For those with the 545/745/945 combo set, is the transition smooth between the different heads? I mean when it comes to loft, ball flight, feel, looks etc

I think for a 3 way combo it's about as good as you can reasonably get to be honest. I held the 6 545 next to the 7 745 and the 8 745 next to the 9 945 and they blend very well.

The shape stays very similar across the set as well as the setup position. The sole width is the biggest difference but they do a great job of hiding that at address. As far as feel goes the 945 and 745 are pretty much indistinguishable on well struck shots to me. The 9 and PW in the 945 look just a tick more rounded at the toe and compact with a more rounded top line than the 745 short irons do.  They look more like a gradual transition to the wedges whereas the 745 9 and PW look more like the rest of the longer irons. I think the 945 short irons launch a tick higher and more arcing than the 745 9 and PW but that's likely the shaft difference and minor loft difference.

The 545 have a similar sound and feel but have a bit more "spring" to them. But for a thin faced pocket cavity they feel really really good. Feel is a little more along the lines of the U45 driving iron with that springiness but it's actually pretty damned addicting to hit them to be honest.

I hit the 6 (545) and 7 (745) back to back into a green at noon walking a quick 9 today at lunch, hit both well and other than distance being different the ball flight looked pretty comparable. But I do think the 5 and 6 545 with MCI 120 launch a little higher than my 5 and 6 745 did with steelfiber i110. But not in a bad way at all.

Long story short I think Srixon made 3 iron models that can be put together as a great combo or used individually to suit a huge range of golfers without giving up feel and looks. Lot of flexibility to suit anyone. I like the confidence of the easy to hit U45, 5 and 6 545 but then in the shorter irons which I usually hit well anyways I feel I've got some really good precise scoring tools with more versatility. And I don't feel like I give up much of anything to get that.

I know it's an older model, but the Z-UTI 2012 is a great driving iron. Up there with the venerable 901 for feel but a lower launch. One happy chappy.

If it's anything like my U45/i95 combo it should be fantastic, seems like a great combo all around

Got my first hole in one with my z945 9 iron today! Guess I better keep these babies around for a while. 😁

Congrats!! Great stuff
I am also turning into a Srixon club fan

I know this thread turned into an iron topic, but I still enjoy my z745 driver very much.

Just picked this up to complement the rest of the Srixon/Thump bag...  They don't make a putter or wedges so guess this is as far as it goes...

Performance is solid feel is very good. Looking forward to a shootout between this and the TEE...

Have you gamed this much over the summer Steve? What are you r thoughts on feel and ball flight compared to others you've tried.
Might be interested in trying a 3w or 4w very soon.

Anyone else have any experience with the F45 adjustable woods? How's the adjustment thingy on these? Did you notice much difference in ball flight with a change in loft?

I didn't notice much difference. One thing that is bad about adjustable FWs and UTs is that the lie angle and sole interaction changes with the loft adjustment.

I very much enjoyed playing it. More compact than the TEE similarly long... Have not gotten out of late, but will pull it out again in the spring and give it a workout...
