The Mizuno JPX-850 sits like an old-school driver, but boasts an incredible amount of adjustability, allowing you to set the club up any way you want it with the new Fast Track system. You may have to tinker some on the range, but Mizuno’s multiple weighting options gives you freedom to experiment to optimize your distance. The adjustable hosel delivers eight settings across five lofts, and we found the forgiveness factor to be a little less than the other drivers tested, although decent. Mizuno is known for making quality clubs, and they have achieved a solid performer in the JPX-850 Driver. The look is stylish, adjustability is well above-average, and the forgiveness is average. You will achieve a significant increase in distance off the tee, but only if you’re smart enough to know how to optimally adjust this driver.
