Playability

Adjustable loft and sliding weight make it simple to dial in to fit a player's needs; fine off the tee but better from the fairway and trouble lies; moderately workable sticks.

Distance

Average off the tee; players pick up a few yards on second shots because it's easy to hit from rough and hardpan; acceptable output on misses; testers get more length when it's adjusted to hit lower-trajectory shots.

Cons

The color mix isn't for everyone; some players want more feedback and a more distinct difference between center shots and mishits; this fairway wood produces distance that's less than exceptional.

Bottom Line

Whether you're tweaking swing tendencies or combating on-course conditions, the loft adjustability and movable sole weight give you an advantage. And the JPX 900 comes wrapped in a package that catches the eye.
