I am looking at the Srixon Z585/Z785 irons, possibly in a combo set.  I currently game the Callaway X14 Pro Series and I am wondering if anyone has experience with both models.  I'm a 4-5 handicap but it is mostly due to my short game.  I will go through stretches where my ball striking stinks and I rely on my chipping to save par.  So knowing that if you have hit the Srixons let's hear some opinions... particularly if you've also hit the X14's.

Awesome irons.  Play z785 5-PW.  I play a 2 and 4 u65 with matching steel shafts.  Nippon Modus3 120.

Go for it and dont look back.  I've also heard great things about z585.  Combo set would be great.

Play 6- Aw in the 785, had p790s before that.  The 785s are much more consistent distance wise.  I had the U85 4 and 5 but did not like them.  Had trouble with the wide sole.

Great irons.  The 7 series are very forgiving for the type of iron that they are.  Tested the U, 5's and 7's and settled on the 6-pw on the 7's and a 5 iron 5 series.  I personally think that the u and 5 series longer irons are pretty comparable in terms of forgiveness.  Only thing I noticed with the U's is that they  elevate a little easier than the 5 series.  So if you need help in getting the ball in the air, I would check out the U.
Under construction.
All Srixon next year.

I have the 585's and love them. Came from Mizuno JPX 825 Pros. My only problem/ concern is that i went from KBS Tour 120s to Modus 105s. I am have a bit of a problem getting used to the weight. That being said, every time I've played them, its been less than optimal conditions (cold, cold and windy, wet) So I think that I am going to give it a season with those shafts. But the heads are on point.

Last year I played the 565’s.  At the time I got them I hit both 565 and 765. I went with the 565 despite actually hitting the 765 better when demoing them.  I figured over the long term the added forgiveness would be better for me (4 handicap and irons are the weak part of my game). They were just OK and I never really was as accurate with them as I thought I would be   Ran the JPX 900 forged for a few months and I am now playing the 785’s and love them.  My ball striking is much better than it was with the 565’s.  The smaller footprint and the little bit of less offset just work better for me.  I play them 4 through gap wedge with Modus 120 stiff.  I also tried the U85 4 iron but it could not kick the 785 4 iron out of the bag.  For me even the long 785 irons are quite forgiving and easy to elevate.  Hit them both if you can and see which one is better for you.

I have the 585's 4-AW, awesome irons. Great feel, really good feel. Great ball flight and forgiveness, and also very long. Came from the i500's and they are better for me in every aspect.

Lovely irons. The lofts are very different from 585-785 so just be aware.

I got fit into 585/785 combo.  Iím cheap so I now have a full set of 745s.  I wanted more control on my short irons so I got the full set of 745s - also the 5 series PW is like 44 degrees - I donít want to carry four wedges.

But I donít think you can go wrong with these irons. Iím sure some people have been unhappy with them but they seem to be as universally well liked as anything else.

They are great but I found the 585 spin about 2k rpm less and 785 1k  less than the 919F.

I found it easier to hit a higher ball with the 919 Tout vs the 785 Tour (both in the same shaft).

I understand the slightly stronger loft in the z785 - but all things being equal - the 919 Tour was preferable.
