 18, 2016

I hit a demo 900 hot metal 6 iron with the Orochi graphite shaft. I don't believe this is the stock shaft however. Is the Project X graphite stock shaft available with a senior shaft? Which shaft is better for a senior flex in this club?
Tracy N on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Here are the graphite shaft offerings for the new JPX 900 Hot Metal irons. The Orochi graphite shaft is being discontinued and we only have a limited amount of that shaft available. With that being said, we are the first company to introduce the Project X LZ with “Loading Zone” technology which is a flexible mid-section with proprietary torsional bands. These two technologies work together to produce maximum shaft loading without the loss of stability. The result is maximized ball speed with total control. So in short, with the new technology in the 900 Hot Metals combined with the Project X LZ shaft, you will see a large improvement in distance and overall forgiveness. Here are the options for this shaft.

Project X LZ=Regular Flex- 70 grams
Senior Flex- 60 grams
Ladies Flex- 50 grams

I play jpx 825's with the Orochi shaft. What would be the benefits to moving up to 900 hot metals with the project x Lz shaft?
Bob F on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We use the chromoly material to make the JPX Hot Metal irons which is the same material they use to make high performance bicycles, and because of this we were able to provide a thinner face on the club which creates a greater rebound effect for added distance. We also introduced the "Power Frame" technology around the parameters of the Hot Metals for added forgiveness and stability on off center hits. With the power frame design more mass pushed to the extreme corners to deliver unmatched stability. We are the first company to introduce the Project X LZ with “Loading Zone” technology which is a flexible mid-section with proprietary torsional bands. These two technologies work together to produce maximum shaft loading without the loss of stability. The result is maximized ball speed with total control. So in short, with the new technology in the 900 Hot Metals combined with the Project X LZ shaft, you will see a large improvement in distance and overall forgiveness.
Are you able to combo set the JPX 900 Forged and Hot Metal?
A shopper on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you would be able to buy a combo set of the Forged and Hot Metals through a custom order with any of our authorized Mizuno retailers.
have mizuno 825 irons with a10 handicap which iron is the next step of inprovement ?
mark g on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend either the JPX 900 Hot Metals or the JPX 900 Forged and I have provided info on both of these for your convenience The New JPX Hot Metal Irons have two different stock shaft offerings available.
The Graphite option is the Project X LZ 4.5 Regular Flex and it is 70 grams with a 3.5 torque. The swing weight with those shafts would be D0 4-9 Iron, and the PW would fall around D1. 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. Either one of these irons would be a great fit for you and the handicap you fall under. You would be able to custom order these irons with any shaft or grip of your choice in our line up through any authorized retailer at no additional upcharge.
I'm a 12/13 Handicap currently playing the JPX850's. What do you recommend for the next step up
in irons?
Davud H on Sep 21, 2016
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. 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, either one of these irons would be a great choice for you but since you are used to hitting a cast iron I would recommend the JPX 900 Hot Metals.
Just need to know whats difference in JPX900 and JPX EZ forged,black finish,As i am looking for new set of Irons and tried JPX EZ,black finish,loved the feel of it,very soft feel,and great distance,so i am trying to see the difference in ur newer JPX900 an EZ???,Thank u,9 handicap
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Forged irons like the JPX EZ 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. With the JPX EZ Forged iron, the heel to toe distance is larger than other Forged and cast models and the weight is distributed towards the bottom so it is designed for a higher ball flight and tends to be more forgiving than the JPX 900 Hot Metal due to it's larger sweet spot. Also, if you are looking for a softer feel, the JPX EZ Forged iron might be a better choice. Overall, for your handicap, and the amount of forgiveness this iron provides I believe it would be a great choice.
How does the top line and offset of the hot metal compare withe the 900 forged. And are lofts similar to the 900 forged?

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 particular feature.
I am looking to order a mixed set of JPX Hot metal and Forged . My question is distance gaping. I think the set will be Hot in longer irons like 4,5,6, and then Forged in the 7,8.9,P,G for more control and spin. Will i have an issue with a distance Gap from 7-6 changing from One to the other . Loft and also the "extra" distance in the Hot metal ? I have JPX850 cast now. great clubs great distance . I just would like to work the ball a little more and The feel and spin that come for Forged club. I am a 12hc and coming down.
