The JPX head is a piercing blue/black compact 440cc titanium head that frames the ball well and sits very square to my eye. To accompany it’s hot looks, the head produced a very solid feel and sound with excellent feedback to my hands. With the option to spread the weights apart to help stabilize the head, I saw more forgiveness as my miss hits never seemed to waver much off line. I tend to have issues moving the ball left or right with smaller heads, but was able to pull off slight movements on command. The super smooth Fujikura Speeder 6.3 VC not only topped off it’s looks, but added a premium to the whole package.
Who’s it for?
Anyone that loves Blue! Colorway aside, I think the ability to change CG locations and or stabilize the head by moving the sole weights would suggest that many types of games would work well with this driver but I would narrow it down to those that can produce 90+ club head speeds with average to above average skills would benefit the most.
Final Take – Gom’s Pick
The Mizuno JPX 850 is easily my favorite of the smaller footprint heads out there as I loved the simplicity of the Fast Star System and the options it provided. The stunning high launch low spin drives that I witnessed had me taking a step back and looking over at the the 1st tee after just a handful of balls.
