The JPX919 Tour iron is - as the name actually suggests - the most frequently played iron on the Tour. This is not just because of the name, but because this club is made for the demands of the tour for several reasons. Brooks Koepka is player without contract and can therefore choose his equipment freely according to performance. He chose the JPX919 Tour from Mizuno.
This iron is forged from a single piece of soft carbon steel and what makes this head stand out is the Stability Frame. This is a frame that gives more weight to the outer areas of the clubface. This leads to a higher forgiveness and an increased MOI. The area of the heel is left out because no additional weight is needed at this point.
Of course, the JPX919 Tour is a more sporty iron that feels exactly the same in the response position. The topline is relatively thin and the hitting surface is rather small. The JPX919 Tour also has more offset than the Mizuno MP-20 Muscle Back. Among other things, this makes the launch easier.
As finish Mizuno uses the so-called "Pearl Brush Finish" which has the ability to absorb light and not dazzle the player in sunlight. This means that the JPX919 Tour doesn't look as shiny as the MP-20, but rather a bit "rougher" or brushed.
The JPX919 Tour comes with a variety of steel shafts from leading manufacturers such as Dynamic Gold, Project X, Nippon and KBS. In addition, various grips and other adjustments such as longer/shorter shafts, different lie or loft are doable. It is also important to know that the JPX919 Tour is forged from soft steel and lie and loft can therefore be adjusted by us at any time. This service is free for life.
Standard set from 5-PW.

Mizuno is one of the very few manufacturers who are able to produce in large quantities and still maintain a very high quality standard. Mizuno is best known for its irons and the especially soft feeling at the moment of impact. This is made possible by the innovative manufacturing process and the "soft steel" used. The manufacturing process also allows the production of large quantities without any loss of quality. All club heads are forged in Hiroshima and exported to Europe. There they are assembled according to the customer's wishes.
This makes it possible to produce an almost infinite combination of clubs and to meet the exact needs of the player. Mizuno offers a wide range of shafts and grips which can also be selected at no extra charge. There is only one variant that can be called "standard". This configuration is already produced in larger quantities and is therefore cheaper. We at ExactGolf can also make small adjustments such as a different grip, lie or loft ourselves. This makes us the only Mizuno dealer that not only offers all possible configurations but also makes various adjustments ourselves - at no extra cost.
The manufacturing processes at Mizuno are very advanced and extremely accurate. It takes a few months to train a new employee and to have the necessary skills to build the clubs. Mizuno still manages to meet the demand in a relatively short time of 14 days.
There is only one small limitation that Mizuno has to take into account and which we as clubmakers do not have: Mizuno cannot properly adjust the swing weight on shafts that are over 1/2 inch longer or shorter. If you choose a club with +1 inch it would have to be drilled out so that the swing weight is not too heavy. We will do these adjustments with Miura irons, Mizuno unfortunately does not. So you should be aware that much larger or shorter Mizuno irons will most likely not have the correct swing weight. If this is relevant to you it would be best to contact us to discuss the issue.
