REVIEW: Srixon Z-Forged Irons
The Srixon Z-Forged stand on their own as a full set of irons, but also work really well in combination with the Z785 irons and Z585 irons. I add my Z-Forged to a combo set so that I could benefit most from the scoring precision of the Z-Forged by still have the max forgiveness in the long irons. They blend together extremely well in every way. They look like they were designed to compliment each other and transition nicely for distance, look, feel, and playability.
Why Srixon Z-Forged? After you enjoy looking at them, your joy will continue when you hit them. They offer that pure forged blade feel at impact that no matter how hard cavity backs, polymer filled irons try to replicate, they simply can’t argue with solid 1020 Carbon Steel forged into this head. This is part of the love of blades is that pure feeling you get on irons shots. Yes this does require a decent golf swing, but not only a pro swing. Especially if you go combo set, but even if you go full irons 3-PW in the Srixon Z-Forged they are playable. They offer enough forgiveness that most single digit handicap golfers can play them, maybe even some low double digit golfer could play if iron play isn’t the weakness.
The Srixon Z-Forged irons give you amazing accuracy. While they are workable, I find them just as easy to hit straight at my target repeatedly. From time to time there is reason to make the ball curve, but these are shaped and weight to hit the ball straight. The weight is low so they are easy to elevate too. I can step up and hit these straight and high as I attack pins. The part that always sets Srixon apart for me is the sole grind. They continue to refine the V shape of the sole for ideal turf interaction. This for me is really what seals the deal. I like the V sole for relief while entering the turf and cleaner exits. It honestly works for the best turf interaction.

There is nothing better in golf than hitting a PURE Z-Forged iron shot into the green. The feel is perfect and the accuracy is excellent. I don’t lose a single stroke with these blades in the bag, actually my stat show I gain a full stroke with Z-forged irons in the bag. That might not seem like much, but that margin for error is fairly small. I am able to hit closer to the pin with the precision of the Srixon Z-Forged irons than with their Z785 irons. I highly recommend checking out the Srixon Z-Forged irons.
