New irons...which do you like better?


Recommended Posts

I am considering some new irons this season and I have narrowed down my search to these irons. Cobra King Tour (MIM), Srixon ZX7, and the Titleist T100s seem to be the front-runners at this time. 

 

I am currently playing the Miura CB 57s, and I LOVE them, especially the turf interaction,  but alas I love new shiny things. I also wouldn't mind a smidge more forgiveness.

 

Obviously I am going to hit them all, but I am curious to hear opinions of people who have them in play. I can't wait for the snow to melt! Thanks!

Had the Miura CB-57s and used them for 5 years.  Got a set of Srixon Z745s a couple years ago and used them consistently but still kept the CB-57s just in case.  Recently got the ZX7s and immediately

If I didn't love my Nikes, a Srixon combo set (if not straight zx7) would be in my bag, I think. But there is an almost local shop I'm waiting to try first (April is lefty release I hope).

I don’t think you can beat what you have... but if you want to try and you’re steep Srixon is unbeatable. I’m -5 to -7 with a 7 iron and the v sole makes a big difference.

I just hit a bunch of players cavity-style irons (zx7, t100, iBlade, etc.) and the I thought all were very forgiving and felt wonderful. Probably couldn't go wrong if I just closed my eyes and picked one at random. However, with my eyes open.......I loved everything about the Srixon zx7 irons.  Visually they're beautiful at address, the cavity has some unique designs but very likeable once you see it in person. The feel was great. I like how they're somewhat strong lofted but far from distance irons (I'm coming from Nike VR Pro blades which have weak lofts).

Had the Miura CB-57s and used them for 5 years.  Got a set of Srixon Z745s a couple years ago and used them consistently but still kept the CB-57s just in case.  Recently got the ZX7s and immediately sold the CB-57s.  Still have the Z745s for now but will likely move them soon as the ZX7s are just much better than the other sets.  Should mention that I had KBS Tours in the CB-57s and Modus 120s in both Srixon sets in case you want to explore shaft options but I still think with the same shafts the ZX7s are superior.

I vote for staying with Miura CB 57s.  They are fine irons.  You're not going to find comparable quality player irons unless you go with 620 CB's, except they are not very forgiving.  Which brings me to your need for more forgiveness than what you have in 57s.   

 

Srixon ZX7's look nice, but don't like having to adjust to offset.

Give the new level PF2’s a swing.   Their demo program is awesome.

I do not like offset that much. That is one of the reasons the Cobra's made the list. I have heard they have little. I do LOVE the CB 57s!

I took a look at the Cobra's specs.  Offset is a bit more than my 620CBs, a lot more than my 620MBs, and their lofts are 2* stronger than my irons.   Good luck with the decision.

I like the idea of a combo ZX5/ZX7 set of Srixon's - get the forgiveness boost where you need it most.

 

Since I got my Nike combos, for me it makes sense. I am pretty damn good from 7 up, but help in the 3 and 4 really comes in handy. But a lot of folks seem to think there isn't a ton of difference in forgiveness and that's why all 7's.

 

No idea when I will get a chance to hit either at the moment.

I hit all three  at a fitting last week but T100S instead of regular because the 7-iron lofts aligned.  Visually I was a fan of the Titleist and Srixon over the MIM.  Srixon had better ball speeds than T100 and MIM but T100 launched in my preferred window.  Spin was consistent between all 3.  To be honest, I could have gone home with any of them and put them on the course that day.  In the end, I did the most non-WRX thing ever and just had my loft and lie checked on my current gamers as they were a bit better than anything shiny and new.
