Mizuno has introduced its new JPX Fli-Hi as a replacement for long irons.
Mizuno’s Fli-Hi concept has been around in both iron and hybrid form for a decade now. Its latest offering, the JPX Fli-Hi is designed to launch the ball high and land it soft from longer range and fit seamlessly in, with the models from four to seven designed to correspond directly to the irons they have been created to replace.
High launch and playability are the goals, with the JPX Fli-Hi’s distinctive face-forward profile letting the leading edge glide through contact for a consistent, high ball flight.
The Wave Soleplate allows the front portion of the sole to flex for increased ball speeds, especially on mis-hits low in the face, while the Drop Down Crown design not only assists with visual alignment at address, but also allows more weight to be shifted low in the clubhead to further assist with a higher launch.
The JPX Fli-Hi will be available at retail in February 2019 in four loft options numbered four to seven. Mizuno has incorporated a Flow COG Design into the clubheads, with weight shifting slightly according to loft. In the longer four and five models, while the six and sevem models are slightly more front-weighted to moderate launch appropriately.
The JPX Fi-Hi will be available in four right-hand only lofts – #4/19 degrees, #5/22 degrees, #6/25 degrees and #7/28 degrees.
