Made for players that demand solid Mizuno looks and feel with enhanced forgiveness and distance the new 919 Hot Metal is a progressive set with slightly larger long and mid irons and more compact short irons and wedges.
Aimed at low-handicappers and pros the 919 Tour model replaces the 900 Tour a.k.a. the Brooks Koepka model and features an improved shape with a bit thinner topline that the many Tour players who game the iron prefer. A new more durable Pearl Brush finish reduces glare while providing a bit more refined look than the previous matte finish.
In addition the Z 785 comes stock with the exceptional Project X HZRDUS Black shaft which is hand made in San Diego for the utmost consistency (fyi – they go for about $300 in the aftermarket). For those considering this good-looking new stick it promotes a more boring low-spin trajectory and enhanced workability over the non-adjustable Z 585 model.
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.
In addition both models feature an improved version of Titleist’s Active Recoil Channel technology in the sole creating more face flex particularly on low hits yielding higher launching lower spinning longer shots.
