And people say Mizuno can only make irons...

I’ve been gaming the ST180 driver and ST190 3 wood, and I just have to say that in addition to looking amazing, they are absolute WEAPONS!  Best woods I have ever hit!

Yes, is it true. Took a while, but the St180 and St190 are the real deal. The hybrids are great now too. For a while it was hard to envision running Mizuno throughout the bag. But that is no longer the case.

Had the ST190 and it was fantastic! 

The fact they included the Atmos Tour Spec as a stock offering was a great bargain. I have hit the ST200 and they are just as good, and they are offering the Dimana Limited as a stock offering. I actually just ordered the new CLK hybrid and a no charge option for the hybrid shaft was the Tensei Pro Blue 80 or White 90... Ended up with the TX 80

ST 200 is definitely a driver I would like to test. Great to hear the more recent driver lines from Mizuno are performing well for you guys.

I get good ball speed from the ST190 driver, but am suffering from gear effect on heel side misses.  GIven I'm seeing some out-to-in path already, the gear effect miss makes the driver unplayable.  Back to the K15.

Rick Sheils was replacing his driver this season, and his choices came down to the Cobra Speedzone Extreme or the Mizuno ST200.  So clearly Mizuno is upping their game when it comes to woods!  Rick made the wrong choice with the Cobra, obviously.

I'm all in on the Mizuno driver/wood/hybrid.  Got fit for the ST200G driver with Diamana White stiff shaft.  Added the ST200 Tour Spoon 3 with the same shaft.  Working on consistency with the driver (holdover issue from my previous driver), but the 3 wood I hit almost as far.  Great feeling club.  And the CLK hybrid 3 (Speeder stiff) also great.  Love how they play and how they look.

I saw that too and thought the exact same thing.  He should have gone with the Mizuno, I thought he hit more consistent shots with it.

I really love the blue of the st180s... I am leaning towards them purely because of the added color. 

The ST180 was a crazy good low spin driver... I too liked the blue but understand that switching to the black more people would look at it

I have both the ST180 and ST190 as well as the JPX850. Mizuno has always made good drivers. It's just the money that keeps the exposure down.

Do they sound completely different?

For sure. The ST180 rings like a bell (with hard balls) and the 190 is much quieter. I even hotmelted the 180 and it's still loud. I played the 180- yesterday and it made my eyes water a couple of times. Good results though!

The ST200G is my second favorite driver I've hit in this current cycle and maybe #4 all time for me. The Mizuno metalwoods are all very very good.

I have an ST180 driver that I bought because I was hitting it so straight with the Tensei blue 60g shaft.  I had looked for a matching 3W but never found one with a shaft that looked similar.  I recently had a demo/fit with a Ping 3W and the fitter advised I use their 75g s shaft and told me the 60g stiff shaft in my current 3W was too light for my swing.  I was really wanting to try a new Mizuno but couldn't find one in my area so have taken a bit of a gamble when I came across an ST190TS with a similar shaft and bought it.  Hopefully I got it right
