Mizuno fans will tell you that once you experience a Mizuno iron, you will probably never change brands. Mizuno has a very specific feel to it, and once you have played with it, it’s hard to adjust to another brand. Although Mizuno has been known for their impressive clubs for the lower handicap players, they have started putting together some options that work for mid to high handicap golfers. The latest series of irons from Mizuno is the JPX 921. This is a complete series of irons with choices for all handicaps. Let’s break down the Mizuno JPX 921 Irons and see which ones will make the most sense for your game.
The Mizuno JPX 921 Hot Metal and Hot Metal Pro are built for mid and high handicap players. Both of these irons will feature a bit more forgiveness than other Mizuno irons, although they still do a great job of maintaining that feel that sets Mizuno apart.
The Hot Metal and Hot Metal Pro are one-piece cast irons made with 4140 Chromoly steel. You will find that you can work the ball a bit more with the Hot Metal Pro and get some extra control with ball flight and direction. The Hot Metal is more for helping to increase launch and straighten out ball flight.
The JPX 921 Forged tends to be one of the most popular in the Mizuno lineup. With this iron, you will get a tremendous amount of distance but still, get that clean-looking Mizuno club head. This is a forged club, so there is very little vibration or movement at impact.
For the golfers who are good ball strikers but not ready for more of a blade-style iron, the JPX 921 forged is an intelligent choice. The forgiveness on this iron is just a little less of the Mizuno 921 Hot Metal Pro.
The Mizuno JPX 921 Tour is considered to be a player’s iron. This club was designed for those that have a five or lower handicap. The Mizuno JPX 921 Tour construction is forged, and it comes from a piece of 1025E HD mild carbon steel.
The lofts on the JPX 921 Tour will be much more traditional, meaning that you will need to ensure you are capable of creating distance in your game before making this switch. Overall you will love the top-down look of this clean-looking player’s Mizuno iron.
