A slight draw bias is created by a removable weight located toward the heel of the clubhead that can also be used for swing weight customization but the Z 585 does not allow for loft lie or face angle adjustment.
Putters with more forgiveness and stability like larger mallets typically provide superior distance control because they maintain consistent ball speed and roll even on mis-hits. Unless you’re exceptionally accurate with your contact point (repeatable impact in the center of the putterface) don’t fall overly in love with the more traditional head shapes.
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.
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.
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.
Remember the Mini came in 12° 14° and 16° models and had a 43.5″ shaft. If you want something like that a custom-fitted M4 fairway might be about right except it will probably offer even more ballspeed and forgiveness.
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.
Players of a certain generation speak fondly of the days when metal spikes kilties and wing-tip designs dominated the shoe market. How quickly these golfers have forgotten the heaviness and off-grass instability of old-school footwear.
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.
Companies like Odyssey Ping Scotty Cameron and TaylorMade produce fantastic flatsticks But it’s also true that there are some smaller lesser-known manufacturers who also make some really terrific putters.
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.
All of them feature the company’s signature RifleScope alignment technology. Happy also focuses on alignment by offering a customizable design. Bloodline putters feature a unique weighting design that allows the putter to stand up on it’s own so you can get behind the ball and check your aim.
