Q & A
In creating the new Z U65 utility iron, Srixon set out to deliver a golf club that would give players the best performance attributes of both a hybrid and a long iron and combine them into one explosive, consistent package. And that goal has been accomplished, as the Z U65 utility irons deliver the high launch, forgiveness, and distance that players typically get out of hybrids with the soft feel, control, and workability that would come in a forged long iron, a combination that has made this club one of the most popular utility offerings on Tour. The slim, compact profile and sole design of the U65 enable its workability, while having been forged using 1020 Carbon Steel creates amazing feel at impact. That said, a hollow construction also allowed engineers to create a low CG for higher launch, and SUP10 face inserts utilized in the design deliver faster ball speeds from impact points across the clubface. The Z U65 utility irons come in lofts of 18, 20, and 23 degrees, and come standard with Miyazaki Kaula 7 graphite shafts, which weigh between 71 and 74 grams depending on the shaft flex chosen.

Low- and mid-handicap players. For golfers looking to replace their long irons, or maybe even hybrids, with something more versatile and workable, the Z U65 utility irons are going to be a great option. Adding to their appeal for that player is a forged construction, meaning incredible feel and acoustics at impact are all part of the performance package. While the aforementioned playability attributes are likely to appeal to better players, the Z U65s still deliver high launch and impressive distance, which will make them an option for more than just low-handicappers.
Chris Wallace of TGW talks with Eli Miller, Product Manager of Srixon Golf, on the Z65 Fairway, Hybrid and Utility Irons.
Precision forged using the softest steel for a smooth, consistent feel at impact.
High-strength face inserts utilized in the design create faster ball speeds for increased distance.
A new milling pattern and grooves that are five percent larger combine to improve contact for more consistent results in all conditions.
Enabled weight to be redistributed lower in the clubhead to generate higher launch conditions.
“This is one of the most popular clubs in our Tour players’ bag right now. They love the feel of it. It’s a forged 1020 Carbon Steel body, which is a mild, crisp carbon steel for really great feel at impact. This is a face insert made of SUP10, which is a high-strength steel material that provides higher ball speed and helps us save a little bit of weight from the face and move it lower and deeper to optimize launch conditions.”
