Just got my new Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I went to a demo day last weekend and I was testing drivers and 60 degree wedges. I hit the Sliders, Coverts and XHots but I fell in love with the Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver with the low spin face and low spin shaft. I was fitted and told I needed to hit an 8 to 9 degree loft with a low spin shaft and maybe even use a low spin ball.  Even though I have great distance they said my spin rate was too high and it caused me to not get max distance. So they recommended the face angle, lie and shaft and I ordered it. It came in today and I picked it up a little earlier.

 

I can't wait to get on the range today and go play a round with it.  This is the first adjustable driver I have ever owned and the face is set to neutral right now I think.  I have to try to figure out how to close the face like it is on my old Nike Sumo driver.

Congrats!!! How did it sound when getting fitted? Let us know also after using it. I've read that is very loud when hitting balls.

Loud? No way man!  There is a crisp sort of sound but not loud at all.  As a matter of fact my Nike Sumo driver is 3 times as loud as this Mizuno driver is. I'm used to hearing a loud PINK!!!!  from the Nike.  At first the Mizuno sounded like I wasn't making good contact but I quickly figured out that it just wasn't near as loud as my old driver.

It's a pretty good looking club. I've seen it a couple of times, but haven't had a chance to hit it yet. Once you get a few rounds under your belt, be sure to write up a review in the Equipment section of the site!

 

A few stock photos for those who haven't seen it.

Well, I've played several rounds with this driver and was really beginning to fall in love with it.  That is until an unfortunate incident today.  My wife, son and I were out enjoying the beautiful spring day out on a local golf course. I was playing a casual round myself while my son and wife walked the course to get some exercise.  I teed it up on hole #6 a par 5.  I had been hitting the driver great today with a slight draw and decided I wanted to really go after this one.  So I lined up the shot, slightly closed the face, got some good width on my swing and pow!  Crushed it.  I was impressed until I looked at my driver and saw the shaft had snapped!  I mean, I do have a high swing speed but I don't think I generate the kind of torque to snap a shaft. 

 

Now what do I do?  Will the shaft be replaced by Mizuno or Edwin Watts Golf? I ordered it after trying several and getting fitted at a demo day.
