PREVIEW: Mizuno Golf JPX EZ driver, fairway woods and hybrids

Mizuno Golf didn't name their new driver and fairway woods with EZ -- you know, for easy -- in the moniker for nothing. The company aimed to build woods that were adjustable, but in a simple, easy-to-understand way.

The head of the JPX EZ driver has a 10-gram weight that can be positioned in one of three spots -- one for a draw bias, one for a fade bias and another, located in the middle of the sole, to keep things neutral. There are also eight settings to adjust loft and lie, ranging in 1-degree increments from 8.5-12.5 degrees and three draw-biased options from 9.5-11.5 degrees.

The JPX-EZ driver is also physically big, taking up as much of the USGA-directed, literal design box as possible. That creates a high MOI clubhead that, the company says, is among the highest in the marketplace. The standard Fujikura SIX XLR8 shaft has a high-balance point which allowed engineers to move 4 grams around on the head.

The fairway woods and hybrids have a larger profile compared to the JPX-850 models and have an HT 1770 high-strength steel face insert.

The woods, which come in 3-, 5- and 7-wood models, sport what is referred to as a wave-structured sole which extends around the heel and toe with the aim of pushing the center of gravity lower, meaning more forgiveness and better launch conditions on the typical low-on-the-face miss. Each has an eight-way adjustable hosel to change loft up and down by 2 degrees.

The hybrid line will offer four loft options, including a 2-hybrid.

The JPX-EZ driver ($400), fairway woods ($250) and hybrids ($200) are scheduled to be in stores in November.
