Srixon Z355 Driver Review
Designed to hit massive distance, the Srixon Z 335 driver comes armed with Action Mass technology, that combines a an ultra-high balance point Miyazaki® Jinsoku™ shaft and a higher head weight (211 grams) to help increase ball speed while promoting a more consistent, stable swing for players seeking longer distance and forgiveness.
The Z 355 driver’s 450 cc club head comes with QTS™ Adjustability that offers 12 unique settings for lie, loft, and face angle. A fast and powerful 6-4 Ti cup face makes for an even larger sweet spot for increased consistency and distance off the tee.
Available in men’s lofts of 9.5°, 10.5° and 12.0° (10.5° and 12.0° available in both LH and RH options) and women’s lofts of 12.0° and HL (15.0°), the Z 355™ drivers have a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $349.99. For more information, please visit Srixon Z 355 Driver.

One factor that the Srixon brand has always seemed to get right over and over again with their metal-wood releases is in the aesthetics. The absence of any adjustable weighting makes for a much more simpler look on the sole than you get with the 746 or 545, but its simplicity and cleanliness lets it stick out in the right ways.
It’s a beautiful traditional overall shape with a very deep metallic black crown finish that is absent of an alignment aid and it sets up behind the ball extremely well.
The head is a bit shallower faced than we are accustomed to see lately (and compared to the 745/545) so it might not appeal visually to the player looking for late deep face, but the majority should get along with it just fine.
Need I add that the sleek driver head has been paired with the very slick looking, and all new black/red Miyazaki Jinkosu shaft, and Srixon has totally created an overall package that definitely passes the eye test.
While compiling this Srixon Z355 driver review, THP spent time with the Srixon 355 driver in 10.5° paired with the Miyazaki Jinkosu in stiff flex.
It is without doubt that both tactile and acoustic feedback are what creates a good feel in a golf clin, generally one more than the other, but the Srixon Z355 for sale comes with a lot for each. To meet sound quality, there is bound to be metallic tendency upon contact, but it is not a reverberating or hollow one. Honestly it’s very addictive and fun at impact, basically because it’s more of a throwback metal-wood (re: non-composite) tone. With strikes across the face the tone actually changes a good bit as well, basically low and heel-side, but it’s nothing overly harsh, just a significant differentiation for those who like that type of audible feedback.
On the tactile aspect of the 355 driver, this is what stands it out pretty much from every other sock offering out there. Typically, the 355 is a stark contrast to the current driver trend of lighter heads and longer club-lengths.
Strixon is labeling this their “Action Mass Technology” where they have increased the headweight to 211g (almost 20g heavier than some drivers for sale) and paired it alongside a Miyazaki shaft that has been counter-weighted to an extremely high balance point (more weight toward the butt-end of the shaft).
The total club actually swing-weights out to a D8, and in hand you can instantly tell that it is “all-there”, if you will. With that said, the shaft pairs so well with its kick/feel-point that while you hundred percent know where the head is at all times throughout the swing, it does not at all feel cumbersome. This is something that is truly could be a boon to those of us with an overly quick tempo as the weight really helped this reviewer keep connected to the drive through the hitting zone. It won’t be for everyone, but it definitely should be a lot of fun for many to try out.
Initially, I didn’t think these Srixon Z355 for sale would be really good but the more I spend on the course with it as well as the monitor/range showed it to be much more of a mid-high launch and low-mid spin setup than anticipated heading into this review.
As far as numbers are concerned, a nice penetrating ball-flight to an apex of about 31 yards on average as well as a pretty frequent 13° to 14° launch angle was seen in the 355’s standard settings. All told, it’s right in line for what this reviewer likes to see (and remember, numbers will vary user to user here, just as with any club).
The Miyazaki Jinkosu pairing plays a huge role in what was seen with the 355’s setup and design with the weight and kick-point profile it possesses. In other words, the shaft felt quite nice throughout the swing when paired with the heavier 211g head.
Additionally, It also had zero issues holding up to 105+ MPH and different moves from the top. Overall the setup proved to be really balanced. It sacrificed no workability and was impressive in its dispersion throughout the testing.
We strongly believe in cup-facing technology in drivers in terms of what it offers for ball speeds on shots away from center mass, and during testing the 355 really backed that up.
Ball speed retention seen on misses was in a very great position overall, experiencing only marginal drop-offs in the data that was recorded, nothing out of the ordinary at all. Plus, as you should expect a minimal more shallow design the horizontal misses held the best results as compared to the vertical miss.
It does bear mentoring that there was indeed a propensity to draw/fade a bit more on toe/heel misses than similar products on this market space, but it was nothing overly accentuated.
We hardly noticed any massive distance jumps via the “Mass Action Technology”, there is very little doubt that those who really battle their tempo and have a tendency to make glancing blows on the golf ball will likely see an improvement thanks to actually feeling the head in their swing. In all it may not stand out in the portion of the driver market that it is situated, but it certainly doesn’t lag behind either.
To end this Srixon Z355 driver review, we noticed that the golf tool has really has been enjoyable. The Srixon 355 driver falls between an affordable price point of $$$ and more details on it and the rest of the new 355 lineup can be found at Ioutdooryou.com.
