Mizuno St200 Driver Review
Being an elite driver boils down to just one thing: speed. The goal of elite drivers is to achieve maximum ball speed, with the highest strikes possible. However, you want to preserve as much information as possible if the strike falls short. Both of these metrics are not met by the Mizuno ST200.
To be clear, the ST200 is not a bad driver. It’s fine. The ST200 is fine. However, the ST200 has not been a great option after a year of MAVRIK drivers (reviews HERE ), Tour Edge Exotics EXS 220 reviews HERE, and PING G410 Plus review HERE.
Although the ST200 driver does not have a great track record in ball speed preservation, its spin and launch are impressive. Even though the strike was not ideal, my drives followed the exact same path with strong ball flight.
One of the biggest disappointments about the Mizuno ST200 shaft options is that there are not many. Mizuno has no other options for golfers than the three stock shafts offered by many manufacturers. If you want a regular flex, you’re getting the Diamana Red M+. The Diamana Blue S+ is for you if you prefer stiffness. Full stop.
How would you use it?
Mizuno drivers, I have been converted. It looks fantastic and performs really well too.
You have to admit, before I put the headcover on it I wasn’t sure if ST200 would compete with TaylorMade Callaway Ping Titleist.
I would happily play the ST200G Driver.

Mizuno St200 Driver Review
Club Fitter Mizuno was founded by Justin Pahl. Their irons were a long-standing trademark. Particularly the feel of their irons. Their irons are played by many tour pros who are “free agents”. This “free agent” doesn’t have to sign any clubs contracts. They can choose what they want. It’s flattering for a club manufacturer to see a pro tour choose their product because of its feel and performance, and not because they get paid. Mizuno is known for producing “Tour Ready irons,” year after year. This brings me to Mizuno’s new driver line this year, the ST200 series.
The new 2020 Mizuno driver lines are the ST200G ST200G ST200X and ST200X. Mizuno has a patented phrase that says “Nothing tastes like a Mizuno” and this is evident in the looks, sounds, and feelings of all of these drivers. The only question remaining is do these new drivers perform to that “Tour Ready” standard that their irons have. These drivers can be confidently confirmed that they meet that standard. You’ll see the data later on in this review to support this assertion.
There are three head styles available for the ST200, which allows it to accommodate a range of playing skills and preferred ball flight requirements. The ST200 is a super stable mid/low spin head that gives low spin forgiveness. We have a Beta-rich forged Ti Ti face, which is 77% stronger than their ST190 driver line. A 11.6g backweight helps stabilize the head. Also the ability to set the loft at 4 degrees gives us an excellent “Tour Ready”, product. It has the same Beta rich, forged Ti face as their ST190G. This is extremely quick but gives off a soft and lively feeling. The ST200G has 2 weight adjustable tracks, which help to optimize spin from ultra-low to mid. Last but not least, the ST200X drives a high level of launching draw. For players seeking a low draw and fast speed, the ST200X has a fixed weight with an upright lie angle. The carbon composite crown of the ST200G, ST200G, and ST200X gives the player high spin and launch.
The test that I conducted was to see if Mizuno has improved upon their already solid driver, the ST190 series. I am looking for an improvement in the ball speed as well as proper launch conditions. Unfortunately, I could only test the ST200G. I haven’t been able to get my hands on a ST200X yet, that test is yet to come. Atmos Black Tour Spec 6X is the shaft I used. The 9* ST00G was turned down 7*, and the 9.5*ST200 was turned down to 7.5%. I tend to be a higher spin player, so having the lofts so low helps optimize my launch conditions and gives these drivers the best chance to perform for me. Six shots were taken with each driver. Here are the details:
Driver Club Headspeed Ball Speed Speed Launch Angle Spin Rate
ST190 16.2 mph. 168.9mph.1*2625.rpm 289.5yds
ST200 117.7 mph 170.0 mph 12.6* 2503 rpm 292.5 yds
Mizuno St200 Driver Review, Photos And More: Clubtest 2020
For ClubTest 2020, we tested and reviewed 28 new drivers to help you find the right one for your game. These are the Mizuno ST200 results.
Price: $400 / BUY NOW Lofts: 9.5deg, 10.5deg Our take: The Beta Rich Forged Titanium face is 17 percent stronger and maintains its performance longer than traditional materials. The compacted Wave Solle resulted in a weight savings of 11.6 grams. This allows for an additional weight of forgiveness and spin. Also available in draw-bias ST200X and adjustable-weight ST200G. Better players will appreciate the flatter crown and lie angle.
ClubTester’s 8-hdcp take: “Classic styling combined with modern-age technology.” And it feels outstanding!”
Robot’s Take: Mid-swing speed ball speed winners.
