Titleist T200 Vs. Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison Overview
For players seeking acute performance from their irons, attention needs to be paid to the details. For instance, you can’t just assume that because an iron set is forged, it will offer you the kind of feel, consistency and performance you need.
You also need to explore as many options as possible to find the right fit for your game. To that end, we went out and tested the Titleist T200 irons against the Srixon ZX7 irons. Take a look at what we found…
Titleist T200 Irons Overview
The Titleist T200 irons feature a forged L-shaped face insert that enhances feel and has another interesting effect.
The forged insert actually helps promote forgiveness on low face strikes. Keep in mind that while the Titleist T200 irons have the same offset as the T100 irons (minimal), the Titleist T200’s are a bit more forgiving.
Our testers were clocking faster ball speeds and better distance on mis-hits with the Titleist T200 irons according to launch monitor data. The Titleist T200’s also separate themselves from the T100’s and the Srixon ZX7 irons with a hollow-body design.
This significantly increases forgiveness and helps with distance even if you have a moderate swing speed. For example, our testers with 85mph swing speeds and lower were still squeezing 165 yards out of the 7-iron in this set.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
The Srixon ZX7 irons have forged bodies made from 1020 carbon steel.
This gives them a soft feel and incredibly consistent performance. Srixon calls the ZX7’s tour cavity blades which basically means that they have a very shallow cavity that almost looks like a muscle back. Indeed, at address, these irons look like players performance irons.
They have narrower soles and a thinner topline than their cousins the ZX5 irons and the Titleist T200 irons. They also played a bit better from the rough thanks to a tapered sole design that gets wider as it stretches towards the toe.
However, only our lower handicap testers were able to get good distance with these irons. That being said, the same low handicap testers were getting much better distance from the ZX7 7-iron: 175 yards compared to 165 yards from the Titleist T200’s.
The Srixon ZX7’s will also give you better spin control from the scoring irons. This, to us, makes them the superior irons even if the Titleist T200’s are more forgiving.
