The Mizuno MP-600 driver uses weights that sit in a Fasttrack channel on the rear of the clubhead to allow you to modify the shape of shot.
They are adjusted by the use of an allan key supplied in a clever little pocket in the headcover and this is a relatively easy process.
There are six distinct locations for the weights giving 15 possible combinations as shown on the handy instruction card, but you can also fix the weights between these points for even more flexibility.
As you would expect you can create a draw or fade bias by putting the weights to the heel or toe respectively. There also several neutral positions which increase or reduce the spin on the ball for a higher or lower ball flight, which we thought was more useful.
So does the Mizuno MP-600 driver work? Yes but it is quite subtle. If you have a big fade then the draw setting is not going to cure it. However make a normal swing and you should get the shape of shot you require.
The head is very classy looking, sits very well behind the ball and, depending on where you have the weights, the sound is very good too. Performance wise length and forgiveness were in the ballpark you would expect in this class of club.
However make sure you only move the weights between rounds and not during a round as doing so will get you disqualified!

Mizuno MP-600 Driver - Product Details
The weights may not provide significant change to your ball. I use the weights to more or less balance the club head as if it were a softball/baseball bat. with that I get great consistency and don't give up any power. First day using it and I am still driving the ball 327 airtime. Stiff shaft will help and not having a monsterous over forgiving head helps me.
Outstanding driver at this point, hope it holds up
Looks: Good. Ball Flight: Great. Consistency: Great. Range: Excellent. Feel: Excellent. Sound: Great. Innovation: Wow!
I have played 3 rounds with this driver now and my confidence off the tee is growing by the minute. I have tried TaylorMade, Benross, Ping and Cobra drivers but could not hit them straight. But with this driver my drives are landing on the fairways at last. I would say that I am hitting my ball a few yards further as well. This is class - a great looking and easy to hit club. If you're having problems give it a go.
On address the Mizuno MP-600 driver looks great, however looks alone cannot legitimise quite a steep price tag. The FAST TRACK weights, set in the back of the head, do make the rear side of the club feel quite heavy. That aside once you have swung the MP-600 driver a few times you do acclimatise to this. Moving the weights around does not change the flight of the ball that considerably, was I to buy this club I would probably leave them set at ‘2’ and ‘5’ for normal flight. Also, the low COG in this club was not evident as while the ball did have quite a penetrating flight it was not a terribly high one. For me, the influence the technology has on the ball flight does not merit the price of purchase. There are better drivers out there.
With the Mizuno MP-600 9.5 degree Loft, weights in the 3 & 4 position, I gain 20 yards of run out due to the lower spin rate. Now that makes my day.
The Mizuno MP-600 driver looks good and sits behind the ball well, but the fancy weight adjustment device doesn't seem to do much. The weights are easy to move around, but there didn't seem to be any difference in the flight of the ball depending on where you had the weights positioned. I seemed to get a low fade with every shot. Not for me.
