Srixon ZU85 Hybrid
Who’s It For
Very few golfers have traditional long irons in their bags anymore. In terms of replacing those clubs, however, utility irons have joined hybrids in recent years as a more and more popular option. Srixon has long been a category leader when it comes to the utility iron, both with touring professionals and recreational players. The new Z U85 utility irons are likely to continue that trend, as they will provide golfers with the ball speed, distance, launch, and forgiveness that most hybrids provide combined with the enhanced workability that a traditional long iron would offer, which is a great combination for low- and mid-handicap players.
The Tech Story
Driving the performance of Srixon’s new Z U85 utility irons is their hollow body design, as this construction approach allows weight to be pushed low in the clubhead and to its perimeter to create high launch conditions and improved results on off-center strikes. The hollow body also allows for a thinner, more flexible clubface, which enabled engineers to use a high-strength SUP10 face to create faster ball speeds and more distance. That said, the body of the Z U85 utility irons has been forged from soft 1020 carbon steel to offer exceptional sound and feel at impact. Additionally, the iron-like profile gives players the look they want at address but also the straight face they need to shape shots and control trajectory. Z U85 utility irons are being offered in five different lofts ranging from 18 to 29 degrees and with the UST Recoil 95 graphite shaft as a stock option.
