Srixon irons are weak spinners?

Recommended Posts

Every video I watch about most every srixon iron seems to think they’re a bit weak on the spin numbers, usually at least 1000. Like for example, the 585 vs the 919 forged.

the mizzys 7 iron was close to 7k, while the srixon was in the 5k zone. Anyone feel this to be an accurate thought? They go a little bit further, but don’t seem to stop as well, seems a common theme... even the blades were a bit weak on spin it seems.

I’ve been day dreaming about some new irons of late, and am not worried about the loss of distance that a more traditional lofts will bring, but I miss the old spin numbers. One set I’m contemplating is the new hogan ptx-pro ‘s. They click a lot of boxes, and make that good spin, sort of the 100 per iron, like a 6 iron will turn 6000 revs, and so on...

I haven't found them to be low spin at all, but I only have my own 785 set and have not done head to head vs other sets. I think they hold well though the wind but have not noticed any issue with stopping power whatsoever. I could see the 5 series being a little hotter than 919 forged, but I think the 7 is a more direct comp to that particular Mizzy

The 785's were actually one of the  top performers for me at a club champion fitting in December of 2018 in terms of distance/accuracy/feel.  I just had bought my Mizuno MP 18 SC's earlier in 2018, so I knew I wasn't going to switch, but was still curious if what I was playing was among the best. 

To your point - looking at the data I was about 1000 rpm lower on average with the Srixon's and I am a fairly steep hitter of the golf ball.  Angle of attack on irons is around 8/9 degrees.

I have never had any problems with stopping power with my 765s. It's really important to look at the total package (angle of descent and spin) and not just spin.

From my time with hitting the Srixon Irons the 5 series does spin a little less than the 7 and 9 series. However compared to other manufacturers in that gi iron they all tend to spin less than a players iron.

Currently playing 785s. Used to play 565/765 in the past as well as had 945/965s. Never felt that the spin was less by 1000. However I did notice that overall the 565s spun less than 765s. The 7xx line stayed true in terms of spin.

Side note: Mizunos and Titleist blades spin like crazy for my swing. I saw some 7irons go above 7500 to 8000 range.

Makes sense.  Less spin means straighter shots.  Less spin means more manageable misses and in a game improvement iron you don't want them spinning left to right banana ball out of bounds - workable means more spin.  Just makes sense to me a game improvement club spins less, goes straighter and misses less vs a muscle back blade which spins a ton, highly workable and if you're not a decent golfer will hook or slice a lot more with the right ball.

But even their 7 series as well as their blades are lower spinning, seems kinda across the board.

I played 745s since shortly after their debut and recently switched to a set of 965s.  I've never hit either set on a launch monitor, just had both built off of feel and the ball flight I want.  I've never had issues with getting the ball to hold a green, even with long irons on par 5 approaches.

It’s funny that the guy I just bought my mizzy’s from complained that he spun the ball too much, so he bought a z-Forged/785 combo set so he would quit spinning the ball uncontrollably. So for some people, that lower spin is the cats meow.
