Here at Eye on Golf we care not just about the people who play the game but also the equipment they use. I recently got a chance to test out a new product, here's what I think about it.

What product were you testing?

The Mizuno JPX EZ irons -- a set of irons Mizuno says has "the largest 'sweet spot' ever."

What's your favorite thing about the clubs?

I'm about a 20 handicap so I feel out of control if I'm hitting blades or something that isn't geared for a pretty standard amateur.

That being said I feel in total control when I hit these. Even my misses aren't bad misses -- they're the kind that still go the distance you need.

The clubs are a bit on the lighter side -- but I'm also a bit on the heavy side so if you're a normal-sized person they'll be weighted perfectly for you.

Either way, the weight doesn't really affect the way I hit them much. The fact that they are lighter actually makes me feel like I have more control over my ball striking and shot shaping (with the little shot shaping I acutally do).

Do they look good?

They look pretty great. I'm an Oklahoma State guy so I'm a sucker for anything with orange in it which, as you can see above, these have.

Do you have a video?

Mizuno has done a really great job tailoring their products for true amateurs who want to have a professional experiance. They even built an entire campaign around this idea called Play Famously:

Where can I buy these?

How about at Mizuno Golf.

And are they costly?

Middle of the road at $699 for steel and $899 for graphite.

Final thoughts?

I like these sticks a lot -- they're what I'm currently playing with.

If you're looking for a club you can control -- especially the longer irons -- this is a product you should definitely test.
