The new Z 785 is also more forgiving than the past model due to a lightweight carbon crown that allows for a lower and deeper CG location. Customized adjustability is provided by Srixon’s Quick Tune system that allows for fast loft lie and face angle adjustment as well as swing weight alterations via a choice of interchangeable weights (4g 6g 8g 10g 12g).
Though Srixon has long been known for impressive forged irons the woods were always high-quality products that were often overlooked. With the new iteration including most notably the Z 785 driver things are about to change in a big way as new technologies and materials have brought ball speeds (and distance) up to the level of the longer drivers on the market.
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.
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.

Bryson DeChambeau bested Tony Finau by four strokes and captured the Northern Trust at Ridgewood CC in New Jersey on Sunday with a final-round 69.
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.
Comfort is maximized through the use of Puma’s proprietary Ignite foam in the midsole a design that also provides energy return with each step as well as plenty of stability during the swing.
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.
But when the company introduced the JPX line a few years back some questioned the look of the matte finish and where the new sticks fit in with the vaunted MP line.
Available in both white and yellow the new and improved Q-Star Tour ($30/dozen) golf balls are aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds that desire Tour-like performance with a soft feel and lower price.
As one would expect from a Mizuno blade the 919 Tour features a Grain Flow Forged HD (high density) construction from1025 Elite carbon steel for the soft responsive feel aficionados demand.
Other features include a low compression core for excellent feel and low-spin distance on long shots and a 338 speed dimple pattern for less drag improved launch and solid performance in windy conditions. Less sidespin for straighter shots is an additional benefit a wide variety of players will appreciate.
