In the mail for review this week were four Srixon Z 585 Irons — a four, six and nine.
I tested the Srixon Z 585 irons out this afternoon at the course. They are as nearly as long as my trusty TaylorMade R7 XDs (still the longest clubs I have ever played), and feel so very much, much better. Forgings really are the way to go in an iron, and if these continue to produce the results I saw today, they are winners.
I won’t be able to give as complete a report as I would with a full set, but a partial Srixon Z 585 review will be here in a few weeks.
Meanwhile, here is some PR material from Srixon:
The Srixon Z 585 irons feature:
- Forged Construction – Forged from soft 1020 carbon steel, Srixon’s Z Series Irons offer a better feel and less vibration through impact.
- Tour V.T. Sole – Provides more consistent ball striking with smoother turf interaction.
- Speed Groove – A new internal channel on the SUP10 face insert within the Z 585 Irons allows for more face-flex, enhancing ball speed and distance.
Srixon Vice President of Research and Development Jeff Brunski says that “The Z 585 Irons are yet another step forward for Srixon as we continue to produce some of the highest-performing irons designed for better players.”’
“The Z 585s are forged with a high-strength steel face for more ball speed – now with an added speed groove for even more consistent distance control. ”
The Srixon Z Series Irons officially launch in North America on September 14, 2018, at a MAP of $999.99 for 7-piece steel ($1,199.99 for 7-piece graphite) for the Z 585 and Z 785 Irons, while the U85 Utility Iron MAP at a price of $199.
