August 29, 2011
JPX-800HD Provides Added Forgiveness and a Higher Trajectory
Norcross, Ga. (August 29, 2011) – Mizuno, a leader in golf technology and innovation, today announced the launch of its super game improvement irons, JPX-800HD™ (High Distance). This new collection will be part of Mizuno’s JPX line of game improvement irons, offering golfers the longest and most forgiving iron on the market.
The JPX-800HD iron set utilizes Mizuno’s distance generating JPX technologies of Hot Metal and MAX COR to deliver the explosive distance that all players crave. The MAX COR pocket construction and Multi-thickness Hot Metal face deliver the highest allowable Coefficient of Restitution (COR) for amazing distance.
Maximum forgiveness and an easy, high launch and ball flight are achieved through an innovative set make up which includes Mizuno’s new Hybrid DLR (Direct Long Iron Replacement), the JPX Fli-Hi, in the #4 and #5. These Hybrid DLR’s are combined with Mizuno’s lowest and deepest COG iron design ever in the #6-GW, to create a set make-up that will help super game improvement players experience success on the golf course.
“The JPX-800 and JPX-800 Pro irons were designed with game improvement in mind and with their success, we decided to create a set of clubs that adhered to the super game improvement category,” said Dick Lyons, VP and General Manager, Mizuno USA, Inc. “The JPX-800HD’s offer the latest in Mizuno’s astounding and revolutionary technologies that are changing the way the game of golf is played. We are extremely excited to send these clubs out to market.”
To better match the miss-hit pattern of super game improvement players, the irons feature strategic low-heel, high-toe weighting to deliver the largest, most effective ‘sweet spot’ area ever. Combined with the Harmonic Impact Technology (HIT), the JPX-800 HDs deliver optimal feel and sound, maximum ball speeds, and superior distance. Even when hit outside of the ‘sweet spot,’ the new line boasts a superior feel and feedback within the super game improvement category.
The JPX-800HDs offer a wide C Grind sole that delivers an incredibly low and deep Center of Gravity (COG), resulting in higher launch and maximum playability. Two toned Nickel Chrome plating with an electroform badge maintains the elegant and classic Mizuno appearance, and a durable finish.
