The Verdict: The size clearly reveals the ST180 to be the more forgiving of Mizuno's two new drivers. But there's a problem with some large drivers: Their higher-than-ideal center of gravity can create too much distance-sapping ball spin. So how does Mizuno get low spin and forgiveness? The internal weighting is concentrated low because of a deep weight pad in the back, a thin crown that features an internal waffle pattern and a wave sole that puts more material down low. The distance that comes with all of this forgiveness is a superplastic titanium alloy (strong and resiliently flexible) that can be made selectively thinner.
Loft: Two models with adjustable hosels (7-5-11.5 degrees and 10.5-14.5 degrees).
Street Price: $400

    The shape is just right. Good distance and easy to control the spin.
  • mid-Handicapper
    It's easy to position at address. I really like the proportions. Smooth through impact.
  • high-Handicapper
    This blue is soothing, calm. The soleplate looks like it helps you get more ball speed.
