Callaway adds Mack Daddy 4 Raw to wedge lineup

Published

on

Callaway’s Mack Daddy 4 wedges are now available in a raw finish. The company says the non-glare finish is preferred by many of the world’s best players, and we can attest to that as we spot plenty in the bags of Tour pros weekly.

It’s fitting that Callaway would offer the MD4 in a raw finish, since its development was so heavily influenced by Tour pro input.

Reviewing the technical features of the Mack Daddy 4, Callaway’s latest wedge offering includes Groove-in-Groove Technology for spin-boosting benefits. The main grooves are saw-cut and horizontal milled to precise tolerances. The lower lofted wedges (52 and below) feature a 20D groove for consistent spin on fuller shots, while the higher lofted wedges (54 and above) feature an aggressive 5D groove for maximum control out of the rough and around the green.

The Mack Daddy 4 also feature Micro-Positive surface roughness: raised micro-ridges milled into the flat parts of the face to enhance spin.

And here’s a refresher on the MD4’s grind options.

  • C Grind: Increased relief, especially at the heel, making it easier to play shots with the face open. Ideal for medium-to-shallow attack angles and/or firm course conditions. 8 bounce.
  • S Grind: Medium-width sole with slight chamfer at the back and moderate heel relief to keep the leading edge low through impact, promoting solid contact on open-faced shots. 10 bounce.
  • X Grind: The newest grind features a narrow, high-bounce crescent sole, with the low point near the front. Excellent for moderate-to-steep attack angles and medium-to soft course conditions. 12 bounce.

Callaway offers 15 different loft-bounce options available in the Raw Finish. S-Grind: 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60 C-Grind: 54, 56, 58, 60, 62 X-Grind: 54, 56, 58, 60. MSRP: $149.99. Custom order only.

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.
