Titleist T350 Vs Srixon ZX5 Irons Comparison
The Titleist T350 and Srixon ZX5 irons can both produce a lot of distance.
But which one is better overall? Read on to find out!
Titleist T350 Irons Overview
“The T350’s are Titleist’s attempt at making a user-friendly, long, game improvement iron.”
The Titleist T350’s are quite a departure from the Titleist irons I’m used to seeing. They have long blades and moderate offset to enhance the overall forgiveness.
They have a hollow body design with a forged face which work together to produce impressive distance.
With the Titleist T350 5-iron I was averaging. 144.3 yards. But the trajectory was a bit too low in the short irons and I couldn’t seem to grip the ball too well.
It seems the Titleist T350’s were built primarily for distance and forgiveness – as evidenced by the tungsten perimeter weighting.
Srixon ZX5 Irons Overview
“The Srixon ZX5 irons also have tungsten in the heel and toe to improve forgiveness.”
The ZX5’s have a similar profile to the T350’s so they are inherently forgiving. But they also have variable face thickness which makes the entire face viable.
Even on mis-hits, I was getting about the same 144 yard distance with the ZX5 5-iron.
The ZX5 irons also feature progressive groove design. Irons 3-7 have wider grooves while 8-PW have narrower, deeper grooves.
This allowed for better short game spin control compared to the Titleist T350 irons. Turf interaction between these two irons was almost indistinguishable though.
“Overall, I liked the Srixon ZX5 irons more. The 1020 carbon steel forging gives them a better feel and they offer better short game precision. They even played as long as the Titleist T350’s.
And I wouldn’t even say that the Titleist T350’s are more forgiving than the ZX5’s – they’re about the same. So the ZX5’s have the Titleist T350’s beat left, right and center.”
