These look so good. That Max driver might be the best-looking of all the super high MOI offerings this year.

Can you tell us if these will be on the next podcast @knudson81?? Very interested in this lineup but reviews so far are few and far between.

 

Really liking the shape of the fairway wood. Seems to sit pretty square, too.

Probably not next week, but will for sure be hitting them. I think the hybrid has a great shape to it!

Just picked up the 22 hybrid and played a round on Saturday. Great. Clean and high out of the rough. A keeper (for now of course)

Couldn’t agree more

Looks awesome. At playing position, does it sit pretty square? What are your first impressions hitting it? How's it compare to anything else on the market you've tested or whatever it replaced? 

 

Really surprised there aren't some reviews on these yet! I know it's a deluge during release season and YouTubers, etc. have a ton of stuff to get to. As a lefty, unfortunately Mizuno stuff is hard to come by to demo around here, so I'm really eager to hear others' impressions.

was there a bias to the hybrid?  how was the spin?

No bias that I saw even on the range but was able to hit a nice high draw. Made my day.

Had some range time yesterday and played a few holes at my home club. 
 

Sits dead square to my eye when soled. Very easy for alignment. 
 

I’ve played the tsr3 for the last year or so. Really like the tsr3. I can’t say the ST max is going to replace it, but initial results were very encouraging. Plenty long and more stable/forgiving than the titleist. I know for sure I caught one a bit toe side and fully expected a smothered one OB left, but it still ended up left edge of fairway. I am sure the tsr3 would have been OB left. If I see a few more of those kinds of results, it will find its way into my bag a lot more than the tsr3 does. Sounds/feels quite muted and solid. 
 

I’m looking for a higher MOI head that retains high ball speeds and distance. TBD, but very promising initial test run. Looks and sounds worlds better to me than the G430 10k

I demo’d the driver today and came away very impressed. Sound and feel are top notch and speed hung with everything else. Didn’t find it too draw biased either which to me has put me off to some of the recent Mizuno heads. Only thing i don’t like is the stock options for shafts are terrible for SS north of 110.

Maybe the Hzrdus Black RDX 70 6.5 Would be ok at 110mph. I have played that shaft in a mizuno 3 wood. I found it much more neutral than the Gen 4 black which went straight left for me.

There's several reviews on the youtube now for it - including this one - mentions how much heavier the back weight is at 54g than say the Ping 10k Max

 

The top view from those pics above looks remarkably good for a 'max' head - and for address looks, i'd imagine the hosel can adjust to 3 degrees open if you want... (and I do want 😉 as i'm replacing a long long term Adams 915d head so even a Titleist TSR4 at normal A1 setting looks closed to me)

I dont see that as a stock option:

Look at ordering it through a golf retailer. I just checked a popular retailer, and the Hzrdus Black RDX is listed when you use the " customize me " feature. 

Correct, you have to hit the custom button on all of the retailer sites.
