Review: Srixon Z785 driverAugust 27, 2018 Golf Equipment
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: NCG verdict
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.
