Mizuno JPX Fli-Hi: Strengthen Your Long Game With Mizuno’s Precision Hybrids

BRASELTON, GA – Japanese golf equipment manufacturer Mizuno has engineered the JPX Fli-Hi to replace less reliable long and mid-irons to help golfers of varying standards to get the very most from their long games.

Mizuno has a long-held objective of helping golfers of all abilities play better golf. The brand’s Fli-Hi concept was developed to meet every golfer’s demand for greater playability and easier ball-flighting potential at the longer end of the bag.

The JPX Fli-Hi range of hybrids, #4 – #7, are packed with innovative technologies to help golfers launch the ball high and land it soft from longer range.

Using the JPX Fli-Hi you can replace your strongest lofted irons for more practical distance gaps at the longer end of the set. Weight is located internally on the back side to encourage a draw bias in addition to higher launch. The JPX Fli-Hi can be included within a custom iron set, with the same shafts

The Fli-Hi’s wider footprint and material construction deliver an even more playable, high-flying alternative to their predecessors. A 17-4 stainless steel face and 431 SS body deliver an upgrade in ball speed, while the bendable hosel allows for adjustments in lie angle.

The clubs feature a lighter crown which allows for a higher ball flight, while a re-engineered Wave Soleplate increases the effective high ball-speed area of the Fli-Hi’s clubface to deliver more consistent ball speeds.

The JPX Fli-Hi is designed to slot seamlessly in to a set, with the models from #4 to #7 designed to correspond directly to the irons they have been created to replace.

The JPX Fli-Hi range features a graduating profile from fairway wood to hybrid to maximize playability. The 20 degree (#4) has a wider fairway type profile, moving towards a tighter hybrid type shaped 29 degree (#7) with a deeper face.

With a deeper center of gravity than the replaced iron, the JPX Fli-Hi produces more predictable launch and spin rates, thereby more reliable distance gaps between clubs.

Golfers unsure as to how many long irons to replace should visit their local Mizuno Swing DNA center where qualified fitters will be able to analyze their Shaft Optimizer readings and make their recommendations accordingly. JPX-Fli Hi hybrids can be ordered individually or as part of a custom set.

PXG Releases Milled Blades Engineered for Precision and Control on the Golf Course

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – PXG has released its latest innovation in golf equipment – it’s new milled PXG® 0317 STTM Blades. Engineered to give better golfers complete control over every shot, these pure blades feature a tour-inspired design, industry-leading manufacturing techniques, and a striking aesthetic.

Each iron in the PXG 0317 ST set is triple forged from 8620 soft carbon steel to create a tight, strong grain structure that prolongs the grooves’ life and enhances the overall feel. Then, the irons are CNC milled to ensure every surface, curve, and angle are produced to exact specifications. Finally, the blades undergo a precise robotic polishing process to refine the sole and other geometries for a flawless finish and unmatched consistency club to club.

In addition to high-grade materials and precision manufacturing, PXG 0317 ST Blades are characterized by a unique, tour-inspired blended set design. Harder-to-hit 3- and 4-irons feature a cavity back that makes it easier to hit the ball up in the air and increases forgiveness on mishits. The remaining clubs in the set feature a solid-body design that delivers a penetrating trajectory with high spin, exceptional consistency, and maximum control.

PXG 0317 ST Blades also incorporate PXG’s Precision Weighting Technology to fine-tune performance further. The large tungsten weight on the back of the clubhead is used to optimize the swing weight/head weight target on the center-of-gravity location. Optimization can be experienced during an in-person golf club fitting and is dialed in as part of the custom build process.

Named for the 0317 U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper, these blades support long-range accuracy to any target.

The new milled PXG 0317 ST Blades are available in a Chrome or Xtreme Dark finish.
