What we say...
Action Mass Technology means that Srixon’s engineers have increased the 355’s headweight and teamed it with a high balance point shaft so you swing at your usual speed but the club head travels quicker. There’s also a mid-sized but shallower head with maraging steel face to maximise ball speeds and promote high launch.
A much easier and friendlier fairway to use than Srixon’s F45, thanks to the wider and bigger body structure. There’s no alignment aid on the crown which is a theme running through Srixon’s 2016 range, this wasn’t an issue though as the impact area you’re aiming for is nicely highlighted by a clever groove pattern. Sound and performance are really solid and the overall set up was much more aimed at and suited to our amateur testers and especially Simon’s more rhythmic swing speed. For our pro tester the Z355 was right on the average mark for ball speed and carry distance for all fairways tested.
Not too many golfers want to admit their game needs maximum help when it comes to swing speed and forgiveness. If you can see past the need to play what the pro’s do the tech in the 355 can serious help maximise club speed, ball speed and carry distance.
