It's interesting how people interpret numbers.

Looking at that picture I see it as that the ST is more consistent on distance but the 900 has better L/R dispersion (approx 14 yds v 30 yds)

I’m with you Hursty and my thoughts exactly. But as MPX said, I guess you had to be there. Must be more going on because otherwise I’d expect minimising L/R dispersion to be a key objective.

Does Mizuno give the Tour pro's Tour Van Driver Heads" like other club manufactures or is the head "off the shelf"? By the way I tried to get a tour Van Head for my son who swings at 115 and they are very difficult to get. A club rep who worked on a Tour Van for a while told me that they had to make a head that would rebound at higher swing speeds. He said those heads will give the faster swings speeds a little more yardage than the off the shelf heads but definitely not work for the slower swing speeds.

Laying up on the golf course leads to more shots and in my case, that leads to more naps...

For me i’m glad the tracks have been ditched, I thought the 900 was overly complicated and the impact sound was far too loud, ( just a personal view, I prefer a more muted sound) these, plus the numbers, were the main reasons I rejected the 900 on test.
The key to this driver (as with any driver really) is going to be the shafts, with my M1 changing the HZRDUS yellow to the heavier black shaft (75g) has transformed my numbers, now straighter and longer than the yellow, talking to the fitter at our recent fitting day, he said it was possible to swap my HZRDUS black into the ST180 with a “universal” adapter, what I don’t know yet is HZRDUS are going to be a custom shaft option ? Any info on this would be welcome.
And I still hate the look of the M1 !!!!

  As far as I know from the forum days and with mizuno reps on the forum days . the heads are the same for both the pros and amatuers , thats what makes mizuno special than the rest, also their custom fit .

If you look on the main website the shafts are already up.

They've dropped the whole speeder Evolution line and there are now more options. Hzrdus isn't one though.

Had a look, very few “heavy” weight X shafts, shame they have dropped the Speeder line as that would have been my second choice. Looks like a fitting session is on the cards, providing that Mizuno supply the shafts for the fitting carts, or plan B change adaptor on my hzrdus and fit that.
