Featuring a blade-like clubhead with a small cavity and relatively narrow sole the Z 785 has more mass behind the sweetspot for improved versatility as well as a new Tour V.T. sole that improves turf interaction.
Like the Tour the Forged also features a “stability frame” design with a stronger toe area and topline for increased stability on off-center hits and a new more durable Pearl Brush finish.
Because the Z U85 features a more iron-like design than typical hybrid clubs it can easily be blended with the other Z irons for a truly customized set. Lofts available include 18° 20° 23° 26° and 29° all with UST Recoil 95 graphite shafts as standard.
Since then however the JPX 900 models most notable the Forged Tour have been a huge hit with all kinds of players including two-time US Open champ Brooks Koepka.
The Tour V.T. sole improves turf interaction as well. Both new models come standard with Nippon Modus steel shafts with a Miyazaki Kaula graphite shaft also available.
