Mizuno Long Game - 2023 Forum Review

Based on the messaging with Bryan our orders were submitted somewhere around July 3rd, right? No one is going to feel sorry for us but by getting involved in this test I went from loving my driver to now desperately wanting to replace it with this new tech. I have watched like 10+ Mizuno STZ driver review videos and I can't wait to get it in my hands. And I really like the headcover too, as stupid as that might sound. Typically I don't keep or use stock headcovers but that Mizuno headcover is amazing looking.

Hey from the sounds of it the ST-230 line comes with a wrench and I too like the headcover so already the Mizuno has a couple points over my Paradym. I was a little disappointed with Callaway for a $600 driver I expected the wrench to be included and I just couldn’t get behind that fake leather looking head cover. Granted my dog replica takes precedence as the main head cover but looks hold some value. The numbers and on course performance will obviously be the true test, though.

I received a wrench with each club. BTW, the wrenches I think are universal if you have one from another club. I have a number of Callaway, Ping, and now Mizuno wrenches and I just use the one within reach when I get a feeling a change is needed.

Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff (set at 10 degrees with the movable weight in the center}

FW: Callaway Epic 3,5, heaven wood w/ regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in heaven wood, all three set at neutral plus 1 degree)

Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 (4 set at neutral plus 1 degree and 6 and 7 set at neutral minus 1 degree for gapping purposes)

Irons: Callaway Rogue ST Max 8, 9, PW 

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58

Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years)

Yea I kept my Taylormade and cobra wrench but for me from a consumer standpoint if I spend $600 on a driver I’d expect a wrench to be included

A lot of OEMs are no longer including wrenches for the exact reason you just mentioned. Many golfers have multiple ones already.

I would think this would be annoying for newer golfers who want to upgrade to a new driver for the first time and don’t have wrenches laying around. If the price point was where they were a couple product cycles ago I could maybe understand.

I agree. Should be some sort of way to indicate that you don't have one for a $600 club. Callaway pre-owned sells them for $9.99 so it isn't much of an expense to send one with a club. I wonder if the pro shops where I play have one? Would at least be an alternative but one would be stuck on that setting for the round. I keep one in the bag for mid round corrections or just if I feel like it. Yes, I know that's not allowed! On the golf balance scale, challenge or fun? I have an extra ounce on fun.

Well bad news for the Mizunos. Played 18 today and was striping the ball off the tee. 11/14 fairways average distance of 302 yards with a nice little butter fade. Now wedges and scoring were a different story but the woods and top end of the bag was amazing. Hoping they get here soon.

Yeah my HyWood was absolutely nails for me last night and is back in my good graces. The Mizuno fairway has its work cut out for it. 

I will say I’m getting more interested in the 4h - I had a few occasions recently where that would have been the perfect yardage club. Hope they arrive soon as well.  Getting jealous of other testers right now for sure!!

I've been obsessively checking the UPS website 2-3 times per day. I just logged in for my morning check and saw the tracking info. I'm excited to say the least. 10lb shipping weight so I'm hopeful that's all 3 clubs. 

This will give me a few days to dial them in at the range and then use them for my round Saturday morning. I'll be playing with my brother, his BIL, and one of their good friends - all guys who I play with a lot and am very familiar with their games. I'll be sure to get them in their hands as well to see what they think about them.

No email here either but I did come to this thread to say that I am starting week 7 of waiting but pumped for you @russtopherb! You have the Kai'li Blue shaft coming with your driver right? I am in the LIN-Q Red so hopefully that is not contributing to my wait. I am excited for all of them and ready to get on the sim and the course ASAP.

I think I might be the only one that ordered the hzrdus smoke shafts.. I really hope mine weren’t the cause of the delay. But on a better note it looks like we have a really diverse selection in shaft profiles which will be really cool for the tests/reviews!

I will freely admit I have an atypical shaft profile that I seek out. I like a *whippy* shaft ever since I got into @azstu324's "otto-phlex" world. Basically any shaft with torque at 5.0 or higher and weighing in around 45-55g feels awesome to me. The only thing that I did change this time (and it worked in the fitting at least) was to move from a regular flex to a stiff flex. At 108 mph SS most fitters wouldn't even let me try a senior or regular shaft. I find the torque and "profile" of the shaft is more important than the actual flex...if that makes sense. 

I will say, I love my current shaft which is a Mitsubishi Chemical VANQUISH shaft in a regular flex. If the testing goes well and the Mizuno is as good or better than the Cobra, I am probably going to flip the adapter on my VANQUISH to a Mizuno adapter (though I am a little scared to do so since the VANQUISH shaft is not cheap).

I had the same thought but with my paradym. If I’m seeing great results with the mizuno I want to try and get a hzrdus smoke black or ventus velo black to put in my paradym to see if the shaft profile helps in that driver and I can get a true comparison. I’ve had some of the longest drives of my career with the paradym but my dispersion has been a little off with the ventus blue 7s

Might have to just go ahead and start pretending to be sick now so enough people at work see me and don't question when I am out for the rest of the week. Mine is also 10 lbs which is encouraging that it will all be in there.

I find the torque and "profile" of the shaft is more important than the actual flex...if that makes sense. 

Total sense. Especially when there is no authoritative rule for shaft flex by all the companies. 

Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff (set at 10 degrees with the movable weight in the center}

FW: Callaway Epic 3,5, heaven wood w/ regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in heaven wood, all three set at neutral plus 1 degree)

Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 (4 set at neutral plus 1 degree and 6 and 7 set at neutral minus 1 degree for gapping purposes)

Irons: Callaway Rogue ST Max 8, 9, PW 

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58

Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years)

yup, that looks highly contagious.  You should likely take the next few days off too.

 

 

Providing a second opinion and I work in healthcare (not a doc but whatever), that looks like the highly contagious virus that goes around during the warmer months known as mygolfspytesteritous. Very serious ailment, only known cure is to dive deep into golf equipment analysis and usage.

Literally following the truck on a live google map right now. It is in my neighborhood. Does this count as stalking? Feels like stalking...

On another note, trying to decide where I can take the best pictures. I have been using my kitchen island but the shadows are a problem. I am thinking natural light is best but CAN I wait until tomorrow morning to take pictures.....

I was going to do that, too, with the Cobra Challenge. 0% success rate 😂

I believe there is a particularly virulent Titleist strain that just popped up this week…

You’re correct, really rough one to pull through. Most stay out of work up to four weeks and spend the majority of their time in fresh air on well manicured grounds. Seems to cure it every time I’ve seen it.
