Calling @JDax... Would you be able to put up your comparible numbers for the Srixon ZX5 irons and your XXIO numbers? I have not seen the ZX5 in person, but from my memory of the Srixon 5 series, the two seem very much like siblings, which isn’t surprising, since they are sibling companies.

I may or may not have a set of these in my hands.

I also may be extremely intrigued.

I am going to start a rumor that I may have a set of these irons in the bag down at Wolf Creek in Mesquite, Nevada on Friday.

Did you buy new or used, hypothetically speaking?

Do they offer to demo a complete set or just a head? I think that opportunity is just great when you can take out onto course, on real grass....best way to test IMO. Have fun...looking forward to your feedback.

It wasn’t clear from reading the website whether you could demo a complete set or simply an iron, a driver, etc. My impression was that you could demo a complete set. Essentially, you are committing to purchase it up front, but you have the option to send it back for a demo fee.

Well, let’s just say that the first session with the XXIO irons was memorable. I have never had this happen to me in my life. I hit the 7 iron and at impact with the mat, the shaft snapped. So much for testing them down at Wolf Creek on Friday.

I will say that until this 7 iron failed, I was seeing some pretty mind boggling ball speed through the set. As high as anything I have ever hit, including the Epic Forged irons.

That’s a bummer. You could reshaft to steel fibers and have a set of 🔥 throwers....

I thought that they felt great, not as soft and satisfying as my Cobra Tour MIMs, but certainly as good as anything in that’s size of profile. I am totally bummed that I don‘t get to play them tomorrow.

I have a fitting with Club Champion for this coming Saturday to focus on these irons.

That really sucks, any warranty? Never seen an iron shaft break like that. I guess you could play with them, just with no 7 iron. BTW...nice looking irons.

I have 30 days to return them. I am going to do my iron fitting with Club Champion. If I find a shaft I really love, I likely will just restart them. If not, I will look into the return.

I don't know where you are doing your fitting, and what they carry, but if they have the Kinetixx Ballistic shafts, try them out. The iron heads came alive for me when I dropped those in. Tightened dispersion and gave me more distance.

I will definitely take your advice. The one session on TrackMan when the shaft snapped on the 7 iron, I was not quite seeing the type of dispersion I would want, but I could see the potential for sure.
