Hi all, new to the forum but I promise I have read and read and read on this subject but I'd like to hear from folks before I pull the trigger on some 545/565 irons.

 

So, now that the 565's have been around for a while, can anyone say if they are worth the extra $$ over the 545's?

 

I'm an 11 Hcap (formerly a 7.5...long story) still playing my original G15 irons I bought when I started playing a couple years ago. I continue to improve; should be back in single digits soon.

 

My miss is a slight pull; my tendency is to slightly draw the ball, so wondering about the offset difference between the 545 and 565. The course I play has very tight fairways (sometimes it feels more like rock than grass), so also curious about VT sole improvements on 565 vs 545.

 

I ordered a single 745 9 iron and a 545 8 iron (all I could find). Will almost definitely go 5 series. Couldn't find a 565 single iron to buy and test.

 

Thanks

Extremely similar. Minor improvement in turf interaction with the 65 IMO.

Mostly the same irons, I love the shape of my Z565, if the hit off the toe or heel, you are not hurt. When I hit the Z565 center of the face, it is beautiful...

No performance difference, I liked the shape of the 545's better than the 565's and wish I had not upgraded. Both will perform the same so if you can find a nice set of 545's snap em up. Bear in mind that new version of 565's likely to be out in August/Sept this year.
