Playability

Piercing flight that gets up with ease and keeps its head in the wind; the 13.5° is a strong stand-in for a driver, while the 4- and 5-woods excel at launching shots from the turf and from tricky spots; many testers default to straight or a soft draw, but the head allows for power fades, too.

Distance

All the length you need for most situations; in-line with what several guys have in their bags; one or two testers notice a jump in yardage on all hits.

Cons

A few testers struggle to hit the 3-wood effectively off the deck; one or two guys overswing with the lighter shaft; less forgiveness than some others.

Bottom Line

The Srixon Z F65 can be a reliable, accurate weapon in the right hands. Better players looking for a driver replacement or versatile woods off the turf would do well here.
