First thing you will notice about the Mizuno JPX825 driver is its shape at address. With sharper edges and a more triangular appearance it certainly is a stand out look that may not appeal to all. However, visually it does work as the V in the grooves on the face mirrors the V-styling of the head, in what is a very classy looking driver.
Mizuno say the the heavier weight that they have put in the sole increases forgiveness and makes this a driver for going straight, rather than one you shape.
Compared to the JPX800 it certainly looks much better and with more weight further back it does seem slightly easier to hit. However for us it missed a little of the wow factor that is present in the JPX825 fairway and hybrid.
The driver seemed relatively hard work to get going, possibly because the feel and sound were a little muted, which is a shame as the JPX825 driver is a big improvement on the previous model despite this.
JPX825 driver Features:
A 5 piece Titanium construction is the engine of the JPX825 - with specific variations of Titanium used for each part of the clubhead.
A Forged 6-4 Ti face with 2 layer thickness design is Mizuno's hottest yet - with a rounded top edge designed to keep the face 'alive' across an even larger area. Mizuno JPX825 Driver Ladies Model Ladies Model The JPX825's threatening club-head tapers back from the face, hugging low to the ground - giving a clue to the relentlessly straight soaring drives its Hot Metal face wants to produce.
The crown piece is thinned through a chemical etching process, reducing it to just 0.5mm.
This allows a heavy weight to be fixed deep within the JPX825 clubhead to launch the ball high, with low backspin - to go deep into the fairways.
Finally the black IP face and high gloss black crown stare down the ball and tell everyone that you're not about to go easy
