New Srixon ZX7 MKII irons – 2022 Shriners Children's Open


Recommended Posts

Went for fit intention was to get mixed set zx4 /5 

only had 7 iron in each and shaft 1 in shorter than mine 

zx4 was nice looked very neat not much different in sole width or offset to my 545 

feel ok sound not cocky 

went to zx5 feel much softer and height and distance not greatly different to zx 4 

so ordered zx 5 in 6- p w 

gor t a xxio 6 hybrid at bottom end 

the new irons are definitely slimmer particularly the zx 4 compared to previous models 

blending very easy between all models 

2- 3 weeks till built 

interestingly had tried 923 h m hl 

also gave me little advantage in terms of height carry 

mizuno guy said to stick to mine 

I feel the zx 5 will provide the beautiful feel I have with the 545 

a little more carry,distance and forgiveness

I'm sure this has been discussed many times, but if someone could indulge my laziness, when is it expected that these irons will be released?

How does the MK II compare to the originals in terms of forgiveness?

Is it safe to say they´ve moved slightly towards better players in the ZX5 and ZX7 especially as was rumored pre release?

Will be interested to hear opinions on this as well. It sure looks like they got a little more CB than the past with more weight behind the sweet spot.

As much as I want to hit these I just cannot get along w/ the v sole.

I'm neutral to steep AOA and I feel the same way. I loved the way my ZX7's forging felt , but I could always feel that V Camber getting through the turf a little more difficult. On half and 3/4 shots and harder surfaces it really showed,  sometimes hitting a groove or so low. 

If the V sole was a little more mellowed out , It'd work better for me.

This is so interesting to read. I had the exact opposite experience.  I have traditionally been very steep into the ball and have always struggled with irons that felt very sluggish through the turf.  When I first started playing the Srixons (z785s), there was a definite adjustment period.  I felt like I was sweeping the ball off the turf with those irons and not compressing the ball the way I like, but I would look down to find a perfect divot and look up to find the ball heading right at the flag with the proper distance and trajectory. I hit so many shots dead at the flag that it was alarming!  If I'm being honest, the Z-series doesn't suit my eye.  I prefer a slimmer topline, so I keep getting rid of the Srixons in favor of irons that look better to me.  I keep coming back to them, though, because they just play so much better than anything else for me.

Have you tried the Z-Forged? Slimmer topline and sole but overall size similar to ZX7.

I have not, but probably should.  I love everything about the "7 series" except the topline.  I moved away from the ZX7s recently in favor of some PXGs, and then another set of PXGs, and now a set of Callaways.  All very nice irons, but none perform like the srixons for me.  Will definitely be moving back into a set of either the ZX7s or Z-forged after the new year.  They perform too well for me to ignore.

Anxiously awaiting direct comparisons. Some ridiculous deals for current ZX7’s, but want to hear about improvements (if any).

These pics are the 6 iron. Got a pic there showing the topline at my address for those wondering if it's too thick or not.

 

I have played ZX7 with DGX100 for the last 2 years and they were fantastic, but after hitting 50 or so balls with these today, I believe they are an improvement worth going after. They feel incredible, I can't imagine how another product could feel any better out of the middle. Having said that they are an improvement, it must also be said that i'm out of DGX100 and into PX LZ6.5 and the I am loving them, so no doubt there's something in that. 

 

All in all, I couldn't be happier with my gamers for at least the next 2 years.

So what makes them that much better than the ZX7? Is it just a feel thing or other aspects that make them better? I've been using the ZX7 for 2 years as well and trying to decide if I want to make the jump but I think the ZX7 feels great already.

I initially felt like there is a larger sweet spot. Or rather less drop off in performance on a partial centre strike. 

 

The design of mass placement is noticeably different in the MKii. You can see it much more gradually distributed up the back of the face in this side by side shot of the original and MKii 8 irons. There is a decent bit of mass further up the face than the original, which I believe was noticeable.

Nice. It definitely looks like there is more mass on the back of the club where you'd want it so that intrigues me. I'll probably go do a fitting again before pulling the trigger. It's been two years with my ZX7 with DG 120 shafts and my swing has changed a bit so different shafts may fit me better but definitely want to do a comparison between the old and new ZX7.

Thanks for the pictures. This is from a WRX article with Srixon when the Zx7 irons came out: "The other upgrades in the design are all thanks to the new tour cavity, which puts the sweet spot closer to the scoreline center and offers improvements to hi/low MOI for greater consistency."

It will be interesting to see if the new Zx7's will be much of an improvement.

Hit the new ZX5 driver today as well as took at look at the new ZX7ii irons.

Is it a big enough of an upgrade in terms of tech? Not too sure, looked to be a bit smaller profile, a littler better offset and weight placement, and what may have also been a slightly refined sole.

I think this will pick up any Srixon player who wanted the above or 785 holdouts

I just ordered a set of ZX7s MKII 4-PW from Golf box in Australia on Cyber Monday for $955 USD since they were having a site wide deal.

 

Will deliver here in the USA this coming Monday. Seems like a good deal for clubs that won’t release here until January!

 

 

 

Nice. What was the damage on the overseas shipping?

That iron is such a beautiful shape.  Love the sharp but not too sharp toe.  Also really like the frame.  Elegant.

Definitely give the Z forged a whirl.  I couldn’t get long with the zx7 but the z forged has been great.

Thanks for the above info on this website! I checked out the websites of the Australian golf superstores and I found/ordered my new ZX7 MkII irons with Modus pro 120 stiff shafts this morning from GolfBox there. Already have the DHL tracking number and they should be here to me in the Seattle area by Monday. The US dollar is very strong: $1.00US was $1.50AU this morning when I ordered. Even though shipping was $63US, I got a beautiful deal @ $138US  per iron all-in. And I'll have them next week.

    • 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.
