A review of the Srixon Z-Star fairway wood

Srixon Z-Star
Golf Monthly Verdict

Like the Srixon Z-Star driver this looks outstanding at address and gives the impression it will perform from any lie. The sole design is great for clipping off the turf but won’t be forgiving as some if you tend to hit fats.

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

An adjustable hosel allows for 12 face-and-lie configurations on the Srixon Z-Star woods, while the Starburst variable face design should provide golfers with greater forgiveness.

The adjustability helps create a head that is pleasing to the eye but the sole design will not suit those who struggle to hit woods pure.
