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.
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.
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.
In order to make the necessary jump in distance the new Z F85 fairway woods are built with the same speed-enhancing Cup Face design as the new drivers as well as a lightweight carbon crown for higher MOI and enhanced forgiveness.
To remedy that situation the folks at Titleist started the “Titleist Speed Project” a plan to develop faster woods that provide maximum distance higher launch and ultra-competitive performance overall.
