Will The New Srixon ZX Mk II Metalwoods Be A Worthy Rival To The Big Brands?

Srixon’s hardware has really impressed us in recent times and things look to be getting even better in 2023, standing toe-to-toe with the major players in the metalwood categories like TaylorMade, Callaway, Ping and Titleist. The previous ZX5 and ZX7 drivers were designed to help generate more speed and distance, courtesy of the brand’s unique Rebound Frame Technology. It worked by layering alternating zones of flexibility at impact for more distance – and it’s fair to say they were a big hit, and provided one at impact too. But what has changed for the Mk II range in 2023?

What is the new technology?

The all-new ZX Mk II woods are said to provide even more power at impact, which is largely down to a stronger Rebound Frame design. Rebound Frame’s two flex zones work together to generate enhanced ball and distance: Zone 1, the driver face, deforms inwardly at impact; Zone 2, a ring of flexibility offset from the face, deforms outwardly. When these two zones snap back to shape just after impact, the compounded energy transfer is more powerful and efficient than standard designs. The brand says that overall, Rebound Frame adds a 10 percent larger High COR area to the face.

Meanwhile, both the ZX Mk II and ZX5 Mk II feature a variable thickness face pattern that is 0.25mm thinner at its centre and 0.4mm thicker at the perimeter than the last generation, refinements that add even more COR across the face for added ball speed and distance. 

What are the models and who are they aimed at?
