(stock set 4-PW)

Stock shaft: Nip­pon NS Pro Mo­dus3 Tour 120 (s)

7i loft/length: 32° / 37”

TECH: A mus­cle cav­ity which blends a players’ pro­file with the for­give­ness of a cav­ity back. The 1020 car­bon steel heads are heat­treated to de­liver the smoothest forged feel.

WE SAY: We’ve known for years that Srixon makes great balls, but it’s only over the last few that we’ve gained a real re­spect for their forged irons, too. They’re fan­tas­tic. Our pro said the Z765s were among his favourites and he’d hap­pily slip them in his bag. With a 7-iron 2° stronger

(loft) than many on test it’s no sur­prise the 765s car­ried shots to within 3 yards of the long­est on test. Ball speed was over a 1mph faster than our av­er­age, too, and a tiny drop-off of four yards of carry and 251rpm of spin be­tween shots sug­gest a very con­sis­tent across-the­board per­for­mance iron.

VER­DICT: The Ja­panese pour over ev­ery de­tail and it’s this that makes th­ese irons stand out. Laser face milling, a beau­ti­ful satin and pol­ished fin­ish, the sole de­tail­ing, a new heat treat­ment to im­prove feel and grooves that are just a tiny bit big­ger... Bril­liant.
