Mizuno Shock Wave Sole Technology Introduced in New JPX-850 Fairway Woods & Hybrids


JPX-850 Woods and Hybrids Deliver Higher, Longer Shots and Maximize Sweet Area

Norcross, Ga.  – Mizuno, a leader in golf technology and innovation, presents the dynamic, new JPX-850 Fairway Woods and JPX-850 Hybrids, featuring Mizuno’s new Shock Wave Sole™ Technology.

The JPX-850 woods and hybrids promise Mizuno’s most dynamic launch and distance characteristics to date, due to Mizuno’s new Shock Wave Sole™ Technology which provides greater club head flex on impact thus delivering more of the energy from the swing to the ball for increased distance. Moreover, a strategic weight shift of additional mass in the club head to the front and back adjusts the center of gravity (COG), increasing sweet area for easier launch on strikes direct from the turf.

In the Fairway Wood, Mizuno has also incorporated Quick Switch® Technology to enable easy, quick modifications to loft and lie angle. The end result is balanced performance, tremendous distance and ultimate forgiveness.

“For most golfers, it’s very challenging to attack pin locations from long range where shot trajectory needs to be high enough for the ball to land softly or ‘stick’,” said Chuck Couch, Vice President of Product Development, Golf Division, Mizuno USA. “With the JPX-850 woods, golfers are going to hit long range shots with a much higher launch angle, allowing them to go for the pin more aggressively than ever before.”

JPX-850 Fairway Woods
The JPX-850 Fairway Woods utilize a HOT METAL face design with an ultra-thin maraging steel for solid feel and explosive distance. Providing the maximum allowable limit of COR by the USGA, JPX-850 Fairway Woods utilize a Waffle Crown Design™ for greater COR area and increased ball speeds, while incorporating Mizuno’s innovative Mizuno Harmonic Impact Technology (H.I.T.) to deliver a solid feel and powerful sound at impact. Quick Switch® adjustability allows for a 4-degree range of loft adjustment in each.
