Could this be Srixon's best driver to date? Equipment editor James Savage reports back after some in-depth testing

Srixon Z785 driver review: The results

When I set this club down behind the ball it had a very classic shape with minimal styling and a subtle alignment aid.

After hitting it for the first time it had a ‘wow factor’ which I hadn’t previously experienced from a Srixon driver.

It has a really fast sound – if that makes sense – and will certainly grab the attention of your playing partners.

It sounds like it has been absolutely smashed.

The ball flight was strong and was giving me some decent numbers.

I think the Z785 driver is going to be right up there with ‘bigger’ driver names when it comes to distance and ball speed.

Srixon Z785 driver review

This driver is being packaged as a ‘better player’ product but I’m not really sure why.

It’s not intimidating in the address position and it seems pretty forgiving across the face.

If I can use it and have success with it than anyone can.

It’s easily Srixon’s best driver to date and I think could get club golfers into their woods for the first time.

The price point isn’t unreasonable at all. And when consumers see that this driver is a good £50-£60 cheaper than some of the other brand’s flagship models, they’ll be liking it even more.
