Srixon Z 355 Golf Clubs: Driver, Fairway Woods, Hybrids, and Irons

Technology aims to improve golfers' speed and consistency

The Srixon Z 355 family of golf clubs includes a driver, fairway woods, hybrids, and irons. They are products of what Srixon calls Action Mass technology, the calling card of the Z 355 line.

Many golf manufacturers have approached improving golfers' speed through overall lighter weights, which typically means finding ways to reduce the weight of the clubhead. With Action Mass, Srixon has returned weight to the clubhead, though it's still very light by the standards of years past.

The other part of the Action Mass concept is a higher balance point on the shaft. Using a heavier clubhead and a higher shaft balance point is an approach used for some putters going back a decade.

The combination, Srixon says, results in more mass behind the ball at impact, the result of game-improvement technology aimed at golfers who struggle to repeat their swings. A heavier clubhead and higher balance point, Srixon says, help the golfer swing more consistently and more repeatably.

Following are photos and more information on the Z 355 clubs:

The distance-oriented Z 355 driver has a 211-gram club head paired with an ultra-high balance point shaft. The stock shaft is the Miyazaki Jinsoku, and the design targets increased ball speed with more stability and consistency in the swing.

The 450 cc clubhead is adjustable to 12 settings for loft, lie angle, and face angle and includes a 6-4 Ti cup face.

The Srixon Z 355 driver comes in stated lofts of 9.5, 10.5, and 12 degrees for men and 12 and 15 degrees for women.

Fairway Woods and Hybrids

Z 355 fairway woods and hybrids also incorporate Srixon's Action Mass approach, complete with the Miyazaki Jinsoku stock shaft. Both use an HT1770 face made of maraging steel, which offers superior strength and toughness without sacrificing ductility.

The fairway woods have shallow profiles and are designed to promote a higher launch angle. The 3-wood has a cup face design plus a 40-gram internal structure whose purpose, Srixon says, is to maximize clubface flex, lower spin, and boost launch.

The fairway woods come in 3-wood (15 degrees of loft), 4-wood (17), 5-wood (19), and 7-wood (22) for men and 3-wood (15), 5-wood (19), and 7-wood (22) for women. The hybrids come in 3H (19 degrees), 4H (23), and 5H (26) for men and 4H (23) and 5H (26) for women.

The Z 355 irons, Srixon says, were developed "with the sole objective of consistency."

The irons boast the Action Mass approach of higher clubhead weights with higher balance point shafts and offer two stock shaft options: the Miyazaki Jinsoku for those wanting graphite and the Nippon NS Pro 950GH DST for those who prefer steel.

The irons also have Srixon's Tour V.T. redesigned, V-shape sole, which lessens turf resistance and, the company says, leads to tighter shot dispersion.

The 4- through 7-irons have a maraging steel clubface on a steel chassis. The short irons are one-piece construction.

The Srixon Z 355 irons come in 4-iron through A-wedge (gap wedge). The 5-iron is 24 degrees, 7-iron 31 degrees, and 9-iron 39 degrees.
