For me, Mizuno has always had the aura of high end clubs that I can’t hit. Maybe that’s because when I played with guys that had them, they were kicking my butt.
But Mizuno has been making some highly rated game improvement clubs in recent years, among them the MX series of clubs.
The MX-500 Driver builds on the MX Game improvement series, offering “high launch trajectory, optimum spin rates, and maximum ball speed.” It made the Golf Digest 2006 Hot List.
The technology that drives this begins with a graphite toe insert, a graphite crown and a perimeter weight slot, allowing Mizuno to distribute weight around the club head, and positioning the CG low and deep in the head. Six different CORTECH face areas generate high initial ball velocity for greater distance X-Sole design for solid feel and sound. The head ofers the maximum allowable USGA 460cc volume.
The heads come mounted on Mizuno’s new Exsar® 50 Graphite shafts.
