The new JPX Fli-Hi hybrids from Mizuno are designed to replace difficult-to-hit traditional long irons with an easy to launch, forgiving DLR shaped head.
DLR stands for Direct Long Iron Replacement and uses the same specifications as traditional long irons, but with multiple technologies to help all skill levels hit the ball higher.
The JPX Fli-Hi DLR incorporates the same distance technologies as the JPX-800 and JPX-800 HD irons, including a multi-thickness Hot Metal face and MAX COR pocket cavity for increased ball speeds across the face.
Mizuno has also incorporated a wood type hybrid head to provide a large sweet area and lower, deeper centre of gravity. A Speed Bevel Sole Design is employed to create more clubhead speed through the turf, while the club’s face bulge and roll is designed to correct shots on mis-hits.
“The JPX Fli-Hi was designed with the long irons in mind as we strived to create a club with incredible trajectory and forgiveness,” said Dick Lyons, vice president and general manager of Mizuno USA.
“We’ve targeted a specific category of players with the JPX series and believe the JPX Fli-Hi collection will be an ideal replacement for traditional long irons, which are often more challenging to hit,” he added.
The JPX Fli-Hi line also offers the Interchangeable Shaft System that allows players to test and confirm their specific shaft through Mizuno’s Shaft Optimizer technology.
The JPX Fli-Hi line is available in various right and lefthanded lofts and come with Dynalite Gold XP steel or Fujikura Orochi graphite shafts and a Golf Pride M-21 grip.
