REVIEW: Srixon Z F85 3-wood
The Srixon Z F85 3-wood is a great looking combo. The black crown with some visible carbon, the mostly black sole with a hint of chrome and red and only with the ProjectX HZRDUS Red shaft which is mostly matte black with just some red lettering looks amazing in the bag or while swinging. While looks aren’t everything, they certain do have an impact on demos and sales. Srixon nailed the appearance of this club.
The Srixon Z F85 3-wood has its advancements “under the hood”. The carbon crown allows for weight to be relocated for better CG for better launch and spin numbers. It also improves the sound which becomes more muted. The crown stepped also helps with CG and gives a nice visual cue for alignment. The improved cup face makes the sweet spot even bigger for more consistent ball speeds across the face which also leads to more forgiveness.
The Srixon Z F85 3-wood has been a beast on the course. I’ve been impressed by the distance that this 3-wood can bomb it. I find myself regularly waiting for greens to clear on par 5s. There is no reason to layup when you can reach the green and have looks at eagle. While I haven’t hit every green that I went for, I’ve been around the green with very short chips. Off the tee this is a fairway finder that is shorter than my driver, but still long enough to have moderate to short shots left. The Z F85 is an advancement over previous models and can compete with anything on the market.
The Srixon Z F85 3-wood has this excellent crack sound at impact and the ball rockets off the face. It launches high enough that you can carry over trees, but the flat penetrating flight after the initial quick launch stays in the air for a long time and then lands fairly soft. It is a lower spinning combo with the ProjectX HZRDUS Red shaft and likes to fly fairly straight.
