Hot driver leads up newly launched Srixon range

Superstar: The new Srixon driver hopes to build on the success of the Z-star range

Srixon may not be the oldest name in golf but it has earned itself a lot of fans since launching in 2001 – including US Open champ Graeme McDowell and former world No.1 Vijay Singh. Much of that is down to the success of the Z-STAR ball.

Now, they have created an innovative new club range to complement the ball, suitably naming it Z-STAR, as well.

In the driver, a simple turn of a key can change both weight and face angle so it can be finely-tuned to the individual.

They call this the STAR Fitting System, which enables independent face angle

and weight adjustment, offering a total of 84 possible configurations per loft for the ultimate in club personalisation.

STAR stands for Speed, Trajectory, Alignment and Responsiveness, all of which can be dialled in through the choice of shaft flex, loft, face angle setting and trajectory optimisation.

To give added distance and more forgiveness, the Z-STAR driver also features a variable face design, enlarging the driver’s sweetspot by five per cent.

• 460CC Titanium head with mid-flex point regular or stiff Miyazaki 63g Dromos shafts

• Weight and face angle can be optimised to provide up to 84 separate settings for adjusting ball flight

• Increased COR area provides added distance and forgiveness on mis-hit shots

• Lofts: 9°, 10.5°

• RRP: £299
