Mizuno on track with new ST-G 220 driver – Golf News



Mizuno has announced the launch of its new ST-G 220 driver, which will be the latest generation of the ST Series, building on the success of the ST-Z and ST-X and featuring the SAT2041 Beta Ti face and complex carbon construction.

Mizuno’s ST-G 220 driver has shorter lateral weight tracks allowing a new centre/back weight port. The combination of three tracks and two moveable weights mean the ST-G can be transformed from ultra-low spinning bomber to a highly playable mid-spinning option, with fade or draw bias in both.

The ST-G 220 driver features three weight tracks to help golfers dial in their preferred shot shape and trajectory even more precisely

“Having that little bit of extra adjustability is especially useful out on tour – where we can fine-tune a player’s flight – or make an adjustment for a particular tournament when the player doesn’t want the feel of a completely new driver,” said Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s head of club design.

The evolution to the ST-G 220’s weight locations offers a rare combination of both backspin and fade/draw adjustability options. Traditionally, adjustable drivers have been more effective at just one of those tasks. In every setting the ST-G 220 delivers impressive performance from off-centre strikes, with consistent feedback across the varying weight positions.

“The ST-G 220 has so much more effective movement of weight along both the X and the Z axis,” added Voshall. “We can set it to be very low spin, a more playable mid spin, heavily fade or draw biased and just about anything in-between.”

Like the ST-Z and ST-X, the ST-G 220 driver also features Mizuno’s latest SAT2041 Beta Ti face. SAT2041 stands for Super/Alloy/Titanium/20% Vanadium/4% Aluminum/1% Tin and it offers 17% more tensile strength and 8% more flexibility than traditional 6-4Ti.
