Srixon Z 745 Irons
You're not going to be blown away by the looks of the Z 745's, but the forgiveness and recovery shots are a pleasure. The Tour V.T Sole is responsible for this and makes for consistent strikes and subsequently limited shot dispersion and straighter ball flight. This is due to the triangular effect on the sole of the club, which provides a higher leading edge bounce and a weaker trailing edge bounce. Double laser milling has aided the feel and spin, which makes iron play a pleasure. One thing to note though is that they aren’t exceptionally long which I can excuse. But they also suffer from poor workability and versatility when compared to competitors. If you’re in search of something that will provide more of a consistent flight compared to a set of irons that you can work like Seve Ballesteros then you’ll be satisfied with the Z 745’s. They will improve your consistency, but not necessarily knock shots off your game. At $999.00 they are a fair price for the low to mid handicap player.
Pros and Cons
- Superb distance control each and every shot
- Limited shot dispersion left and right of target and a very ‘straight’ consistent ball flight
- Easy to hit out the rough due to the somewhat triangular sole aiding in digging through the slightly deeper cut of rough
- Bit basic in terms of appearance and lacking that sense of ‘modernity’
- Not great workability and not very long in terms of distance

Srixon Z 745 Irons Detailed Review
Design & Appearance
To be brutally honest, the clubs are not the most attractive set of irons ever seen and they seem to be lagging a bit in terms of ‘modernity’.
Some people enjoy the old school looking clubs, but in general they are slightly on the dull side. Clean lines though and a minimalistic structure.
One positive is that they look appealing at address from the top line. Honestly one of the best looking irons from the aerial point of view at address that I have seen in a LONG time.
At the end of the day, this is the view you are going to be seeing the most as you stand over each and every shot so in my opinion this is the most important aspect to consider in terms of appearance.
The Z 745’s do have some appeal in terms of build quality and certain things they’ve added improve playability.
The Tour V.T sole is one, this adds a slightly triangular effect on the sole of the club which provides a higher leading edge bounce and a weaker trailing edge bounce.
A double laser milling is also a quality feature which improves spin and trajectory control through all clubs.
Control / Feel
As mentioned above the double laser milling has made an improved mark on the spin and control, the feel is soft and consistent right through the set and the perfect amount of feedback is given with every strike.
Center strikes are decent and off-center strikes certainly manageable when one feels as though the ball still flies a fair distance compared to when ‘pured’.
Not exceptionally long or workable, but that is perhaps a plus when taking into account they’re aimed at a wider sphere of golfer. Distances are consistent and shot dispersion limited. Very easy to hit out of the rough, which is a definite advantage as most will agree,
Value for Money
One cannot knock the value for money offered by Srixon in this scenario, whilst still better known for their golf balls they have catered for a wide range of player and with the price on offer they are certainly worth every penny for the frequent golfer.
I am one player that doesn’t really mind having an iron that is less workable, but more consistent. I want to trust my shot shape – especially when I have a tough approach to a green surrounded by hazards!
The Srixon Z 745’s provide this slight security blanket for the reasonably good player that is wanting to have the game as easy as possible!
