On the one Hand are These very beautiful indeed. On the other Hand, it's a real shame to see the blue gone. I thought already, that the CLK Hybrid would have been much better looking in blue, but maybe that's just me. I have read that many don't like the blue, so maybe it is a Switch to open up to a wider market. Interested to learn more, but I will stay with my beloved JPX 900!

ST190 already?

How long has the 180 been out?

Definitely needs to be blue.

This one isn’t ‘out’ in the normal Mizuno sense. You won’t see it at retail in 2018. Just broken through earlier than normal on tour - so can’t hide it now.

as a celtic fan im happy the blue is going :)
however as a man who would like to stay married im worried replacing my driver 3 wood and hybrid to black ones might see me living in a 1 bed flat above a chip shop :)

Kev, just leave them in the garage for a few days next to a tin of black spray paint, with a 'wet paint' sign. I'm sure that would do the trick! ;)

How does the good lady know what club is what ....... you should be keeping them hidden 😀

Even I can manage that without Mrs DCB noticing too quickly. Mind you , she does notice eventually, I've a black driver that suddenly became a blue driver recently 😉

Also: It's easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission (in my experience!)

Intrigued as to what the difference(s) is between ST190 and 180 ? (Not the colour😉) having been fitted earlier this year into an 8.5U Tensei Blue X driver, the only complaint I can level at the 180 is it feels a little light in the head certainly compared to say a Callaway Rogue, which is s good job I didn’t trial it as i’m getting 7/10 mph more ball speed (av 164 mphCR v 157mph ST) with similar dispersion.
The 180 is, imo, one of Mizuno’s best drivers since the MP001, if the reports of the new 190 are true are we talking about a serious Callaway rival here.

I hate to say it because sounds so cliched...........but the 190 is light years ahead of the 180. Our tour tech boys are very excited about it,

RRP £449 ST190G and £399 ST190. Scheduled to arrived February 2019.

All the right noises being made on shape, sound, performance. I don't think we'll go from zero drivers on tour to everyone, but we're aiming for a high % of the Mizuno players to have one in play in 2019. If we go past that - great. Product already where it needs to be to unsettle the more recognised driver brands etc - but tour wise, will take us a couple of years to get back on parity.
