Despite being known for their forging and premium irons, Mizuno is growing their reputation in the metal wood market to the point where they can now boast a PGA Tour win, thanks to Keith Mitchell at the 2019 Honda Classic. Their fairway woods follow the same story as their drivers with one release a season, and various models aimed at different player profiles within the family.
Mizuno split their fairway wood offering into two broad categories, adjustable and non-adjustable. For the player who likes to tinker with their clubs, Mizuno has experimented with sliding weights in the sole of their JPX900 and GT180 fairway wood. Aimed at the better player these fairway woods are small in size with a forward CG location (as a result of the weight channel) which reduces spin and produces a penetrating flight - both characteristics preferred by the better player. The moveable weight was removed in 2019 for the release of the ST190 TS (Tour Spoon) which only featured an adjustable hosel.
For the player who has trust in the engineers, then a second-hand Mizuno fairway wood can be an excellent alternative to the more obvious (and potentially expensive) choice. Featuring a deep face for more flex and ball speed at impact, a carbon crown to lower the CG and help get the ball in the air, and a visible back weight for forgiveness, all wrapped up in the premium Mizuno outer (and maybe with change for a matching hybrid?), what's not to like?
