Srixon Z965s - Anyone Gaming These??

petep1980petep1980 Members Posts: 15 ✭✭

So in a rather round-about way this summer I ended up with a set of Srixon Z965s. I haven't hit them yet on the course, only at the range, but I am interested if anyone is gaming or has gamed these irons? At the range I noticed they do not go as far as the Z745s do, but holy heck do they spin. I also don't believe I saw Srixon release a 985 this year, which makes me wonder if the 9 series has been discontinued. This only makes the 965s cooler in my opinion.

I am curious if anyone plays these on a regular basis, and if so how do you like them? They just have such a classic look to them and I can't tell if I love how they look or if I hate how they look.

    They’re known to be lower spinning than many blades. They were replaced by the Z Forged this year. Srixon makes great irons.

    I gamed them. Fantastic irons. Easiest muscleback to hit that I ever had. I hit them consistently better and a few yards longer than the 765. More metal behind the impact area and I liked the sole more on the 965. A little larger profile than most blades, which also helps. I also got great spin with the 965. There is no 985, the replacement for 965 would be the Z Forged, but I like the 965 more. They’re very playable. Take ‘em to the course!

    Playing the 945's and just bought a backup set. The 945/965 will spin more and fly shorter than the 745/765 due to slightly weaker lofts in most of the clubs. Soles are also much narrower so there's a difference in turf interaction. Z forged is the direct replacement.

    I play a mixed set with a 965 A wedge. Probably my favorite club in the set. And I absolutely love the set.

    The 965 gap wedge is one of the prettiest clubs. Looks really elegant.

    Where the heck did you find a 965 gap wedge?

    Anyway, I am gaming the 965s, 5 iron to PW tomorrow. I will let you know how it goes.

    I gamed them yesterday. I was an all around mess, but PW to 7 were solid, but 4/5 were awful. I loved the thin soles, but I think I'm back to the 745s until I wear them out.
