Srixon ZX MKII Metals Review

With the new year upon us, Srixon has unveiled its latest metals line-up, the ZX MK II.  These new metals offer a clean classic look in a modern design, creating a driver built for the casual player and tour professional alike.


ZX MKII Drivers


While most drivers have one flex zone, these models feature the Rebound Frame which has two. Like a spring within a spring, Rebound Frame elevates COR across the face for increased ball speed. And that extra ball speed leads to more distance off the tee. While the new Star Frame Crown utilizes a complex series of ridges and latticework to provide the structural integrity necessary to feature a remarkably thin titanium crown. This new, ultralight design gives Srixon the freedom to place discretionary mass where it best suits each ZX Mk II Driver’s ideal launch and spin characteristics.


Driver Heads available:

  • ZX5 MK II (most forgiving, highest launching)

9.5 & 10.5 Lofts, Available in RH & LH

 

  • Zx7 MK II (tour head shape, moveable heel toe weights, most fade)

9.5 & 10.5 Lofts, Available in RH & LH

 

  • The newcomer is ZX5 LS MK II (lowest launch, lowest spin)

8.5, 9.5 & 10.5 Lofts, Available in RH only! All Heads are 460cc and Weights can be custom ordered from 2-14 grams

Driver Thoughts:

I played the prior model of ZX7 for the better part of 2 seasons and I can say without question that this driver instantly has put Srixon on the map. The driver is fast but forgiving and along with the addition of LS, they now have heads for every player. If you are in the market for a new driver, these are worth a try during a fitting or just hitting them on the range, this lineup will be a top competitor for 2023.

 

ZX MKII Fairways

As we know, long game versatility is critical. The new ZX MK II Fairways carry as much power off the deck as they do off a tee, giving you ball speed and great distance wherever you need it. They feature a stronger Rebound Frame design with dual flex zones to deliver a purer energy transfer from club face through the ball, enhancing distance on every shot. A stepped crown lowers the clubhead’s Center of Gravity, ultimately raising launch trajectory for higher, longer shots off the deck, with more forgiveness.

ZX MKII Fairways Available in:

RH - 13.5°, 15°, 18°, 21°

LH - 15°, 18°

 

Testing conducted using a Trackman 4 launch monitor in Outdoor Mode.

Fairway Thoughts:

This new fairway is great for everyone. During testing, the one thing I took away was the ability to launch the fairway as high or low as needed without a loss of speed and forgiveness. I think the fairway will be great for all levels of players as it provides great distance and height. If you are someone that wants to try and find that perfect mixture of distance, forgiveness, and height, the new ZX MK II might just be the one for you in 2023.
