The Srixon ZX5 driver is a high-performing option for the bag, providing distance and forgiveness in equal measure. How does it rate?
The new Rebound Frame Technology is a key design element to producing increased ball speeds, carry distances and overall distance from the tee.

What Srixon says about the ZX5 driver:
“A larger overall footprint and flattened shape, along with a single sole weight placed low and deep, make the new Srixon ZX5 Driver ideal for straight drives that launch high and carry huge distances.
“By focusing more energy into the golf ball, Rebound Frame’s unique structure increases ball speed and distance on every shot, especially center-face impacts.
“A 15% larger carbon crown repositions mass low, pushing MOI up and increasing forgiveness, while flatter, shallower, and straighter, this new head shape inspires confidence for highly skilled players.
“A weight port allows you to adjust swing weight based on shaft choice and feel preference. An adjustable hosel also provides variation in loft, life, and face angle.”
