Srixon Z 765 Driver Review


50 Words or Less

The Srixon Z 765 driver is a great driver for the better player seeking a strong ball flight.  Compact look at address.



When you look at their club offerings, it’s easy to understand how Srixon has put together such a stacked PGA Tour roster over the last couple years.  There may not be another OEM doing a better job of creating top shelf products aimed at the accomplished player.  The Z 765 driver is one of those clubs with a sub-460cc club head and a piercing ball flight.



It’s surprising what a difference 20 cc makes in the size of a club head.  460 vs 440 doesn’t seem like a lot, but, at address, the Z 765 driver is noticeably smaller than the Z 565.  Both share the clean black crown and round, symmetrical shape, but the Z 765’s compact size will be extremely attractive to the better player.


Sound & Feel

Despite the different size, the Z 765 driver sounds and feels much like its larger brother.  Impact produces a medium-volume crack.  It’s enough to make you feel like you hit a good shot, but not so much that others on the range think you’re overcompensating.

The feel is extremely solid, and there’s excellent feedback.  As you would expect from a smaller driver, you’ll be able precisely locate your strikes, both good and bad.



True to its billing, the Srixon Z 765 driver delivered a strong, piercing ball flight for me.  It’s not going to turn ballooning moon balls into line drives, but the flight is noticeably lower than the Z 565 driver.

As you would expect, there is a forgiveness gap between the Z 765 and the Z 565.  Again, it’s not night and day, but it’s noticeable, especially when you’re hitting on a launch monitor.  If you tend to hit the ball all over the club face, you’ll want to go with the Z 565.  For the low handicapper who stays near the sweet spot, the Z 765 has plenty of forgiveness.

The version of the Miyazaki Kaula shaft that comes stock in the Z 765 is a bit heavier and stiffer than the one that comes in the Z 565.  This is to be expected since the Z 765 is aimed at stronger players, and this stouter shaft matches the head very well.



There aren’t too many sub-460cc drivers on the market because, frankly, most players need all the forgiveness that they can get.  For those better players that want a really strong ball flight, the Srixon Z 765 will be the rare diamond in the driver market.

  1. Can this club come with a R flex shaft or does that defeat the whole purpose. I am a 61 year old golfer. The smaller head may be just like the good ole days.

    Matt I am eyeing one of these with a Miya 7 xstiff. I currently game an epic with a rogue 75x, am 58 with a 1 handicap and a 105 swing speed. I handle the rogue x fine. Do you think the Miya 7 x is ok for me. There is an s available too.

      There’s no obvious reason why you couldn’t play the X in the Miyazaki, but it should be pointed out that there aren’t any standards for flex and differences in profile and torque can make one shaft feel very different and perform differently from another.

    Great review , spot on. Picked up one used last year, I’m a low handicap 54yo and went with the tour Xstiff shaft. While it’s stiff, its also somewhat light weight and doesn’t affect swing speed. Great feedback (sometimes not the kind you want :-)) and piercing ball flight. I went to a 10.5 from my old 9.5 Titleist. I’m amazed more folks don’t play this club, but I guess it’s tougher to find some of the “off brands” as there seem to be fewer true golf stores in my neck of the woods. Again, your review was on target
