Srixon Z-TX Clubs – Sneak Peak

| August 25, 2009 | 6 Comments

As a fan of Srixon golf equipment I’m always excited to see what new clubs Srixon will bring to the market. While their lineup has remained unchanged in the United States for a few years, they continue to release new clubs in the Australasia market. With the popularity in Japan and the use of the new clubs on the professional tours, the new line of clubs will be introduced in the USA sometime this fall, and when I get more details and the release date I’ll update this post. The new drivers, fairways and irons will be called Z-TX, and they are also putting out a new hybrid. We are one of the first people to see these new clubs – check out the photos!

    will they have a graphite shaft option?

    I don’t think you will see a graphite shaft option. I know they will probably offer the Project X and Nippon Steel shafts as custom options. Here’s the latest info I have on the new irons:
