Designed for discerning players that demand a soft forged feel enhanced workability as well as added distance and forgiveness both the Z 785 and Z 585 irons should make any traditionalist happy.
Featuring a three-piece construction the second generation Q-Star Tour is built with a thin and soft urethane cover for enhanced short-game spin and control as well as Srixon’s third generation Spin Skin coating for optimum spin in all scoring situations.
The JPX 919 Tour is available in 3-PW in right hand only and can be fitted with a wide variety of premium no-upcharge shafts and grips.
None of the above matters if you can’t aim your putter correctly Experiment with offset and straight-in hosels — you’ll definitely aim one type better than the other. Then check the alignment marks. Do you prefer lines that run parallel to the target? How many lines? These are important questions that can best be answered through a proper fitting.
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.
However it’s also fair to say that the company’s handsome big sticks were somewhat known for being a bit shorter than those of some competitors due to slightly higher spin rates and a design aimed at more control.
One of the somewhat surprising successes for Srixon in recent years was the Z U65 utility iron which very nicely blended the distance and versatility of a hybrid with the added control of an iron.
Most players are content to use an off-the-rack putter or rarely consider having it customized for their build or stroke. We get it — putting is a slow-motion task that lacks the dynamics of lashing long-irons and woods.
In addition both models feature an improved version of Titleist’s Active Recoil Channel technology in the sole creating more face flex particularly on low hits yielding higher launching lower spinning longer shots.
The Z 785 driver is revolutionary for Srixon for a number of reasons but mostly because it produces up to 3 mph more ball speed than the previous model yielding up to ten more yards of total distance. The key to the impressive improvement is a new Ti51AF Cup Face which is lighter and significantly stronger allowing it to be made 10% thinner for more COR and ball speed at impact.
The JPX 919 Forged is available in 4-GW in both right and left hand options with a wide variety of premium no-upcharge shafts and grips.
Also new in the Z woods family are the Z 585 driver a non-adjustable model with the same distance-inducing technologies as the Z 785 as well as Z F85 fairways and Z H85 hybrids.
