    I guess I'm confused as to who the audience is for this video...



    They share with you the detailed Trackman numbers, but there is zero in the way of actual driver specifics. No shaft info, Keith eludes to hot melt but there is no further exploration of why (so no club head weighting info), Chris doesn't speak to the improvements made in this iteration of driver, etc.



    Maybe I have unrealistic expectations...




    I think the video is aimed at a wider audience than WRX, hence the normal speak and not techie talk. I could be mistaken in my assumption though.




    I think the point was simply to show that, like Mizuno irons, PGA Tour players are talking about Mizuno woods. That is the breakthrough. In the past Mizuno woods were not strong contenders to get in Tour bags, but that has changed with the ST190.



    Mitchell was a TaylorMade driver player who tested the ST190 as a favor to his friend Jeff Cook, a Mizuno tour player rep. And Mitchell was smitten by the driver to the point that he put it in play. And now that he has, he loves it and other players are noticing the club.



    I believe the resin reference is to the TaylorMade M5/M6. Mitchell mentions glue in the head. That is part of the new TM design. They purposely made a driver face thst is hot beyond the USGA limits and then injected resin to stiffen the face and bring it back within the legal limit.



    Mizuno also made the ST190 too hot to be conforming but used internal strictures — ribs — to stiffen the face and make it legal. Two different ways of doing the same thing. Mitchell preferred the sound and feel of the Mizuno method.

    I’m very interested in shaft offerings as well. I’m pretty much otherwise ready to plunk down.



    No upcharge options are always nice, but I also hope they have a comprehensive selection of “exotics”, even if there is a reasonable upcharge. For the current line, it seems like they only offered the tensei non pro. And not every weight or every flex was available in each shaft. I don’t know if they are able to custom order shafts “off menu” or not.



    I think if the st190 comes in at 400 dollars and has a strong shaft selection, it should be a run away winner.

    in what way? sorry, but it's sort of a pet peeve of mine when someone says something "sounds/feels" better than another club without qualifying it in someone. to some people loudish and tingy is better, others prefer dull and/or muted.

    From what I hear it's going to be 18 no-charge options, including Tensei(non pro models) white, blue, orange, Kuro dual silver tini, Bassara, and complete ATMOS lineup.

    +1. I just bought a Rogue driver & 3 wood last Spring, and I don't replace clubs very often. I like Mizuno a lot, that's what my hybrid & all irons/wedges are. But I never considered the ST180 because it was blue, that simple. I realize that doesn't make sense to others, but how a club looks is a factor in what I will buy & play.

    i think in this case it does make some sense since you are seeing the color during the course of play unlike complaining how the sole of a driver looks when the only time you see it is uncovered in your bag. if something doesn't fit your eye at address, it just doesn't fit your eye...be it color, headshape or otherwise.

    Looooooove the stock length at 45". This and Cobra offering an optional stock setup at 44.5" really are enticing me to just buy for fun to test. I really can't stand that the others only offer stock length at 45.5 and 45.75. I'm never going to play it at that length, and then I have to go through a bunch of hassle making them shorter and adding weight to the head.



    Also, if I can get the regular ST190 with Atmos black for no up-charge at $400, will buy and try for sure. Atmos Black worked well for me in a fitting at Club Champion. I know it is stock on the ST190G, but hopefully can order it on the non-G for no extra $. Funny how $400 seems like a steal these days...

    I was always taylormade driver since the release of the original M2. I made a switch to the ST180HL driver last season because the results were that much more consistent. I told myself I would get over the blue and sound which was obvious steps behind TM. I really don't think the numbers will be that much of a difference with the new driver but the sound is far ahead of what the 180 is at. That and the new look will get me to upgrade. I am bummed with how much the price of my ST180 driver has dropped in just one year though. Will take a quiet a hit upgrading.

    Not sure, both are low launch low spin. I've hit both but years in between, my initial thought is the Atmos feels little smoother/softer in the hands and the Black Tie a little more stout/stable.

    anyone know if the adapter for driver is the same as the jpx850?
  • adam2883adam2883 Members Posts: 240 ✭✭
    Maybe its been mentioned and I missed it, but does anyone know or understand the settings with the weights in terms of creating a bias? Was hitting this yesterday in some driver fittings and we were trying to figure it out, not info from Mizuno with the driver and there's nothing on the website yet. We were working on setting it up fade bias, so would that mean the toe weight needs to be closet to the face and the heel weight furthest back or vice versa? Had it set with the toe weight forward and the heel weight back. Great looking and feeling driver, was hitting it with the Atmos Blue, was getting good distance and spin numbers with it but was the worst in dispersion for me in regards to the others I have hit so far.



    **This is more of a product fitting I am doing for a company as opposed to actual fitting for myself so I am not always able to get the most optimum shaft choice, get as close to possible.

    fade with higher spin: both weights in toe and back

    fade with lower spin: both weights in the toe and forward





    Or remove the heel weight and use just the toe weight as listed above. Just be aware of the overall headweight and swing weight adjustments.

    Yes. The adapter will be the same, but they are changing the numbering. Instead is having the lofts on the sleeve, it will say +/-1, +/-2, similar to a Taylormade sleeve.

    Like many here, I'm a huge Mizuno fan and have used their irons for last 20 years now. Would love to see them increase their driver presence on tour and with better amateurs. I notice from Getty images however that Davis Love already seems to have replaced his with a Titleist TS3.

    Ironically the familiarity that makes players gravitate to Mizuno irons may be the thing that keeps the driver out of their bag..

    Same here about the blue... I seemed to have crushed it when hitting center of club face but off center not too good. I'm very interested in this club though.
