Srixon Drivers Over the Last 5 Years
Srixon has really made some noise in recent years in the driver space. The most recent options being the ZX5 and ZX7. The two are both great options off the tee, for different reasons.
The ZX5 is the bigger, more forgiving, set it and forget it driver. Just smash away!
The ZX7 has a smaller profile, and offers adjustability with rear weights, and adjustable hosel. This allows for shot shaping and customization some players prefer.
Same as the pairing iron sets, the 7 series leans towards a players option, while the 5 series is more game improvement, the Z785 and Z585 are a perfect marriage of tour level gamer and top performing driver for high the handicapper.
Although the 7 series is considered the players club, you will see the ZX5 in the bags of some tour pros like Shane Lowry. The distance, forgiveness, and feel are hard to compete against, thus finding its way on tour.
All things considered, the new kid on the block packs a punch. Srixon is clearly taking its elite ball making skills, and seamlessly putting in work with clubmaking.
Srixon Drivers History
Although Srixon has only been making drivers since 2009, not 1909 like Wilson, they clearly have the clubmaking game figured out. Tour staffer Hideki Matsuyama winning the Masters, and signing Brooks Koepka are a testament to their quality.
Coming on the scene in 2009, with the Z-RW, it didn’t take long for players to take notice that Srixon brought the same high performance into their clubs. Srixon clubs found tour validation via the signing of Graeme McDowell in 2010.
Although it took some time for the Srixon drivers to find traction, you will find them in the bags of many top players such as Shane Lowry, Hideki Matsuyama, Brooks Koepka, and KJ Choi.
How Often Does Srixon Release New Drivers?
Srixon clubs are new in town. Just over a decade of history. In the 13 years of driver production, Srixon has had seven major driver releases. Most with two options. This equates to an every two years pattern with Srixon driver releases.
Srixon’s parent company, SRI, is one of the oldest companies in the world. Dating back over 1200 years! They have been the maker of some of the most iconic golf balls in history, and plan to take the world by storm with clubmaking. Better late than never!
