Just a pure guess. The two small square ones appear to control spin (low, med, high) based on moving them up/back or seperate. While the rectangle one looks to control club face Open/close.

 

Love the color also.

Love the blue head, but there's a lot going on on the bottom - curious just how much those sliding weights can actually alter launch and flight

Part of my fitting next weekend is the JPX 900 Driver. I'll post up my take of the guy doesn't bail on me again.

 

Also, if you are a fan or not of Rick Shiels, he does a test with this driver in stock setting, then a follow up set up for him. Results are extremely different, with the same shaft.

The adjustments look like they were designed by IKEA. Love that they stuck with the blue color.

Never hear much about Mizuno drivers. Other than blue finishes, what's the knock?

 

They tend to spin a lot. Also, Mizuno offers very minimal in terms of shafts in their fitting cart. The EZ was a very forgiving and easy to hit driver.

Interesting, it seems they are taking the adjustments to a new level. I too like the blue look. To my eye though the m2 just looks the best right now

Love the looks of the driver, however, there are way too many adjustments to worry about, at least for me that is!

It doesn't seem different at all from the JPX 900.  I really liked the JPX 900 driver, but I felt the one big downfall was the stock shaft.  The only way I was able to give it a good test was to take the shaft out of the JPX 850 driver.  Once I did that and put the settings to the same as when I went through a driver fitting of the JPX 850, the ball just launched off the face.  I loved the fact that they went back to a 460cc head.  I ended up trading in the JPX 850 because I needed a little more forgiveness that the 440cc head couldn't provide.  

 

I know a lot of people don't like all of the adjustability on this, or the JPX 900, driver.  Those settings should only be messed with by the fitter when you purchase the driver.  After that, those settings shouldn't change because they were the ones that gave you the best launch, ball speed, accuracy, etc. that the driver can give you.  All of those settings allow a professional fitter amazing options to dial the driver specific to your needs.  Granted people's swings change over time, and if you feel that the driver is no longer setup for you, have the same fitter take a look at it again.  Most of the time if you bought the driver from them, unless it's like Dick's or Golf Galaxy, then they will do it free of charge.

I'm another one who doesn't like all of the adjustment slides. That has been the turn off with Taylormade's M1 & M2 drivers. I love Mizuno though, so I am torn. I mostly stick with Callaway's when it comes to drivers.
