Mizuno are back again in 2023 with their latest range of ST-G metals, said to blend both power and control to offer golfers with performance and versatility out on the course.
After gaining some traction on the professional tours with their woods over the last couple of years, it'll be interesting to see whether the new ST-G follows the same pattern and finds its way into the bags of staff players in the forthcoming season.
Mizuno ST-G Driver
The ST-G is a 440cc driver with a new Fast Track design, allowing for adjustability from a low-spin bombers to a fade or draw fixer, as well as just a stable compact driver.
The driver has been designed to optimise launch and spin rates, with the Cortech Chamber there to enhance ball speed.
Key features include:
- Cortech Chamber: A stainless steel weight with elastomeric TPU which takes stress from the clubface to create an extra source of energy. This produces a more solid, powerful feel at impact as well as moving the weight closer to the face for lower spin.
Max Convergent Fast Track: Two weights can be pushed to more extreme positions in the head, from ultra-low spin to mid-low spin.
Compact Profile: The 440cc head has a modern pear shape, which sits perfectly square in the neutral setting.
New Beta Rich Ti LFS: The drivers boasts a lighter, faster face material - 9% stronger than the previous driver - for a multi-thickness geometry, which produced an average 1.4mph ball speed improvement compared to the previous generation.
Expanded Carbon Toe Wrap: An extension of lightweight carbon in the toe section provides more opportunity for shot shape adjustability.
Tour Tested: A combination of the Cortech Chamber and internal tuning ribs create a more solid feel and sound at impact, regardless of the weight setting.
Quick Switch Hosel: Provides 4 degrees of adjustability to fine-tune the look at address and trajectory.
The Mizuno ST-G Driver is priced at an RRP of £549 and is available in 9.5 and 10.5 degrees in right-handed, and 9.5 degrees only in left-handed.
Mizuno ST-G Fairway Wood
The new ST-G Fairway Wood is a low spinning, Titanium power fairway which has been created as an option for Mizuno's faster-swinging tour players and solid ball strikers who are looking for a penetrating ball flight.
"The low spin fairway woods is a model that we've quietly been working on for several years - the Cortech Chamber made it a lot easier to achieve."
David Llwelleyn, Mizuno Director of R&D
Key features of the Mizuno ST-G Titanium Fairway Woods include:
Cortech Chamber - the missing piece: The stainless steel weight is encased in an elastomeric TPU to create more energy and move weight closer to the clubface for lower spin and a better sound and feel.
Full body Ti construction: The Ti-811 body with high-strength multi-thickness titanium face produces high ball speeds.
Ultra-low spin construction: This is created thanks to a combination of the Cortech Chamber, an 80g stainless steel sole plate, 8g stainless steel front screw and lightweight waffle crown.
Modern player's pear shape: An inviting, compact head shape which sits perfectly square at address.
Tour tested for sound: A combination of the Cortech Chamber and internal tuning ribs create a solid feel at impact.
Quick switch hosel: 4 degrees of adjustability to fine-tune address and trajectory.
Priced at £329, the Mizuno ST-G Fairway is available in 15 and 18 degrees in right-handed and 15 degrees only in left-handed.
