Mizuno JPX-800 Hybrid

Mizuno JPX-800 Hybrid

From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: 3 (19°), 4 (22°) with Mizuno Exsar HS5 graphite shaft

Key Technologies: JPX-800 features a stainless steel faceplate that's welded to a stainless steel body. The idea is to broaden the high-COR area so shots across more of the face get max distance. Each hybrid has a specific head size, shape and shaft length to fill distance gaps between irons and fairway woods.

OUR TESTERS SAY: The club's consistency and stability are among its greatest assets; bona fide long-iron replacements that get the ball up quickly.

PLAYABILITY: Shots from rough come out easily, as though your ball is in the fairway; ball gets airborne without hard work.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Forgiveness and accuracy trump many of its competitors; deadly accurate when you hit it pure; higher handicappers find that it takes a really bad swing to mess up a shot.
DISTANCE: Respectable length, like many others, on well-struck balls; distance isn't too compromised on less-than-perfect shots.
FEEL: Heavyish clubhead stays stable through impact and squares up with ease.
LOOK: Metallic wings on crown (heel and toe) suggest perimeter weighting and confidence-inspiring stability.

Some testers would like a little more feedback on all types of shots; two-tone paint scheme with cutout cheapens the look for some.
