Srixon ZX5 Vs Ping i525 Irons Comparison
It’s a battle between forged players irons in today’s comparison of the Ping i525’s and the Srixon ZX5’s.
Srixon ZX5 Irons Overview
“The ZX5’s have a forged face and a 1025 carbon steel forged body.”
The forging gives the ZX5’s an incredibly soft feel at impact whether you strike the ball flush or mis-hit.
The blade isn’t super-compact either so there is a semblance of forgiveness in the appearance.
The long iron grooves are narrower while the scoring iron grooves are deeper to maximize spin control where you need it most.
Ping i525 Irons Overview
“The Ping i525’s have a forged maraging steel face and 17-4 stainless steel body.”
While not as soft or consistent as the ZX5’s, they are comparably forgiving. ThePing i525’s feature tungsten weights in the toe and shaft tip for exceptional stability on either side of the sweet spot.
But the Ping i525’s are more compact than the ZX5’s so there is a bit more workability.
“The Srixon ZX5’s have a softer feel and better turf interaction. But the Ping i525 irons are more workable in both the long and short irons so they would be better if you want the ability to move the ball with every iron in your bag.”
