Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. Today we’re going to share with you the details on the new JPX 850 driver by Mizuno. This is the next generation of tracks that moves away from simply allowing golfer to adjust the fade or draw bias of heir club, but this is the first rendition that aligns with the swing allowing a golfer to control trajectory and ball spin. Here’s what Mizuno has to say about this driver:
A massive playing profile with a low and deep extended weighting system launches the ball into an optimized, low spinning orbit – from whichever QuickSwitch setting you choose.
The piercing blue JPX-850 uses twin 8-gram weights which can be located on either the central sliding rail, or two lateral slots. With 10 unique settings, players of all head speeds can dial in their perfect launch and spin.
In combination with Mizuno’s Quick Switch shaft release system, the JPX-850 also offers lofts from 7.5 to 11.5 within one head for the ultimate in adjustability.
The JPX-850 head is a compact, powerful 440cc Titanium driver that utilizes a Rebound Crown to maximize ball speeds for unmatched distance.
Some Reviews and Feedback
Mizuno made a tremendous club with the 850 driver. It is cutting edge in terms of modification, a path few though Mizuno would walk down due to their traditional brand. Many players reported solid boring ball flight and trajectory with great roll once the ball hits the ground. The club also got round the web review for its looks – this club is styling, which is sometimes tough to do in this market. In terms of playability, this club is also strong offering weight ports, launch angle & spin slider and Mizuno’s Fast Track shaft tech – offering 10 unique flight settings – really anything and everything golfers would need. In terms of feel, results were mixed, many testers felt the driver performed well on pure shots and even off-center hits, but finding the sweet spot was often an issue for golfers. For the average golfer (which this driver certainly isn’t for) there may be too many options to choose from. Price point is also a little high at $399 USD or $450 in CAD.
