To remedy that situation the folks at Titleist started the “Titleist Speed Project” a plan to develop faster woods that provide maximum distance higher launch and ultra-competitive performance overall.
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.
Featuring the same Ti51AF Cup Face and lightweight carbon crown as the Z 785 the friendlier model comes standard with a Project X HARDUS Red shaft with an active tip section for higher trajectory shots for a wider variety of players.
According to Brian Schielke marketing director at Srixon Golf the newest line of Z Series woods don’t simply represent an evolutionary improvement over the company’s past models but rather a “revolutionary” one and for good reason.
A combination of extreme foam cushioning and molded traction elements in the sole that can hold any surface provides the kind of comfort one would expect from a premium-priced shoe. A model with BOA’s laceless closure system ($189.99) is also available for those who want a more exacting fit in the heel.
