I would give Mizuno the nod on just about everything over Srixon as far as clubs go.

But Srixon does make great balls.

Why would you say that? I assume you have hit both brands and have formulated your own opinion based on your own criteria, correct? Seems like Mizuno would be the popular choice because very few people play Srixon equipment. The I701's are some of the sweetest irons I have ever hit (and I have pretty much hit them all). Too bad the masses can't get past the stigma that is attached to many of the "off" brands because there is some wonderful equipment out there that can be had for very little cost.

I can only compare the I701 Tour irons though as I have not hit any other Srixon irons. I played a round with our pro's 701's with X100 shafts. Like I said, they are fantastic clubs that perform well in every category. As well as Mizuno's? Yes, even better for me. The new Z-TX's look awesome, can't wait to get my hands on them. Can't speak on either companies woods.

Correct. I tried both brands at a local Foxy Golf store about a week ago since I'm looking for a new set of irons for next season.

I have the i701 tours and they are great irons. To me the Mizzies don't have a lot of feel.

I love both brands. Actually I don't think I will ever be playing with any irons in the future except for my beloved 3 brands: Mizuno, Srixon and Bridgestone. Yes, they two things in common: Japan and forged.

Not to diss any other brands, but I just love these guys.

Which would leave me to believe that you have experience with the two companies woods as well as with their irons. So what about the woods?

It's not so much that you're losing distance with Mizuno, so much as that Srixon has stronger lofts in comparable irons.

To answer the original question, I wasn't able to compare them - I didn't even see a Srixon iron I could swing (literally; no demo days, no clubs in stock) until after I had purchased my current set.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but wanted to weigh in on Srixon irons. I was able to pick up a used set of Srixon i-302 irons with Rifle FCM 5.0 the other day for $90, on a whim. Frankly, after a few days on the range with them, I am stunned at how good they are. Most of the pub I could find on them was generally positive, but it's a whole different thing to actually hit them. To me, they are very much in line, if not better, than the Mizuno irons I've hit like the MP-62 (which I dearly love). Very soft feel, with that trademark forged "swoosh" sound when hit flush. I almost feel guilty for getting them so cheap now.

I was playing Nicklaus N-1 "The Bear" irons, and these seem to have a touch less distance. I can also see the cavity in the 3-iron at address but I'll get over it. These clubs are marvelous.

You don't hear about them very much? Robert Allenby Tim Clark Jim Furyk for starters. Hardly minor players, especially this year.

Good luck finding them in Edmonton. Srixon doesn't have as many iron lines (choices) in general, and they're not overly popular in Alberta . . . yet.

I'd say of the two brands, Srixon is a touch ahead.

Srixon takes the woods category. Srixon's Cleveland brand makes very good woods, notably the HiBore and Launcher. Mizuno's woods (including their titanium fairways) are more expensive, are not nearly as well regarded.

Neither brand is known for their hybrids, but a slight edge goes to Mizuno for its Fli-Hi hybrid irons, which are very nice.

Irons is a wash. Both brands make fantastic forged irons. Mizuno has a slight edge in variety, but both brands make forged game improvement, players, and blade type irons, although Srixon's blades are very rare.

Wedges goes to Srixon, their Cleveland brand's 588 and CG-12 are among the most popular wedges ever made. Mizuno's wedges are good, but not as highly regarded as Cleveland's wedges.

Putters are more or less evenly split, with Srixon's Cleveland and Never Compromise line both producing great putters, and Mizuno's Bettinardi producing equally fine putters.

Balls goes to Srixon, as Mizuno doesn't make them. Even considering that, Srixon balls are second to none.

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.

    • PGA Tour Caddies file class-action suit against PGA Tour for use of likeness, bibs
      It's just funny to me since the PGA Tour isn't their employer. The golfers are, so every case they file against the PGA will be tossed out immediately on that grounds alone.  The players require caddies to wear bibs since the players are fined if they don't. The PGA has nothing to do with the transaction besides providing a uniform for the caddy with the entrance fee.
