As one would expect from a Mizuno blade the 919 Tour features a Grain Flow Forged HD (high density) construction from1025 Elite carbon steel for the soft responsive feel aficionados demand.
However it’s also fair to say that the company’s handsome big sticks were somewhat known for being a bit shorter than those of some competitors due to slightly higher spin rates and a design aimed at more control.
As a result the TS2 and TS3 drivers represent a whole new level of speed and distance for the company’s big sticks. In addition are TS2 and TS3 fairway woods which benefit from the “speed project” almost as much as the drivers.
The Z 585 is slightly more forgiving and features a high-strength steel face insert in the forged clubhead for higher COR and ballspeed at impact. A new internal “speed groove” behind the clubface further enhances face flex across a larger area of the hitting zone for extra forgiveness on off-center hits.
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.
