The Mizuno JPX825 Hybrid features a smooth crown designed to fire the ball high, long and unwaveringly straight.
The JPX825 is created to look easy to hit. The face is highly visible at address and the leading front edge that wants to slide under the ball. The square face angle combined with deeply set internal weighting ensures shots set off on a high flight with little deviation.
A new, maraging steel, L-Face construction is featured on the JPX825 Hybrid, that enables a rounded edge between the sole and the face, allowing the face to flex for higher ball speeds and more distance.
Although the JPX825 is relatively large by hybrid standards, the IP face and stealth, jet black crown colour create a compact, powerful look. While low handicappers may find the JPX825 Hybrid stubbornly resistant to shot-shaping, they will be attracted by the powerful sound at impact.
Average rating for this product from 1 reviews
At last - Mizuno finally make a decent hybrid! The JPX825 hybrid is more than decent though. Gone are the thick silver lines on the top and the iffy colour schemes in favour of a sleek black finish that means you don't have to swing it with your eyes closed.
The head is generous for a hybrid and manages to stay on the rounded side of being too pointy at the back, as the weight is low and back. Like the fairway, the JPX825 hybrid features an on set face that sits slightly in front of the hosel. This makes it appear very neutral and you get a very clear view of the ball and face at impact that gives you lots of confidence to sweep through the shot.
The sound and feel at impact are excellent and the mid-flight trajectory was just what you want from this type of club. Mizuno say you should not be able to move it, but slight shaping was still possible left and right, as well as up and down.
Also, the like the fairway, the head felt light and combined well with the very good Fujikura Orochi stock shaft.
The only fly in the ointment was the black PVD finish that did not last more than a good range session on the leading edge of the sole of the club. Given the amount of ground contact this club will get you could find a different style of club after a while, but we think it will add to the looks.
Combined with the MP-H4 utility iron, Mizuno has 2 good options for hybrids for single figures and teen handicaps and we would recommend them both.
