Srixon ZX5 irons? Are they for real?

Bag chatter is supposed to add character Steel. 😃

 

I agree with you, they do ding easily. 

Haha! I know but I have almost exclusivly played cast Pings to Titleist. So, I need to get over that and accept the battle scars! I sent my Gs in to have the lie changed and re-shafted but not sure they will make it back to the varsity bag now. Srixon made some G killers!

I love my fat bottomed girls! And yes, they are the real deal. 

They’re real ... and spectacular 

This might get me kicked of GolfWRX:   The Srixons have a great reputation, but they aren't going to change you game... also the PINGs will hold value and you can just trade them for a set

Well after playing these a few more times,I've changed my tune.  The ZX7's fit my swing better.  Hit a lot of low bullets on tight lies and hardpan lies.  The thinner sole has helped my out .  Could also be that I have a heavier shaft in the ZX7's.  I still have some sets of ZX5's with the Modus 105, but I seem to hit the irons better with a little heavier shaft.  Choices, choices???

Check the shafts, I know quite a few people that do not get along with the NP 105 in the ZX5's stock.  It is a shaft you either love or hate, there is very little in between.  Take an iron that is borderline with the ZX7's.  Pull that shaft and install it in the corresponding ZX5 head.

 

You can thank me later.

Like these more each time out. The most forgiving iron I've played that also feels great!

 

I almost hate to admit this.  Been playing with the zx7s and can generate some speed again, and a couple of days of downright hot weather over the weekend combined with something resembling a golf swing and I love them. I really do. Haven't even thought about my other irons.  But . . . I also keep reading people's experiences with zx5 and have that nagging "I'm a 7-8 cap right now" thing in my head.  I know when I'm back to 100% speed will take care of what is a little lower flight than I'm used to, but . . . .  this morning the syrup on my waffles and coffee went to my head and just for the heck of it I ordered a zx5 8 iron just to get rid of the demons (I hope).  Figure I can do some real comparisons if and when it ever arrives, lol.

I have ZX5 5i and 7i inbound to add to the stable.  Was able to hit a buddies ZX5 5i in a shaft that works for me and know it will replace my 25 deg hybrid on arrival.  First 5i in bag in nearly five years.

 

Very happy with my ZX7 7i (that I just discovered was 2 degrees strong from the factory...).  Ballflight even better after adjustment.  I ordered the ZX5 7i not for forgiveness or even height but to see if it helps even out my gapping.  The ZX5 does fly a bit further loft for loft due to bit higher launch and a bit less spin.  I have NO trouble getting the 6i to stop quickly even when downwind.

 

In demo testing, most folks will find the ZX7 feels SLIGHTLY better (more solid with more precise feedback) than the ZX5.  However, on the course, you really can’t tell unless you hit one off the grooves out at the toe - at least that’s what I’ve been told... 🥺
