This improvement saves weight and lowers and deepens the CG for improved launch and carry distance. As a result of the weight savings in the crown and variable thickness clubface the TS2 actually features the lowest CG of any Titleist driver to date increasing MOI over the previous 917 D2 by as much as 12%.
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.
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.
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.
For players who demand more workability in a driver and more specific tuning the TS3 is the choice. Both the TS2 and TS3 are available with Kuro Kage Black Dual Core 50 Tensei AV Series Blue 55 HZRDUS Smoke Black 60 and Even Flow T1100 White 65 shafts as well as other custom shaft options.
The Z 585 is slightly more forgiving and features a high-strength steel face insert in the forged clubhead for higher COR and ballspeed at impact. A new internal “speed groove” behind the clubface further enhances face flex across a larger area of the hitting zone for extra forgiveness on off-center hits.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Now Mizuno is launching a newly revamped JPX 919 line with a traditional look and impressive technologies that make the three new models worth a serious look for players of all handicap levels.
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.
