It’s for: All skill levels
Masao Nagai, global director of R&D: “All the game improvement drivers out there have high MOI and COR to the [rules] limit. We take these elements to the extreme with revolutionary Ti-9 titanium that comprises the ‘Hot Metal’ face. You’ll never hit it longer or straighter.”
How It Works: MX-700 boasts the lowest, deepest center of gravity (CG) and highest moment of inertia (MOI) of any Mizuno driver. Company brass say the grain structure (in the titanium face) expands the high-COR area and boosts ball speed. A low, deep CG should bolster head stability on shots struck high or low on the face. The result is low-spinning shots with a high, penetrating flight. Internal reinforcements improve sound while a crown decal makes for simple alignment.
