The piercing blue JPX-850, first seen on tour in April 2014, uses twin 8-gram weights which can be located on either the central sliding rail, or two lateral slots. With 10 unique settings, players of all head speeds can dial in their perfect launch and spin.

In combination with Mizuno's Quick Switch shaft release system, the JPX850 also offers lofts from 7.5 to 11.5 within one head for the ultimate in adjustability.

Mizuno JPX 850 Driver Review
The piercing blue JPX850 head is a compact, powerful 440cc and utilizes a Hot Metal face and Rebound Crown to maximize balls speeds.

Thanks for the vid – shame you didn’t middle one Rick. Feedback from the
tour is that this is a VERY low spin driver if you put the weights to the
side ports. We’ve had a few tour and aspiring tour players go with the
weights back and central. Some more info on the weights here – for those
that haven’t stumbled into the R&D video. http://youtu.be/kUD_yBTtr-k

fullwerkes says:

Finally Rick, you adjusted everything on the fly for us to see and showed
us the numbers. Please please please do more of this as it really does make
the videos a lot more interesting for us average joes 🙂 Great as always.

ZeroSumJ1 says:

It’s ugly :(

Lee (formerly Cahnt) says:

4 or 5 lovely straight hits. Then the switch to the setting designed for
straight hits….and a duck hook lol!! Delivered on the lower spin though.
Another good video. Love the feature whereby we can see the ball flight.
Think Parfield will have to step up with the same!

liam powell says:

what launch monitor do you use???

Cian Lanigan says:

Putting the loft up to 11.5 seemed to hinder you there Rick

Johnny Hally says:

I feel like thats not going in the bag because its a mizuno. It should. You
hit it great

Eric Davis says:

Rick. Don’t read your spin numbers on duck hooks. You were hitting your
straight shots at 17* launch angle. No need to increase to 11.5. Rather
you should decrease loft. You will be less likely to hook it and your spin
will reduce, and your launch angle will come down. This was looking like
a 315y driver if you set it to 9.5!!!

matthew madalone says:

Rick, I think manufacturers are starting to figure out that not all golfers
benefit from 460cc driver heads and actually lose club head speed because
of drag/aerodynamics. I still have an old blue Nike Forged 350cc driver and
swing it 4-6 mph faster than my srixon z 545 head. Yes the face is
supposedly harder to find because it is littler but the way I look at it,
better players find the middle of the face more often than most high
handicappers do. So if you can learn to hit the middle of the smaller face
then your ball striking is good. Just my opinion. I used to be an Adams
rep and this discussion came up years ago by us reps stating that getting
to big and bulgy would eventually affect CH speed. Probably why Taylormade
and Callaway use 46″ shafts in some drivers.

Robert Potter says:

Hmmmmm VERY interesting club!
Maybe the sleeping giant that is Mizuno has finally woke up?
The last major club that they plugged was the T-Zoid back in the early –
mid 90’s.
TaylorMade & my favourite, Callaway, have flooded the market of late with
adjustable Woods, but damn it, this one may be the best yet and possibly
the one with the most longevity.
It looks like they have really spent some time in R&D to develop it. I’m
massively impressed!
Rick, your 3rd & 4th shots on the vid were deffo the best strikes despite
higher spin rates compared to later on. Plus compared to your first two
shots you completed your backswing a lil more (Dr Dobby in the house).
A great review buddy. Really liked it.

Clay Nash says:

This driver is very very good. low spin, smaller head, has forgiveness, and
adjustability. Played the ping g30 this summer with a fujikura pro shaft,
and that was a great driver. The mizuno is better (for me granted) 10 to 15
yards longer, higher ball speeds and better spin numbers are the
difference. Not a mizuno snob, play callaway apex irons, but people should
really give this driver a try. The stock shaft is amazing. If mizuno
offered two more quality stock shafts to fit a wider group of golfers, and
also had a black head option, in my humble opinion they would sale a ton of
drivers. Bottom line I ordered my JPX 850 yesterday after a fitting
session, and had no intention of buying a new driver. Go hit this thing,
you may grow fond of mizuno blue after being further down the fairway. 

Allan Butler says:

Are we sure Luke is gaming this i know he was testing it but i thought he
was gaming a SLDR???

Welsh TourDrivenGolfer says:

With the weights on both sides it gives the straightest flight…*hits a
duck hook*

Joshua Payne says:

Seeing how much the adjustability changes the flight and shape makes me
like this club even more. Might be time to ditch my i25.

George mckeever says:

When is your match against meandmygolf coming.

golfinguna says:

Ihave never hit a Mizuno driver before???????????? OOOOoooooooo!! Rick you
little liar. Ball marks on the new driver???

John Cordall says:

Another great vid……love the passion you show….agree with the majority
it’s a great club, by far and away the straightest you’ve shown. Any chance
of putting a centre line on your flightscope to show how close, or how far
the shot is off line ( we can all see the bad ones but it would be nice to
see how good the good ones are)
Keep up the good work.

A. Caslow says:

After watching a “boatload’ of your vids.. Rick, I can’t see but a yard,
more or less, in difference between then all. This is going as far back as
R1, using swing speed as the basis for comparison.

Google-is-a-pain says:

I liked how you showed a little of the contents of the manual and you also
zoomed in on the changing of the weights. You also showed the club head at
address. The ball flight path is always great. All these little touches
make for a far more interesting review than many others. As for the club
itself, I thought the build quality looked brilliant and classy compared to
some other recent adjustable drivers (SLDR anyone?). Thanks for the review
Rick

Craig Hopcroft says:

All apart from 1 hook that has to be one of the straightest driving reviews
I’ve seen you do, it really suited your draw. Surely straight and long is
better than huge and off target. I’ve got the SLDR 460 not that long ago so
if it wasn’t for that I’d defo give this one a serious look. Great review

Todd Brown says:

Very impressed with Mizuno! they’re stepping up their game. Beautiful
looking club and very impressive results. When you changed the weights it
preformed like Mizuno said it would. Too bad I just got a Ping G30 or I
might think about getting this club.

J@D W says:

Impressive club. Pro might go long with 8.5 loft given his angle of attack
and launch angles.

hbyrdut says:

Maybe your GC2 is having issues. It seems like all your drives are low on
the face with all of your driver reviews.

oskarfahlstrom says:

Not sure why but frame rate on the Foresight has been a little choppy in
the last couple of videos. 

nova68nova says:

I think this club should probably be more popular… Mizuno have given
players exactly what they’ve been asking for – Simple looks, 440 head,
adjustable, 45″ stock length, etc. Maybe Rick never got it to 300, but he
was hitting way more fairways. 

Jae K says:

Finally! Please do the 850 fairways too!! 

Matthew Collins says:

By far the best driver youve hit….. straight and decent length. You wont
bag it purely coz of the name

Courtney Taylor says:

I’d love to see Finch hit this driver. Looks awesome.

Stompy77 says:

Hey Rick, question about the weighting system. Let’s say you add equal
perimeter weights, perhaps 10 gram or more, to older model drivers with
adjustable weighting (R11, R11s specifically) and adjustable loft, would
you get the same effect of high launch, low spin?

Tadhg O’Connor says:

Great review, got to be loosing some forgiveness with the smaller head.

JZORD1527 says:

Rick,
Will you be doing any reviews of the Nike Vapor line of drivers, woods, and
hybrids?

T Dub says:

One thing of note is he normally swings it 115MPH on his biggest hits. If
you were to add 4-6mph club head speed to these hits he would’ve been well
over 300 just like the SLDR 430 and the Titleist 915D3. He might have
actually been longer. His ball speed with 110mph was 155mph. With the
Titleist he was at 115mph and 162mph. Pretty sure this Mizuno with a proper
shaft is probably every bit as long as the Titleist and the TM.

Patrick Kelly says:

This guy is a crossfield wanna be !!! Lol your channel almost mirrors his
!! Are you taking the piss ?

Andy Yeomans says:

Probably the most consistently straight drivér I have seen you hit (until
you moved the weights!!!), please include dispersion comparisons in your
videos, Rick.

NovaScene says:

Great stuff Rick! Can you do a FW vs on JPX 850 vs Titleist 915 F? Those
are the ones I think I will demo to drop the G25 4wood out of the bag..

jai thakker says:

whens your course vlog coming out 

Fore @u says:

Rick do u ever try mizuno mp h5 irons

Tim DD says:

Cool vid. Glad i subbed.

Paul Reuten says:

never seen you hit them straight before. What’s wrong?

gabe soliari says:

@RickShielsPGA thank you for the review! It is good to see the spin
numbers drop once you moved the weights! I would really have loved to see
you hit a solid middle with that setting. I guess the question for me is
how important is custom fitting? I know with the SLDR, D3, and I think G30
you were custom fit for those prior to doing video testing.

Harry McTaggart says:

Can you review Mizuno MP4’s?

John D says:

so far noting beats the r15 right

Matthew Collins says:

Prefer black to blue. Just a marketing thing

Matt Vernot says:

By far the straightest driver you have hit in the past few videos… why
not bag it for the added accuracy?

Alps P says:

Another superb vid….luv the way u kept wanting to hit another one to get
to 300 lol
What would be awesome is if you could get say an average 14-18 handicapper
to hit it and see the stats…..the club looks nice but as much as I would
think about getting it…..your stats are just too awesome so not sure how
I’d compare etc, hence an ameatuer would be a more fairer
comparison…..hope that makes sense. Keep up the great work

liam powell says:

thanks

Wz Tr says:

‘line up’ bs on the top of woods, what a joke, your grip does that.
