If you have been looking for a new club to add to your bag this season, here is a look at the Mizuno JPX 850 woods and hybrids. Standing out for both the wood and hybrid is sporting a new paint job and a redesign of the sole that is bursting with technology allowing for increased ball speed and longer distance!
So lets get this out of the way first, Bombtech makes high quality, great performing products. They emphasize this point on their website, even to the point of using a high quality paint so the club looks good for an extended point of time. These are not cheapy clones or infomercial clubs. Bombtech enlisted the help of Engineering students from the University of Vermont to create a shape the didn't infringe on any other patents but cut through the air and transferred as large amount of energy to the ball as possible. They result is a club of high quality materials and manufacturing processes just like the " Big Boys".
For 2013 Nike had a radical idea, Cavity backs. They thought how essential a cavity back is for performance in irons and that's when that Nike light bulb went off. Who is crazy enough to put a cavity back in fairways, hybrids, and even drivers? The same people with the R&D that can make it work. Nike is a melting pot for ideas and innovations, for them to not do something like this would be .... well a letdown. They are Nike, you expect innovation and game changing technology.
Callaway got it right with this line of Fairway Woods! We were fortunate to get a firsthand look and test of the RAZR X Black 3 and 5 woods. The 3 Wood has 15* of loft with a lie of 55*. The 5 Wood has 19* of loft with a lie of 56*. Callaway is one of few manufacturers that also offer the RAZR X Black fairway woods in a 4 wood, 7 wood, and a 24* 9 wood.
