Conclusion: This model is a few years old (2010). As driver technology hasn't changed much in as many years, outside of adaptability, this one keeps up with the rest. The black finish and classic wood design welcomes an exemplary level of aggression and ability to shape shots. The 445 cc head is very controllable and face thickness varies to keep in compliance with minimizing trampoline effect.
Summary: Won't say the this driver will add 50 yards off the tee but I will say that it will provide more control, keeping the ball in the fairway thus makeing it seem like you've added extra yards. Don't get me wrong the Mizuno will still slice/hook if you oversing but if you're careful it will go straight. Wanted to try a lower lofted club, 9.5 vs 10.5, along with a better shaft and this is it. Bought the club used and I'd rate it a 9+ out of ten.
Summary: I purchased this driver as more of an experiment than anything else. It did not disappoint as I found drives seem to shoot off of the face, carry is nice and long, and the feel is typical Mizuno. Pros: - Driver has a great feel - Shaft is solid - not typical OEM version - Classic style very appealing at address - Great distance - Easy to hit Cons: - Muffled sound at impact - Shaft color is a bright white - Head is not max size at only 445cc Performance: This driver...
Summary: I haven't had the opportunity to hit this club yet due to snow on the ground. I bought it primarily because of the fuboki shaft. I already have 2 mizuno drivers with different lofts that I use depending on the type of course I am playing.
Summary: This club is LONG and Straight. I usually fight the LEFTS. This club has a nice Square to Slightly open apperence at address. Stock shaft is a FUBUKI 63 which is perfect with this clubhead. Mid -Launch with Low spin. A must try for anyone who hits the occasional Hard Hook.
Summary: Very solid Driver, quality club, just the trajectory is a little low for me, maybe would of have been better if I bought a 10.5 not a 9.5 which is what I normally use. The club when striked on the screws just seems to let the ball just escalade into the air just like the pros. Very nice feeling when hit on the screws, but thats most clubs anyways.
A well made club that added distance to my drives.

Summary: I bought this driver because I was the only person in my golf group using an "old fashioned" small headed driver, and I really like the Mizuno 7 wood that I carry. It took me awhile to get used to the new driver, but I like it now. I do hit it a little further. It is a 10.5 loft and goes higher than my old 9.5 loft - which I use when I need to keep the ball low.
Summary: Nice club..........Great shaft. Don't hit it as far, but control is much better, Might lose 4 or 5 yards, but easy to hit and much easier to control. I have 10.5 stiff Fubuki Rayon shaft and it's very nice.
