VERDICT Mizuno’s boldest step in adjustability has – in theory – infinite settings. Besides an adjustable hosel, there are two weight chips that fit in three spots. You can address a slice or hook by putting weight in the heel or toe slots, but the real plus is the centre-weight track that fits in one or both weights to tweak spin and launch angle. Furthermore, a sliding chip on the sole lets you dial in your preferred face angle at address. Dizzying perhaps, but the new face design forgives mis-hits, too. COMMENTS (L) The size and shape are confidence-inspiring at address. (M) Easy to find the centre of the face. (H) The blue is calming. It gave me a swing mindset instead of a hit mindset.
