Srixon

ZX Mk II

Why we like it
With many drivers, the discussion focuses endlessly on how thin and flexible the face is, but for this threesome from Srixon, a flexible face is just the beginning in the search for more distance. Rather than just one spring at impact, these drivers use a ribbon of flexing titanium around the perimeter of the face to create a second spring. The result is more power from more parts of the face. The three drivers here use that power in different ways thanks to the thin-titanium crown’s weight-saving lattice structure that leaves it no thicker than your business card.

ZX5 LS Mk II

  • Larger profile (similar to ZX5) with more of a flattened crown shape.
  • It launches lower with less spin compared to the standard ZX5.
  • It also has a more neutral to slight-fade-biased ball flight.
  • 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 degrees (with a 12-way adjustable hosel).

Top 5 best sound/feel, drivers, middle-handicappers

ZX5 Mk II

  • The largest profile of any of the three heads in the family.
  • A hint of a natural-draw bias is built into this shape.
  • The deep centre of gravity should add loft to most tee shots.
  • 9.5, 10.5 degrees (with a 12-way adjustable hosel).

Top 5 highest launching, drivers, slower swing speeds

ZX7 Mk II

  • It’s shorter front to back for players who prefer to work their tee shots.
  • The lowest launching of the three drivers in the family.
  • Weights for ports in the heel and toe allow players to tweak ball flight.
  • 9.5, 10.5 degrees (with a 12-way adjustable hosel).

Reviewer profile

“The symmetric head has an attractive no-glare finish and a pleasing feel and consistent ball flight. Great mix of muted sound and punch.”

– 5-handicapper

Reviewer profile

“Impact sounds like a jab on a punching bag. Lightweight head feels in balance from the takeaway through the zone. The angles and colour contrast are orderly and not overbaked.”

– 10-handicapper
