Late last week, Mizuno announced it’s new line of clubs from driver to wedges called the EZ series, the biggest thing that comes with this announcement is Mizuno making it’s first splash into the adjust-ability market with it’s drivers, fairway woods and hybrids. The “Quick Switch” adjust-ability design is designed to offer the Average Golfer, a simple 8 setting design to find the perfect setting for themselves, not a pro golfer. Mizuno has also been away from the fairway wood market and from initial testing, a Mizuno employee said they didn’t just jump back into the fairway wood market they came with a cannon designed as a fairway wood.
The irons in this line are forged EZ series irons, that come in a black nickel plating and look phenomenal. I for one cannot wait to see these in person, what are your thoughts?
Below is the press release from Mizuno’s website.
“Mizuno has announced the evolution of its technology driven JPX line with the new JPX EZ Series. The JPX EZ series features two new irons, a QuickSwitch driver, fairway and hybrid – in a concept designed to reward aggressive shotmaking.
At the front of the line is the much awaited JPX EZ Forged iron in stunning Black Nickel plating. Mizuno believes the EZ Forged is the pinnacle of their Grain Flow Forged technology project – offering a completely new level of distance and dispersion within a soft feeling iron
“Mizuno has never made equipment like this. From the Quick Switch driver to the explosive EZ irons – everything epitomises the EZ philosophy,” Chuck Couch – Director of Product.
“It’s not a question of ability – just a different approaches to the game. We found there are two ways to real golfing fulfilment. You can join the ‘Shotmakers and Artists’ who craft their way round the course with more precise instruments like the MP-4 and MP-54. Then there are the ‘Risk Takers’ – players with the ability to shake off negative thoughts and take on every shot. We want to convince more golfers to shake off their fears and become ‘Risk Takers’. That’s what JPX EZ philosophy is all about.”
The JPX EZ also marks Mizuno’s return to driver adjustability – though Couch confirms it’s been done the EZ way. “This isn’t the standard adjustability where the majority of settings are only usable by professionals and tour players. It’s about having 8 settings that are easy to find and useable by all of us.”
Couch also believes that the JPX EZ woods are the biggest surprise in the new line. “In testing these woods have caught better players completely blindsided. You expect a pleasant high flying ‘safety first’ type result – what you get is a set of cannons. Mizuno is back in the wood business in a big way.”
The JPX EZ irons are available from Sep 1 2014. JPX EZ Series woods will follow in Europe during Feb 2014.
