The company calls JPX-825 its longest, most forgiving iron ever. It features an ultrathin “hot metal” face (COR of 0.822 is similar to woods) and a thin-walled sole that contributes to additional face flex and faster ball speeds. A wider, deeper “pocket cavity” shifts more mass toward the rear, heel and toe to boost forgiveness (distance and direction) on mis-hits. Overall, the club has a slightly longer blade length than the JPX-800, a lower center of gravity and a 15 percent larger “sweet area.”
