SRIXON Z H65
Lofts: 2/16°, 3/19°, 4/22° Stock shaft: Miyazaki Kaula Hybrid 7 Adjustable hosel: No
TECH: Lower and deeper CGs in the lower lofts promote higher initial launch, while more rounded soles in the higher lofts promote extra versatility from any lie.
WE SAY: Our test reveals just how different hybrids really can be, but what if you want a hybrid that brings everything together in a single model? That’s where the H65 enters the conversation, as it’s a real blend of a mid-wide body performance with the lowerspin characteristics of a much narrower head. Our pro loved the feel of the H65 and by carrying all his test shots to within four yards of each other we have to say it’s pretty accurate and consistent, too. Chris Jones posted his joint longest carry distance average (with the Callaway XR OS) with the H65 which has to say it’s a blend that can work in the club golfer’s hands as well.
VERDICT: Srixon aren’t renowned for their wood designs yet and with the H65 weighing in at a hefty US$244 it’s unlikely to change with this model. But if you like the look of a wider hybrid, but would benefit from lowering spin, it offers a great solution.
