Mizuno St200 Driver Review

Performance

All it takes to be an elite driver comes down to ball speed. Your goal is to maximise ball speed and save as much time as possible when your strike is poor. Both of these metrics are not met by the Mizuno ST200.

The ST200 is a good driver, but it’s not great. It’s fine. It’s fine. The ST200, despite being released by three MAVRIK driver (reviews here), the Tour Edge Exotics EXS 220- (review hier), and still having the PINGG410 Plus on its shelf (review hier), is not a convincing option.

Although the ST200 driver does not have a great track record in ball speed preservation, its spin and launch are impressive. My drives were sent in the same direction with strong ball flights, even when strikes weren’t optimal.

The most disappointing aspect of the Mizuno ST200 golf club is its lackluster selections for shaft options. Mizuno does not offer any other brands with more than three shaft options. Diamana Red is your choice if you are looking for regular flex. The Diamana Blue S+ is for you if you prefer stiffness. Step up.

Would I Use It?

Mizuno drivers. It performs great and looks amazing.

You have to admit, before I put the headcover on it I wasn’t sure if ST200 would compete with TaylorMade Callaway Ping Titleist.

I would love to be the ST200G-Driver.

Mizuno ST200 Driver Pros Looks fantastic Plenty of forgiveness Very reasonable price point Mizuno ST200 Driver Cons Higher spin may put some people off Slightly tinny sound No 0.5 degree loft settings Mizuno ST200G Driver Pros Looks fantastic Adjustability is easy to understand and use Perfect for players looking to lower spin rates Mizuno ST200G Driver Cons A touch too loud Slightly more expensive than the standard model If you enjoyed this, you may also like:

Mizuno St200 Driver Review

Club Fitter Mizuno irons are a trademark of Club Fitter Mizuno. More specifically the way their irons feel. Tour pros “free agents” play their irons. They don’t need club contracts and can play whatever they like. It’s flattering for a club manufacturer to see a pro tour choose their product because of its feel and performance, and not because they get paid. Mizuno makes the “Tour Ready Irons” every year. Mizuno’s ST200 series, this is their new driver line.

New 2020 Mizuno drivers are now the ST200, ST200G, and ST200X. Mizuno has a patented phrase that says “Nothing tastes like a Mizuno” and this is evident in the looks, sounds, and feelings of all of these drivers. Now the question remains: Can these new drivers live up to the Tour Ready standard of their irons? It is clear that I am able to confirm with confidence that the drivers do meet that standard. Further in this review, you’ll find the data necessary to back this up.

You can choose from three styles of heads to allow the ST200 line cover many playing levels and different ball flight options. Low spin forgiveness is possible with the super-stable ST200 mid/low spin head. The ST200 is a Tour Ready product. It features a Beta rich, forged Ti face that is 17% more powerful than their previous driver line the ST190. An 11.6g weight backweight stabilizes the head and allows you to adjust the loft to a maximum of 4 degrees. The ST200G boasts the same Beta rich forged Ti face, which is extremely fast yet provides a very soft/lively feeling. What the ST200G offers compared to the standard ST200 is 2 adjustable weight tracks that help optimize spin from mid to ultra low. Finally, the ST200X is a high launching draw bias driver. A fixed heel weight, an upright lie angle (compared with the other models), and the Beta rich forged Ti Ti face make the ST200X ideal for players looking for high ball speed and a draw ball flight. Carbon composite crowns allow for low launch and spin thanks to the low CG (Center of Gravity), of the ST200G ST200G ST200X.

Mizuno’s ST190 driver is a strong driver. The proper launch conditions and ball speed are what I want to see. I was only able to test the ST200 and ST200G. However, the ST200X is still not available for me to try. Atmos Black Tour Spec 6X shaft was what I used. I used the 9*ST00G to turn down to 7*, while the 9.5*ST200 to turn down to 7.5*. I tend to be a higher spin player, so having the lofts so low helps optimize my launch conditions and gives these drivers the best chance to perform for me. Each driver was responsible for 6 of my shots. Here is the data:

Driver Club Headspeed Ball Speed Speed Launch Angle Spin Rate

ST190 16.2 mph 168.1 mph 13.1*2625 rpm 289.5Yds

ST200 12.7 mph 170.0mph 112.6* 2503 RPM 292.5 yds

Mizuno St200 Driver Review, Photos And More: Clubtest 2020

ClubTest 2020 saw us test and review 28 drivers in order to help you choose the best one. Here are the results of the Mizuno ST200 driver.

Price: $400 / BUY NOW Lofts: 9.5deg, 10.5deg Our take: The Beta Rich Forged Titanium face is 17 percent stronger and maintains its performance longer than traditional materials. The compacted Wave Solle resulted in a weight savings of 11.6 grams. This allows for an additional weight of forgiveness and spin. The adjustable-weight ST200G is also available. Higher-level players will love the flatter crowns, and greater lie angles.

ClubTester’s Take (8-hdcp: “Classic looks combined new-age tech. The result is outstanding!

Robot’s take: A ball speed winner for mid swing speed players.
