(stock set 4-PW)

Stock shaft: Nip­pon NS Pro 980 (s) Miyazaki Kaula 8 (g) 7i loft/length: 31° / 37”

TECH: SUP10 spring steel faces com­bine with soft 1020 car­bon steel bod­ies for a smooth but en­er­getic feel. A Tour VT sole im­proves turf in­ter­ac­tion so less en­ergy is lost at im­pact and dis­per­sion is im­proved.

WE SAY: With a 7-iron loft a cou­ple of de­grees weaker than the strong­est, it’s no sur­prise the 565s strug­gled to keep up in terms of raw power for our am­a­teurs. How­ever, in the hands of our pro it per­formed very well. With more shots hit closer to the cen­tre of the face it posted a right-on-test av­er­age carry and above av­er­age ball speed. A great pack­age of face tech and for­give­ness which should be on your short list if you’re look­ing at forged irons in 2017.

VER­DICT: Srixon makes some very solid forged irons right now, and if your game de­mands the ex­tra feel and con­trol they of­fer, the 565s are one of a hand­ful that le­git­i­mately can be called “for­giv­ing”.
