I love this driver.  I've played multiple drivers over the years and I find this one to be stable, consistent, and reasonably long.  The adjust ability features trumps TM hands down.  The Dromos shaft is very smooth and accurate.  Best driver I've played in awhile.

I own/gamed two W-506 w/diff shafts until the Z-rw came along. Great drivers, all of them. Z-rw being the best of the best for me with stock (no less) SV-3014, Fujikura 66g, stiff. Then came the news about a SRIXON adjustable driver for 2011. I was hooked even before I ever laid eyes on it. I am a SRIXON woods fan..."did you notice?".


That's where my journey begins:



Since I didn't want to purchase without trying (and comparing to the Z-rw) I struggled through my local Golf Town to finally get a demo date with the Cleveland/Srixon rep on Sun, Apr 03 2011. That was 1½ months in the making...!

Received my new Z-Star, Apr 06.....Now, I have to find an indoor/outdoor heated driving range to get to know this "puppy".

I hit 150 balls a day, mon-fri until my home course opened on May 1st....2 wks late b/c of horrible weather :diablo: .

The more I hit this thing the more impressed I am. The shaft on it is a high-end Myasaki Dromos made ONLY for the Z-Star. Dispersion is next to nothing (no more than ±10 yds off target) IF-YOU-DON'T-TRY-TO-FORCE-IT out of the ballpark.

The head is awesome to look at IMHO and, the sound is btw the W-506 (solid, muffled) and the Z-rw (pleaseant, confidence building "ting"). I'm in love with an inanimate object for the first time :man_in_love: ...THEN, it gets complicated....! :partytime2:

I start eating bananas...I hit it like a gorilla and end up playing like a screaming monkey...Not Good! I contact an above average teaching pro (my hdcp has gone up 3 pts within 2½ months) and bought three lessons from him.

First, he puts me back on track. Then, we start tinkering with the weights to fine-tune everything...That's Good!

After my last lesson, I switch the weights around, on my own, to prove his theory. I notice that the heel weight seems to slip past the locking position. Taking a closer look, I see that the weight port is plastic and it is STRIPPED. I took the head back to Golf Town on Aug 08th, they send it back to SRIXON for repair. A week later, Hans/Hanz from customer service phones me from Vancouver, BC and tries to convince me that it's normal. I'm a ret. building mecanics technician (mini ing.) and I am in a position to convince HIM that it is NOT NORMAL. :busted2:  He agrees to replace the driver BUT, I have to send everything back (shaft, wieghts, wrench, headcover ect..) so, I negociate...Golf Town is an authorized SRIXON/Cleveland dealer, I will bring what he wants back when I pick up the new driver, I spent $512.65 (incl tx) and already I'm without it for two weeks. He replies: NO, they must have the whole driver in hand before they can issue a replacement...!  

Fast forward to Sept 08, it's been a month, 4 tourneys later. I'm gaming my Z-rw (re-gripped and lenghten 1"). I get the call to pick up my Z-Star. I went straight from the pro/repair shop to the cashier, put the driver on the counter and got my $512.65 back!!!!!!!! What if in two years, the housing strips. Is it still under warranty? (Like PING tuning weights in the "S" line of irons...I game S-58 and I asked).

It's a great, wonderful driver BUT, IMO, customer service is at the bottom of the pit...And, for that reason: I'm out...From that day on, SRIXON and I are OFFICIALLY DIVORCED!

End of rant!

PS: I won't dare go Cleveland either. :russian_roulette:
