What we say...
Building upon the success of Srixon's previous generation irons, the new Z Series irons offer tour-validated designs with a soft forged feel. Cutting-edge technologies help enhance distance, workability and feel, and the new Z Series irons are built to perform.
“The Z 785 irons are yet another step forward for Srixon as we continue to produce some of the highest-performing irons designed for better players,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development.
The Z 785 irons feature a tour cavity, providing additional mass behind the impact location for increased shot-shaping ability and versatility. The Z 585 irons feature an added speed groove which allows for more face-flex, enhancing ball speed and distance.
Both irons offer an updated Tour V.T. Sole for smoother turf interaction and more consistent ball striking while the forged construction from the soft 1020 carbon steel provides a better feel through impact.
“The forged carbon steel Z 785 muscle-backs are the best feeling irons we’ve ever made, featuring best-in-class turf interaction from the Tour V.T. Sole and enhanced control from deeper, sharper grooves.” said Brunski.
“Meanwhile, the Z 585s are similarly forged, featuring a high-strength steel face for more ball speed and now with an added speed groove for even more consistent distance control. Outstanding feel, control and distance from two lines which can be seamlessly blended together into a mixed set.”
Key Z Series iron innovations:
- Forged Construction – Forged from soft 1020 carbon steel, Srixon’s Z Series irons offer a better feel and less vibration through impact.
- Tour V.T. Sole - Provides more consistent ball striking with smoother turf interaction.
- Speed Groove – A new internal channel on the SUP10 face insert within the Z 585 Irons allows for more face-flex, enhancing ball speed and distance.
- Tour Cavity – Available solely in the Z 785 Irons, this extra mass behind your impact location allows for powerful shot shaping with increased versatility.
“When I’m putting the club behind the ball I have to be full of confidence and this club looks unbelievable,” said Russell Knox. “The new Srixon Z 785 iron is exactly how I want an iron to look. It’s very easy to hit and I know I’m going to hit a very good shot even before I hit it. The sweet spot’s massive.”
The Srixon Z Series irons launch in UK on September 14th, 2018 and have an RRP of £799 for a 6-piece steel set (£899 for a 6-piece graphite set) for both Z 585 and Z 785 sets.
There's new utility long irons too
Building on the success of the Z U65 Utility iron, which is currently the most played utility iron on the PGA Tour, the new Z U85 Utility iron features a hollow, forged construction for a high-launch trajectory, soft feel and unmatched distance. The utility irons offer an iron-like address profile making them perfect to create the ideal combo set with the Z 785 or Z 585 irons, depending on player preference.
