The Mizuno JPX-850 Hybrid
Feedback on any product is important and can
be quite valuable in developing improvements
for the future. Mizuno took this idea into account
when they were looking to create their next
hybrid club and asked for feedback from its Tour
staff. Those comments made it to the designers'
desks and contributed to the new JPX-850
The Mizuno JPX-850 Hybrid is the beginning
of a new generation of distance-generating
hybrids. The JPX-850 Hybrid features Mizuno's
Shock Wave sole, an accordion-like design
allowing the entire club head to contract and
expand upon impact. The result is more energy
from the swing to the ball equalling increased
distance. The clubhead's lower center of gravity
should make it easier for players to launch
directly from the turf.
The JPX-850 Hybrid is available in four
different lofts including; 16, 19, 22, and 25
degrees. The hybrid is available in a 2, 3, 4 and
5 club. The face of the club is square on all of
the clubs with the exception of the 2 club which
is slightly open. Standard and custom shafts are
available as well as a variety of custom grips.
Now available, the hybrids are priced at
$199.99 per club.
