Mizuno’s ST190 Fairway Wood promises flexibility like a driver and maximised ball speed due to the high energy steel face. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it to the test.
By Carly Frost
The ST190 is a deeper, powerful fairway wood, combining a high energy Maraging Steel face and lower spin chassis. Engineered using our amplified Wave soleplate and carbon composite crown. The deeper clubface flexes more like a driver - maximising the ball speed produced by the high energy face. An ultra-lightweight carbon allows 4g of weight to be moved low within the clubhead - allowing a rare combination of deeper clubface and efficient, low spin ball flight.
If there was a line-up of stylish sports cars lined up to choose from the ST190 would get m pick. It’s super sleek and elegantly styled and when you rev the engine, boy does it pack a powerful punch! The hidden wave technology really works to give you a wonderfully balanced club to swing. The lightweight feel boosts swing speed for effortless distance that’s easy to control. The tacky grip is lovely to hold and the solid impact sound is spot-on.
