And for those fans of the sneaky good Z U65 utility irons there’s a new and improved Z U85 version that functions equally well from both the fairway and the tee. So check out the new Z Series from Srixon – maybe one will find a place in your bag sooner than later.
The new TS2 features several design elements that contribute to making it significantly longer than the previous 917 D2 including an extremely thin titanium crown that’s approximately 20% thinner.
Designed for discerning players that demand a soft forged feel enhanced workability as well as added distance and forgiveness both the Z 785 and Z 585 irons should make any traditionalist happy.

As is the case with the drivers the TS2 fairway features a fixed CG location that’s low and deep for high launching mid-spin shots while the TS3’s CG can be customized via Titleist’s SureFit CG technology.

A slightly rounded toe shape and wider area in the front of the shoe improve traction and comfort while foam sockliners mold to your feet for improved fit. The Sport BOOST 3 is also built with an “Energy Sling” design that helps direct energy transfer more efficiently.
Also new in the Z woods family are the Z 585 driver a non-adjustable model with the same distance-inducing technologies as the Z 785 as well as Z F85 fairways and Z H85 hybrids.
Like the TS2 the TS3 features the same thin titanium crown for lower and deeper CG location thinner and faster clubface for more distance and improved aerodynamic shape for more swing speed.
