Official Mizuno MP-630 Drivers, Fairway and Hybrid Pictures

Published

on

It’s always nice to be among the first to show you the new stuff and just before the PGA Merchanise Show, here are the Official Pics from Mizuno – andhere’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.

Hyperbole aside, golfers everywhere will be wondering if Mizuno can build on the successes of the MP-600 and MX-700 and in the MP-630 create a series of woods that are as highly regarded as their irons.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
