The Srixon Z U65 utility club is a great long iron replacement for the better player.
The space between the driver and the longest iron is often the most difficult part of the bag to assemble. Should you use fairway woods? Hybrids? How many long irons should you carry? Srixon is helping to make these decisions easier with the Z U65 utility iron. For better players, this club can easily replace long irons and bridge the gap to the driver.
The Srixon Z U65 is an easy club for the better player to slide into the bag because it’s one of the best-looking long iron replacements on the market. The top line is a little thick, but Srixon uses mirrored surfaces to make the rest of the club look small. The heel and toe are mirrored, so the blade looks small. More importantly, the backside is mirrored, so nothing is visible behind the top line.
Sound & Feel
When hit on center, the Z U65 feels as good as the forged irons in Srixon’s current line up – soft and solid. When you miss the center, this club is not afraid to let you know it. The sound gets louder and the feel is quite firm. This kind of clear feedback is exactly what better players want from their clubs.
Low handicappers and PGA Tour players want similar things from their long iron replacements. They want a club that’s easier to elevate than their regular irons, but they don’t want to give up control of trajectory or shot shape. Those are exactly the characteristics that the Srixon Z U65 delivers.
Compared to an iron with the same loft, the Z U65 launches higher, carries longer, and lands softer. Unlike many hybrids, however, it’s easy to flight the Z U65 down and shape shots. While it’s more forgiving than long irons, the Z U65 is not as forgiving as regular hybrids, but that hasn’t stopped numerous Srixon staffers playing it on the PGA Tour.
The Srixon Z U65 is not a long iron replacement for the masses, but for the better player, it’s one of the best ones available. It looks great and feels tremendous when you hit it pure. Most importantly, it offers low handicap players full control over their long game.
