Cortech Chamber den stora nyheten i Mizunos nya ST 230-serie

Mizunos Speed Technology-projekt har utmynnat i en helt ny energikälla: Cortech Chamber. Den här innovationen lanseras nu i nya ST 230-serien med drivers, fairwayklubbor och hybrider.



Mizunos ingenjörer har arbetat hårt och utnyttjat feedback från företagets kontrakterade tourspelare och ytterligare förbättrat sina drivers, fairwayklubbor och hybrider som annars hamnat lite i skymundan bakom företaget fantastiska järnklubbor.


Under en fyra år lång process har man samlat på sig en rad innovationer i det man kallar sitt Speed Technology-projekt, med bland annat en Beta Ti-träffyta och flera iterativa steg för bättre stabilitet, ljud och spinn


Nu har Mizuno identifierat den saknade pusselbiten för bollhastighet och lanserar nya ST 230-serien med en Cortech Chamber. Det här är en kammare som innehåller en vikt i rostfritt stål och TPU, vilket minskar belastningen på träffytan och utgör en extra kraftkälla. Det placerar samtidigt vikt närmare träffytan för mindre spinn och en mer solid och kraftfull känsla i träffen.


“Our player testing over the years shows that placing extra weight close to the face results in faster ball speeds and low spin rates,” says David Llewellyn, Director of R&D for Mizuno. “We’ve been steadily working towards the CORTECH Chamber, which is incredibly effective at that job. Encasing the steel weight within the TPU Chamber means that we’re moving weight close to the face at the same time as creating an additional source of energy. Steel is twice the density of Titanium but won’t weld directly, which is where the TPU has a second role.”

Nya Cortech Chamber finns i tre nya ST 230- drivers samt även i ST-Z-fairwayklubban och -hybriden.


Hela ST 230-serien med drivers, fairwayklubbor och hybrider kommer till shopparna redan i februari och priserna ligger på 6195 kronor för drivers, 3795 kronor för fairwayklubbor och 3495 kronor för hybrider.


Teknisk information om hela serien:


ST-Z 230 Driver

STRAIGHT, STABLE AND LOW SPINNING


A straight bias driver with great stability from off centre hits that’s similar in look and character to the previous ST-Z. The Forged SAT 2041 Beta Ti face is boosted by the CORTECH Chamber to be faster from the face, spin less and deliver an incredible, solid sensation at impact, while the carbon sole plate is now a single piece to allow weight to be pushed to the extremes for overall stability. It offers a modern players’ profile and Quick Switch hosel with 4 degrees of adjustability.


“Tour tests for the ST-Z 230 have all been very consistent,” says Chris Voshall, Mizuno’s Director of Product. “Firstly, an appreciation that the look is familiar at address, then satisfaction at how much better it feels off the face. Ball speeds are up on average 1-3mph with spin rates dropping around 200 rpm.”

Availability: Right Hand – 9.5 and 10.5 degrees

Left hand – 9.5 degrees only


ST-X 230 Driver

MORE WORKABLE, MILD DRAW-BIASED


A more rounded, deeper profile with weight located closer to the hosel means it’s slightly higher spinning and draw biased for the majority. But it’s also more workable for many elite players (especially in lower lofts). Natural drawers of the ball may find more ball speed from the ST-X. The Forged SAT 2041 Beta Ti face is boosted by the CORTECH Chamber to be faster from the face, spin less and deliver an incredible, solid sensation at impact, while the carbon sole plate is now a single piece to allow weight to be pushed to the extremes for overall stability. The deeper profile aligns square in the neutral settings and the Quick Switch hosel offers 4 degrees of workability.


“The new ST-X 230 is a complex character,” says Chris Voshall. “Although in the higher loft option it’s a higher flying draw biased option, the 9.5 for many of our tour players was more workable and faster from the face. You really need to hit both models before making any judgements on which is likely to work best for you.”

Availability: Right Hand – 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degrees

Left Hand – 10.5 degrees


ST-X PLTNM 230 Driver

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT FOR SLOWER SWING SPEEDS


A high launching, super lightweight draw biased driver – ideal for slower and moderate swing speeds. The ST-X PLTNM is 30g lighter overall than any possible custom option of the ST-X 230, with a high spec Helium Platinum Shaft and lightweight grip. The Forged SAT 2041 Beta Ti face is boosted by the CORTECH Chamber to be faster from the face, spin less and deliver an incredible, solid sensation at impact, while the carbon sole plate is now a single piece to allow weight to be pushed to the extremes for overall stability. Weight is located closer to the shaft axis to create draw bias and the Quick Switch hosel offers 4 degrees of adjustability.

Availability: Right Hand – 10.5 degrees


ST-Z 230 Fairway Wood

STRAIGHT, STABLE AND HIGH LAUNCHING


A mid-low spinning, high launching, adjustable fairway wood. Although it was developed hand in hand with Mizuno’s tour advisors, it’s mid-sized and playable for all levels. Utilizing a high energy MAS1C steel face boosted by Mizuno’s CORTECH Chamber, it delivers exceptional ball speeds and powerful, solid sensation at impact. The carbon composite crown offers a low centre of gravity and stability while the expanded front to back weighting delivers consistent launch characteristics. The Quick Switch hosel offers 4 degrees of adjustability.


“The elevated ball of the CORTECH Chamber is a great addition to the ST-Z fairway woods, but the stability might be the real stand-out,” says Chris Voshall. “They feel like they are on tracks through impact.”

Availability: Right Hand – 3 wood (15) and 5 wood (18)

Left hand – 3 wood (15)



ST-Z 230 Hybrid

STRAIGHT, STABLE AND HIGH LAUNCHING


A mid-low spinning, high launching, adjustable hybrid. Although it was developed hand in hand with Mizuno’s tour advisors, it’s playable for all levels. Utilizing a high energy MAS1C steel face boosted by Mizuno’s CORTECH Chamber, it delivers exceptional ball speeds and powerful, solid sensation at impact. It has a slightly larger, more playable footprint than its predecessor the CLK with waffle crown and thick sole weight engineered to create a low sweet spot and deep centre of gravity for high launch and efficient spin rates.


“The CORTECH Chamber is very effective on the fairway woods and hybrids as it does such a good job of lowering the sweet spot – maintaining ball speeds when you have to pinch one from a tight fairway,” says Chris Voshall.

Availability: Right Hand – 2H (16), 3H (19), 4H (22) and 5H (25)

Left Hand – 3H (19) and 4H (22)
