MIZUNO Golf have announced the arrival of the next generation of their ST Series of metal woods.
Available in Malaysia from this week, the clubs represent the culmination of the Japan company’s three-year, rapid-fire driver development project.
Preceded by the acclaimed ST190 and ST200, Mizuno’s first drivers widely played by their global Tour staff, the new ST-Z and ST-X line uses Mizuno’s SAT2041 Beta Ti face and carbon construction technology to deliver both better ball speeds and a dense, “satisfying” sensation at impact.
“Most of our ST200 Tour feedback was on the sensory side, a desire for a sound our players generally described as solid or dense, ” said Mizuno’s Chris Voshall. “We spent a whole year working on improving feedback, hand in hand with releasing the additional ball speed we knew was still left in our SAT2041 Beta Ti face.”
SAT2041 stands for super/ alloy/ titanium/ 20% vanadium/ 4% aluminium/ 1% Sn and it generously offers 17% more tensile strength and 8% more flexibility than traditional 6-4Ti.
The ST-Z driver was designed with better stability and a low-spin efficiency. It has a balanced toe/heel carbon composite construction with a deep central back weight for that spin efficiency and straight-line ball flight.
The ST-X driver features a draw-biased carbon composite construction, aided by a heel side sole weight. Like the ST-Z, it is built upon the second generation of Mizuno’s Forged SAT2041 Beta Ti face to produce better ball speeds and consistent performance over time.
Offering high levels of stability and low spin efficiency, the ST-Z fairway woods offer a throwback profile, with curves for the purist and performance for the pragmatist. Mizuno’s third generation MAS1C face is their most powerful to date.
The ST-Z fairway woods provide a balanced package of low spin performance and stability. Both the 3 and 5-woods come with an adjustable, quick switch hosel, offering four degrees of loft and face angle adjustability.
These ST-Z and ST-X line of woods can now be tested at a Mizuno Swing DNA fitter.
The ST-Z and ST-X driver comes with price tag of RM1,790, the ST-Z fairway wood RM1,190 and the ST-Z utility RM1,090.
