Finally got here after 2 aborted landing attempts at Gibraltar and ending up in Malaga.

On a brighter note will have some news and pics on the new MP woods tomorrow from the Workshop at Valderrama. I hope the sun comes out!

Can't wait to see the new wood line-up!!

Thanks for the ealry heads up UTY. Very clean looking woods line there and the colour scheme is classy too. Are they generally a little open at address and smaller heads than JPX line?

The 650 line are aimed at the competent player and are set up with slightly open face angles. The fairway woods (and obviously the driver) are titanium and produce a very high ball speed from a large area of the face.

So far on tour we've recorded good launch angle and spin ratios, as well as high ball speeds - so a very good combination all round.

We started promotion on tour 2-3 weeks back and so far these are in play (with quite a few others being tested) -

ALVARO VELASCO- 15* FUJIKURA ROMBAX Z7X
DAVID DIXON- 15* FUJIKURA SPEEDER 7.2X - 17*HYBRID FUJIKURA SPEEDER HY80X
DANIEL GAUNT- 15* PROJECT X 7A3- 17*HY PROJECT X HB6
MAGNUS CARLSSON- 17*HYBRID VS PROTO 95X
PETER WHITEFORD- 15* DIAMANA WHITEBOARD 73X
RICARDO GONZALEZ- 13.5* DIAMANA WHITEBOARD 83X
MARKUS BRIER 13.5*+ 18* PROJECT X 7B3

NON MIZUNO STAFF
MARK FOSTER- 15* PROLITE FW X
EMANUEL CANONICA- 13.5+18 PROJECT X 8A4
JM CANIZARES- 15* FUJIKURA ROMBAX Z7X

Luke has been testing and the initial reports are good. The same applies to Chris Wood but he's been injured for the last couple of weeks so further testing will be done on his return.

I'm hoping that the current graphite shaft options will change with the launch of the 650s as it did with the 630s. Since the UST Axivcore is almost EOL in favor of the VTS, Mizuno might go along. Personally I'd love the Epic to make it back (was an option in '09/'10).
On a side note, does anyone know why the US custom order program includes more/different shafts than the EU's?

We have a large selection of wood shaft options which works very well for fine tuning a player through a fitting. We tend to have few shaft models but offer more weights/flexes/kick points within the chosen options.

I'm amazed by how many amateurs want to use a certain shaft because of the colour or name or popularity on tour when the type of shaft could be totally wrong for them. I guess that's "marketing" working but it's more important you have a shaft that's right for you rather than the colour you prefer!

The Axivcore is still widely used on tour but maybe isn't seen as such a fashionable shaft as it's been around for a while. Here's one for you - the Dynamic Gold iron shaft is over 30 years old!
