SRIXON Z 355 HYBRID

CATEGORY: Game Improvement Hybrids
PRICE: $200
WE TESTED: 3 (19°) with Miyazaki Jinsoku graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A heavier than standard head helps generate faster ball speeds.

PROS

PLAYABILITY: A go-to club from trouble -- the rounded sole picks balls out of fairway bunkers and liberates ones in thick rough; powers through nasty lies with ease; somewhat workable left or right, though shots want to go straight.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: The Z 355 keeps the ball in play even out of trouble spots; moderate help in direction and distance means acceptable accuracy and consistency, especially off the tee.
DISTANCE: Honest length competitive with others in the category; a capable performer that produces better yardage from poor lies than many of its peers.
FEEL: When struck cleanly, you get a crisp, energetic sensation; heavy head is stable and easy to pull through the swing; enough feedback with the Z 355 to know where you've struck the face, with little to no harshness.
LOOK: Pulling this club out of your bag is like taking a classic muscle car out of your garage -- it's sleek, elegant and clean, and the head shape is slightly larger but plenty traditional; glossy, metallic black body, red accents on the shaft and white lines on its silver face provide the attitude.

CONS

Not for those looking for extra length or huge amounts of forgiveness; it gets plenty of roll but has difficulty with forced carries into greens; doesn't have a strong presence or go-to skill that helps it stand out from the competition.

BOTTOM LINE: Mid- to higher-handicappers can count on this reliable rescue club. If your swing works with the weighting, expect accurate tee shots and a rewarding smash at impact.
