SPOTTED: Mizuno ST190 and ST190G drivers

Published

on

Three Mizuno drivers have recently been added to the USGA Conforming Clubs list: Mizuno ST190 (9.5 degrees), ST190 HL (10.5 degrees) and ST190G. While the image links are currently unavailable on the USGA website, the ST180 and ST190G drivers have been spotted in person at the British Masters.

Judging from the photos, both drivers have Mizuno’s familiar Wave Technology — an accordion-like speed channel seen in the ST180 drivers — and “SP700 Coretech” faces.

The ST190 looks to have a fixed weight in the rear portion of the sole, while the ST190G has a “Fast Track Technology” sliding weight in the heel of the sole; judging by the labeling, that track will help golfers adjust between draw and fade trajectory biases. Surely, the Mizuno ST190 HL was not spotted out at the British Masters because one would assume it’s a “High Launch” product made for those who need more launch; that tends to be higher handicaps rather than Tour pros.

The driver being tested above looks to be equipped with a popular Mitsubishi Tensei Orange shaft. Compared to the ST180 drivers, it’s also clear Mizuno is going away from the blue color scheme to a glossy black look.

Mizuno is not commenting on details/tech at the time, so for now we are left to speculate on the drivers.

      How about WAVE Technology, you know, like the waves of the sole. I have the 180 and it is good, and very calming. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm POW.

    SP700 face is suppose to be made of some high end material other OEM’s use to but stop using because it’s too expensive.

    I’ve never hit a Mizuno driver (or seen one in person actually) but I think going with the black crown has to make it look better at address. I know its just a visual thing and but a blue head is a bit aggressive even if blue is Mizuno’s color scheme.

    Interested to hear more though.

    Mizuno drivers are so underrated. Just try one I’m sure you’ll be surprised. I went to a driver fitting, tried Callaway, TaylorMade, Ping, and others. The Mizuno ST-180 out performed all of them. Superb.

    Wish they would try and make their sliding weights semi good looking instead of just slapping a hunk of metal and a screw together.

    Mizuno rep just visited my golf shop with these drivers today. They will be unveiled at the PGA show in Orlando. Stock shaft will be the Atmos but are saying no upcharge for any shaft they offer. They have gone away from blue, and they look really good.
