Mizuno MX-700 Driver Review
Allan, The Sand Trap
14 December 2010
Conclusion: I was useing a ft-iq driver for a while . This Mizuno driver is fantastic . The key to this driver seems to be a smooth swing , with a bit of lag . This thing will crush the ball . I play close to 20 rounds a month , and have a rotator cuff problem w/my right shoulder . If you can't swing as hard as you think you need to , this one will wok for you . And , the funny thing is , your buddies wont believe how far he drives go , with minimal effort .
Conclusion: Oh, and I forgot to mention that I compared this to several different and more expensive drivers, and found this to be the LONGEST and easiest to hit. I tried Cobra S2, Taylormade R9 and Burner Superfast, the Titleist 909 D2, Mizuno MP-630, Callaway FT-iQ and some Nike driver I can't remember right now. I have the 10,5 with the Exar Stiff shaft.
Conclusion: I bought this driver (fall 2010) and I'm loving it! I had the RAM FX-i before this and I couldn't believe how much better the MX-700 is. Just imagine it, I was a 36 handicap and the first time I played this driver I went to 33,5. I measured from the 150m poles that the longest drive (I could measure that round) was ~260meters. At one PAR5 I overshot the green with my second shot.
Conclusion: I had been away from regular golf for a while and started back up with a vengence. Driving was my number one issue to address. My irons came back first, then the short game, but I was a complete mess with my driver and 3 wood. A friend let me borrow his mx700 3 wood. I had instant success from the tee and fairway. I purchased a driver and instant success again on the range and the course. I am half of a year now into the driver, 3 wood, hybrid combo.
Conclusion: I am an older player, not very long off the tee, 220 to 240 when playing well. Changed from a Hogan 12 degree, then a Sumo 10.5 degree to this club. On average this one kills both of the others, it is more consistent, and averages longer, maybe 10 to 20 yards. Being the newest driver I have used it should be, and is, the best driver I have played.
Conclusion: To Blake, could not agree with you more sir. I recently got my 700 and found it to be near on uncontrollable on the range and on the course. I was half way through a round at the weekend and swapped it out for my father in law's shorter Diablo and was back hitting the fairways again. I didnt realise the shaft was longer than standard (a good inch i would say) and i just could not control it.
Conclusion: A cannon. I tested it against about 8 other drivers and bought it because it was the longest and straightest on the range. After the honeymoon phase, it turns over a little too easy, but that might be because of the set up. Seems like if I set up just a tough open, it goes forever. What looks square to my eye may be slightly closed, and then it hooks. My previous driver was a Cleveland Launcher 460. A good swing with the Mizuno goes 20 yards farther.
Conclusion: I'm a huge hitter at the best of times, but when i go wrong I hook. Found the solution with this club, yes it draws but with the combination of 9.5 loft which has no offset and a stiff voodo shaft well I think Ive just invented the worlds best club combination. Im a 6 handicapper and as one reviewer said all it takes is a little bit of lead, if youre brave enough to do so.
Conclusion: Great review. I was going to replace my Titleist 909 DComp stiff to same with a regular shaft. Even though the DComp was the best driver I have owned I decided to try the Mizuno. What a great driver, very similar look and feel as the DComp but much straighter - love it! First time I used it I missed only one fairway and that was by small margin. First time I have sold a driver and replaced it with a new one and come out in front $$. Bonus!
