What we say...



A double under cut cavity construction increases the size of the sweet spot

meaning you get maximum power teamed with forgiveness.  Yonex reckon they deliver a higher launch for longer shots. Expect a deep cavity back, wide soles and offset to maximise playability.


Our verdict:

All three testers thought the Z-Force was the biggest game improvement iron they tested, but that’s no way a criticism. Yes the Z’s got a big bonce but that size increases forgiveness and combining that with decent looks means you get a pretty potent mix. The head did have a strong loft but it doesn’t have any speed pocket technology and yet it still managed to deliver a ball speed within 1mph of the very quickest and a carry distance to match.  Our longest shot came from 1cm out of the toe and 1cm below the face centre which demonstrates how the Z’s certainly don’t punish off centre hits.


Bottom line:

A very strong performance from an iron that we weren’t expecting big things of. A really simple straight forward design that works incredibly well and yet is one of the cheaper models on test.

    Best of the Yonex models for me by a mile, distances were incredibly consistent and above average for me in terms of length. Feel was superb and the steel shaft seemed to enhance performance further.

    Distance wasn’t as high as I was expecting, perhaps because the low launch was combined with relatively low spin. My descent angle was my shallowest by three degrees. I like the look both from the front and back and the flight was consistent.
