Srixon Z785 Vs Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison
Forged Srixon irons are generally great but different models offer different advantages.
See which of these Srixon irons fits your game best in the following comparison overview.
Srixon Z785 Irons Overview
“The Srixon Z785 irons are constructed very similarly to the Srixon ZX7’s.”
For instance, the Srixon Z785 irons are single-piece forged from 1020 carbon steel just like the Srixon ZX7 irons.
The Z785’s also have the V-shaped sole that the Srixon ZX7’s have.
The main difference is in the cavity back design. The Z785 irons have a much more traditional (but still understated) cavity back look.
During testing, I found that the Z785’s were way more workable than your average cavity backs.
The traditional cavity coupled with the compact design allowed me to hit knock-downs, straight burners and high fades with no problem.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“Compared to the Z785’s, the Srixon ZX7 irons have a more modern cavity back design.”
They look very nice; but they almost have a futuristic aesthetic. They are not quite as compact as the Z785 irons either.
The Srixon ZX7’s are single-piece forged; but they have tungsten weights in the heels and toes.
More weight is allocated to the area just behind the sweet spot for more power behind your pure strikes.
I found that the Srixon ZX7’s played about 4 yards longer for me than the Z785 irons. However, workability was significantly diminished.
While the progressive groove design of the Srixon ZX7’s improved spin conditions in both short and long-game scenarios, it took more work for me to move the ball side-to-side.
“If you want a dash of forgiveness with a heaping helping of workability, the Srixon Z785 irons are for you. If you prefer distance and stabler ball flight, the Srixon ZX7’s are better.”
