ZX5 irons

I went through a fitting at Club Champion this winter and these were the irons I hit best. I feel like I hit them well but less consistent than my previous irons. Anyone else who got these irons have thoughts?

The ZX5's and the MMT 80 shafts were the choice from my fitting this past winter.  I only have 3 rounds in with them but so far like them a lot.  I had an iron fitting in 2019 and ended up with PING 410's with AWT 2.0 shafts.  I loved these too but the steel shafts were beating up my troublesome left shoulder.  I wanted composite shafts at that time but nothing he had available for test worked well.  So I decided to get a full bag fitting at True Spec.  It was down to either the ZX5's or the G425's.  Both are listed as GI designs but my personal opinion is that the ZX5's are closer to PCB/PD.  They look small but play big.  I'm seeing about 2-3 yards more distance and less dispersion.

I'm not surprised these made your top spot and will not be surprised to see more and more folks having them be on the short list.

Did you end up buying them.  I have a set and they are very good.  Can’t believe I’ve moved on to something else though.  Actually onto two something else’s 😂

I did end up buying them. I like them a lot so far but still trying to dial in the gaps.

I have had the same issue with them and have had to switch to ZX7 in numerous different irons to create a consistent gap window.
