Ping i59 Vs. Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison Overview
If you are a mid to low handicapper looking for irons that can keep up with your evolving game, pay close attention to the next article because today we will be comparing the Ping i59 irons to the Srixon ZX7 irons.
The Srixon ZX7 irons have been used by some of the top pros in the game but Ping irons can be seen on Tour often as well. So let’s take a look at what differentiates these irons from one another.
Ping i59 Irons Overview
The Pingi59 feature multi-material construction and interesting forgiveness features for irons in this category.
First of all, these are muscle back blades and they look amazing. At address, the thin topline and narrow sole will appeal to mid and low handicappers. The faces are made from laser-cut stainless steel and the bodies are 1025 mild carbon steel.
This not only gives them a smooth, buttery feel; but it also increases flex and distance. The combination of materials makes these irons flex more like a fairway wood or driver. They are also perimeter weighted in the toe and tip of the shaft so MOI is very good in these irons.
They have a stable, consistent feel as well. They are also produce a very flighted launch with the 9-iron clocking in at an impressive 42 degrees.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
The Srixon ZX7 irons were forged from dingle billets of 1020 carbon steel.
After testing these irons, we could see why pros use them. They offer you the kind of feel you need when the pressure to perform is on. They are also surprisingly forgiving. While the blades aren’t very long and there isn’t much offset, the perimeter weighting still helps keep your ball on the fairway.
The loft characteristics are slightly weaker than the Ping i59 but they still allow for really good stopping power even on long approaches. The tapered sole that gets a bit wider out towards the toe feels nice and helps the club head sort of float above the turf. The long and mid irons also feature tungsten weighting in the toe to help straighten out errant strikes.
The stopping power of both of these sets is impressive and will be just what better players are looking for. The Srixon ZX7 irons were a bit more consistent though. They also performed better from tight lies.
