Mizuno has announced the next generation of its ST Driver series with the launch of the ST-G 220, designed to deliver ultimate adjustability and ball speed and building on the success of the ST-Z and ST-X drivers.
Featuring the SAT2041 Beta Ti face and a 'complex' carbon construction, the driver produces a dense feel at impact and has been designed for more precision from the fitting process.
The ST-G 220 has shorter lateral weight tracks which allows for a new centre/back weight port. With a total of three tracks and two moveable weights, the ST-G can go from a low-spinning driver built for distance to a more playable mid-spin option, with fade and draw bias in both.
Mizuno says that, traditionally, drivers have been more effective at delivering only low spin or fade/draw adjustability but the ST-G 220 is designed to do both. The driver is set up to deliver more from off-centre strikes, as well as providing consistent feedback across the different weight positions.
The ST-G 220 has so much more effective movement of weight along both the X and Z axis. We can set it to be very low spin, a more playable mid spin, heavily fade or draw biased and just about anything in-between.

Additional Features and Benefits
- Modern Player's Profile: Deeper faced, shorter back to front but using the full capacity 460cc head size.
New multi-thickness Cortech Face: Refined to maximise the return from Mizuno's Beta Ti face. Ball speeds most noticeably improved low on the clubface.
New dual weight center slot: Allows two central back weights for deeper CG capability - higher stability, launch and spin.
Greater draw/fade bias: Increased separation between lateral weight tracks.
Consistently solid feedback: A tighter range of feel and sound across the weight settings.
Quick Switch Adjustability: 4 degrees of loft adjustability (7-11 degrees) to fine-tune look and trajectory.
Optimised Wave Sole: Delivers an additional contribution to ball speed from low on the clubface.
Like the ST-Z and ST-X, the new ST-G 220 also features the SAT2041 Beta Ti face which offers 17% more tensile strength and 8% more flexibility than a traditional 6-4Ti face.
The driver is priced at £449 and will be available at retail from October.
