The Mizuno JPX 919 lineup is built around the Stability Frame. A cavity back design where the heel is opened to optimize weight in the toe and perimeter, the JPX 919 irons have more forgiveness than the MP-18 irons.
While the JPX line is traditionally a Game Improvement class of club, there is a JPX 919 option for all players.
The Tour version, played by 3-time major winner Brooks Koepka, is for strong, low handicap players looking for a tighter dispersion from a true players iron. Minimal offset and a Tour-inspired top line put these irons at the top of the class.
The Tour heads are Grain Flow Forged HD from a single billet of 1025 Pure Select mild carbon steel.
I decided to spend the on-course time focusing on the Tour and Forged heads. These are the two sets that fit my game best. The shafts on the JPX 919 Hot Metal irons were way too light for me, so I decided the best option was to hit a few shots at the range with the Hot Metal set to get an understanding of how they felt and look.
The first round I played, I packed both the Tour and the Forged heads into my bag and played 9 holes with each. On the front nine I played the Tour version and on the back nine I played the Forged version.
Right off the bat, I really like the way the Tour irons felt in my hands, it has a very balanced feeling to it and a true, thin top line. I felt a little more weight lower in the clubface when the club hung above the ground which gave these irons a solid feel.
Compared to the JPX 900 irons, I like the styling and design of the JPX 919 more. The low-glare Pearl Satin finish is pleasing to look at, the lines are clean, and the open heel construction has a cool and confidence building look to it.
Jumping on an earlier tee time, it took me a few holes to get completely into my groove with the JPX 919 Tour irons, but once I did I absolutely love them. The turf interaction is incredible! Mizuno has done a really good job beveling the edges to create a superior turf interaction.
The major thing I noticed was how straight the JPX 919 Tour irons ball flight was for a Players iron, there was very little movement left or right. I also found that even if I missed the center a little bit, the ball still jumped off the face with clean contact and carried virtually the same distance as a perfectly struck shot.
On the back nine, I played with the JPX 919 Forged heads and felt comfortable with these irons right away. They performed wonderfully, and while the shafts I had were a little too light for me and had a few shots balloon, once again I really liked the turf interaction. The ball came off the clubface hot and flew straight......More
