The JPX 919 Hot Metal is available in 4-LW in both right and left hand options with a wide variety of premium no-upcharge shafts and grips. All three new JPX 919 irons are available through Mizuno’s Performance Fitting System and can be mixed and matched depending on individual player needs and preferences.
However I’d say it’s unlikely that a new iteration of the Mini is coming any time soon. Modern fairway wood designs like TaylorMade’s M3 and M4 for example are so good and so long that former Mini players can simply find the right fit and most likely get the same or even better performance.
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.
The Pro/SL is not only one of the most popular shoes in golf it’s also big with Tour players covering the talented feet of pros like Adam Scott Louis Oosthuizen Lee Westwood and others. Unlike the casual spikeless models of the past the Pro/SL offers exceptional stability and support as well as all-weather performance.
If you prefer high-end milled putters then Bettinardi and Evnroll are good bets. SeeMore which is known largely due to Zach Johnson’s success (he grabbed the Green Jacket and Claret Jug with one) offers a wide array of designs.
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.
A significant key to the Hot Metal design is the use of stronger and more expensive Chromoly rather than carbon steel in the manufacturing process. The stronger material allows for a multi-thickness cup face for more ball speed and distance than the previous 900 Hot Metal as well as redesigned sound ribs in the cavity for precisely tuned vibration and feel at impact.
Both new TS fairway models feature similar technologies as the drivers including extremely thin crowns that are 27% thinner for lower and deeper CG locations thinner clubfaces with variable thickness for more ball speed distance and forgiveness on off center hits and better weight distribution for higher MOI and stability.
Among those I’d start by looking at models from Bettinardi Evnroll SeeMore Happy and Bloodline. Each of these companies make high-quality products at varying price points. Furthermore they can perform exceptionally well provided you find one that fits your stroke eye and feel preference.
For those who see the athletic breathable design as “just a sneaker” the Ignite PWRSPORT also features a very strong lightweight TPU saddle and a thinner TPU material in high-stress areas for Tour-like performance in all types of turf conditions.
Check them out and see if one is right for you but keep in mind the TS2 is aimed at those who want high launch low spin distance and forgiveness while the TS3 is aimed at those who want mid launch low spin and enhanced workability.
Like the fairway woods the Z-series hybrids are not adjustable but come in a selection of lofts including 16° 19° and 22° models. Project X HZRDUS Black 85 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips come standard.
