Mizuno launch MP-S and D201 Balls

May 3, 2013

Mizuno have 2 new Balls that have just hit the market - the MP-S and the D201. While this is a whole new category for Mizuno in the UK, Mizuno are excited and optimistic about the launch as the balls are 'exceptionally good'.

The MP-S

'Tour Performance with ultra soft Urethene Cover'

The MP-S is Mizuno’s multi-piece tour level ball, with a new ultra soft, tacky urethane cover for exceptional traction on short greenside shots.

A combination of large inner core and highly resilient inner cover result in high initial ball speeds – with 318 large, shallow dimples to produce a mid trajectory and stable, efficient ball flight.

Though the MP-S offers a distinctive balance of touch and control that will predominantly appeal to skilled players - any golfer dealing with firm, fast conditions will appreciate its ability to stick to the green.

“Mizuno launched balls into Japan in 2005 – with a plan to hold back from the western market until there was a construction that met the tour’s expectations. What we liked about the MP-S is that it stops as quickly as it takes off. We could tell from the first touch of the tacky cover, that it would be incredibly responsive around the greens.” - Andy Kikidas, Tour Operations Manager.

Extra ‘tacky’ Urethene cover: New thermo-setting urethane cover for short game traction.

Large inner core: Highly Resilient Polybutadiene Rubber for softest feel and high initial ball speed.

Highly resilient inner cover: Ionomer Inner for high initial ball speed.

318 Large Diameter Dimples: Provides a mid trajectory and stable ball flight.

The D201

'Intelligent Spin With CROSS CORE Technology'

A versatile, all round ball using Mizuno’s Cavity Cross Core to reduce driver backspin - without impacting the traction of shorter, control based shots.

The Cross Core’s unique energy harnessing design and secure cover bonding, also converts clubhead momentum into higher initial ball speeds for greater distance on all types of fuller shot.

A seamless 366 dimple design is incorporated to complement the Cross Core’s flight stability for maximum hang time.

A surprisingly responsive feel and short game control is provided through a soft Ionomer cover.

“The magic of Mizuno’s Cross Core is to produce noticeable increases in flight time and yardage without the hardness of a standard distance ball. Creating a ball that is really long and efficient through the air, but still usable by stronger players in softer conditions when the greens are a little more receptive.” - Kosuke Imamura, Golf Ball Manager / Mizuno Europe.

Intelligent Spin: Using Cavity Cross Core internal fins to specifically reduce driver spin for increased carry and distance.

Soft Ionomer Cover: Responsive around the greens for partial shots.

Secure cover/core bonding: Cross Core Ribs connect more securely to cover to reduce energy loss.

366 Seamless Dimples: Engineered to complement Cross Core characteristics for maximum hang time.
