If these are bent weak as mentioned then the front sole bevel looks ok.  I do not care for that design, but being steep with my swing it should not be an issue.

I think that would be my choice as well- bend them a degree or two weak, up the spin some, decrease the offset, profit.

With the recent photos from Lowry's bag showing the ZX5's, can anyone confirm how much of the cavity is filled with a glue in insert? It looks like it might just be the little chrome strip surrounding the "mainframe", but it is hard to tell if it is otherwise essentially a single forged piece.

Just the middle part has the glued in badge.

When you say middle part, are you saying the entire part I have highlighted below is an insert?

These are going to kill it at retail. Every model looks like a cleaned up and refined upgrade of the previous models. Thinner soles, cleaner looks and new tech added. Well done Srixon

Here in Australia, our premier online retailer is shipping these on Nov 4 with the stock Modus 120 options only.

 

All 4 heads arriving at at least Melbourne Golf fitting Hub next week. 

 

I am being fit Nov 3, so hopefully have detailed in hand pics within 2 weeks after. 

That Srixon ad... Zx7 mkii "For a better feel at impact." Not sure how that's going to be possible, but hey...i'm down to try!

For some reason Srixon have taken the new clubs down from the Aus website. They were there Wednesday and now gone

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

Most performance gains are in design and player abilities, not in what forgoing house makes the iron. Each of the Srixon iron offerings have been solid 

for years.

That's the ZX7, the initial ZX5 default shaft will be the 105 i believe.

My only gripe and it is a minor one is the current ZX7's are quite low spin vs others. Interesting the Japanese site link states +215 rpm, so they have added a little more spin to the mark II. This is a good thing and I can't wait to try them, they might even kick my 223's out of the bag...


I don’t know, they’ve been saying this (low spin) about Srixon for a long time, but I’ve never had a problem holding greens. The difference must be from hitting off mats or just marginal.

Same.  I’ve never had an issue holding greens either.  I’ve played some very firm greens and it was more of a hit and bounce, with a little rollout situation.  4 iron ZX7 could get a little low but, I’ve learned to just plan for it.  Wonder if MkII  will spin a little more.  Sure wouldn’t hurt to have a bit more spin.

    • 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 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.
