Srixon Z585 driver review (vs Ping G400 and 565)

I've been playing a Ping 400 with stock stiff shaft, and I like it a lot (most days). I had been romanticizing about my Srixon 565 driver and decided to test them again on the course. The Ping won, so I'm selling that 565 with stock stiff Miyazaki. I bought a 585 with the stock HZRDUS red stiff shaft on a whim and decided to do some head to head comparisons. I've been walking and tracking with my GPS on different days and here are the results (if anyone is interested)

 

1) The 585 has a more penetrating trajectory than either the Ping or 565.

2) The 585 appears to be less purely straight left biased for my swing than the 565, which was a left machine. The G400 is more neutral. The 585 does want to draw, but it's more of a draw which I would put down to the kick point of the HZDRDUS Red.

3) The Srixon 585 has a muted feel and a solid thwack as opposed to the 565 which is tin machine. Versus the G400 it sounds more like a carbon fiber driver- it's different for sure and took some getting used to.

4) It took me some time to be able to feel the 585 swinging- which I would put down to the shaft as well. The way I would say it is that it just feels like one piece where the G400 feels like a driver head on a stick. I think I am learning to love the 585.

5) The Srixon as a more penetrating trajectory than the G400, and it's surprising because I thought it would be super high, which it's not. It's mid-high as the shaft suggests. I love that. 

6) The 585 is hot coming off the face. It's worth a couple yards apples to apples vs the Ping, but that may have everything to do with the shaft. 

7) I LOVE the look of the 585 at address. I mean I LOVE it, and I love the headcover. The G400 looks somewhat gaudy to my eye at address.

😎 I prefer the more square look of the 585 at address to the slightly open appearing look of the G400

 

I feel that the G400 is a Toyota and the Srixon is a Lexus in that the Srixon is very specific in design where the G400 is kind of good at everything.

 

The edge for me is going to look at set up, sound and a more boring trajectory (in the wind we play in at the coast).

 

I feel the 585 is a much better driver than the 565 for my game. It seems more forgiving with a much better (less tinny) sound.

 

The driver has peeked my interest in getting Srixon irons again.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
