Taylormade P770 Vs Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison Overview
If you are trying to decide between the Taylormade P770 and the Srixon ZX7 irons then allow us to congratulate you.
This obviously means that your iron game is so precise that you need an upgrade.
Both the Srixon ZX7 and the Taylormade P770 irons are aimed at better players who want acute distance and launch control. But which one is better overall? We help you decide in the following comparison overview.
Taylormade P770 Irons Overview
“The P770 irons sport a hollow body design for maximum distance.”
The hollow body design allows the face to float freely and flex to a high degree. The P770’s are forged from 4140 steel which gives them a very soft feel. Balancing everything out is 46 grams of tungsten in the long irons.
On the forgiveness front, the P770 irons have been outfitted with the Speed Pocket and a progressive inverted cone face design. On the course, the P770 irons look and feel astounding. They have a muscle back design and compact shape that looks fantastic behind the ball.
Our mid and low handicap testers had no problem working the ball with these irons and they also mentioned that the turf interaction was smooth throughout the set. One consistent complaint we heard though is that it was hard to control spin in the short irons.
Still, our testers were able to aggressively attack the green with the 6 and 7 irons in this set thanks to the towering launch.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
“The Srixon ZX7 irons are single-piece forged for more control throughout the set.”
Whereas the Taylormade P770 irons have multiple parts, the Srixon ZX7 irons are single-piece irons – and you can really tell the difference. The Srixon ZX7’s feel more solid at impact and allow for much truer feedback.
They allowed our testers to work the ball more accurately, get around hazards that left very little room for error and strike accurately from tight lies. They have a compact shape, narrow top line and narrow soles – the perfect look if you’re looking for player’s performance irons. Also, they are forged from 1020 soft carbon steel.
“The Srixon ZX7 were hands down the better irons for our low handicap testers. They offer more control and the feel you would expect from irons in this class. The Taylormade P770’s play long and are forgiving; but they offer less to better players.”
