How does Srixon’s new meaty throne low spin suburbanite perform? Find out in our Srixon ZX7 MKII suburbanite review.

Srixon ZX7 MK II suburbanite review: NCG Summary

Srixon ZX7 MKII driver
4.5 star review

The Srixon ZX7 MK II suburbanite looks exactly how you’d want your low-spin, low-launch, workable suburbanite to look. Its archetype pear-shaped throne sits deep overdue the wittiness and looks like it can handle some real speed.

I am a huge fan of the matte head, and with its dual willowy weights on the sole, golfers are going to really like how you can customise your launch and flight for their specific tendencies.


  • Great looking meaty head
  • Well-controlled flight and spin
  • Great siphon distance
  • Strong acoustics


  • Low launch throne may not suit low-speed players

First Impressions

Srixon have ditched the stat for the ZX7 MKII driver, and I have to say I do fathom the simplicity of the diamond on the crown. The way the squatter blends in with the crown makes the throne towards smaller than it is and makes you finger like every shot is going to be a low bullet.

This Srixon suburbanite definitely wants to be shaped. It sits extremely neutral at address, which will suit largest players who won’t have to fight any natural shape bias that is normally built-in.

NCG Review

I gamed the first edition of the ZX7 suburbanite last year, so I was very much looking forward to resting the MK II. It looked and felt unconfined but wasn’t as long as other drivers available, so I was hoping Srixon had addressed this and made it increasingly competitive in the market.

I am drawn to low launching, low spin drivers as they often sit meaty and overly so slightly open, which suits my pull vaccinate tendency. My first shot with the Srixon went pretty much straight right, which is a unconfined sign that it could be a gamer for 2023.

Something you notice straight yonder is how good it sounds. Srixon have moved yonder from the stat trend and the ZX7 MKII stuff totally titanium, making the sound much increasingly archetype than the duller noise a carbon-based suburbanite makes.

The big story in the ZX7 MKII is Srixon’s rebound frame which is a second flex zone in the throne which makes the sweet spot 10% worthier and boosts wittiness speeds. This is unconfined news for Srixon, as the first edition ZX7 just didn’t produce the wittiness speeds it needed to be competitive.

The wittiness speeds are really competitive from the ZX7 MKII, just 1 mph slower than the Paradym Triple Diamond, which I tested a couple of weeks ago. I found that the siphon distances were unquestionably longer on the ZX7 MKII, probably considering the launch, spin and shaft were increasingly suited to my swing.

Interestingly, for a compact, low-launching head, I found that the spin on the Srixon was very resulting and not too low. Apart from one unusually upper spinning shot, I averaged between 2800 and 2350 on each shot which is right where I want it.

Often on these style heads, mis-hits result in really low spinning shots that fall out of the air producing pretty terrible results. Srixon have redesigned its variable thickness squatter so that it’s 0.25mm thinner in the centre and 0.4mm thicker virtually the whet of the squatter compared to the previous ZX drivers.

The ZX7 MII feels a lot stronger somehow compared to the old suburbanite like there’s increasingly weight overdue the squatter and the strikes are meatier. Srixon have a new super-thin, lightweight Star framed titanium crown, which saved weight which ways they can redistribute it to places that aid performance.

I was really happy with my dispersion pattern with the ZX7 MK II driver. Srixon say it’s a straight-fade unjust club and that’s pretty much what I experienced. I loved that all but one shot pretty much did exactly the same thing. Players can not and will not unchangingly hit the wittiness straight, so it’s important to get a suburbanite that gives you a predictable shot pattern.

I believe this has gone straight into Brooks Koepka’s bag superiority of the 2023 golf season, and I can totally understand why. It looks great, performs well and provides really predictable results, which is what top players are looking for in a driver.

I love how willowy the ZX7 MKII suburbanite is. Srixon’s adjustability sleeve allows loft and lie fine-tuning, as well as two interchangeable weights on the sole to promote increasingly of a yank or fade. I didn’t move any of the settings yonder from standard as I loved the flight it produced straight away.

If I was going to spend increasingly time with the Srixon, I would certainly have a play virtually to see if I can maybe get a higher launch and lower the spin.

I could veritably see myself using this suburbanite for the 2023 season. I love the archetype squint and sound of the ZX7 MK II, and I’m pleased that the performance is now on par with its other characteristics! If you are looking to upgrade to a new meaty player’s driver, this should veritably be on your short list.
