Mizuno DNA Fitting Specialist



After a decade fitting amateurs (and Luke Donald), Mizuno's technicians found that matching golfers to the right shaft can add 10-30 yards to every iron in the bag - as well as improving shot dispersion.

Mizuno's Swing DNA system makes it an easy process by selecting the best three iron shaft options from more than 50 possibilities - after just three of your better swings with the shaft optimiser. Using your unique Swing DNA (head speed, tempo, toe down, kick angle and release factor), Mizuno's software recommends the best three shafts to test and a customised combination of hybrids, irons and wedges.

Swing DNA - What's the blueprint?

Just ten years ago the most complex shaft choice a serious golfer had to make was 'Stiff or regular?' Now the massive growth of custom fitting has thrown up so many options that the average player has more ways to get it wrong than ever.

Faced with this problem, Mizuno has developed a cutting edge technology that takes shaft fitting to a whole new level. In creating Swing DNA a unique system that identifies the unique blueprint in every swing - Mizuno has addressed the most critical element of the entire custom fitting process.

Specially-created software sifts through the mass of shaft options to select the optimal match, based on Swing DNA recorded by Mizuno's Shaft Optimiser. What was once a time-consuming and inaccurate process is now one that is immediate, consistent and widely available.

Shaft Optimisation

On traditional custom built sets shaft recommendations were based on the theory that fast swingers required stiff s, while everybody else was a regular. Twenty years on, the Mizuno range of custom iron shafts has evolved to more than 50 options, with only a few State of the Art Facilities able to take advantage.

Mizuno's new Shaft Optimiser changes everything. A real golf club with specially developed strain gauges and microprocessor, the Shaft Optimiser records an individuals Swing DNA from just 3 real shots. Combined with an exclusive Mizuno software the unique DNA is used to narrow down a baffling prospect of more than 50 shafts to the very best match - with 2 back up suggestions to test against.

The Shaft Optimiser is unique in the amount of information it records. Clubhead speed and tempo might typically determine the ideal flex and weight of the shaft, but with so many variables to consider - weight, flex, kick point, tip softness - much more hard data is required to accurately determine a player's optimimum shaft. The Shaft Optimiser also measures shaft toe down, shaft kick angle and release factor readings in order to build up the players unique blueprint.
