What Srixon says about the ZX Utility Irons:

“ZX Mk II Utility replacement long irons offer every player – even tour pros – more long-game power, control, and forgiveness in a blade-like design with a hollow build.

“Their low Centers of Gravity and long-Iron forgiveness easily elevate your launch. Featuring a narrow topline, our widest soles, and minimal offset.

“MainFrame is a variable thickness pattern of grooves, channels, and cavities carefully milled into the backside of ZX Mk II Utility Iron faces that maximizes flex at impact.

“MainFrame not only boosts COR, it also repositions mass away from the face and into the toe and sole for a lower Center of Gravity.

“This creates more than just faster ball speed, but also more consistency and forgiveness, enhancing all aspects of your iron play, shot for shot.

“Sole notches on the heel and toe sides lessen drag by reducing the amount of surface area that contacts the ground.

“Ultimately, they provide better clubhead speed through turf and improve shot versatility without sacrificing forgiveness.”
