(4) Testers Wanted



Mizuno ST 180 Drivers



As Peter Wolfe once said - don't touch the knobs, 'cause I think we're gonna have some fun with this one!


Everyone loves Mizuno irons, that's for certain. But when the topic of Mizuno drivers comes up, even the most avid of golfers scratch their heads and turn to the Big 5. 


But this year's MGS Most Wanted Testing may have changed all that.


attachicon.gifMizuno ST 180 -2.jpg




Mizuno's new ST 180 surprised the field this year, finishing 4th overall. What's more, the ST 180 finished tied for 2nd for Swing Speeds over 105 mph, and tied for 1st for 90-105 swing speeds.


Do we have your attention now?


That's how the ST 180 performed for us, but as always, we want to know how it performs for you, the real live, avid golfer. 


We're looking for four of you to test, review and keep a new Mizuno ST 180 driver, complete with your choice of any of Mizzy's  no-upcharge shaft options. 


I know we have your attention now!




This review opportunity is open to any avid golfer in the US or Canada. 


How To Apply:


We take our testing very seriously here at MGS. In exchange for the driver, we're going to ask for a full two-month commitment, including range testing and on-course testing. We'll provide you with a detailed template to help you write your two-part review, and we'll ask that you be available on the Forum to answer questions and share your journey with golfers from all over the world. 


But most of all, we want your honest opinion. 


If you're up for it, then in this thread (and this thread only!!), please tell us the following:


First name/home state or province

Current driver/shaft combo

Swing speed/handicap

Preferred ST 180 loft/shaft (check the Mizzy website here)


Again, apply ONLY in this thread!  We'll be announcing the testers in this forum next week, so please check back regularly to see if you're one of the chosen few!


Good luck!!
