TECH: A new stepped crown de­sign low­ers CG to pro­mote higher launch­ing shots with lower spin to help max­imise carry dis­tance.

WE SAY: A fair­way that fits nicely into the lower, more pen­e­trat­ing flight cat­e­gory. The F65 was one of the low­est-spin­ning clubs we tested, so re­al­is­ti­cally it’s go­ing to be more at­trac­tive to stronger golfers, who have no is­sue launch­ing shots off the deck. Our test pro liked the F65 a lot, like most of Srixon’s clubs this year, but even he thought the gen­er­ous sized head looked more de­mand­ing to hit. A carry dis­tance just a yard short of the very long­est and a ball speed 1mph slower than the quick­est means the F65 is more than ca­pa­ble of com­pet­ing against the very best – in the right hands.

VER­DICT: We reckon the F65 is more pun­ish­ing on off-cen­tre hits than some of the com­pe­ti­tion, but we can’t take any­thing away from its pow­er­ful per­for­mance. If you only carry one fair­way wood in your bag the 17° 4-wood seems like an ex­cel­lent op­tion to use from the fair­way and tee.
