Mizuno MP-S balls
Golf Monthly Verdict

GM verdict: Delivered a consistent and powerful flight, from driver 
right through the bag. Despite a very soft feel, the ball is extremely durable. But... didn't produce as much spin on wedge shots as similar balls. PGA pro verdict: This is another strong Mizuno MP product, with impressive feel and a great flight on full shots. Unusually, it felt softer off the putter than it did when hitting full wedge shots. Test team rating: Performance: 4/5 Visual appeal: 3/5 Innovation: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 4/5

Key technology:

A soft, tacky urethane cover is designed to offer exceptional traction on short shots. A large inner core and highly resilient inner cover should result in high initial ball speeds to produce a mid trajectory and stable flight.
