Spotted: 2017 Titleist irons at the Sanderson Farms

Published

on

We spotted new Titleist irons at the Sanderson Farms Championship, where they were being tested by Scott Stallings and Matt Jones. The irons appear to be early prototypes intended for release with Titleist’s 2017 iron line.

The back of the prototype irons were covered with tape, but it’s clear that they were being tested against Titleist’s 716 iron line, including the 716 T-MB irons. All irons being tested appeared to be long irons.

Is this the new AP2?

Is this the new AP2?

Titleist generally releases a new line of irons every other year. The company’s 716 line (MB, CB, AP2, T-MB and AP1) was released in the fall of 2015, and tour players began using the clubs in competition in July 2015. The 714 irons were released in the fall of 2013, and the 712 irons were released in the fall of 2011.

Consider this initial testing, and expect changes to be made to the design of the clubs based on player feedback between now and their expected release to PGA Tour players in July 2017.

    Someone could have yelled at Stallings to “Take it off! Take it off!”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
