AMPLIFIED WAVE SOLE
The ST180 is the first Mizuno driver to feature Wave sole technology, with the ST180’s Wave sole committing every available gram of weight low and towards the face - dropping spin rates for even the fastest, downward ball-strikers. The Amplified Wave sole, originally engineered in Mizuno’s fairway woods, contracts and expands to increase the energy imparted to the ball for elevated ball speeds, while also pushing weight forward to vastly reduce spin rates.
EFFICIENT LOW SPIN DESIGN
An Internal Waffle Crown saves weight to be reallocated low and forward.
QUICK SWITCH ADJUSTABLE HOSEL
Allows 4 degrees of loft adjustment and 3 degrees of lie adjustment to match your unique launch and visual preference.
“This was the biggest shock we’ve had in testing. The spin rate and ball speed of this driver caught everybody out. The ST180 comes off so fast, with so little spin – it’s going to make a lot of good players question what they really need in a driver” Jeff Cook, PGA Tour Manager
MORE FROM MIZUNO:
Mizuno engineers are also keen to point out that the brand’s approach to ‘bulge and roll’ is also current, if rarely discussed. R&D Director David Llewellyn puts it simply: “We’ve been compensating for golfers’ regular mishit patterns for years by giving the toe and heel sides of the face a bit more bulge than the centre of the face. This counteracts the greater amount of gear effect that occurs further from the face’s centre, thus giving the ball the appropriate amount of side spin to curve back to the centre. It’s a big topic of conversation now – but not something we've advertised. Just one of those design increments that happens over time.”
On the subject of how golfers should choose between GT180 and ST180, Llewellyn points to personality over ability. "Most players like to keep things as uncomplicated as possible - to stand there and give the ball a rip. The ST180 is for them. Then you have players who enjoy the process of dialing in a driver and getting it optimised to the yard - that's the GT180. Everything else is very similar - playability, ball speed. Chose a model based on your attitude to the game - it's not about ability."
