A shock absorbing gel and strategically-placed nickel weights feature in the latest 601 irons being launched by the Alton-based club-makers, Srixon Sports Europe.
The WS (weight optimization and shock absorption) system, claims to promote greater distant, accuracy and feel and is also incorporated into the latest Z-Ti driver, M-steel fairway metals and AD hybrids.
The new irons aim to encourage higher launch and lower spin - with weights, a thinner face and under cut sole as well as more forgiveness and stability with the gel. Recommended price is £469 with graphite shafts or £349 for steel (4-iron to sand wedge, regular or stiff shaft). Prices for women (5-SW) are £399, right hand only.
WS technology also features in the new Z-Ti 460 cc driver launched at the Golf Europe trade show in Munich in October, with weights placed according the loft to keep the clubface square. Loft options for men are 9.5 (stiff) and 10.5 and 11.5 (regular) and 13 (women). Shaft is the SV3006 graphite and recommend price is £199.
Completing the Srixon line-up is the M-steel fairway metal with either 15 or 18 degrees of loft (£149) and the AD hybrid available in 19, 22 and 25 degrees for men and 22 and 25 degrees for women. Price is £99.
