Is it just me or do the Mizuno woods and hybrids look like junior clubs? I actually think they could improve their sales by dropping woods altogether. They have never gotten it right. Throw all that marketing money to promoting only irons and putters.. Hogan did ok for years without offering woods, prior to their purchase by Callaway. Miura does great as well and no one plays their woods. Really, most of Mizuno's irons wedges and putters are gorgeous but their new woods look flat out stupid.

The first blonde (orange top) is Tina Miller who was in the Big Break Hawaii. Wow.

 

Isn't she supposed to be over with the Powerbilt "Air Force" people?

 

By the looks of the grip and shaft, I'm pretty sure shes holding an AFO but I could be wrong.

 

 

I'm really liking the look of the MX-700 woods and the MP-67s are gorgeous

I have to disagree as well. I have an F50 3W and 5W. The 5W is ok, but I absolutely love the 3W. I've never had a Mizuno driver, but the fairway wood is great.

Mizuno's woods look like kids clubs??? I have two words for you...Taylor Made. How many triangle shaped drivers did they put out last year? If anything the MX700 looks like a less busy 07 burner and those sold like crazy.

 

The MP600 was one of the best drivers on the market last year. I doubt there will be too many drivers that top it this year.

 

Hogan took a stab at woods prior to being sold because they recognized they were not in an important segment of the market. Miura's woods are also fantastic, I have the 3 wood, but you take any Miura product to a course or range across the country and 9 out of 10 people would have a clue what you were holding.

I really do hope the best for this mx 700 line up.

 

Many would agree that mizuno makes truly exceptional irons but when it comes to woods their tradition is steeped in mediocrity. The mp-600 was a baby step in the right direction despite being late to the moveable weight dance. The mx560 was really an underated performer but com'on I thought my FT-5 was loud.

 

I anticipate the mx700 ending up a muted 560 clone which is not a bad thing. And as far as the graphics go its really a non factor. Much like the Burner lineup once I start my backswing I don't even notice.

Isn't this amazing that most Mizuno's irons look classy and understated with their clean, pure lines, whilst Mizuno's woods offerings are just as flashy and busy as anything from TM out there.

The 62's looks AWESOME.

 

 

I agree They look so good. They feel so good also. The 62 and the 52's IMO have a fantastic change from the last 57 or the 60's. The shape at adress looks better to me. There isnt that "jog" from topline to the hosel in the neck area. I love the new look and cant give them enough credit for the sole designs. Bravo!!!

Gaming the MP-62 about 4 month and I´m still astonished how good these irons feel and perform, but more astonished how forgiving these irons are.

 

I don´nt kwow, why, but I´m thinking it´s the mix of the dual cavaty and sole grind. The woods have in Europe and Asia a much better

reputation as in US and are alway top ranked in the tests. The new MX-700 line looks good and I´m sure, performs excellent.

:clapping: The MX 700 driver had the highest launch, lowest spin of any driver tested in the Hot List this year. The hybrids have a drop down crown that allows the club to be fitting for loft and lie. The Rep brought them out on Saturday and we all gave them a good test. The Driver generated great numbers on the launch monitor and we all liked the feel and ball flight. The Hybrid was one of the easiest ones I have every hit and I liked the way it set up and felt.

The Rep let me take one of each to the course yesterday and I liked the Driver and Hybrid so much I ordered them today. I need some more time with the FW only since I have never been that comfortable with a shallow face 3 wood. When I stayed down and made good contact I hit it very well with good launch and distance.

Do yourself a favor and give these a real try, I think you will be very impressed.

I'll actually confirm, fwiw, that Mizuno's woods are generally pretty mediocre in the performance department, with the notable exception of the MP-600, which I find to be amazing.

 

Any news on an MP line of woods/hybrids, or a new MP driver?

917 D3 9.5° (AD GP 6X), G 3W 14.5° (Rome 888), 816 H 18° (Motore), JPX 900 Tour 3-PW (S300 AMT), T7 52° and 58° (S300), Bettinardi BB0, B330S
