Srixon ZX5 MK II & ZX7 MK II Driver Review

By: | Thu 27 Apr 2023

Srixon have announced their arrival to the 2023 driver market with two outstanding offerings that are packed with technology.

Rebound Frame is the big introduction for this year, which is a dual flex zone in the head - meaning we won’t lose energy when striking away from the centre of the face.

Both drivers also feature a loft sleeve, allowing the golfer to customise their setup on the fly, which will be exceptionally helpful for some.

Ryan Rastall, Golfshake Equipment Expert, has reviewed Srixon’s new driver models and shares his thoughts below. You can also see Ryan's full video review on YouTube or here.

Srixon’s ZX5 MK II features a larger footprint for increased confidence at address. The ZX5 will also be the more forgiving of the two options, so it is marketed for higher handicappers. Rebound Frame will be the most interesting element of technology, as it looks to retain energy in the golf ball that will help from poorly struck shots.

A 15% larger crown enables Srixon to reposition mass low, subsequently pushing MOI up and increasing the forgiveness of the driver. Furthermore, a weight port enables the golfer to alter swing weight dependent on shaft choice, whilst the adjustable hosel helps provide variation in face angle, loft and lie.

What Ryan Says:

“In terms of the looks behind the ball, you have a nice black finish on the top and it looks really good and confidence inspiring. It feels very good off the face and it’s certainly louder than some of the carbon drivers we have been testing. In terms of the feel off the face, it is very nice.”

The ZX7 MK II is the low spinning option and will typically be favoured by better players. A Star Frame is responsible for the remarkably thin titanium crown, which has enabled Srixon to place discretionary mass to boost launch and spin properties. Just like the ZX5, there is plenty of adjustability, including an adjustable hosel and a toe and heel weight for further customisation.

The majority of drivers feature high COR when struck sweetly; Srixon have incorporated an intricate variable thickness pattern to expand that higher COR area across the entire face, improving forgiveness and reliability as a consequence. The ZX7 features a confidence-inspiring shape that delivers with customisation, allowing the golfer to adjust shot shape by 5-6 yards and horizontal ball flight by as much as 20 yards.

Key Tech:

What Ryan Says:

“The ZX7 MK II looks a little different at address and we should expect lower spin and launch - including a little more distance. In terms of its actual looks, it doesn’t look too dissimilar from the ZX5, just slightly smaller and perhaps more traditional. Good contact and it sounds a little duller off the head compared to the ZX5.”
