Taylormade P7MC Irons Vs. Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison Overview
Both the Srixon ZX7 irons and the Taylormade P7MC irons could be described as muscle cavity irons. In fact, that’s exactly what the “MC” in P7MC stands for. These types of irons offer a nice combination of forgiveness and performance.
So right off the bat, they would be of special interest to mid handicappers. But what do these specific sets have to offer? We tested them to find out so read on to learn what you need to know about these irons.
Taylormade P7MC Irons Overview
The Taylormade P7MC irons offer superior workability while the perimeter weighting adds a dimension of forgiveness.
Don’t get the wrong idea though, the Taylormade P7MC irons certainly aren’t for beginners. Other than the perimeter weighting which will help keep your shot straight on less than perfect strikes, the P7MC irons don’t offer much in the way of forgiveness.
These are compact little irons that undergo a very meticulous forging process. They are made from 1025 carbon steel which gives them the soft feel that skilled players prefer. The faces are also incredibly consistent.
Repeatable distance was consistent and shot dispersion was tight throughout the set. They also launch very high and produce very steep descent angles.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
The Srixon ZX7 irons are also forged form carbon steel so you get the same sort of soft feel and exceptional consistency.
They also have the same sort of hybrid cavity/muscle back design which imparts a bit of forgiveness to an iron that can be worked every which way. While the Srixon ZX7 irons don’t launch as high as the Taylormade P7MC irons, they still provide plenty of stopping power thanks to progressive grooves that get deeper as you work toward the scoring irons.
In terms of distance, the Srixon ZX7 irons outperformed the P7MC irons. We were getting an average distance of 169 yards from the 7-iron of the Srixon ZX7 set after three swings while the P7MC 7-iron was averaging 160 yards for us. The Srixon ZX7’s also had a smoother feel from tall turf and even from the rough.
The Srixon ZX7 irons and the Taylormade P7MC are similar in many ways. But the Srixon ZX7 irons distinguish themselves by playing longer. While launch is a bit compromised, the spin rates and spin control were better in the Srixon ZX7 irons than the P7MC’s.
