Mizuno releases adjustable JPX900 driver


Mizuno, long known for its irons and wedges, is upping its driver game with the new JPX900.

The latest edition to the JPX line is said to be an improvement of the 850 edition, from ball speed to forgiveness to adjustability.

Speaking of adjustability, here is what the JPX900 driver offers:

*Two eight-gram sole weights that can be used in the heel, toe or along the center rail. This interchanging combination allows players to fine-tune launch angle and spin rate and create fade or draw bias.

*The 450cc head has an adjustable hosel of minus-2 to plus-2 degrees of loft for additional launch and spin control.

*An aluminum disc on the sole allows players to alter the face angle at address, up to 4 degrees. It can be set open, neutral or closed.

*The driver loft can be set and adjusted from 7.5 degrees to 11.5 degrees.

The driver comes standard with a Fujikara Evolution II shaft and retails for $500.

JPX900 fairway woods ($300 each) and JPX900 hybrids ($250 each) are also on offer.
