Srixon ZX7 Vs Srixon ZX7 MK II Irons Comparison
Looking for an awesome set of forged irons?
The Srixon ZX7 isn’t a bad place to start your shopping. In the following comparison, I’ll tell you the important differences between these two iron sets.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“The Srixon ZX7 irons are single-piece forged from 1020 carbon steel.”
These are player’s cavity backs and the design allows for more weight to be shifted to the perimeter and just behind the sweet spot.
The Srixon ZX7’s feel soft, luxurious, and there is surprising forgiveness from irons that are so compact.
They also feature the V-shaped sole that helps cut through turf. The turf interaction was very smooth and I found I could pluck the ball clean out of the semi-rough without much effort.
With the Srixon ZX7 5-iron I was averaging a carry distance of 143.4 yards. They played long and felt fantastic even when I missed the sweet spot.
Srixon ZX7 MKII Irons Overview
“The main difference here is that the Srixon ZX7 MKII irons have an updated Pureframe design.”
The Pureframe design incorporates more 1020 carbon steel behind the sweet spot. The effects were noticeable.
The club overall felt more stable whether I hit the ball flush or off-center.
The Srixon ZX7 MKII irons have a smoother feel overall. And since my on-center strikes were more stable and less energy was being lost at impact, the MKII’s played longer as well.
I was averaging a carry distance of 147.3 yards with the MKII 5-iron.
“Another difference to note is that the Srixon ZX7 MKII’s come with stock Nippon Modus3 shaft instead of the AMT shaft of the Srixon ZX7’s.
Turf interaction was almost identical. But the MKII’s pulled ahead by offering slightly better distance and a smoother feel.”
