Srixon ZX7 Vs Mizuno Pro 245 Irons
The Mizuno Pro 245 and Srixon ZX7 irons are both forged but which are better overall?
Read on to find out.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“The ZX7s feature progressive groove shaping, tungsten weighting and V-shaped soles.”
They look like blades even though they technically aren’t. The soles and top lines are thin and give only a hint of offset.
So these are very much players irons. They launch a bit higher than the Mizuno Pro 245s.
The turf interaction is also very smooth. The Srixon ZX7s cost $900.
Mizuno Pro 245 Irons Overview
“The Pro 245s are forged from chromoly and 1025E carbon steel, feature a soft copper underlay and tungsten weighting.”
They are more compact than the ZX7’s though so they are a bit less forgiving.
But the free-floating face made possible by the hollow-body design and suspended tungsten weighting made for faster ball speeds.
As a result, the Mizuno Pro 245s played an average of 6.2 yards longer than the ZX7s in the 7-irons. The 245s cost $1400.
“I liked the distance and softer feel of the Mizuno Pro 245s. Plus, they were just as workable (if not more) as the ZX7s so they’re my choice for the superior forged players irons.”
