The Verdict: When you’re in search of ball speed, it helps to have the exclusive use of a super-strong titanium alloy. This strength allows the face to be designed thinner so it can flex more for maximum ball speed. Both models here feature a cupface design in which the face extends around the crown and sole. That construction creates more thin areas on the perimeter to increase flexing. The Z 785 has an adjustable hosel and is geared for better players. The Z 585 features more forgiveness and produces a higher launch angle. Both have a lightweight carbon-fiber crown.
