Srixon clubs have been used by its staff players like Graeme McDowell and Hideki Matsuyama for a number of months but over in Europe, we’ve been kept in the dark on the details... until now. Srixon has finally unveiled its exciting new Z range of woods and irons this side of the pond and it will be coming to pro shops near you on October 1st.
The Z545 driver is 460cc, low spin and mid launching club that features a Booster cup-face construction, which consists of a strong yet light 450 steel body and an explosive HT1770 face to enlarge the sweetspot. The variable thickness face design means the heel and toe areas are thinner to create faster, more resilient impact surfaces with added forgiveness. The sweetspot is 35% larger than the previous generation.
Distance is increased further through Srixon’s Dual Speed Technology. This technology maximises a player’s rotation efficiency while also delivering more kinetic energy at impact, resulting in more head speed, more ball speed, more distance.
Srixon’s Quick Tuning System (QTS) allows anyone to easily adjust the loft, lie, face angle and center of gravity settings via the 12-way hosel. The adjustable weight port comes standard with a 7-gram weight, and 3- and 11-gram weights are also available to precisely tune center of gravity for optimal launch and spin.
The F45 fairway wood features an ultra-hot HT1770 maraging steel Booster cup face, which has raised the COR (spring-like effect) by 15 points for maximum ball speed. It is also adjustable through Srixon’s QTS, which offers 36 unique settings for loft, lie, face angle and center of gravity.
In the H45 hybrid, the centre of gravity has been lowered to promote a higher, more penetrating launch. An ultra-hot HT1770 maraging steel face has raised the COR by 13 points for maximum ball speed.
Details: Available Oct 1st. Driver RRP £325 in 9° and 10.5°. Fairway RRP £229. Hybrid RRP £190.
Z Series Irons
The Srixon Z series of irons is built to satisfy the needs of two distinct player types: All-Ability and Tour. The slim topline and compact shape in Z 745 and Z 945 irons provide the confidence and workability the Tour player type demands, while the All-Ability player will find added forgiveness and distance in the slightly larger Z 545 irons. The 3-6 irons in these sets feature a strategically positioned tungsten weight in the toe to precisely tune sweet spot position for longer, more forgiving flight in the more difficult-to-hit mid and long irons.
To enhance turf interaction and trajectory control, Srixon Z 545, 745 and 945 irons feature the newly developed Tour V.T. Sole. By increasing leading bounce and decreasing trailing bounce, a “V” is created in the sole profile to help tighten shot dispersion.
Double Laser Milling on the face adds surface roughness for additional spin and trajectory control in all conditions. Tests have shown this unique pattern creates closer distance gaps for shots hit in wet and dry conditions between irons than those without it.
For the more distance-oriented players, the Srixon Z545 irons combine hot flight and feel in a slightly larger, more forgiving cavity-back profile. A thin, high-strength SUP10 steel face increases spring-like effect for higher ball speed. The iron bodies are forged from ultra-soft 1020 carbon steel.
For more accomplished players, the more slimline Z745 features a muscle cavity design and thinner topline for a more traditional look that encourages workability. They are forged from ultra-soft 1020 carbon steel for a superior feel.
Details: Available Oct 1st in 3, 4, 5-PW and three shaft options. RRP £600 steel, £699 graphite (5-PW only). Utility £165.
