Hi everybody, Donal here at the 2011 PGA Show in Orlando.
We’re at the Mizuno stand with Dave Matthews, an Englishman a long way from home.
Dave, how’s it going? I’m very good thank you.
We’ve got the JPX 800 and the JPX 800 Pro from Mizuno.
Dave tell us a little bit about it. What’s new, what’s the story with the JPX?
JPX is the new version of MX. MX has gone?
MX has gone. MX was a brand that we carried in Europe and
the US, JPX was the Japanese version of that. JPX got a lot of the high end technology that
we did not get access to in the US and Europe. We’ve pulled the 2 brands now so it made sense
to call it JPX. This is the new international JPX.
You can imagine it’s the MX you used to know. Nice golf clubs, good playing profiles, easy
to use. Right up there for a mid-handicap amateur
golfer. But with a big dose of Japanese technology,
this is what you end up with. The 2 fused together.
So what’s the difference between the 2? We’ve got the 800 and the Pro.
You’ve got the 800 which is going to be the best for most golfers.
A little bit more offset, a little bit more weight.
Nice big 360 cavity. Mid handicapper iron?
Probably mid-handicapper, however it’s got what we call balance performance.
We’ve maxed out the forgiveness, we’ve max out the distance with a hot face but what
we didn’t what to do, we didn’t want to give anything up to achieve that.
We didn’t make it very bid, we didn’t put too much offset in there.
So if a better player pick it up and puts it down over the ball it actually looks pretty
good. It feels really nice.
His ego is not going to be upset. Exactly.
A good player could use this. It’s kind of where we feel design is going.
And the Pro version then? The Pro version just tapers every back just
a little bit. It’s a forged golf club so the face isn’t
quite as thin. It feels a little bit higher.
If you’re after a forged golf club, you want the feel of a forged golf club but you want
a little bit more assistance the JPX 800 Pro is the one you want.
You should be the CEO of Mizuno. Alright listen everybody.
Check out the JPX 800 and 800 Pro on Golfbidder. Thanks a million Dave.
No problem, you’re welcome.
