Just got my new Mizuno JPX-EZ Driver!

6 posts in this topic

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.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
