Mizuno have thrown the covers off a sensational new mid-range driver for 2009 - the Mizuno MX700.

The new Mizuno MX700 has been created to build on, and better the Mizuno MX560, launched for 2008 and by all accounts it looks like it has done just that.

The piercing sound that vexed our equipment testers when using the MX560 has been replaced by a more solid “thud” at impact in the Mizuno MX-700, created by the “vibration dampening internal hull”.

The club also features, as you might expect from a modern-day driver, an extremely high MOI which provides ultimate forgiveness for “off-centre” strikes and at a price of £199 it is bound to sell exremely well.

But there is only one way of really finding out how good, or bad, the new Mizuno MX700 driver really is and that's to take it out to hit some balls.

Scroll down now to see our world exclusive first hit of the Mizuno MX700 driver...
