I saw a 10.5 demo head (straight 190, no "g") at my PGASS store today. They had a wrench and some shafts in the bay, so I popped in a shaft just to see how it looks at address. All I can say is..... NICE!! Beautiful looking head. To my eye, it looked square, not open in the neutral position. Maybe that's because to me every other club looks closed in the neutral position.
1) Why is the g $100 more? I get that it's more adjustable but seems excessive.
2) Where can I find a list of stock and optional shafts? mizunousa was no help.
I don’t get the more loft reference, the clubs do sit open (190G) and basically square (190). I will say the clubs sit like a Callaway FT-9 Tour in terms of feel at address, which is one of my personal top 5 drivers of all time. When I was able to find the head in the swing and connect with the center it did perform as promised and the shot was one I typically only dreamt of being able to hit at night. My only concern was how noticeably light the stock head is compared to other offerings out there. I still plan to get professionally fitted, but I was just hoping for some first time hitting bay magic.
I agree with the sentiment that it's crazy to put your product out a month after everyone else. It's cold, people are bored hitting balls at golf Galaxy every day, and st190 isn't even an option.
Had 2 friends just get epic and cobra, and they literally couldn't hit the Mizuno before mazing a decision.
Mizuno doesn't care, and I semi appreciate the fact that they do things on their own schedule, but to me that's bad business. Hard to support companies that make decisions like that.
Said the former CEO of EA about battlefield 5... Key word is former.
I pre-ordered, so mines coming either way. It will struggle to knock out the ts2 but I'm going to give it a chance. Very few people are that patient.
2 people I know got new drivers, and were both completely open. Mizuno wasn't even in the mix despite being what everyone thinks will be awesome.

They miss out perennially with lefties all over the world since they never make their best irons in left hand. Iron envy to the extreme with the tours it is so souring I even refuse to buy mizuno baseball equipment because it has caused me to hate mizuno so much.
If only Mizuno would bring this option to the market! Mother of darkness, take my money and the bank's while you're at it.
Right?! Just give me a black ion finish Mizuno iron and Ill be the happiest golfer alive.
