Srixon Z65 Driver, Fairway Wood & Hybrid Make Waves

Srixon Z65

Srixon is making some waves with their new Z65 series of woods. New technologies in each class aim to provide you with more forgiveness, distance, and accuracy. That tune sounds familiar but let’s take a closer look and see if Srixon Z65 series “hangs 10” or “wipes out.”

Srixon Z65 Cutting Edge Technology

Srixon Z65

Power Wave Sole:

This multi-step sole design helps to increase distance across the club face by allowing the sole to bend more at impact. The ripple effect results in forgiveness and provides maximum ball speed and distance. The Power Wave Sole is found in each of the Srixon Z65 drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids.

Stretch Flex Cup Face:

The new Stretch Flex Cup Face increases the sweet spot by 10%. Srixon achieves this by extending the face around the crown and sole of the club. Doing so creates a larger sweet spot which provides maximum forgiveness on off-center hits. You can find this feature in the entire Srixon Z65 wood line.

Crown Design:

Srixon designed a new lightweight crown, allowing 4 grams of discretionary weight to be re-positioned in the clubhead. Moving the weight increases MOI and lowers the CG of the club.

Srixon also incorporates an Arc Support Channel on the crown, found in the fairway wood and hybrid pictured above on the right. The channel design produces higher launch and optimal spin across the face. Srixon makes the channel deeper in the 5 wood and progressively deeper as loft increases in the hybrids.

Optimized Center of Gravity:

The Srixon H65 varies the roundness of it’s sole depending on loft the effect the center of gravity. In turn, the launch height varies and shot versatility increases.
