When designing the MX-560 driver the boffins at Mizuno discovered that the geometry of some drivers sacrificed distance in their quest for maximum MOI.

They came up with the shape of the Mizuno MX-560 driver that maximizes up/down and toe/heel MOI without a reduction in ball speeds and driving distances.

We found that this club was certainly very easy to hit and went higher than the MP600, even if it was a little bit on the noisy side for our taste.

Better players will like the lower lofts of the MX-560 with the square face alignment, whereas the higher lofts at 10 and a half degrees upwards have a slightly closed face for a bit more forgiveness.

Brilliant driver and very forgiving.

What a noise! You need ear plugs to hit the Mizuno MX-560 driver. It is definitely for the high handicapper, as the ball just zooms up into the air. If you struggle to get the ball up in the air then this club will do it for you. Easy to hit with a head that looks massive. The club doesn't seem to weigh anything, but when you hit the ball the noise isn't the best. Sounds cheap and tinny.
