Z F45 Fairway Wood
Back in the Game!
The explosive and versatile Srixon Z F45 fairway wood has a mid-size design engineered to maximize launch conditions from all lies. Designed to deliver explosive performance from tee-to-green.
- Dual Speed Technology
- Dual Speed Technology (DST) maximizes a player’s rotation efficiency while also delivering more kinetic energy at impact. This is accomplished with the help of a high-balance-point shaft (Kuro Kage Black HBP) and a heavier head-weight. The end result: More head speed, more ball speed, more distance.
- Advanced Face Design
- An ultra-hot HT1770 maraging steel cup face has raised the COR by 15 points for maximum ball speed.
- Variable Face Thickness
- The face designs create faster, more resilient impact surfaces with added forgiveness thanks to enhanced variable face thicknesses. Thinner heel and toe portions have created larger sweet spots in all Srixon Z Series.
- Quick Tune System
- Fast, simple QTS™ allows anyone to easily adjust the loft, lie, face angle and center of gravity settings. Use the 12-way hosel to tune face angle and lie along with loft. The adjustable weight port comes standard with a 7-gram weight, and 3- and 11-gram weights are also available to precisely tune center of gravity for optimal launch and spin.
- Standard Shaft: Shaft: Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP 60
- Standard Grip: Lamkin UTx Full Cord Red
Srixon Z F45 Fairway Wood Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
Like the driver, the Fairway woods offers Dual Speed Technology, which maximizes a player’s rotational efficiency, delivering more kinetic energy at impact. The steel cup face made of an ultra-hot HT1770 Maraging Steel raised the COR by 15 points for maximum ball speed. A thinner heel and toe profile has created a larger sweet spot in all Srixon Z series woods, up to 35% larger than the previous generation.
Who's It For?
The Z F45 fairway wood will fit the needs of a wide range of players. Though, I find it more on the player’s side than the higher handicap side.
The Z F45 head shape is rounded and on the smaller side, but with a larger face area from heel to toe. With the pronounced forward CG, the 15 degree head produces shots with stunning distance, so much so that seemed more like 13 degrees of launch. Players that have any issues getting the ball up might opt for a higher loft and play it as your 3 wood. This fairway wood definitely surprised me, it might be one of the lowest launching 3 woods that I have ever tested, and longest too!
