A review of the Srixon Z-Star irons review

Srixon Z-Star
Golf Monthly Verdict

Traditionally Srixon have always made a decent forged iron that offers more forgiveness than most in this category. The Srixon Z-Star has a larger cavity than most forged designs and so feels good without being intimidating.

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

With mid size, forged cavity heads the Srixon Z-Star irons are aimed at low to mid handicap golfers. The Z-Star irons feature two types of forged carbon steel to help combine feel with accuracy.

There is plenty of forgiveness in the cavity which is hidden at address. Visually though, we still haven't made our minds up about the cavity design.
