Mizuno’s ST-G 220 driver has shorter sidewall tracks that allow a new middle / rear weight port. The combination of three lanes and two movable weights means the ST-G can be converted from an ultra-low rotary bomber to a highly playable mid-turn option, with fade or pull bias in both.
‘Having a little extra adjustability is especially handy on tour — where we can customize a player’s flight — or customize for a specific tournament when the player does not want the feel of a brand new driver. , ‘he said. Chris Voshall, Head of Club Design at Mizuno.
The evolution to the weight positions of the ST-G 220 offers a rare combination of backspin and fade / draw adjustable options. Traditionally, adjustable drivers have been more effective with only one of the tasks. In each setting, the ST-G 220 delivers impressive off-center attacks, with constant feedback across the various weight positions.
“The ST-G 220 has so much more effective weight movement along the X and Z axes,” Voshall added. “We can turn it into a very low turn, a more playable middle turn, strongly blurred or unbiased, and just about anything in between.”
Like the ST-Z and ST-X, the ST-G 220 driver also has the latest SAT2041 Beta Ti face from Mizuno. SAT2041 stands for Super / Alloy / Titanium / 20% Vanadium / 4% Aluminum / 1% Tin and offers 17% more tensile strength and 8% more flexibility than traditional 6-4Ti.
