Srixon Z-Forged Irons

Experience Perfection in Design

Srixon Golf continues to impress with their newest line of player irons, the Srixon Z-Forged blades. As impressive as they are playable, the Z-Forged irons were built for lower handicaps but will appeal to a wide range of golfers.

What do you look for in a blade?

Most of us love the clean lines, smooth finish and minimalist design that blades offer. We all know that their thin, smaller heads require more precision at impact than larger, thicker game improvement irons. This is often reason enough for most players to admire them from afar, placing them back on the rack after thinking “I’m not good enough to game these!”

This reaction would be a mistake with the Srixon Z-Forged irons.

Yes, they are beautiful. Yes, their clubheads are small and their toplines thin. You will feel the difference between a center-face strike and one that is less precise. Miss-struck shot distance will shorten and a green will be missed.

But isn’t that the point?

The Benefits of Z-Forged

Understanding and feeling when you miss a shot is one of the things that makes this game so great. But that doesn’t mean your clubs have to be overly punitive.

The Z-Forged irons are surprisingly forgiving for a blade that looks like it wouldn’t be. Off-center hits did not lose as much distance as other clubs in this category that I’ve tried. This is incredibly important because, as we all know, there is only so much room for punishment in this game. We can take our bumps, write down our score, and still have the chance to get back on track.

Srixon shows they understand this dynamic well in the design of Z-Forged. Each club is forged in 1020 Carbon steel and is incredibly balanced, offering just enough “meat” behind the sweet spot to give you the distance and forgiveness you need. Their VT-shaped sole opens the book on all the shot types you need and from any lie. Hitting the center of the face feels incredible; so much so that you’ll want to play another 18 or reload your range ball bucket just so you can keep hitting these irons.

And their sound? Mercy.

It is clear a ton of planning and thought went into the design of the Z-Forged irons. From a digital design to state-of-the-art prototype printing to the hands of Srixon’s master artisans, Z-Forged is the culmination of the combined talents from some of the game’s best.

With over 40 custom shaft and grip options available, you can truly make your Srixon Z-Forged irons your own. To get started, visit their product website here and treat yourself to a set of clubs you’ll never forget.
