Srixon ZX Mk II Hybrids

Srixon ZX Mk II hybrids have been released for 2023 as the second generation model. How do they rate vs the original ZX rescues?

Part of a complete new ZX Mk II series that also features ZX5 drivers and ZX5 irons as well as ZX7 driver and ZX7 irons and the ZX Mk II fairway woods, the new hybrids feature latest technologies for improved distance and accuracy.

Featuring new Rebound Technology, a Dual Flex Zone face design, improved shaping and a larger sole weight to lower the CG, Srixon have gone all out to improve the performance in this second generation.

In the article, we take a look at the design changes, how they benefit you and what you can expect if adding the ZX Mk IIs to the bag this season.

What Srixon says about the ZX Mk II Hybrids:

“The Srixon ZX MK II Hybrids inspire confidence, strike clean, and keep you in the game. They are Compact, powerful, and incredibly reliable.

“Most Hybrids have one flex zone. Rebound Frame has two. Like a spring within a spring, Rebound Frame elevates COR across the face for increased ball speed. And that extra ball speed leads to more distance.

“Like any modern Hybrid, the speed of ZX Mk II starts with a flexible face – and our face is especially fast thanks to its advanced Ti51AF Titanium alloy construction.

“When the Dual Flex Zones flex simultaneously at impact, then snap back into shape, their compounded energy transfer is far more powerful than single-flex designs.

“A new, larger internal sole weight, placed lower and deeper than the previous generation, allowed us to position more mass deeper in the clubhead. This also shifts the Center of Gravity in the same direction, raising launch for higher, longer shots.

“A new face radius – spanning from the leading edge to the crown – provides more consistent spin on shots struck high or low, giving you more dependable distance from shot to shot.”

Srixon ZX Mk II Hybrids Specs & Design

The new second generation ZX Mk II hybrids have been tweaked to have a more compact shape with a neutral face angle and a squared-off toe compared to the original ZX rescues.

The change in shape has allowed Srixon to add a new internal sole weight lower and deeper in the club head to bring down the Center of Gravity and improve the launch angle from the new hybrids.

The key features in the design of the latest release is the Rebound Frame Technology and the Dual Flex Zones.

Rebound Frame Technology delivers increased ball speed and distance, particularly on off-center strikes, and the Dual Flex Zones produce greater energy transfer behind the face to generate velocity on the ball.

The face, which is a Ti51AF Titanium alloy construction, is also designed with variable thickness to optimize performance on all areas of the flexing face.

The carbon crown helps to reduce weight, increase clubhead speed and improve both distance and forgiveness while weight has also moved to the perimeter thanks to a Hollow Body Construction.
