What we say...

Srixon’s ZX fairway woods boast the same Rebound Frame technology as the brands ZX5 and ZX7 drivers, and they combine it with a brand new Cannon Sole design.

Srixon make no secret their focus has switched to decking out decent players with the equipment they desire. The thinking means the ZX Fairway specifically targets a fast, penetrating ball flight, and combines it with a really neutral head shape and face angle, which is just the sort of fairway wood set up modern pro’s and player’s expect.

What you need to know about the Srixon ZX Fairway wood:

Rebound Frame

The ZX fairway comes with a new rebound frame. Srixon say it provides a more efficient transfer of energy. It’s not just a new face though, it’s a whole new construction method. Two zones (the fairway face and body surrounding it) are specifically optimised to deform at impact and snap back, which Srixon say gives a more efficient transfer of energy than other driver designs.

Cannon Sole

Srixon say a new Cannon Sole helps achieve optimal weighting plus a faster, springier face. A floating weight pad is positioned just behind the face (but above the sole) and angled forward, Srixon say it resembles the shape of a cannon.  

The tech helps increases face flex and optimises the centre of gravity to provide the ideal launch conditions for how skilled golfers like to launch fairway woods from the turf.

Crown Step

Srixon and sister company Cleveland have toyed with crown steps for quite a few years. Srixon say the tech moves the centre of gravity down and increases overall MOI, which gives extra launch right alongside added distance and extra forgiveness, for great shot to shot consistency.

Think of it like hitting shots higher from the turf with extra help keeping shots in play from the tee and you won't go to far wrong.

Carbon Crown

Larger than the previous Z F85 fairway crown, the ZX fairways have carbon crowns in the 3W and 3W+. It means more mass low can be positioned low and deep and around the heads perimeter, which nudges MOI and forgiveness up.

Verdict: Srixon ZX Fairway Wood 

Like Srixon’s ZX hybrid, the matching fairway wood very nearly got among our top picks of the year in our 2021 Fairway Wood Test. The head is very cute, almost triangular in shape, and our test pro really liked the sound and feel.

It’s also very powerful, ranking among our longest fairways (T2 with the Honma T//World GS) of the year. If its name had cropped up among our drop-off categories for spin or distance protection (its 25-yard carry distance drop-off is sizeable), it would definitely be among our favourites.
