Srixon ZX4 Hollow-Body Irons - a BIG Surprise!


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Nice writeup Barbajo. Those are some fantastic looking SGI irons, honestly seeing Srixon come out with these is a bit surprising like you mentioned in the article with Cleveland kind of having that category wrapped up with Srixon traditionally being the "lower cap" brand. I love the VT sole in a wider body, for me a longer heel to toe length is something I actually like and find reassuring as a higher 'cap. Still, I wouldn't mind one bit giving these a few whacks!

Intriged, just not sure they would fit for me in the bag - I just bought a Srixon ZX 23* utility iron.  

I was contemplating trying out the ZX5/ZX7 for a mixed bag this year.  Either ZX5 - 5 - 6 Iron or 5-7 irons.  Then the rest zx7 of either make up.  Need to hit as I really love the Modus shaft that is the stock option, but in the past, I've gotten better numbers from a DG or KBS.

Yikes - ANOTHER hollow iron? Maybe Taylormade were really onto something 30 years ago when the ICW's first came out?

Seriously though - some dang fine looking irons. Let's hope they don't hit moon balls like the i500's..

Nice article. I've been looking forward to this release for a few months. Currently playing z585 5-6 and z785 7-pw, but have been thinking of replacing my 5 iron with something a little more forgiving. G710 had my interests. I have demoed the Cleveland UHX 5 utillity several times and have been really impressed. But I can't wait to try the ZX4. Bend the 5 iron 1 degree weak and kill some offset and match the loft to the ZX5 and it could be a sneaky good club.

Srixon irons are as beautiful as they come, and have performance to match! It’s sad they don’t get many tries at demo days, and at stores.

Funny you say that. I went to a demo day two years ago with the intent to try out Srixon irons and the driver. The manufactures rep kept pushing Cleveland on me. Twice I said I wanted to try Srixon and he said no you really want to try the Cleveland. Now probably six months earlier I was fit and purchased a G400 driver. This guy tried to put me in a loft and flex that were as far opposite as you could be. I told him that that combination would not work for me. Trust me he said. I hit four knuckle balls. I grabbed my G400 and hit a perfect drive. I told him he needed to listen more and left his area. Never even got to hit the irons.

Been sitting on these until embargo day, but gloryosky these are some surprisingly good irons. Unless you are a hardcore CB or blade player, do yourself a favor and put these on your demo list. You're welcome...

I didn't even know about these when I was at the Srixon Demo this past Saturday.  The fitter/rep didn't mention them but then again I asked specifically for ZX5 and ZX7's. That's OK though because I'm either casting the Linus Blanket aside and going with the ZX5's or running back to that warm, comfy, familiar place called PING... or more specifically G425's.

Sounds like this can give the golfer who needs the forgiveness of a SGI club, a closer look to that of a players iron. A lot of the reason I picked up Z585 last year, but maybe just a step closer to the SGI look and performance a lot of the market is after. Should be a winner for Srixon.

I'll be curious to see what these look like in person because these look very chunky in the pictures. 

It's a wide sole iron and it's based on the previous generation Srixon utility iron so yeah, it's on the Barney Rubble side of chunky. For the category, tho, it's relatively clean with a shorter blade length than you'd expect. The longer irons are short and stout, the shorter irons less so. As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the more you hit this things, the prettier they get ;-).
