Mizuno, a leader in golf technology and innovation, has launched their longest and most forgiving woods and hybrids yet.
Their new MX-700 family, featuring the latest distance-enhancing “Hot Metal” technology will give you, they say with confidence, a driver, fairway woods, and hybrid clubs that stand out in the crowd.
And this thanks to the use of new, state of the art face materials and geometric designs that have created “unbelievable forgiveness and red hot ball speeds for unsurpassed distance across the range”..
MX-700 Driver
The MX-700 possesses the lowest and deepest COG, has the largest MOI, and is by far the longest and most forgiving driver in Mizuno’s history.
A “Hot Metal” Ti-9 titanium face, plasma welded to a 6-4 titanium body, possesses a unique, vertically aligned grain structure which greatly expands the COR area and increases ball speed for long and straight drives, even on off-center strikes.
A geometrically driven head shape provides an extremely low and deep COG and a centrally located sweet spot for enhanced vertical stability, resulting in low spin and a high, penetrating ball flight. Additionally, Mizuno’s “Power Hull” body construction utilizes internal reinforcements for powerful feel and sound, and a strategically designed crown decal makes alignment easy at address.
“The Ti-9 ‘Hot Metal’ face in the MX-700 is the first of its kind, and is designed to enhance initial ball velocity from every spot on the club face.” said Dick Lyons, the General Manager, Mizuno USA Golf.
“This breakthrough face technology combined with an optimized launch angle, spin rate, COR area, and Moment of Inertia (MOI) make the MX-700 the longest and most forgiving driver you’re going to find.”

MX-700 Fairway Woods:
The same “Hot Metal” Technology that makes the MX-700¿ driver one of the most explosive in golf, can also be found in the new MX-700¿ fairway woods through an extremely strong, thin, and light weight ES230 steel face.
This innovative face is plasma welded to a stainless steel 17-4 body, delivering an expanded COR area and increased ball speed for amazing energy transfer from club head to ball and maximum distance.
The ultra light weight “Hot Metal” face also allows for the redistribution of weight for a low and deep COG resulting in a high, easy launch and optimal trajectory.
The MX-700 fairway woods share the same strategically designed crown decal as the driver for easy alignment from the tee box as well as from the fairway. In addition, the Mizuno Exsar FS4 shaft is specifically designed for fairway wood performance, not just a cut-down driver shaft which is often the case with typical fairway woods.
“We’ve noticed that our tour players in particular have been asking for ‘hotter’ performance from their fairway woods recently,” says David Llewellyn, Golf Club R&D Manager, Mizuno USA.
“The requests for hot faces used to be confined to driver, but these guys are trying to squeeze out every possible yard.
“With smaller headed designs like fairways and hybrids, it isn’t easy to get that ‘hot feel’ – the smaller face area is more rigid. But by using the new ES230 steel in the MX-700s we’ve done everything we can from a material perspective. The 700’s feel extremely lively at impact and I think amateurs are going to love this advancement just as much as the pros.”

MX-700 Hybrids;
Rounding out the MX-700 family is a high performance hybrid with an extremely strong, thin and light weight ES230 “Hot Metal” steel face, plasma welded to a 431 stainless steel body for an expanded COR area resulting in extremely high, long, and accurate golf shots.
In addition, a patented “Drop Down Crown” design creates a very low and deep COG for an easy launch, and allows the MX-700 hybrids to be completely lie and loft adjustable, something that only Mizuno offers. Again, Mizuno has designed a shaft specifically for maximum hybrid performance in the Mizuno Exsar HS4, which comes standard in the MX-700 hybrids.
“Hot metal technology is truly a breakthrough in face technology because it can be utilized in the design of not only drivers, but fairway woods and hybrids as well.” says Lyons.
“The use of high tech ES230 steel as the face material in the MX-700 hybrid increases the COR, or trampoline effect across the entire face, making it feel like the ball explodes off the face with each and every swing.”
