Srixon ZX7 Vs Taylormade P790 Irons Comparison
When it comes to forged player’s irons, you have a lot of choices.
So to help you determine which is best for your game, I tested the Taylormade P790’s against the Srixon ZX7’s.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“The ZX7’s are forged from 1020 carbon steel and feature a tour cavity.”
The top lines are thin, the soles are narrow and the offset is limited so the ZX7’s look every bit the player’s irons they were designed to be.
They also feature the V-shaped sole which I thought increased my striking consistency on various lies.
As a result, I was getting really tight dispersion on the course. At the range, I was consistently hitting 150 yards (give or take about 7 yards) with the 7-iron.
I also liked the fact that the grooves were progressive: wider in the long irons and tighter in the short irons.
Taylormade P790 Irons Overview
“The Taylormade P790 irons were designed to launch high and provide optimal forgiveness in each club.”
This is evidenced by the fact that each iron in the set has its own unique internal structure.
The Taylormade P790’s certainly launched higher for me than the ZX7’s. This resulted in a loss of about 5 yards with the 7-iron.
But the Taylormade P790’s have a clean look and soft feel thanks to the forged face and forged hollow body.
They were also remarkably forgiving on low-face mis-hits.
“I can see a huge market for the Taylormade P790’s. They are actually more forgiving than the ZX7’s and will help golfers who struggle to get the ball in the air. They’re just not a great fit for me.
I was getting better distance and consistency with the Srixon ZX7 irons.
The ZX7’s are better for players who get more distance from low, penetrating trajectory and who need better spin control from their scoring irons.”
