SPOTTED: Srixon ZX5 “Mk II LS” and ZX7 “Mk II” drivers being tested in Napa

Published

on

It’s the start of the new season at the 2022 Fortinet Championship, and we’re starting to see brand new products being tested out on the PGA Tour (such as a Wilson Dynapwr driver and Cobra King Tour irons). On Tuesday in Napa, GolfWRX spotted various Srixon staffers seeing and testing new Srixon drivers for the first time, including Hideki Matsuyama.

While it’s still too early for any technical/design information, we were able to take in-hand photos of new Srixon “ZX5 Mk II LS” and “ZX7 Mk II” drivers from inside PGA Tour players’ bags. All we know for sure is that the ZX5 model has “LS” – presumably standing for “low spin” – on the sole and hosel, and both the ZX5 and ZX7 have “Rebound Frame” and “MkII” written on them, as well. The ZX5 appears to have a sole weight near the face, whereas the ZX7 has two sole weights near the rear.

The last time we saw new drivers from Srixon was the release of the company’s current ZX5 and ZX7 drivers in 2021. It appears that the drivers pictured below may eventually be their replacements in the retail market, but we don’t have a confirmed timeline as of yet from Srixon. PGA Tour players themselves are still seeing the drivers for their first time.

For now, let’s enjoy the photos of new Srixon ZX5 Mk II LS and Srixon ZX7 Mk II drivers below.

    You mentioned seeing Srixon drivers in players’ bags…

    Which players?

    I think that for the last ten years, the consistently-best looking drivers have been Srixons.

    I just wish there were more places/outlets to try them and do A/B testing.

      I agree. Srixon makes great irons and the wood are good also. It’s just hard to find someplace to hit the woods. I’ve currently got the driver and 3 wood and they’ve been very consistent. Looking forward to the low spin version

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Bettinardi adds BB28 putter to brand’s BB series

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
