Mizuno again challenges the other club manufacturers with the introduction of the new 932 family offering something for just about every level of golfer from beginner to those on the Tour.

As usual they offer a bewildering selection of shafts, 50 in all, and combined with the multiple models from the JPX923 Hot Metal HL (high loft) the combinations scream for a professional fitting. Each of the models uses a variation of Mizuno’s V-Chassis design to make them more forgiving and more controllable. Compared with the JPX921 line of two years ago prices are up modestly but well within the market price range for premium irons.

Chris Voshall – Product Director said of the JPX923’s, “Overall – each model got even more specifically designed to do exactly what it’s supposed to do. The most extreme models in the line – Tour and Hot Metal HL have pushed further to those extremes. The new Tour is by far the most ‘Mizuno Pro’ looking JPX iron we’ve ever released. The Hot Metal HL takes us into new territory of forgiveness – but within an acceptable Mizuno template.”

“Every model revolves around the new V-Chassis – which allowed us to dial in a very typical Mizuno vibration pattern, without the need to thicken the toplines. So they’re all very nicely in proportion for their size.”

“There are so many different kinds of players looking for increased ball speed from their irons, we needed more options for them at a fitting level. The custom studios use shaft selection incredibly well to help with launch angle or slower swing speeds, but the JPX923 Hot Metal HL gives them a great new tool to work with.”
