What we say...
We tested the Srixon M-Steel at the start of the year, and as it’s going to carry forward into the 2008 range we’ve included it again. Our pro’s initial reaction was one of shock, at how upright the lie angle was. In his words: “It sat more like a putter than a wood.” The result was his shots all flew with a draw to the left – great if you’re a slicer; disastrous if you like to shape shots with a fade. Our shots went a hell of a long way, and the smooth, curved sole made it just as easy to hit off the fairway. If you want to straighten your left-to-right ball flight, this could be the answer.

Srixon Fairway Woods User Reviews
As the Today's Golfer review points out these club really help to straighten out shots if you usually slice the ball. These were the first woods that I have every felt confident enough to bring out on the fairway (previously only used woods off the tee) and was amazed how true they flew from the first time I used them. They have reasonably compact heads but are nicely weighted and the ball just flies off the face. I would suggest only hitting with 70% when using these as they still power the ball into the air on a great trajectory. Trying to hit them too hard doesn't seem to improve the distance but certainly affects the accuracy. Off the tee too they are excellent. My 3 wood is not far short of the driver and seems easier to hit and more penetrating (off quite a low tee). They look and feel the part with responsive shafts and nice grips. Worth a go if you are looking for new woods!
