  1. Try the 425 SFT - it’s a total sleeper. Picked one up on a whim in mint condition for $325 with the always-amazing Tour 65X shaft and the thing is unreal. My natural shot is a baby draw, and with the loft down to 9.5° (face open 1°), it still produces a baby draw. Almost can’t not hit it straight.

  2. New Mitsubishi Tensei CK White 70S shaft (75g). Pulled from a Mizuno driver which played 45" (butt trimmed only), with an overall length of 43.75". Tip has been cleaned and prepped for your own adapter as-is, but can also be tip trimmed and used in a fairway wood. Also comes with a new GolfPride Z-Cord grip as shown. Specs attached, but feel free to send a note if you have any questions.

    Mine arrived with the blue "plug". It has a torx security screw, so I would think that it shouldn't be messed with. I believe someone posted that the threads are glued as well. 

    Torx Tamper-Proof bits are no big deal. Any decent mechanic has them on hand. Just takes some heat to break the thread adhesive loose - have pulled many from all kinds of heads.

  4. You’ll love it - especially when you find the right shaft. Their new drivers are as long as anything out there now.


    Also be advised there are two head weights for the X: 189g with the white 4g plug, or 196g with the blue 11g plug. Discerning between the two will make a big difference in how it works for you. 

  5. There are no issues bending them. Mine are 2° upright, bent myself on a friends Mitchell. It took some trial and error when I first learned how to use the machine, so I’m sure I overdid it more than once. Anything by Mizuno is easy to work with.

  6. New Ping Tour 75 driver shaft (by UST) in Stiff flex with 410/425 tip. Plays to standard length of 45.25" (overall length 44.25"). Can also be tip trimmed and used in a fairway wood easily enough. Torque is 2.9°. Tour Velvet grip is also new and will easily last a season or two.

  7. The new ST line is more muted than the previous models, but those never bothered me in any case. The fairway woods have a great 'crack' when you strike the ball, so they are even better. No complaints at all. 


    Plenty on YouTube as well - worth watching. 

  8. Never have hit the ball farther and straighter than I have with the ST-X driver and ST-Z 3-wood (which is also fantastic off the tee). These woods are just as good if not better than any others out there. Also an incredible bang for the buck.


    There is a thread on them here with plenty of comments:

  9. There is no "Best" when it comes to balls, shafts, heads, etc. Everyone will have a different answer. Get on the web, start looking at specs from all the manufacturers and pick up sleeves of balls to try. That's the only way to figure it out what works for you.

  10. New section of their site with some items available for MCA fans, with introductory free shipping. Prices are okay, but couldn't resist a couple Tensei items since I've missed all the giveaways they've had.




    Stuff up so far, with some different color options also available.















  11. Several friends of mine have the ST-Z and pound them. I wouldn’t buy based solely on that test - these new Mizuno drivers are every bit as good as the more expensive, highly advertised clubs out there. I switched to the ST-X, and so far it’s just amazing. Once you match either with the right shaft, you won’t be disappointed.

    Looks as if wrong shaft for Newton, wrong swing weight - correct both in a fitting and he will get more ball speed.


    Finding that driver SW at D4-5 gets one more ball speed. 




    The ST-X head he's using has the 4g aluminum weight which is unfortunate since the club is an absolute hammer with the 11g steel weight. Mine is heavy both in overall weight, and a higher SW than I was used to and I love it. With a 75g shaft, it's only 10g lighter than my 3-wood and it's a bomber. First time in a couple seasons that I'm happy with a driver that I hit absolutely straight with plenty of distance.


    For some additional trivia, the weight port has an M12-1.0 thread, so it will be harder to adjust SW on these unless just using hot melt since Mizuno only offers the 4g and 11g weights...

  13. If you are sensitive to swing weight, it will definitely be lower when you add an extension. I put one  in my GW temporarily since I was switching from a DG TI S400 to TI X100, but the shaft I had was shorter than I play by 1/4 - 1/2”. It was something like a C9 before using a bunch of lead tape, but once the correct shaft was installed to the proper length, it was back to D4. I neglected to weigh the extension, but it did add noticeable weight to the butt. 

  14. They rock. Feel and forgiveness is amazing, and the ball flies off the faces. Went 5-9 in HMP and 921F/ES21 in the other four wedges and couldn’t be happier.

    It’s a bit more fade biased than what I’m used to with ping. Could be the lie angle but zero complaints so far. 


    That and the face angle: it's 1° open in STD compared to the square face with the X. Also the lie angle is definitely flatter: 56.5° at STD (the X is 59°). 

  16. Would be curious how they stack up to the GolfPride Z-Cord. That one is also about 50g, on the slim side, and firm like these. Great score for sure, and at $0.99, there's no worry about trying to remove and reuse them if you are doing any testing with lengths, SW, etc. Nice find for sure.
