Srixon Irons: 2000-2009

In the 20th century, Srixon’s Japanese parent company Sumitomo had largely focused its attention on the production of golf balls. However, by the mid-2000s it was plotting to make a significantly larger footprint in the golf industry.

In 2007, Srixon released its first line of irons: the I-701 and I-701 Tour.

The I-701 iron offered forgiveness in a cavity back design, aided by vibration-dampening material behind the face. Its brother, the I-701 Tour, targeted low-handicap players with a compact player’s shape, soft feel, and penetrating flight.

This initial foray into irons set the stage for a decade defined by blending traditional forged designs with modern game-improvement technology.

Fast forward three years and Srixon’s lofty ambition was clear.

The 2010 Z-TX irons packed serious technology into a clean, cavity back profile with customized tuning in each club. This was aided by a TPU insert in the 3-7 irons to enhance feel and carry distance. The Z-TX took custom fitting to the next level through optimized center-of-gravity placements based on swing speed.

Continuing its balanced approach, Srixon rolled out the Z355 irons in 2015. Aimed at mid-handicappers seeking maximum forgiveness and height, the deep undercut cavity backed each hitting zone with vibration-dampening material. Custom tuning and specialized face milling were again present to provide ideal launch conditions.

In 2016, Srixon debuted three tour-inspired iron models spanning players to game improvement categories: the Z565, Z765, and Z965.

The Z565 irons were designed for mid to high-handicappers. With a deep cavity back and perimeter weighting, they offered plenty of forgiveness without sacrificing the touch and feel associated with Srixon forged irons.

Sitting in the middle, the Z765 irons offered a perfect blend of performance and forgiveness. Designed with a sleek muscle cavity, these irons exude class.

Finally, the Z965 was the ultimate player’s iron. This sleek muscle back blade model was forged from extremely soft 1020 carbon steel and featured a fully polished finish akin to butter knives. Warning: they aren’t mishit friendly!

Srixon Irons: 2020-Present

In 2020, Srixon launched the third generation of its ZX series irons.

First, the Japanese company introduced the ZX5 and ZX7 irons. The ZX5 had a quality forged feel, with cavity back elements to enhance forgiveness. Similarly, the ZX7 had a sleek cavity, but with a thinner top line for a streamlined look.

The following year saw the release of the ZX4 irons. These employed a hollow-body design, similar to that of the popular TaylorMade P790 or Takomo 101.

The latest release from Srixon is the 2023 ZX MKII series irons.

This iteration has seen refinements with the ZX4 MKII, ZX5 MKII, and ZX7 MKII, along with the introduction of the Z-Forged player’s irons.

Ultimately, the ZX4 MKII irons are the best pick for the everyday golfer. They offer game improvement forgiveness in a sleek package. With strong lofts and a hollow body design, they have powerful distance along with a premium forged feel.
