These look fantastic...  I own ZX7 s and they are in a back-up role so I'll resist these for now. ( Says the Club Ho ) 🙂

These look good, but doesn’t feel like an improvement vs the original ones. Also won’t convince me to trade in my 785s. 

So don’t buy them then. No one is forcing you to move away from what you like, but almost assuredly there’s performance gains to be had vs. the 785’s, and as most Srixon loyalists here would also note 785>no Endo forged, ZX7>Endo Forged

Hubba hubba looking forward to these

Though much is taken much abides;
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

No news but probably PGA Show.  That is typical of Srixon.  So most of us have a long winter of waiting.

I am on the quest for the clubs I hit the best, feel and looks be darned.

These below have my attention at the moment.

 

SIM - Rogue Silver 130

Speedzone Tour Big - Arcane

Rogue Sub Zero - Thump 

Ping i525 5-UW - Project X IO 

Cleveland RTX6 ZipCore 54/Mid & 58/Low+ - Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Spinner

I absolutely LOVE these irons!  Been a fan of Srixon since the 745's hit the market and I was a bit disappointed in the 765 and 785 series.  The ZX7 were really nice but these are a home run in my opinion.

 

The one complaint I have on these is the busy cavity section.  I don't need all the marketing jargon in there.  Customers aren't standing at the shelf saying "oh crap...this iron has Pureframe technology?  I'm sold!".  Get rid of that and keep it clean.

 

All that being said, I'm very likely going to have a bag that is predominantly Srixon once the new stuff drops.

Looking at that face, more spin perhaps

Laser Milling is to improve spin out of wet conditions.  There are a handful of Japanese Manufacturers that do this and 

 Srixon uses Endo as a forging house as does OnOff .

Not sure why you’re being defensive. Also digging the 785…. “gains to be had”. I’m sure if you’ve never actually played them right?

Had the 785 and also the new ZX7 gen1. Not being defensive, just moving on from a relatively weak take from you.

Enjoy you clubs!

Endo forged.

Left hand.

Less offset.

More rounded top line.

Retaining more spin from rough.

Retaining more ball speed from hi to low.

 

I have hit every iron imaginable.

I have played blades for many years.

 

My current zx7s have been impossible to beat out. Most recently tried the T100 and titleist CB. Callaway TCB.

X100 tour issue.

 

None have had the consistency and dispersion.

 

My only complaint is the lofts are slightly strong. I have gotten used to 205 yard carry 6 iron with 6500 spin. 

 

I do think however the irons have a smaller available window in the air.

 

Other irons can be flighted lower or higher.

Or shaped more in either direction.

 

my friends watching me hit these irons have had them trying srixon drivers woods and Cleveland wedges.

I believe someone else in here has the specs and stated that the offsets are identical to the mk1.  Seems the offset makes sense for those who blend with the zx5.  

 

I like the hi to low forgiveness you mentioned.  Thanks for the info.

i am also hearing these are for better players. the center contains more mass as well as the low toe weight has been moved to the high toe side.

Also heard this helps with shaft droop.

 

makes sense... helps a high toe shot more. also hearing that these clubs sweet spot is nearer to center than the previous version, with the COG moving upwards slightly. 

 

likely resulting in slightly lower launch and slightly more spin.

also heard the blade length is FRACTIONALLY smaller.

easier to fade due to weight changes.

 

I have not been this excited about a club since the MP18 SC.

 

There is very limited one piece players cavity back irons with modern lofts.

even less in LH.

 

Mizuno forged looks like a shovel. But the 921 tours were okay.

Titleist CB is 12 yards shorter with same lofts (new release in aug 2023)

wilson staff is getting better but thick topline and ugly cavity

refuse to buy taylormade mc because customer service experiences.

nothing from ping, callaway, cobra is a forged one piece CB.

off brands have cool stuff but difficult to fit.

 

I speculate that these irons are going to be difficult to beat. Anxiously looking forward to the release. hurry up and take my money

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.
       
      Stealth 2 


       
      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
