Srixon’s new irons offer plenty of shelf appeal thanks to understated visuals on the cavity and clean, attractive design. The blade is quite thin to look down on and is combined with a long head. This works better visually in the long irons but provides a solid strike throughout the set. The steel Nippon shafts we tested helped provide a soft feel combined with the forged heads. The head design was far more forgiving than the thin topline would suggest and the weighting helped produce a penetrating flight. The shorter irons don’t work as well visually compared to the longer clubs and take a little getting used to at address. The thin top line means these will suit improving iron players rather than those looking for all-out forgiveness. (Tested by GM's Paul O'Hagan & James Mason) PGA Pro verdict Forged irons with a long blade and deep heel. Slightly too ‘boxy’ in the short irons, but it really did feel easy to align the face to target. Good solid feel on impact and the flight was penetrating. The milled face looked great and gave the feeling of more control. The more I practised with them the better the clubs looked. They also felt consistent through the set as regards to feel.

Srixon Z-TX irons review
Stock shaft options
Diamana graphite (regular)
Nippon NS 950 steel (regular)
A straight leading edge and thin top line are combined with a sweetspot that is 20% bigger compared to previous Srixon irons. Tungsten weights low in the back of the heel and toe give a higher trajectory.
