I had the z785 and it was great. Most forgiving Player's CB I ever hit.

 

Switched to the Z-Forged and was shocked to find it wasn't much less forgiving at all. It's a big club, larger than some CBs out there. Just keep that in mind. These Srixon clubs are a cut above.

I’ve had 745s for 10 years. Strayed to play the 785s and ZX7s and just sold both to go back to my 745s. The sole is perfect the heads are a little more compact and they are just as forgiving as anything. The new models have just gotten too big for my taste. 


didn’t they come out in 2014? Regardless I’m still gamin z745 just playing a round today and really have no inclination to switch even tho some have rust scars on the soles. I have a set z785s waiting their turn but at this point they’re gonna wait a while haha

The Z-Forged really are easy to hit, aren't they? I hadn't really noticed the large head size, but now you mention it, I suppose it is quite big.

I think my Z-Forged irons are easily as big (if not bigger) than stuff like the Titleist CB and T100 which is mind-blowing. 

 

TBH, I don't get the purpose of a CB if it's going to be tiny. At some point you might as well just play the blade. 

 

These Z-Forged irons are very playable. I can't honestly say there's much difference in the 6-Pw that I have versus the z785 set I had for a couple years prior. Whichever you prefer to hit and look at is the set you should get. Playability isn't far apart. 

 

Maybe people don't need a 3i, 4i or 5i in the blade but look at me, I've got the driving irons there and it's working great.

Yeah I think that’s about right.  I was thinking they came out in 2013 but you catch my drift.  Just trying to point out that despite the new models coming along they are still relevant in terms of their looks and performance.   I just haven’t found anything in the last few years that check all the boxes that the 745s do.

Always intrigued by this statement. I had the z785 and LOVED them and of course sold them for something new and now want them back😂. But after looking at all the 7 series, I always thought the 785 seemed to be the thinnest out of them all. Would you say 745 is more compact?

I can’t say for certain as I haven’t measured anything but to my eye the 745 appears to have a shorter blade length and height, slimmer top line less offset but a wider sole.  The toe of the 745 is a little more squared off than the 785 or ZX7 which I prefer.

Like i mentioned I play z745 and have z785 waiting in the wing and I can tell you all those characteristics are minimal at best. I would need my calipers from work to see a measured difference mainly it’s the sole like you mentioned the biggest difference and the look at address with the squared off toe. In terms of feel I remember an older post mentioning that z745 were endo forged and z785 weren’t but I can’t discernibly tell the difference either. Probably main playing difference is the thinner sole of the z785 can cut through the rough a little better than the z745. Love em both

Yup I could see that. The soles on the 745 always seemed large to me. I fell in love with the 785 because they played like a forgiving players iron. The sole was perfect for me because it has the v sole but also was thin so it was kind of best of both worlds for me. I sold them a bit ago and just picked up a set yesterday! Excited to have them back In the bag.

Longer heel to toe than 745, but slightly thinner topline. Z-forged look great at address.

I have had combo sets of the 6, 8, and ZX series, and a set of 585s and the 945 blades.  Asking me to pick a best is like asking me to pick my favorite child, you can't as they are all great in their own way....

It's either the 745 or the ZX7.  

 

I have had them all.  745, 545 Combo.  765, 565 Combo, 785, 585 Combo and now ZX7 and ZX5 combo.

 

I played the 745, 545 combo forever.  Had a set of the next two iterations, but they weren't as good and they all were sold.  The ZX combo set has been in the bag since they came out, and while I may buy a back-up bag of something else to tinker with, the ZX series are staying as my gamers for the foreseeable future.
