Mizuno Custom Fitting – 1 hour fitting session
Mizuno’s Swing DNA player profiling system now builds a full bag recommendation – beyond irons to driver and wedges. From just 3 swings the new Shaft Optimizer 3D records five critical data points to recommend shaft, lie angle, set make up and golf ball.
CUSTOM FITTED, CUSTOM BUILT – Mizuno builds custom equipment to industry leading precision. Our European custom assembly line in Cumbernauld Scotland was established to the same working practices as our original plant in Yoro Japan, yet we commonly dispatch within 30 working days of receiving orders (parts allowing).
TAKE 3 SWINGS – Strain gauges within the Shaft Optimizer record how you move the shaft. Golfers are generally surprised how consistent their ‘good’ and ‘bad’ swings are. Variation in the result is nearly always down to inconsistency of strike.
ENTER YOUR DATA INTO SWING DNA SOFTWARE – Your fitter will take data from your 3 swings of data and enter into the Swing DNA software. The software will recommend a lie angle and align your unique DNA with a map of custom shafts independently measured and assessed by Mizuno.
RANK EVERY IRON SHAFT FOR SUITABILITY – Our Swing DNA software will rank every available iron shaft (based on their EI curves) as best to worst theoretical match against your swing profile. The new software shows every available shaft in order of suitability.
TEST THE RECOMMENDATIONS – Your Swing DNA shaft selection is based on science. After hitting the recommended options your fitter will be able to show you real world distances and dispersion. You may decide to promote a lower ranked shaft based on feel and sound. You may even prefer a non-optimal flight that suits your eye. You make the final decision.
WHAT CAN WE RECOMMEND? – Once we have your unique Mizuno Swing DNA – our software is able to recommend custom set ups for irons, wedges, hybrids, driver and golf ball.
WHAT DO WE MEASURE? – The Shaft Optimizer measures 5 elements of your swing. Club head speed alone doesn’t dictate which shaft should be most effective for your swing.
- CLUBHEAD SPEED – How fast the clubhead and shaft are moving during the swing
- TEMPO – How quickly the player transitions from the backswing to the downswing.
- SHAFT TOE DOWN – A measure of the bowing of the shaft in a downward direction during the downswing.
- SHAFT KICK ANGLE – The amount of shaft forward bending during the downswing motion.
- RELEASE FACTOR – How and when the clubhead and shaft are releasing during the downswing motion.
Our DNA software suggests 3 best matched shafts to test – but there are also human factors (e.g. feel) that can override the recommendations. The final decision is always down to the player.
“I walked in the the Mizuno store in Atlanta and got optimized. I am 57 and had been slowly moving into regular flex, trusting the pro recommendations. The Optimizer put me into Extra Stiff and my dispersion went from Tennis Court to Service box. I’m a believer.
“Went for a Mizuno fitting with my Pro, who is also a Master Fitter. He “didn’t need” the Optimizer to select my proper shaft. I struggled for 30 minutes with three different heads to hit solid shots. Then I insisted on employing the optimizer, which suggested three shafts the Pro thought would never work for me. A month later, I have a new set of 919s with a shaft suggested by the optimizer and new Pro!”
