What we say...

Mizuno just like other manufacturers are very aware that one driver design doesn’t suit everybody. So let us introduce the new Mizuno MX560 which Mizuno have designed to be ultimately forgiving and powerful, for those on a quest for maximum distance off the tee no matter where shots are hit on the face.

By using a geometrically shaped head which is wide from face to back on the Mizuno MX560, Mizuno engineers have been able to get much more club and the centre of gravity beneath the ball. Dramatically increasing stability over conventionally shaped drivers. Which for the average club golfer means a tighter dispersion between shots, higher launch angles (to increase carry distances) and moderate spin to aid accuracy and distance. Making the MX560 just what most club golfers are actually after. The all titanium head also sounds pleasingly familiar when compared to some of the other designs which are now common place.      

Its worth mentioning that to help make sure you generate maximum club head speed and carry distance Mizuno have installed an extremely light 55g shaft which is 1/2” longer than standard. The club face has also been milled to tight tolerances to expand the sweetspot area and make the club ultra forgiving on off centre hits. And finally the face angle of each loft has cleverly been tailored to the type of player who’s likely to use the club. Meaning the lower lofts are square with higher lofts a fraction closed to help eliminate the slice most club golfers suffer from. You should see these sexy new big sticks arriving in good golf stores during October, for further information contact Mizuno directly.

The Mizuno MX560 Driver has a light shaft to help promote faster swing speed with a high launch angle. The club is available with varying degrees of loft.

    Bought this club on offer for £70 and it is absolutely fantastic. I had a break from golf for around 18 months for various reasons and when I started playing again I decided to get a few bits of equipment to give me a chance when I started playing. This driver is the longest, straightest, most forgiving driver I have ever used. Then there is the noise. As soon as you hit this club everyone knows you are on the course as it makes one heck of a sound. At the £70 I paid for it I believe this is one of the best bargains I have bought. Recommend to everyone

    By welshmonkey

      great sound and keeps hitting long and straight after 2 months I went too my local range pro shop and with great advice picked up two drivers in the end out of the loads they have .Both on offer mx560 £100 £150 he taped them up and said have a whack! now straight away the ring of the mx560 was heard by everyone on the range and a few hairs stood up on my neck .For me though the feel the weight and length of club just suited me too a tee. over the months where I was miss hitting balls now they just ping where I want them .the summer is helping as well mind you as hitting the fairway every time means a good 50 yards run on what I was doing in the winter. so overall great :) hitting straight (check) sound makes you get goose bump (check) lots more distance (check) smiling Welshman (check)

    Had this driver a month, found it very forgiving and straight from the very first hit. The 'tinny' sound takes some getting used to but seeing the ball down the middle makes up for that. I now feel more confident on the tee my whole game is better as a result. Recommend it highly.

    This is a fantastic driver, I've had mine 3 weeks and I absolutely love it. It is so forgiving and hits the ball miles. I was a bit concerned about the noise at impact initially, as I thought it was too loud but that was at the range where you are closed in. I then tried a Taylor Made Burner and this was not that much quieter so I bought it. Out on the course it's fantastic, I love the sound now it's a really great noise, a crisp bang at impact not a loud thud. My mate refers to it as a "hammer". This club is so forgiving, hit's the ball a mile and it flies high so no concerns there. I am really impressed with this club and can't recommend it enough.

    A top driver! - I have the UST Pro Force shaft fitted. Possibly the longest and straightest driver I've owned. I play off 19 and have always struggled with a slice / power fade but this driver seems to have straightened my shots out to a much greater extend than the various square models I've tried. With a good swing and connection I've now been driving the green on my course's short par 4 (270 yards). Yes it's loud but you tend to notice this more at the enclosed bays at the range - on the course it seesm less so and lets be honest, if the ball flies long and straight then who cares if its loud.

    The longest, most forgiving driver I've ever hit! I've played with a Hippo Hex, shaft was too whippy, and most recently a Nike Sasquatch Sumo2 which was not at all forgiving as it's meant to be! It has a tiny sweetspot and a dreadful noise. I went to American Golf and tried around 5 or 6 leading drivers, including Cleveland's XLS and Callaway's Hyper X to find forgiveness, but this Mizuno came out on top for accuracy and distance and of course consistency! After taking it out on the course, I began to reel in the benefits of a consistant driver and began to appreciate this wonderful club. People say it is loud, but it isn't that bad. It sounds crisp and a perfect tone off the clubface and I hope to maintain pleasing results with it.

    Bought this driver when i snappd my shaft in Taylormade R7. Fancied a change and glad i did. Play off 7 and with the weight setup in this club i fin it easier to get the ball on a better flight path. Shaft selection is good and important. Get custom fit for best results.
