“Features the widest sole, longest blade, and most offset in ZX family, but still offers a clean address view. A thin topline and low offset create a classic, tour-preferred address shape.

Srixon ZX5 Irons Specs & Design

The ZX5 irons were designed after two years of research and development and Srixon came up with a solid all-round performer.

The Srixon irons have a forged 1020 Carbon Steel body for a soft feel, coupled with a SUP10 face for faster ball speeds and more distance.

Ball speeds are also enhanced by a milled pattern on the backside of each iron face, which has been designed by AI and maximizes COR.

The 3-iron to 7-iron have wider grooves and feature tungsten in the toe for an increased MOI, improved stability and enhanced forgiveness.

The 8-iron through to Pitching Wedge have “progressive grooves” that are sharper, narrower, and deeper to help you add more spin and control to your short game.

The ZX5s feature a Tour V.T. Sole to improve ball striking, particularly when striking behind the ball.
