Honma 747v irons vs. Srixon ZX7 irons ???

Scotland blue

Recommended Posts

I have recently been seeing a lot of buzz about these Srixon irons and wondered about how they compare to the Honmas.  The appearance is close and I think they come with basically the same shaft.  I'm not sure but I think that the lofts are very close if not the same.  Those of you with experience in both would be interesting to hear your comments.

I think the 747 irons have been replaced by the Tr20 line; at least that is what is available in the us market.  I have the tr20V in my bag and the srixon 765 in my backup bag.  I have tested the zx7 as part of most wanted.   I don’t have them side by side and am going from memory but would say:

honma a little smaller

honma a little more muted from a sound perspective.  Both feel good but feel Is very personal. 

equivalent performance 

overall I like the honma’s but wouldn’t hesitate to play the zx7s.  Both are solid clubs.

I got fitted this month and hit both the zx7 and the Honda tr20v. There are so many good irons out there right now (I tested probably 6-8 brands). I went with the zx7 as ended up having the most consistent numbers with it (that was my main priority). Feel wise and looks both are great, main difference I noticed was mishits for me the Honma was less forgiving. Recommend going to a fitter, everyone is different and you'll be surprised at what you like. My second fav iron was actually the taylormade tp770 (which I'm usually not a TaylorMade fan).

Just purchased the zx7’s. Never been a Srixon guy and was trying to find any way out of getting the. Really wanted the mizuno 20’s or tm Mc/770 combo... 


I was so much more consistent with the zx7’s it was comical. Great feel, very forgiving, great sound and really loved the turn interaction which is very unique. Wish I could say something bad but even hit the 4 iron great.
