A versatile iron that can fit a wide variety of players from pros to better weekend warriors the 919 Forged fits snugly between the Tour and Hot Metal models. Built with the same Grain Flow Forged HD method as the Tour the Forged is made from Boron infused steel which is approximately 30% stronger than carbon steel.
Other features of the new Hot Metal include the aforementioned “stability frame” design for higher MOI and improved launch as well as Mizuno’s new Pearl Brush non-glare finish.
Though Srixon has long been known for impressive forged irons the woods were always high-quality products that were often overlooked. With the new iteration including most notably the Z 785 driver things are about to change in a big way as new technologies and materials have brought ball speeds (and distance) up to the level of the longer drivers on the market.
Available in both white and yellow the new and improved Q-Star Tour ($30/dozen) golf balls are aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds that desire Tour-like performance with a soft feel and lower price.
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.
