Is this Mizuno’s new driver?

Fresh off the heels of Mizuno’s launch of its new MP-18 irons, S18 wedges, and CLK hybrids in the U.S., a photo of a new GT-180 driver leaked on Instagram. The user, MSTGolf, is a retailer based in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam. That raises the question, “Will this driver be released in the U.S., or is it a club for the Asian market?

Mizuno hasn’t offered any details about the driver to this point, but there’s some chatter about potential launch dates and another new driver from the company in our forums. See what GolfWRX Members are saying.

    • So what you really want is weight adjustment in all three axes — X-Y-Z.
      A driver with all those weights would mean there are 3^2 or 9 possible combinations.
      How would you do that, trial and error and error and error?

  1. I look forward to the day when we don’t feel the need for gizmos all over the bottom of a driver. Ping has the right idea make different drivers that fit what you want to do and keep it clean and simple. I don’t really think sliding weights will save a bad swing anyway.
    If this driver was made to fit in with the MP-18 irons it misses the mark for me it looks out of place with the classic looking irons.

    • Ping dont have it right…..3 different drivers = 3 times the development costs and production moulds. Adjustability still the way to go. Its not designed to be a MP driver…..

      • There’s only so much you can do with sliding weights, I’d imagine you’d be equally happy with a well fit Ping driver that are specifically designed to do what they do.

        • im assuming his point was that the cost for ping to R&D, list and manufacture 3 different drivers is greater than a single driver that can do most if not all functions the 3 ping drivers do.

    • The driver head hits the ball but that’s about it. It’s the swing that creates the speed to send the head into the ball. No swing speed, no length no matter what kind or brand of driver head. Jeez it’s simple golf science.

      • so you should learn to swing that individual driver rather than adjust your driver to adapt to your specific swing mechanics? you do realize that Pro’s have had their clubs adjusted for years prior to all the weight and loft adjustments by way of hotmelt, loft and lie hosel bending, this is the manufactures way of bringing these adjustments to the masses so they can swing a club that better suits their swing mechanics. really the only argument is that most people using these drivers are not set up to maximize performance but at least they have the opportunity to do so.
