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 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?

yes and i think you dont lose distance with srixons forged irons like you do with mizunos

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.

In summary you have more selection and history with Mizuno in my opinion.

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.

To me the Mizzies don't have a lot of feel.

wow. to each his own i guess. most of the people who have hit mizunos here would argue they have the most feel .

Give is a break!!

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.

    • I thin that the fastest solution would likely be to practice your putting distance control and improve with your current equipment, but it is possible that your putter is a weight that will not work well for you. A way you could test it out is by going, ideally, to a course with several different types of putters for sale and asking if you could test them against your current putter on the practice green. Not all courses will do this, but many of the better courses will allow it if you leave the plastic on the putter or if they have a demo. You could also ask any golfing partners you have if you could borrow their putters to try out.
    • https://www.strackaline.com/#/course?courseId=696 It says that the Moon Valley book is event locked. I can't seem to find exactly what that means, but my guess is that it sounds like the course does not want the slope of their greens handed out to anyone and everyone unless they're playing in an event at the course. The website gives a number, however, to the phone of a man named Ben Malamitsas on that page to contact for pricing information and I'm sure he could give you a better idea of what the "event locked" designation means.
    • They have an online store. Don't know about your particular course. -Best, Marv
    • No, the hips do not move more than a few millimeters, maybe a centimeter at most, during a normal fundamentally sound putting stroke. The small amount of movements is just a small side to side sway caused by swinging a ~340 gram weight on a pendulum-esque arc while it's attached to your body. It's not a large enough movement to require the hips to turn. It's primarily a back and forth rocking motion, at least for me, of the shoulders. The hips have no place in the putting swing for me, and I haven't seen a proficient putter yet who does deliberately turn or sway with their hips, only very small motions that are side effects of swinging a weight around.
    • Those clubs you KNOW when you hit the sweet spot. Had a perfectly pure 4-iron on Friday afternoon that prompted Erik to ask me whether I needed a change of pants afterwords, but then again I probably was just getting a bit excited in the middle of the competition. If you hit a fair number of shots with them you can see if the penalty for mishits is acceptable to you based on how often and how badly you usually miss. The sweet spot is definitely a bit different than hitting it solid. Solid is going to feel really nice, and it's going to fly well, but the sweet spot is that ball that usually goes further than you expected. It's the drive you got 15 extra yards on, or the iron shot that flew the pin to land at the back of the green.
