Very good quality club. Mizuno always produces high quality equipment

Pros: 

JPX is Mizuno’s name for its most modernistic irons. Though MP is Mizuno’s flagship family, JPX has been coming on strong.

"The JPX EZ is going to turn you into a player who can take risks - someone who can take the shot on and not think about the danger. You’re going to hit shots that you’ve never been able to hit before.”

Tomo Aoki – Golf Club Engineer

"Your odds just improved with the incredible JPX-EZ irons.

Combining Mizuno’s HOT METAL face design and ultra pocket cavity (4-7 iron) the JPX-EZ irons fire higher and longer with a predictable, tight dispersion. The Harmonic Impact Technology (H.I.T.) engineered cavity frame ensures that the JPX-EZ feels like every Mizuno iron should, but with forgiveness you can’t imagine.

Attack the course. Play like you’ve never played before with the JPX-EZ". - MIZUNO

From around the web: Golfwrx.com:

The JPX-EZ Forged irons are larger than Mizuno’s popular MP series irons, but they’re made with the same “Grain Flow” forging process and have a similar buttery soft feel. The distance consistency of the irons is amazing. Both slightly mis-hit and well-struck shots seem to go the same distance.
The style of the Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged has become very popular over the last few years, because it offers what many golfer are looking for: feel, looks, performance and forgiveness. It is because of these features that the JPX-EZ Forged can be appealing to a variety of handicaps.

The irons are made with Mizuno’s “Grain Flow” forging process from 1025E carbon steel, which makes the irons feel very soft despite their aggressive cavity-back styling. But with the multi-thickness CORTECH face, the ball speed across the face has been increased from previous models, which allows for maximum distance.

Pros: The JPX-EZ Forged irons are larger than Mizuno’s popular MP series irons, but they’re made with the same “Grain Flow” forging process and have a similar buttery soft feel. The distance consistency of the irons is amazing. Both slightly mis-hit and well-struck shots seem to go the same distance.

Cons: The top lines of the irons might be a little on the thick side for blade lovers. Also, the lofts are a little strong, so be cautious of a low launch angle and spin rate.

Bottom Line: If you are looking for a players iron that offers a lot of forgiveness with consistent yardages, then the JPX-EZ Forged is an iron that you need to try.
Overview

The style of the Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged has become very popular over the last few years, because it offers what many golfer are looking for: feel, looks, performance and forgiveness. It is because of these features that the JPX-EZ Forged can be appealing to a variety of handicaps.

The irons are made with Mizuno’s “Grain Flow” forging process from 1025E carbon steel, which makes the irons feel very soft despite their aggressive cavity-back styling. But with the multi-thickness CORTECH face, the ball speed across the face has been increased from previous models, which allows for maximum distance.

I mentioned the lofts being strong earlier, but the long irons were still easy to launch high. They have a deep center of gravity (COG), so with stronger lofts and a low COG the ball can really have some serious speed off the face. Ask any manufacturer; lower lofts make a huge difference in terms of ball speed, so a lower COG is essential in order to allow golfers to achieve a playable launch angle.

To me, the JPX-EZ Forged felt almost as soft as Mizuno’s MP series irons, with just a little more of a “pop” sound at impact. It really feels like the ball is coming off the face hot, and the numbers prove it. I tested the irons with the stock True Temper XP 105 shaft, and I liked the lighter weight and profile. Overall, the shaft felt pretty responsive, and seemed to help the ball in the air.

From Golf.com

Our testers concluded that the Mizuno's JPX-825 Pro isn't for those who make big distance a priority. No problem. The JPX-EZ Forged, made of 1025-carbon steel, has a multi-thickness face plus an "undercut" in the 4- to 7-irons.

This construction increases the face area that produces maximum rebound, for faster ball speeds and more distance. Besides that, it has more heel/toe weighting and a deep center of gravity (CG) to aid launch.

Testers also felt that lesser-skilled players may want more forgiveness than the JPX-825 provides on off-center hits.

Mizuno put deep undercuts in the JPX-EZ cavity to shift added mass lower and to the extreme heel and toe, while a larger "trampoline area" provides more pop. We suggest you see a clubfitter if you're interested in the irons.

Cons: 

The top lines of the irons might be a little on the thick side for blade lovers. Also, the lofts are a little strong, so be cautious of a low launch angle and spin rate.

Summary: 

If you are looking for a players iron that offers a lot of forgiveness with consistent yardages, then the JPX-EZ Forged is an iron that you need to try.

It’s not easy to make a forged iron that produces consistent yardages and great ball speed, but that’s exactly what Mizuno did with the JPX-EZ Forged. Whether you are a mid-handicapper who wants to play a forged iron, or a scratch player who wants something easier to hit but with the same control, these are an iron you should hit before you buy your next set

The bottom line: JPX-EZ irons are designed to hit ball higher and longer with less effort.
