For ClubTest 2021, we tested and reviewed 53 new irons to help you find the right one for your game. (For more on our testing process, click here.) Below are the results for the Srixon ZX5 and ZX7 irons. You can find the full list of irons and test results here.
ZX5: 3-PW; ZX7: 3-PW
Our take: When we see and try an iron that combines the soft feel of a forged iron with the added distance and forgiveness of a multi-material construction, we get all giddy inside. According to a club tester talking about the ZX, “I felt like I mishit a few, but you’d never know it by the ample amount of forgiveness. They aren’t far off from the set I normally play, but with a lot more give.”

The details: The multi-piece construction combines tungsten toe weights with a forged carbon-steel body, resulting in optimal weighting and better vibration dampening and control. There are two models here to choose from — the ZX5 and ZX7. The ZX5 has a wider sole and a slightly longer profile for more stability and forgiveness, while the ZX7 is more compact and has a thinner topline for enhanced shotmaking versatility. Mixed sets are available if you want the best of both worlds.
