Srixon ZX MKII Irons Review

By: | Wed 17 May 2023

Srixon’s 2023 iron models have been highly popular for golfers across the globe, with each one offering something different than the other. Higher handicappers will be interested in the Srixon ZX4, but the ZX5 performed exceptionally well during testing. Golfshake Equipment Expert, Ryan Rastall, has reviewed all four models and provides his thoughts on them below.

Srixon ZX4 MKII Irons

ZX4 Irons

The ZX4 irons from Srixon are the most forgiving option from this year’s release - meaning they’ll be tailored towards mid-to-high handicappers and those who need assistance to get the ball bursting through the air. The finish of these irons is an aesthetic masterpiece, which will also leave any golfer feeling confident when addressing the ball.

Srixon’s Tour V.T. Sole ensures effortless interaction with the turf as the technology promotes a smooth glide through any playable surface such as fairway, rough or sand. Ultimately, if you’re looking for a set of irons that you can rely on when you don’t quite have your A game, then look no further than the highly forgiving ZX4 Irons.

Key Tech

What Ryan Says

“There’s a little more width in the sole that would indicate it’s more forgiving. It feels pretty powerful off the face straight away and it’s so easy to get airborne.”

Srixon ZX5 MKII Irons

ZX5 Irons

Next in the spotlight is the ZX5 irons and these will typically be marketed towards mid-handicappers. These irons benefit from Mainframe technology, which is a milled pattern behind the face of each iron, effectively increasing the core of the face to provide powerful yet controllable distance. Additionally, they feature progressive grooves, with the shorter irons being sharper and deeper for further control.

The head of the ZX5 iron has been crafted through a multi-piece construction and tungsten weights feature from the 3-iron to the 7-iron. This helps to improve the stability and MOI of the clubs, whilst the Forged SUP10 face provides tremendous ball speeds. The set produces a soft feel due to the main head body being made from forged 1020 carbon steel.

Key Tech

What Ryan Says

“A slight step down in the forgiveness but a step up in looks. The distance is very impressive with these and it’s easy to launch - although nowhere near as forgiving as the ZX4.”

Srixon ZX7 MKII Irons

Srixon ZX7 Irons

The Srixon ZX7 is a players iron that looks absolutely stunning from all angles. It is a forged iron similar to the ZX5 and it features a thin topline and a compact profile that better players will immediately fall in love with. The mass has been relocated directly behind the sweet-spot and also the perimeter. Just like the other offerings, it features progressive groove styling to ensure shorter irons are as laser-like as possible.

The Tour V.T. design on the sole provides fantastic turf interaction and it also helps golfers when they come into the ball too steeply by preventing the club from digging into the ground which can cause unwanted results. If you’re looking to make the transition to a compact players iron but don’t want to sacrifice too much distance, then the Srixon ZX7 could be the perfect club for you.

Key Tech

What Ryan Says

“It feels very good off the face and they feel very similar to the irons I use at the moment (Callaway APEX TCB). I’m not a big fan of irons that feel soft off the face, I like them to feel a little firmer and this one feels more like that.”

Srixon Z-Forged Irons

Srixon Z Forged Irons

Srixon’s full bladed iron has received a wonderful reception from the community so far. At address, the irons feature an ultra-thin topline with minimal offset and a standard sized blade length. These clubs greatly benefit from the V-sole design, which provides tremendous interaction and resistance with the ground. Naturally, there isn’t much game improvement technology packed into this set, so the user should be a skilled golfer who is eager to work the ball both ways.

On impact, a soft feel immediately travels through the hands as the irons are forged from a sole billet of 1020 carbon steel. These will be marketed towards superb ball strikers who are looking for a high-performance set of irons. Featuring gorgeous looks and tour-proven engineering, the Z-Forged bladed irons offer unbelievable control that will bolster any bag they make their way into.

Key Tech

What Ryan Says

“Noticeably different feel off the face but we’re still getting decent distance and flight from it and certainly a nice high draw is not difficult to get airborne.”
