It has been a long time coming but Mizuno ST190 drivers are going to make a dent in the very competitive driver market. Over the last say 4 years, Mizuno has made a big push to expand their market share beyond just irons, wedges and hybrids. To be very honest, the technology may have been there, but golfers just were not into looking at a blue crown. And, with very little presence on tour, it was still a tough sell.
Well, all that has changed here with the new ST190 and ST190G drivers. Incorporating a very forgiving and fast SP700Ti face, light Cortech technology and a composite crown, these drivers LOOK like they will deliver the speed and accuracy. And in our preliminary testing, ball speeds are up from last year’s models, smash factors in the 1.48-1.50 range and a bit more consistency than other models we tested. Again, just a few preliminary tests but so far so good.
The ST190 (on the right in the photo) is the most forgiving head designed for slightly higher launch and spin than the ST190G. But, the ST190G weights can be moved to adjust for height and spin (forward for lower spin and launch) and side to side for draw or fade bias.
You should really check these bad boys out as the sound and feel, with the right shaft of course, is excellent.
