Srixon Z 565
Our Review:This iron is the 12-handicapper's secret weapon on the first tee. Your opponents might just think you don't have nearly enough forgiveness in the bag and double the wager. Little do they know that within the sleek exterior is plenty of golf club. It starts with a high-strength-steel face insert that provides superior energy off the face. And don't overlook the slight V-shape to the sole, which increases the effective bounce. This helps players maintain distance on shots hit fat, especially for those who come into the ball at a steep angle of attack.
Specs: 6-iron: 27 degrees; PW: 44

lowHas a nice, light head that you can motor through the hitting zone.
midExceptional feel. It comes off smooth and consistent.
midGreat surprise. Very soft feel. Quite forgiving. Longer than average distance with a medium to high trajectory. Turf interaction was very good. Overall, an extremely solid candidate.
highThis is friggin' sexy-looking. The Z looks badass. The topline is perfect. It's clean, no-fuss, minimalistic while looking sharp. Holy crap this feels like butter. It comes off smooth and consistent.
