Wilson Staff CB Vs. Srixon ZX7 Irons Comparison Overview
The Wilson Staff line of irons are highly coveted by skilled players everywhere. With the Wilson Staff CB irons though, Wilson aimed to make this prestigious line more accessible to mid handicappers. The Srixon ZX7 irons also offer unique combination of players performance and game improvement features.
These two iron sets are comparable in a lot of ways but we wanted to see just how similar or different they were in a real-life round of testing. So let’s take a look at the details of these iron sets!
Wilson Staff CB Irons Overview
The Wilson Staff CB irons have the look of game-improvement irons but the feel of player’s performance irons.
First of all, they are forged from 8620 carbon steel so they have a soft, and very consistent feel to them. The feel is very reminiscent of more expensive player’s performance irons. But these are cavity back irons so MOI is greatly increased.
This is good news if you are a mid handicapper who still struggles to keep the ball straight from time to time. Helping to eliminate hooks as well is twenty grams of tungsten in the toes of the mid and long irons. The CB irons also offer a lot of stopping power thanks to very strong lofts.
Srixon ZX7 Irons Overview
The Srixon ZX7 irons are used by some of the best Tour pros in the world.
That’s because they offer a great combination of distance and greenside accuracy. They feature progressive grooves that get deeper as you work towards the wedges. Around the pin, the Srixon ZX7 irons spin like a dream and can hold onto very fast greens with no problem.
They are only slightly less lofted than the Wilson Staff CB irons as well so you get really nice, steep descent angles out of them as well. The Srixon ZX7 irons also feature tungsten toe weighting in the long irons to help straighten out errant strikes so they are moderately forgiving.
These irons are forged from a single billet of carbon steel so they naturally offer more consistency than the Wilson Stadd CB irons.
In the end, these iron sets performed very similarly. Ultimately the Srixon ZX7 irons won us over though. The greenside spin was much better with the Srixon ZX7 irons and they would appeal more to low handicap players seeking ultimate consistency.
