ZX7 Mk II / ZX5 Mk II / ZX5 LS Mk II

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Driver design involves much more than the use of a special titanium in the face that allows it to flex better. Srixon’s engineers know that the key to making a more flexible face is to get the rest of the body to contribute at impact. That’s why there’s an accordion-like system of stiff and flexible regions surrounding the face along the top line, crown and sole.

WHY WE LIKE IT: Srixon strives to make a better driver without resorting to a carbon-composite crown, and it starts with a special titanium alloy in the face that maximizes energy. A thin titanium crown—thinner than a greeting card—saves additional mass on top. All of this contributes to a body with stiff and flexible regions that surround the face and work into the crown and sole. Read more>>

Which One's For Me?
ZX7 Mk II
The ZX7 produces a penetrating flight for better, more exacting swings.
ZX5 Mk II
The ZX5 uses a stable head on mis-hits and yields a consistently higher ball flight to help most average golfers.
ZX5 LS Mk II
Although nearly as forgiving, the LS version uses a front sole weight for less spin and a slightly lower flight.

Player Comments
Medium-Handicapper
"Kind of a subtle design. Appreciated. Not overbaked. Pleased with the feeling of it through impact all the way through extension. Came through easily and efficiently. Had a piercing flight. Cut through the air. Apparent bounce to the face, a trampoline feel at impact."
Handicap, 8
Low-Handicapper
“The shape of the head isn’t crazy, and the matte finish is clean—no distractions. Springy feel, reasonable misses.  A consistent, flat trajectory on the LS.”
Handicap, 2
High-Handicapper
"Matte black is cool, simple, clean. All the outer details are cool. So easy to hit, draws, fades, it was nice. Your confidence grew with every swing. Every shot was right in a line."
