Cleveland Introduces New Z Series Woods/Irons PDF Print E-mail

 

 

 

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Aug. 27, 2018 — Srixon®, a global leader

in golf equipment and innovation, announces the launch of the new Z Series,

tour-proven woods and irons crafted for the best players in the world. Srixon’s

2018 Z Series officially launches in North America on September 14, 2018.









Z Series Woods

The new Z Series Woods present a revolution in woods performance, delivering

the most powerful suite of offerings from Srixon. The full line of Z Series Woods

feature advanced materials to help amplify your long game. “The new Z Series

Woods are pretty easy to explain: they’re long,” said Marketing Director Brian

Schielke. “Longer than our past woods, and longer than the competition. Our

stronger, faster titanium, combined with cup face construction is totally unique,

totally different from everything out there, and it really shows up both on a launch

monitor and on the course.”


The Z Series Drivers will boost your speed and distance off the tee with the

Ti51AF Cup Face. This cup face is the thinnest, lightest, strongest, and hottest

driver face Srixon has ever produced. “This driver’s faster. This driver’s longer.

This driver’s better,” said Keegan Bradley. “It’s really coming off hot and straight.

It’s very forgiving and the sweet spot is really big.” Featuring a lightweight carbon

crown, Z Series Woods shift the weight to the perimeter, offering more forgiveness

and less offline dispersion.


The Z 785 Driver promotes a low-spin, penetrating trajectory in a tour preferred

look and profile; meanwhile, the Z 585 Driver promotes higher, straighter drives

with additional forgiveness on off-center strikes. The same powerful technologies

that deliver more speed, distance and forgiveness are present in the Z F85 Fairway

Woods and Z H85 Hybrids. Key Innovations Inside Z Series Woods:


· Ti51AF Cup Face – Stronger, lighter and faster. The new Ti51AF Cup Face

produces exceptional ball speed for greater distance.


· Lightweight Carbon Crown – The lightweight carbon crown moves mass to

the perimeter for more forgiving and accurate drives.


· Quick Tune System – Effortlessly adjust swing weights in both drivers, while

the Z 785 Driver allows for additional adjustments to loft, lie and face angle with

the Quick Tune System.


· Premium Shafts – The Handcrafted Project X HZRDUS shaft is a top-performing

tour shaft and is the stock offering in the Z 785 Driver.


“A big key for me is accuracy,” said Graeme McDowell. “I love the bulge and roll

look to this head, and I really feel like I can hit a lot of fairways with it. It’s just a

beautiful looking driver that’s got a nice high launch and looks like the ball wants

to topple over and get max distance.”


The Z Series Woods officially launch in North America on September 14, 2018,

at a MAP of $499.99 for the Z 785 Driver, $399.99 for the Z 585 Driver, $249.99

for the Z F85 Fairway Woods and $229.99 for the Z H85 Hybrids.





Z Series Irons

Building upon the success of our previous generation, the new Z Series Irons

offer tour-validated designs with a soft forged feel. Cutting-edge technologies

that help enhance distance, workability and feel, the new Z Series Irons are

built to perform.


“The Z 785 and Z 585 Irons are yet another step forward for Srixon as we

continue to produce some of the highest-performing irons designed for better

players,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development.


The Z 785 Irons feature a tour cavity, providing additional mass behind the

impact location for increased shot-shaping ability and versatility. The Z 585

Irons feature an added speed groove, which allows for more face-flex,

enhancing ball speed and distance.


Both irons offer an updated Tour V.T. Sole for smoother turf interaction and

more consistent ball striking, while the forged construction from the soft 1020

carbon steel provides a better feel through impact.


“The forged carbon steel Z 785 muscle-backs are the best feeling irons we’ve

ever made, featuring best-in-class turf interaction from the Tour V.T. Sole,

and enhanced control from deeper, sharper grooves,” said Brunski.


“Meanwhile, the Z 585s are similarly forged; though feature a high-strength

steel face for more ball speed – now with an added speed groove for even

more consistent distance control. Outstanding feel, control and distance from

two lines which can be seamlessly blended together into a mixed set.”


Building on the most recent success of the Z U65 Utility Iron, the new Z U85

Utility Iron features a hollow, forged construction for a high-launch trajectory,

soft feel, and unmatched distance. The utility irons offer an iron-like address

profile making them perfect to create the ideal combo set with the Z 785 or Z

585 Irons depending on player preference.


“We already know that Srixon has one of the best forged irons on the market,”

McDowell said. “The stats say that. Tour players choose it, even when they

don’t have to. It sits great behind the ball and has that nice, soft buttery feel

off the face.” Key Innovations Inside Z Series Irons:


· Forged Construction – Forged from soft 1020 carbon steel, Srixon’s

Z Series Irons offer a better feel and less vibration through impact.


· Tour V.T. Sole - Provides more consistent ball striking with smoother

turf interaction.

· Speed Groove – A new internal channel on the SUP10 face insert

within the Z 585 Irons allows for more face-flex, enhancing ball speed

and distance.


· Tour Cavity – Available solely in the Z 785 Irons, extra mass behind

your impact location allows for powerful shot shaping with increased

versatility.


“When I’m putting the club behind the ball I have to be full of confidence

and this club looks unbelievable,” said Russell Knox. “The new Srixon Z 785

Iron is exactly how I want an iron to look. It’s very easy to hit, and I know I’m

going to hit a very good shot even before I hit it. The sweet spot’s massive.”


The Srixon Z Series Irons officially launch in North America on September 14,

2018, at a MAP of $999.99 for 7-piece steel ($1,199.99 for 7-piece graphite)

for the Z 585 and Z 785 Irons, while the U85 Utility Iron MAP at a price of

$199.99.
