OFFICIAL MIZUNO PICS - MP-630 Fast Track


Recommended Posts

MP-630, MP Titanium, MP CLK
The Official Pics from Mizuno - here's what their press release says:

Surfacing first on Japanese websites back in July 09 the introduction of the new HOT METAL MP-630 Driver, fairway and hybrid has been a tantalizing affair. Now with prototypes tweaked and a second version of the driver added to the line, the finished MP Series will be unveiled at the Orlando PGA Golf show in January.

The range is the first to headline Mizuno’s Japan domestic and US / Western MP wood line at the same time. Focusing its R&D efforts into a single international line has enabled the company to launch its most uncompromising line of MP woods, in an aim to elevate its status on tour worldwide.

The line is led by the stunning MP-630 FAST TRACK driver. This evolved version of Mizuno’s FAST TRACK’s moveable weight system boasts 45 different trajectory settings. Working in conjunction with Mizuno’s HOT METAL face, the new generation FAST TRACK can be used to optimize spin rates for vast distance gains. There is also a stripped back version of the MP-630 minus the FAST TRACK system. With the same ‘tour-ready’ 445cc profile and slightly open face, the MP-630 has internal weighting set to replicate the FAST TRACK’s neutral position.

The sleek, ‘tour ready’ appearance extends into the compact MP Titanium fairway woods. Elegant in profile, the MP Titanium’s best trick is to create the illusion of being purely a shot shapers design. However, a HOT METAL Beta Ti face hidden within its 5 piece construction gives the MP Titanium an unexpected sizzle on impact.

Finally a gem of a hybrid, for strong ball strikers put off by the ‘hook machine’ status of its competitors. More compact, with a ‘tour-ready’ square face and low profile the MP CLK offers something a little different for its category – forgiveness, without a complete loss of workability.

This too is yet another stellar line-up for 2010. The stock 'Made for Mizuno' Fubuki is nice feature. Extremely solid with great ball flights. My only complaint was the look of the hybrid...what happened to the solid color crown like the previous model?

That driver looks dead shut from that angle. Hopefully that's not actually how it'll sit at address cause it looks great otherwise.

What is the standard shaft length on the driver? I find it hard to believe that the MP line would have a closed face when the MX line sits pretty close to square. I'm one of very few who actually like Mizzy drivers and I'm trying to get something to kick the MP-001 out of the bag...the MP 630 might just do it. Hopefully it's not 46" long.

looks like Mizuno is on the right track with their wood line. I always thought the MP-600 was one of the most underrated drivers on the market.

Looks sweet.... I'm gonna assume that the one pic is just a weird angle and that it sits square.... Hopefully they've been able to merge the distance of the MX line with the great look and accuracy from the 600. I've been playing more with the 600 lately as the accuracy is just so much more worth it than a few yards, but both would be nice.

The woods look tasty! Great size, and hopefully great feel with Hot Metal. The 600 was a solid club, but maybe not quite equal with the longest clubs out there.
The hybrid doesn't look quite right.

Really diggin' the look of the 630 without the Fast Track.

Almost like the MP Craft S1 from Japan...wish that club was available here.



...and the 630 sits square to 1* open...the picture makes it look closed, but it is most definitely not.

Driver looks great. I love my MP-600 : Very accurate and sneaky long.

Also like the idea of the no fast track option as all I've used my wrench for is to tighten the nuts really strong on the standard setting !!

Any idea what upgrade shafts might be offered ? Fubuki 73 would be nice or even a Kai'li

A few more details from the [url="http://golf.mizunoeurope.com/news/index.php?article=2010_01_12_MP_Woods_with_added_heat"]EU site[/url]. No specs on the Fubuki, but it looks like it's "made for Mizuno"; let's hope someone is able to digg up the exact specs, so we can compare it to the "regular" Fubuki Tour (with MDT???):
[b]
MP-630 FAST TRACK: [/b]Slightly open at address, with powerful pear shaped profile and thumping feedback, the MP-630 FAST TRACK inspires imagination from the tee. While designed to suit the eye of stronger players, the shallower design and 445cc size will attract a broad range of abilities. Fiery ball speeds ignited by a HOT METAL Ti9 face are converted into optimized yardage using Mizuno's FAST TRACK adjustable weight tracks. Two 8 gram sliding weights can be quickly re-located in 10 different points, creating a total of 45 finely tuned flight patterns. With weights set closer to the face, spin rates can be reduced for faster ball speeds, with a drop of around 400rpm achievable.
The ingenious system can also be quickly adjusted to create both a draw and fade bias. Weights set towards the toe positions, encourage the clubface to lag for a left to right flight. Conversely, weights moved into the heel allow the clubface to rotate for a right to left shape.
Masao Nagai, Director of R&D, "[i]The original FAST TRACK was primarily designed to impact sidespin and the lateral characteristics of ball flight. However we quickly realized that being able to adjust backspin was just as useful. We focused even more on this aspect with the new FAST TRACK – you can see by the track itself how far forward and back we can take weight from the face. The new system massively increases the potential of the MP-630 to convert extreme ball speeds into even bigger gains in driving distance[/i]."

• Loft: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 – Right hand only
• Standard Shaft: MRC Fubuki

[b]MP-630:[/b] Slightly open at address, with powerful pear shaped profile and thumping feedback, the MP-630 inspires imagination from the tee. While designed to suit the eye of stronger players, the shallower design, 445cc size and range of lofts will inspire a broad range of abilities. Sizzling ball speeds are generated by the HOT METAL 6-4Ti face, coupling the MP-630's shot-making prowess with explosive distances. A penetrating flight generated from the MP-630's multi-piece construction and low COG, ensure that the increases in ball speed are efficiently converted into additional yardage. The slightly open face is complemented by a neutral flight bias, giving powerful ball strikers the confidence to release through impact – without a tendency to hook.
Andy Kikidas, Tour Operations Manager, commented "[i]The MP-630 has a spectacular looking profile at address. It's set up just a little open, as better players want to guard against a hook. The spin rates are lower than any model we've worked with before – which means none of the HOT METAL's ball speed is wasted[/i]."
OPTIONS
• Loft: 9.5, 10.5, 12.0 – Right hand only
• Standard Shaft: MRC Fubuki

[b]MP TITANIUM Fairway[/b]: A stunning 'Tour Ready' fairway wood, designed on feedback collected by Mizuno's Tour Workshops and associated Tour Professionals. Compact and slightly open at address, the MP Titanium is best suited to consistent ball strikers, who prefer to work the ball in both directions. However, the MP Titanium's best trick is to create the illusion of being purely a shot shapers design. A HOT METAL Beta Ti face hidden within its 5 piece construction pushes COR to the USGA's maximum legal limit, giving the MP Titanium an unexpected sizzle on impact. An average ball speed increase of 7.3mph and improved average carry of 13.6 yards* over its predecessor suggest that crisp ball strikers will gain in both control and distance.
"[i]To generate the HOT METAL effect in such a small, workable clubhead, we had to switch to a 5 piece construction. Using a Beta Ti HOT METAL face meant that we could generate the fiery ball speeds not normally associated with a fairway wood. Those increased ball speeds, combined with a lower spin rates mean the MP Titanium has tested incredibly well amongst our tour players[/i]." David Llewellyn, R&D.* internal robot tests compared to Mizuno F-60
OPTIONS
• Loft: 13 (3+), 15 (3), 16.5 (4), 18 (5) – Right hand only
• Standard Shaft: MRC Fubuki

[b]MP CLK: [/b]A gem of a hybrid, suited to strong ball strikers looking to replace traditional long irons. Compact, with a 'tour-ready' square face and low profile the MP CLK offers something different in a wood type hybrid – forgiveness, without the loss of workability. A smooth drop down crown and strategic internal weighting place the CLK's sweet spot low on the face, reducing backspin and a ballooning flight. The low, shallow COG enables a variety of shotmaking, without sacrificing the forgiveness expected of a long iron replacement. A HOT METAL 1770 steel face and ultra low sweet spot means versatility is accompanied by an substantial increase in distance and carry (average ball speeds by 1.2 mph and average carry by 4.2 yards*) for stronger players able to benefit from reduced spin rates. *internal robot testing compared to CLK Fli-Hi.
"[i]Our tour players are now very open to the idea of long iron replacements – they just want to avoid anything with a tendency to hook – which most hybrids do. The new MP CLK gives them the forgiveness and carry advantages of a hybrid, but sits better to their eye and gives them the option to work the ball in both directions[/i]." Andy Kikidas, Tour Operations Manager.

• Loft: 17, 20, 23 – Right hand only
• Standard Shaft: MRC Fubuki

Looks like the "630 series" goes on sale in [url="http://www.mizuno.jp/catalog/category/1290090010/"]Japan[/url] on the 22nd. Only the standard -630 driver is pictured with the Fubuki shaft. Torque looks a bit on the high side to be a true Fubuki Tour. Here is me hoping I'm wrong and they'll update the specs to include a low torque tour version.
Both the EU link (see previous post) and the Japan link give access to more pictures.

I am most excited about the Titanium FW. I wonder if more companys will go this way. I know it was a 2-5 year fad back in the early 90's.

That driver looks dead s*** from that angle. Hopefully that's not actually how it'll sit at address cause it looks great otherwise.

It does look 8* closed in the next to last pic. I think it's just the angle or some lens effect. Im still not sure what the chanel thingie does....

not my cup of tea; do not like the look of it; too long front to back as it looks like its the trend on golf if you look at current driver models

I would prefer the mp 600 instead

From the pics @ address from the JP site, it seems to me that curve of the toe makes the driver look closed. Even more so than the 600. The 3w looks dead solid perfect however. Maybe a bit on the small side (137cc) but the looks alone make up for that.
