Titleist announces new DT TruSoft golf balls and they’re available now

Published

on

Deciding on a golf ball is often one of sacrifices. Sometimes you have to give up distance for a softer feel, or affordability for better performance. With Titleist’s DT TruSoft line of golf balls, the idea is that golfers don’t have to make any sacrifices; soft feel, distance, short-game performance and affordability all come in one package.

When Titleist launched its DT TruSoft golf ball in 2015, it was made to be even softer than the company’s extremely popular DT Solo golf ball — 15 compression points softer, actually — but without sacrificing distance or short game performance. Titleist engineers accomplished this by making a low-compression core with a Pure Ionmer cover, which at the time, were the softest in company history, respectively.

With its new DT TruSoft golf balls, which will also be available in White and Optic Yellow, Titleist is cranking up the distance by increasing the size of its low-compression core — a core it’s calling “TruTouch.” The size increase will help reduce spin off the tee, helping golfers hit the ball farther. The golf balls also have what Titleist calls a new “TruSoft cover”, too, which is engineered for a soft feel and better short game performance in relation to its predecessor.

“We’re meeting more and more golfers who believe you have to sacrifice distance in order to play a softer-feeling ball,” said Michael Mahoney, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “That’s certainly true for many of the lower compression products in the market right now — but not DT TruSoft. When we launched DT TruSoft two years ago, it instantly became the longest ball in the category. Our R&D team has since discovered how to provide even more distance without impacting the remarkably soft feel that golfers tell us they love about this product. New DT TruSoft continues to prove that golfers who prioritize feel don’t have to give up everything else.”

Of course, these golf balls may not produce the length or the short game spin of the company’s premium Pro V1x golf balls, or even its line of NXT Tour golf balls, but each of those options are at a significantly higher price. The DT TruSoft golf balls are priced at $21.99 (MAP), and provide the softest-feeling golf ball in Titleist’s stable. The point is, however, to provide maximum performance in an affordable and soft-feeling golf ball.

The improvements in the new 2017 DT TruSoft golf ball, therefore, help eliminate any sacrifices a golfer needs to make when making a purchase. They begin selling today, September 21 in golf shops around the U.S., and on Titleist’s website.

    Wilson Duo for $20 or Titleist DT for $22-$23? Nearly identical balls, I’ll take the Wilson. Better feel than the last DT True Soft and saves $2.

    Use Supersoft at the moment, but will give this one a try. I liked the old DT solo the few times I played it, but it was a bit too hot around the greens for me.

Mizuno JPX 919 Tour Forged, 919 Forged, and 919 Hot Metal hit USGA’s conforming list

Published

on

As alerted by our always investigative GolfWRX Forum Members, three new Mizuno JPX irons have shown up recently on the USGA Conforming Clubs list; JPX 919 Forged (there is no image of the RH version, but there is of the LH), JPX 919 Hot Metal (and LH), and a JPX 919 Tour Forged iron.

Although still unannounced and unreleased by Mizuno, it’s likely these JPX 919 irons will be the replacements for the previous JPX 900 series. If you remember, Brooks Koepka won back-to-back U.S. Opens using JPX 900 Tour irons; now, it seems there may be a replacement for that iron on the way, judging by the USGA Conforming List.

Check out the Mizuno JPX 919 irons below, as listed on the USGA Confirming list.

SPOTTED: Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons

Published

on

Photos have recently popped up in our GolfWRX Forums of Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons. It’s been nearly two years since the company released it’s previous Z565, Z765 and Z965 irons, so it’s possible (if not likely), based on nomenclature, these could be the replacements for that series.

The photos in our forums show Z785 short irons (5-PW) and Z785 long irons (4 and 3), but it does not appear that the Z785 irons shown in the photos are driving irons, so it’s likely these photos come from a mixed set.

We do not have any official tech or release information about new irons from Srixon at this time, so we’re left to speculate for the time being. What do you think about the photos of these Srixon “Z785” and “Z585” irons?

Check out the photos of each below, and click here for more photos and discussion.
