Srixon ZX7 vs Mizuno MP 20 MMC – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting Srixon’s ZX7 irons with Mizuno’s MP 20 MMC irons. Plenty of our members are eager to hear from those who have played both, and those who have tested both have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • aquapig: “Both great clubs. It comes down to which turf interaction you get along with best. I play the MMCs and love everything about them.”
  • 06VistaGT: “These were the two contenders after my fitting back in May. I went with the zx7s as they seemed just a bit more forgiving and slightly lower spin. I am pretty steep, so the v-sole seems to work well for me. The Mizuno’s are great, too. Will come down to personal choice.”
  • Britboy: “Tested both in my fitting and went with MMCs as I preferred the DG 120 shaft, and they only had Modus 3 for the ZX7. Don’t think you can go wrong with either. ZX7s seemed a bit bigger, but both felt lovely and were relatively long and forgiving for their category. In my view comes down to shaft and brand/look preference.”

Titleist unveils new Scotty Cameron Phantom X 9.5 Triple black putter

Published

on

Titleist has introduced its new Phantom X 9.5 Triple Black mallet putter in a limited-release for golfers looking to put a Tour-inspired model in play.

The Phantom X 9.5 Triple Black is a new high-MOI mallet head shape that shares many features of the Phantom X 5.5 and Phantom X 11 models, but with a matte Tour Black finish and an integrated 6061 aluminum flange-sole component that defines its profile and aims to provide unique alignment cues.

A custom engraving inspired by vintage muscle car pinstripes is designed to help to frame the golf ball at address, as three red dots on the topline mark the sweet spot for a classic look contained on many iconic Scotty Cameron putter designs.

“Each new line I create gives me the opportunity to gather feedback, make design improvements and roll out new models that incorporate these new thoughts—whether it’s a new neck, new finish or new alignment options. This Phantom X 9.5 Triple Black is one of those concepts.

I gave it our Tour Black finish throughout, including the misted black anodized 6061 aluminum component and the stainless steel body. With its jet black paintfill, I thought the classic car term “Triple Black” fit. I also customized the milled sight dots on the topline with our signature translucent red for an extra bit of style. In keeping with the theme of our limited release offerings, this putter also has a custom headcover, shaft band and a Tour Black shaft.” – Scotty Cameron

With an integration of stainless steel and aluminum, the new Phantom X 9.5 Triple Black is engineered for performance with a solid, precision-milled 303 stainless steel body fused with a 6061 aluminum flange-sole component in a bid to provide optimal weight distribution and overall shape.

Per Titleist, by positioning the lighter aluminum in the middle of the mallet, MOI and overall stability are increased by the perimeter weighting crafted from heavier stainless steel. 

The Phantom X 9.5 Triple Black employs the small slant, or “jet”, neck made famous on Tour for its crisp appearance, clean setup and arc-enhancing design. With a full shaft of offset, this unique design seeks to give this compact shape the stability of a mallet with the feel of a blade.

The new addition from Titleist features advanced stability weighting with two customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights and a stepless steel shaft with a Tour Black finish.

In addition, the 6061 aluminum flange-sole component has been misted and anodized black, while the 303 stainless steel—excluding the sole weights—is also misted for glare reduction and has Titleist’s matte Tour Black finish. 

Accessories, Pricing & Availability

Accessories: Comes equipped with a matching specialty mid-round headcover and includes a black Pistolero Plus grip with gray lettering. Additionally, a custom Cameron Concept Triple Black shaft band is included.

Pricing: $750

Availability: Worldwide from October 8
