Srixon ZX7 vs Mizuno Pro 223 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing and contrasting Srixon’s ZX7 irons and Mizuno’s Pro 223 irons. WRXer ‘Casey_0507’ is looking for an in-depth comparison between the two heads, and our members have been sharing their thoughts and experiences with both irons 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.

  • Cactus Jack: “In my hands the irons feel very different. The ZX7s have an almost dense heavy feeling strike similar to a Muria, while the 223s felt fast and extremely soft with all the classic Mizuno DNA one can handle. Within a few swings with each club you’ll likely have a clear cut favorite.”
  • JoeFrigo: “I’ve got both 223’s and zx7’s on order… From what I remember, when I hit both, 223’s had slightly faster ball speed. Both were comparable spin. ZX7’s have a thicker topline.”
  • wam78: “I’ve been a Mizuno fanboy for a long time. Since I played mp14’s in the late 90’s right out of high school. Off and on love affair with them. Whenever they come out with a new iron release, they always pique my interest. I have not hit the 223 yet, but I will in the very near future. Very interested to see the looks at address and see the numbers and ball flight. However, this is my first time playing Srixon (zx7’s), and man have I been impressed. The feel is everything I want from an iron in this category. Very forgiving, sole design really works for my delivery. My numbers are absolutely spot on. They allow me to play the ball I want to play without too much or too little spin. Just a fantastic iron!”
  • kwainio: “I just did a fitting this week. At address they both look very similar, enough so that I didn’t really have a preference. The 223s definitely felt hotter off the face, spun somewhere around 200-300rpms less, but overall pretty negligible. I ended up going 223s.”

Cobra unveils fourth-generation King Forged Tec and Tec X irons

Published

on

Cobra Golf has today introduced its fourth generation of its King Forged Tec irons that will hit retail on April 29, 2022.

The irons feature three significant improvements, including a 5-step forged body and face, a sleeker topline with reduced offset, and a lighter and softer foam in design for improved sound and feel. 

The new editions carry over a hollow body design with tungsten weighting and PwrShell technology that together bid to provide enhanced distance with improved stability in a more compact shape.

The 2022 irons debut a third model to the family with the Forged Tec X, which is designed to offer more forgiveness in a players’ game-improvement shape. 

Forged Tec and Tec One Length irons

These irons fall into the “player’s distance” category and are designed for better players in the low to mid handicap range.

The Tec irons reveal a thinner topline and reduced offset to create a preferred players look at address. A hollow body design is filled with a lighter and softer foam material to promote more distance while maintaining great sound, feel and feedback.

Each iron in the set features a forged PwrShell Face in design to create maximum speed and high launch. A 20g tungsten toe weight centers the CG behind the sweet spot for pure feeling ball strikes with added stability on off-center hits. The Forged TEC One Length irons are configured with a constant, 7-iron length setup. 

The Forged Tec X

The new addition from Cobra is the Forged Tec’s more forgiving counterpart that is designed for mid to higher handicaps and paves the way for a new category of player’s “game-improvement” irons.

The iron features a lower CG design, lower profile, a slightly thicker topline, and stronger lofts than the Forged Tec irons.

The Tec X also features a hollow body and foam insert but utilizes a massive 65g tungsten weight (45g more than Tec) to lower CG in design to maximize stability for higher launch despite the stronger lofts.

The Forged Tec variable length irons cost $1,199 (steel) and $1,299 (graphite) and are available in a 7-piece (4-PW) set in right hand (left-hand available through custom).

The Forged Tec One Length irons cost $1,199 (steel) and $1,299 (graphite) and are available in a 7- piece (5-PW) set in stiff and regular, in right hand (LH and graphite options are available through custom). 

The Forged Tec X irons cost $1,199 (steel) and $1,299 (graphite) and come stock in a 7-piece (4-PW and 5-GW) set in stiff and Reg in RH (LH available through custom) in both steel and graphite options.

PXG introduces new Gen5 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids

Published

on

PXG has today introduced its new Gen5 family of woods and hybrids that feature an increased moment of inertia (MOI), faster ball speeds, longer distances, and tighter dispersion, according to the company. 

The new drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids all contain a Full Aluminum Vapor (AV) Carbon Fiber Crown, an Internal Supported Weight Structure, Precision Weighting Technology, and Robotic Polishing.

The lightweight crown, made entirely from high-grade carbon fiber, is designed to help save critical mass, while the AV Technology stiffens the structure and reduces energy loss.

The Supported Weight Structure is designed to dampen harsh vibrations at impact while producing higher modal frequencies to deliver a dynamic feel and gratifying sound. 

Precision Weighting Technology pushes mass to the extreme perimeter to drastically increase MOI, while Robotic Polishing, a high-precision process, aims to ensure the bulge and roll radii are held to the tightest tolerances to produce ideal ball flight even on off-center hits.

PXG 0311 Drivers

Unique to the Gen5 driver is a High-Speed Ti412 Face and Variable Face Design. The titanium alloy face material has an exceptionally high yield strength and a low elastic modulus that is designed to generate significant face deflection resulting in ultra-fast ball speeds.

The variable thickness face features internal topographic geometries that bid to help reduce mass and enhance ball speeds while also increasing durability.

The new drivers are available in two models:

The standard PXG 0311 Gen5 driver presents a comfortable, traditional head shape, tall, deep face, and low-spin design to deliver maximum ball speed and distance.

The PXG 0311 XF Gen5 driver offers a confidence-inspiring head shape, a larger face that expands the hitting zone, and a mid-spin design for added forgiveness.

PXG 0311 Fairways & Hybrids

The Gen5 fairways and hybrids are made from a high-strength AM355 steel body material in a bid to create a high-performance head design with ideal launch and spin characteristics.

The body material is coupled with an HT1770 stainless steel high-speed, squared face that is designed to promote maximum ball speeds.

Both the Gen5 fairways and GEN5 hybrids are available in two distinct models:

Standard PXG 0311 Gen5 fairways and PXG 0311 Gen5 hybrids feature a low-spin head with a comfortable shape at address. A flat sole design keeps mass low and pushes weight to the perimeter in design for increased forgiveness. 

Generating an incredibly high MOI, the PXG 0311 XF Gen5 fairways and 0311 XF Gen5 hybrids offer mid-spin options to deliver a confidence-inspiring head shape. A Railed Sole Geometry is paired with a forgiveness-enhancing flat sole design in a bid to offer improved turf interaction, especially for those with a steep angle of attack.

Both the fairways and hybrids are priced at $379 each, while the drivers cost $499 each.
