All-new 2020 Mizuno M-Craft putters

Published

on

For the first time in a long time, Mizuno is giving golfers the opportunity to play Mizuno clubs entirely from top to bottom in their sets with the reintroduction of a putter line for 2020—the Mizuno M-Craft.

Like mentioned off the top, it’s been a while since you’ve been able to find a Mizuno putter in North America, and the last time you could, the Mizuno name didn’t stand alone. At one point in time, Mizuno has worked with some great putter designers, from Scotty Cameron (yes, that Scotty Cameron), to T.P Mills, and Bettinardi. Each line was considered a success but never had the mass appeal or caught on as anyone had hoped.

Cameron moved on to Titleist to become the juggernaut he is today, T.P Mills went back to focusing on smaller runs, and Bettinardi took the step and successfully branched out under their own singular brand after their partnership agreement ended. All were great products, but Mizuno felt now was the time to go all-in on creating a classic line of putters to cater to the Mizuno Player.

Three Putters, One Story

The M-Craft Putter Line consists of Mizuno designers putting their own take on three classic head styles; The Anser, slant-neck, and face-balanced mid-mallet. Sticking with refining those classic shapes will garner the most eyes and improve the likelihood of golfers to try it out.

Mizuno M-CRAFT I – Slant Neck

Mizuno M-Craft II – Anser Style

M-CRAFT III – Mid Mallet

They will also come in 3 different finish options too; Satin Chrome, Mizuno Blue, & Black.

Construction & Technology

Mizuno irons are known for their classic feel, and they are bringing the same philosophy of design to the M-Craft Putters. Milled from solid blocks of forged 1025 Steel, the faces are deeper milled to produce a soft yet solid sound at impact.

The technology story behind the putters is straight forward and that’s okay because we’re talking about a milled putter and not a multi-material 460cc driver after all. There is head weight adjustability, and its something Mizuno is very excited about since unlike other putter companies, the M-Craft kit comes completely stock with any putter. This gives the golfer the opportunity to fine-tune head weight as well as causing slight changes to toe hang.

The final touches are a Lamkin Deep Etched Grip, and a cover that takes its cues from the classic Mizuno lineage of colors, for a trip down design memory lane.

The Mizuno M-Craft putters will be $299.99, and are available for pre-order January 21st, and will be found at retail locations starting February 14.

    I am shocked no one came into this comment section and say it looks like a PING or Odyssey just like every other club that comes out.

    These look great and they feel terrific. The feel of the putt is soft but reacts off the putter just right. I am getting the III shortly.

      Since the Scotty Cameron putters are $400, perhaps the answer is “why not?” 🙂

    Toe hang still dominantly influenced by hosel placement that orients the shaft relative to heel-to-toe alignment..

    I NEVER thought I would putt with something from Mizuno. If the feel is anything comparable to the irons, I’m in.

      Put your money where your mouth is: I will buy 6 of the Anser style from you in 9 months for $50 each – you’ll make $20 profit on each one!

    Wow, minimal stamping, clean face, and adjustable weights included… some other folks need to TAKE NOTES! Very excited to see how these feel. Hopefully my local golf shop gets these. If anything, that headcover will be in my bag.

    I can’t wait. I’ll be putting a nice blue one in my bag. I loved the old Mizuno Carbon line by Bettinardi. These look better.

    Is it just me or are the bumpers uneven? On the M-1 the toe bumper looks thicker. Then on the M-2 the heel bumper looks thicker.

      No I think you’re quite right.

      On a properly designed putter, that is often the case.
      The toe features are generally larger than the heel features, otherwise, at address is looks like the heel is bigger than the toe (based on perspective).
