THE NEW SRIXON IRONS
ARE THE latest equipment launch from the Cleveland/Srixon golf family.
But following up on the launch of the ZX MK II Woods, are the ZX MK II Irons.
“The technologies driving the exceptional performance of the ZX MK II Irons are really exciting to launch and get into the golfers hands,” said Brian Schielke, General Manager of Srixon. “Longer distances, improved feel, more control and greater consistency in each iron set.”
Srixon ZX MK II irons are designed for good ball strikers, but they are a players iron with a incredible feel. The PureFrame improves the feel by limiting unwanted vibrations. But it brings an 80% thicker portion of 1020 carbon steel. So the end result is a solid feeling at impact.
But the line of irons includes ZX4, ZX5, ZX MK II and a Z-Forged II muscle back blade iron.
THE KEY TECHNOLOGIES are PureFrame Forged into ZX7 MK II. But it’s placed where you strike the ball, but while delivering an impact feel.
MAIN FRAME: MainFrame is the variable thickness pattern of grooves, channels, and cavities milled into the backside of the iron face. MainFrame is on ZX4 MK II, ZX5 MK II, and the ZX MK II Utility Irons.
TOUR V.T. SOLE: takes turf interaction to a new level of detail. But with a combination of sole widths, bounce angles, and notches that encourages a smooth glide through fairway, rough and sand to strike the ball solidly without losing clubhead speed.
PROGRESSIVE GROOVES: The 3i-7i feature wide grooves for longer shots needed in all conditions. The 8i-AW have deeper, but a closer set of grooves that cut through the grass and debris to enhance spin on approach shots.
FORGED MULTI-PIECE CONSTRUCTION: ZX MK II Utility forged SUP10 faces are strong yet light-increasing face flex at impact. But designed for enhanced speed and distance.
PRICING: ZX7 MK II Irons $1,199.99 7-piece steel. ZX5 MK II Irons $1,199.99 7-piece steel. ZX4 MK II Irons $1,199.99 7-piece steel. Z-Forged II Irons $1,199.99 7-piece steel. But ZX MK II Utility Irons are $239.99
