Srixon has added two new irons to its game improvement line-up in the shape of the Z 355 and Z 155 irons, both of which bring distance, forgiveness and feel in a cavity back head.
The irons are differentiated by the head and cavity design that slightly alters the weight distribution and therefore their launch profile. The Z 355 has a mid to high launch and the Z 155 a high launch, which is more suitable to players looking for extra help in getting the ball airborne.
Having made the choice of launch that suits your swing the technology that is packed into the Z 355 and Z 155 irons is the same, resulting in a choice of irons that give plenty of speed and forgiveness.
Srixon's Action Mass technology, also used in the Z 355 series Driver and Fairway metal clubs, focusses on placing more weight in the clubhead and pairing this with a shaft that has a high balance point to give greater stability to the head and which transfers more kinetic energy to the ball at impact for longer and more accurate shots.
The premium shafts on offer that allow this effect are the graphite Miyazaki Jinsoku graphite or the lightweight Nippon NS Pro 950GH DST.
The higher speed created is translated to the the ball by using a thin, high strength HT1770 steel face in the 4 to 7 irons that results in a higher COR across the face for higher ball speeds.
The body's of the irons have been made from 431 cast stainless steel and have been shaped in a high MOI design, with weight distributed to the perimeter of the club, adding stability to the head for forgiveness and a tighter dispersion.
The final feature of the irons is Srixon's V.T. Sole which has proved so successful in the Z 945, Z 745 and Z 545 forged irons. The V.T. Sole has been designed to enhance turf interaction and trajectory control.
By increasing the leading bounce and decreasing the trailing bounce a "V" is created on the sole profile to help tighten shot dispersion.
