If you’re a mid single figure handicap golfer and looking for a set of irons that offer powerful forgiveness then these are definitely worth considering. They’re also stylish looking with a player’s distance look to them and a nice forged feel too.
The tungsten in the base of the long and mid irons lowers their center of gravity for high, easy launches. This helps maximize distance on miss-hits.
Srixon’s new MainFrame technology is a one-of-a-kind face design that increases ball speed on every shot. Milled into the backside of each ZX4 iron head, this variable thickness pattern of grooves, channels and cavities maximizes COR to increase distance without sacrificing sound or feel.
As the set progresses into the short irons, the grooves get progressively narrower to allow for maximum spin on approach shots. This optimizes the set for consistency from 3-iron through 7-iron.
Unlike most game improvement irons, the ZX4 doesn’t have that hollow “thunk” at impact. Instead, it’s a cleaner, higher pitched sound that’s more like a blade. That’s great news for golfers that prefer a blade style but want to reap the benefits of game improvement irons for off center contact.
Despite looking sleek, the ZX4 is packed with forgiveness. It’s Srixon’s most forgiving iron, which should appeal to higher handicappers who want some help without sacrificing looks.
Srixon achieves this with a multi-piece hollow body design. The face is forged from strong yet light HT1770 steel to maximise face flex for more speed, while the 431 stainless-steel body absorbs vibrations and provides feel. Srixon also utilises their Mainframe technology, which incorporates a variable thickness face, grooves and channel to boost ball speed irrespective of where you hit the face.
This is paired with Progressive Grooves, where the long and mid irons use wider but shallower grooves to produce more consistent spin. This helps with distance and control, while the scoring irons have deeper, narrower grooves to enforce the right amount of spin. Finally, the Tour V.T sole design glides through the turf effortlessly, even if you hit it fat. This is a big reason why 2021 US Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama and former free agent Brooks Koepka both game Srixon irons.
The ZX4 irons look great at address, and the refined top line combines with a hollow body construction to make them feel more like a player’s distance iron than a game improvement model. Srixon uses a Progression Groove design, so the grooves get wider and deeper as you move up the set from 3-iron through the 8-iron, to help reduce spin and enhance control.
A forged HT1770 steel face increases club speed and allows the grooves to flex at impact, while a 431 steel body absorbs vibrations for a softer feel. Long and mid irons feature tungsten weighting in the sole to lower the center of gravity and deliver high, easy launches.
Whether you’re a higher handicap or a low single figure player, the Srixon ZX4 is a great choice for you. They’ll fit in almost any bag and provide a lot of forgiveness, solid feel and plenty of distance. You won’t be disappointed. Definitely arrange a fitting to check out this fantastic new iron set from Srixon.
The Srixon ZX4 irons are a great choice for players that want to add forgiveness to their bag. They are designed to minimize the damage of off centre hits but don’t get me wrong they won’t give you the same result as a well struck shot. That’s where a good game improvement iron comes into play.
The hollow head design and sleek appearance of the ZX4s make them Srixon’s most forgiving irons. The face utilises MainFrame technology which features a variable-thickness pattern that maximizes COR and leads to higher ball speeds and greater distance.
The ZX4s also feature progressive grooves which mean that as the set progresses from 8 iron upward the grooves become narrower, deeper and more angled to improve control. The ZX4s are a great option for anyone looking to play better, have a little more fun and save some money at the same time. It’s worth arranging a fitting to check them out and see how they feel for yourself.
