According to Brian Schielke marketing director at Srixon Golf the newest line of Z Series woods don’t simply represent an evolutionary improvement over the company’s past models but rather a “revolutionary” one and for good reason.
In order to make the necessary jump in distance the new Z F85 fairway woods are built with the same speed-enhancing Cup Face design as the new drivers as well as a lightweight carbon crown for higher MOI and enhanced forgiveness.
Because the Z U85 features a more iron-like design than typical hybrid clubs it can easily be blended with the other Z irons for a truly customized set. Lofts available include 18° 20° 23° 26° and 29° all with UST Recoil 95 graphite shafts as standard.
Though Srixon has long been known for impressive forged irons the woods were always high-quality products that were often overlooked. With the new iteration including most notably the Z 785 driver things are about to change in a big way as new technologies and materials have brought ball speeds (and distance) up to the level of the longer drivers on the market.
Optics are critical to putting success — if a putter doesn’t allow you to stand comfortably at address with your eyes in a position to consistently see the target line clearly it’s not for you. Look for a model than sets your eyes either over the ball or slightly inside of it so you can see where you want it to go.
