Srixon ZX 3 Wood Review
One All-Around Performing 3 Wood
This is the definitive Srixon ZX 3 Wood Review for 2021.
I played 5 rounds of golf with this club in my bag and have over 10 years of experience testing and reviewing golf clubs.
Here is my overall experience and thoughts on this club.
The Srixon ZX 3 wood is part of the new ZX family which continues to impress in both the looks and performance category. You can see the Srizon ZX7 irons review here that put those clubs at the top of the class. I’ve been blown away by the ZX utility iron. The ZX 3 wood is one of those consistent clubs that performs from any lie, in any situation with consistently good results. It isn’t a one-trick pony, but excels in all areas of performance. It isn’t the longest, most anti-slice, lowest spin or most forgiving; it is however good at all of those things which means you’ll have zero worries with the Srixon ZX 3 wood in the bag.
The Srixon ZX 3 wood is an easy launching 3 wood with very low back weights along with a carbon fiber crown. These features are highlighted with visible reminders about the Rebound Frame sole and exposed fiber on the crown. It has a shallow-ish face which makes it easy to lift off the fairway or even light rough, but it also sit nicely behind the ball on the tee. The shape is slightly triangular but not extreme, just not as rounded as some models out there. It has a step crown which has been part of Srixon’s design for a few models. The shape, design and feature make it easy to set-up behind the ball and point the club in the right direction. The face and sole are done in black with red and silver accents which makes this club look nice in the bag and compact behind the ball.
The Srixon ZX 3 wood creates confidence on the course because it is consistently good. While I have 3 woods that are longer, they also can be further off-line. I have lower launching and lower spinning 3 woods which also don’t finish in the same spot if course conditions change. I have 3-woods that refuse to go right, but sometimes that means they go left. The ZX 3 wood really just goes straight and consistently the same distance. This makes it easy to plan and play shots because these is no questions about going to long, or not hitting high enough or getting into trouble right or left. Don’t get fooled into thinking you need the longest 3-wood on the market, that may actually hurt your game.
The Srixon ZX 3 wood is paired stock with the Project X HAZRDUS Smoke black shaft which offers lower spin, strong launch and yet really nice feel. This combined with the solid feel of the head you have muted, great feel at contact. The ball feels like it explodes off the face. I found it to be very straight hitting and controllable. It launches quick enough to carry over a corner guarded by trees. It lands softly enough to hold greens on long par 3s or on par 5 approaches. This club just performs consistently good on the course.
