That technology works in the same way that the cup face technology in the new Z785 driver does, by providing a solid platform for ball striking.
The decision to move the muscle in the cavity from previous versions of these irons has also produced a higher launch trajectory, which will benefit players who struggle for height – particularly on longer shots.

The ZU85 Utility iron, Srixon’s driving iron option, can also be used in conjunction with the Z585s and added to your bag.
