Srixon ZX7 Vs Takomo 201 Irons Comparison
The Takomo 201 and Srixon ZX7 irons are both forged but there are key differences you should know about.
Find out what they are in the following comparison.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“The ZX7’s are forged from 1020 carbon steel and feature V-shaped soles and progressive grooves.”
What I noticed right away when comparing these irons was that the ZX7’s have no offset while the Takomo 201’s have up to 2.5mm of offset.
So the ZX7’s look more like player’s irons at address. They are also more workable.
Dispersion was tight, and the feel was exceptionally smooth even in the rough.
Takomo 201 Irons Overview
“The Takomo 201’s are perimeter weighted and forged from S20C steel.”
The pronounced offset will make it easier for less-than-confident strikers to coax straight flight out of these irons.
So the 201’s are a bit more forgiving overall. But they lack the smooth feel through the turf and soft sensation at impact.
Still, dispersion and distance were comparable to the ZX7’s (just over 150 yards with the 7-iron for each set).
“The Srixon ZX7’s will give better players the ability to work the ball as needed. The Takomo 201 irons will provide straighter flight and ball speed preservation on mis-hits for mid handicappers.
