The Verdict: The gray-matte finish is un-Mizuno-like, but everything else is familiar. The company remains true to its better-player heritage by using the narrow sole design preferred by Mizuno staff players Luke Donald and Chris Wood. The clean, compact appearance at address strikes the right balance, and the one-piece, carbon-steel forging provides a syrupy feel. Forgiveness is not overlooked. Weight is pushed to the perimeter for added stability.
