Mizuno MP 630 Driver

Has anyone gotten their hands on this new club yet? If so, how is it?

I am dying to try it out! If it's good, I more than likely will swap out my Titleist 907D2 for it.

I hit a non-Fastrack model with the "made for" Fubuki in Stiff flex. I really liked the club, it's a nice compact pear shape, the Fubuki feels great. I hit it mid trajectory, and low spin (no launch monitors, but I didn't balloon it when hitting cuts into the wind). Feel is very good, felt hot on good shots, solid on "not so great" swings. Seemed to hit the ball straight.

All that said, it's a very good driver package with the stock shaft, but to be honest, it wasn't a major step up from any of my proven older drivers such as an '07 Burner with 85g NV or FT-5 with VS Proto.

Thanks for the feedback. Would you say it is worth it to upgrade to the Mizuno from my Titleist 907D2?

I hit it last weekend (both models the MP-630 and 630 Fast Track). I tested the Fast Track in both the 1-10 and 5-6 setting. I did notice that when set up with the weights in the 1-10 setting the ball (a brand new top-flight range) did fly lower. I'll give it another try when the weather gets better. Overall it felt solid, but wasn't as comfortable as my 983K. It does frame the ball nice, so that's a plus! And the stock shaft is OK (Fubuki) would like a little less torque.

Can't really help you there, I've never hit a 907D2. I will say, it didn't really do anything my 905R won't do.

Got a second hand one there on ebay, fast track with Adlai proto x shaft in it, the weight adjustment is very good, just a standard Allen key the feel is good but sound just like a crack u would get from a wooden club it does take some getting used to, when set right very long 10-15 by my Hogan CS3 will definitely put Hogan out of the bag for awhile and the weight adjustment allows change the ball flight depending on conditions

Ive had a couple of them in the non-Fasttrack version.  Theyre a nice driver.  Straight and fairly long if you had a solid swing.  They arent really a driver for a high-handicapper or slow swinger though because they are designed for a slightly lower launch and have a slightly smaller head.

I got rid of mine simply because I wasnt consistent enough with it.  When you hit it solid, the ball launched like it was shot of out a cannon but when I missed the center of the face, you never knew where the ball might land.

Agree may not be the straightest if not hit out of the middle, quite a hook when hit off the toe, the Hogan is a very straight club but hit it very very high, it says 9.5 on the bottom, put I'm not joking it must have 12degrees on it. Was getting 290 out of the mizuno , 275 out of the Hogan according to the GPS but slightly into the wind so would have suited the mizuno
