Mizuno will be launching their first ever golf ball on Europeean soil in mid March with the multi-piece tour level MP-S ball.
The MP-S is the third generation of Mizuno's MP ball line, but it will be the first to be sold outisde of Japan.
The MP-S has an ultra soft, tacky urethane cover for exceptional spin and feel around the greens, while a combination of large inner core and highly resilient inner cover result in high initial ball speeds – with 318 large, shallow dimples to produce a mid trajectory and stable, efficient ball flight.
"We've tested all the Mizuno balls since 2005 as the technology progressed. It was critical we had something really special before we could introduce a ball to Europe. We were unanimous that the MP-S- was that special ball," said Andy Kikidas, Tour Operations Manager.
"What we liked about the MP-S is that it stops as quickly as it takes off. We could tell from the first touch of the tacky cover, that it would be incredibly responsive around the greens. The R&D team describe the cover as highly 'visco-elastic'. In laymans terms it means it's soft, but returns to its original shape quickly."
RRP: £50 a dozen
