Our test team casts its eye over the brand's latest model in its Mizuno JPX850 driver review

Product Overview

Mizuno JPX850 driver

Pros:

  • We have seen so many drivers since Mizuno first offered Fast Track sliding weight adjustability in 2007’s MP-600 model. This new adjustable offering is completely different, and brings Mizuno drivers into the present and beyond.
  • The piercing blue crown on the new JPX850 looks beautiful behind the ball, and the performance it helps to provide is equally impressive. The 440cc head didn’t result in a drop-off in forgiveness for us, as might have been expected, and the adjustability made a particularly big difference to the amount of spin on offer.
  • An expert custom-fitter will be able to make alterations that noticeably change the performance of the driver to help find the ideal set-up for a wide range of golfers. This is undoubtedly the best driver offering from Mizuno in a very long time.

Cons:

  • Even though the smaller head didn’t affect performance, some will still prefer the look of a larger head behind the ball. The adjustability on offer is a little more complicated than others on the market, while the blue crown will divide opinion.
