The Srixon Utility iron is designed to fit the ZX5 and ZX7 irons and fits seamlessly with the following irons. It is available as irons 2, 3 and 4 with 18°, 20° and 23° lofts. Available in both right and left hand. Because the Srixon Utility is made of soft steel, it can be easily adjusted to fit loft and lie without leaving a mark. You can therefore perfectly match it to your iron set and adjust the gaps between irons and woods accordingly.
The Srixon Utility is a "Hollow Construction" iron. This type of construction allows you to build exactly the desired characteristics into the iron. A driving iron of this type should not only allow high ball speeds, but also provide a high MOI and launch. Srixon manages to achieve that despite the relatively compact design. The club head is relatively small and the club face is not particularly long (for a driving iron). The head is relatively deep, allowing a centre of gravity far behind the ball.
Visually, the Srixon Utility does not differ much from the ZX5 and ZX7 irons. Therefore it is ideal to be combined with these irons. The shaft selection is also identical to the Srixon irons, so that you can match it perfectly with them.
The technology in the Srixon Utility is similar to the Srixon ZX5. The so called "Main Frame" is crucial. It is a clubface that has been optimised through countless artificial tests. Artificial intelligence is used to determine how the clubface maximises the ball speed for a typical amateur's strike pattern, while keeping it relatively constant.
The Srixon Utility is great as driving iron off the tee, but can also be used to attack greens thanks to its high launch. It is particularly suitable for players who have difficulty with hybrids and prefer the feel of an iron.
Available from February 2021.

About Srixon Golf
There is hardly a manufacturer in the golf industry with a longer history. As early as the 1930s, Srixon was a leader in the development of golf balls. In the 1960s Srixon was taken over by Sumitomo Rubber Industries and with the appropriate partnerships it was possible to develop their golf balls further. For example, Srixon had a large share in the famous Balata balls and today holds over 800 patents. No wonder that Srixon still produces some of the best golf balls today.
Srixon is committed to the highest standards of precision and is not afraid to try anything to get an advantage, no matter how small. Although Srixon started to develop golf clubs much later, it soon became apparent that Srixon also had a very good command of this craft. So it was also possible to launch the XXIO Hot Driver - Srixon's sister brand - one of the longest drivers on the market. Already in 2006 more than 200 tour professionals were signed and convinced by Srixon equipment. Among these players were Jim Furyk and Henrik Stenson. Today, the figureheads of Srixon are mainly Graeme McDowell, Shan Lowry and Keegan Bradley.
With the new ZX Series it is clear that Srixon has mastered the latest technology not only in balls but also in clubs. The new driver, for example, is considered a particularly "hot potato" by experienced club fitters. Srixon no longer needs to hide from anyone even in the "high-tech" driver market.
When it comes to irons, Srixon has always been able to rely on Japanese forging technology. The Srixon ZX7 are forged from one piece. The ZX5 and ZX Utility, on the other hand, incorporate a little more technology. But this is exactly what is required for the performance of these clubs.
