Srixon Z U65 Utility Iron Review
Golfshake's Owen Davies puts the new Srixon Z U65 Utility Iron to the test and discovers what the pros and cons are of a utility iron when compare to long irons and hybrids.
The brand-new Z U65 utility iron features a hollow construction in a slim profile. Srixon has managed to achieve unsurpassed feel with unmatched distance with a new S20C body and SUP10 face. Like the new Z 65 irons, these utility clubs also feature 5% larger grooves for more spin and control on longer shots into greens. The Z U65s hollow construction also allows weight in the club head to be repositioned low in the head for a higher initial launch resulting in further overall carry.
The Z U65 utility features the same ‘Ripple effect’ that can be found in the Z 65 series driver and fairway wood. It’s the most advanced innovation that Srixon has ever made and offers maximum distance and a more forgiving launch.
- Ripple Effect – Power Wave Sole absorbs more stress at impact for maximum energy transfer and therefore higher ball speed and increased distance. Stretch Flex Cup Face has been extended farther round the crown and sole to create a 10% larger sweet spot area. Lightweight Crown has allowed for four grams of discretional weight to be repositioned for higher launch and increased club head MOI
