SPECS: 15°, 18° (+/-2 either direction), with Mitsubishi Tensei Blue shaft.
RECOMMENDATION: Targets a wide variety of players looking for distance, adjustability, and forgiveness.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Ridged-sole geometry adds spring at impact for hotter ball speeds across more of the face; maraging steel face for more ball speed and distance; a waffle pattern on the underside of the crown saves weight for a lower CG and improved launch.
Engineers at Mizuno wanted to make sure the newest woods can compete with the big boys in metalwood design, and they did a nice job delivering. Wave technology for faster ball speed, a waffle crown for weight savings and a maraging steel face deliver the goods for a wide range of players.
“Good adjustability helps dial in the fit, while various technologies provide mid-high launch, good ball-speed numbers and acceptable forgiveness.”
