What it does: This iron is sure to fool your opponents into thinking perhaps you don’t have enough forgiveness in the bag. Little do they know that within the sleek exterior is plenty of club. It starts with a high-strength HT1770 steel face insert that provides superior sizzle off the hitting area and a 431 stainless-steel body that enhances feel. The quiet hero, however, is the sole design in which a little more material was removed from the trailing edge, helping to increase the effective bounce without having to widen the sole. That helps players maintain distance on shots hit fat, especially for those who come into the ball at a steep angle of attack.
Why we like it: The goal of game-improvement irons is straightforward: they help you hit shots that are hotter, higher and go farther. In other words, they make you feel like a better player than you are without having you notice. This iron does all of that. Of course, to achieve that, you need to know what the player needs. For Srixon, that meant creating an impact-probability chart determined from a database of more than 50,000 impacts from a player-test group that helped guide the artificial-intelligence design process.

“Even for someone who fades the ball, this is easy to draw. The piercing flight is great to play in the wind, yet it still climbs enough to land softly on greens.”
