The Verdict: Trying to improve on the hard-to-quantify characteristic of feel could have been futile. But by combining a soft 1020 carbon-steel cavity-back head with a new heat treatment, the Z765 irons achieve the type of feel better players seek. For performance, Srixon focused on meaningful—if mostly visually undetectable—improvements like grooves that are larger than the club's previous model. Also, the laser milling improves spin control. The V-shape sole has received an upgrade to reduce turf resistance at impact.
