STREET PRICE: $800 (set of eight, steel)
6-iron: 30, PW: 46
Callaway used feedback from its tour staff when deciding on the heel design (which helps reduce turf drag in the rough). A longer hosel helps move the center of gravity inward for better trajectory control. This version has a shorter blade-length than the X-20. Its minimal offset, narrow, beveled sole and chamfered top line appeal to better players.
"This is an operating tool that you can use to surgically tear apart the course. . . . If I had to play in a three-club tournament, this 6-iron would be one of them. . . . A super club for the low-handicapper who doesn't want to spend a lot of time practicing."
This sleeker version of the X-20 offers plenty of forgiveness and three versions of Royal Precision's Project X Flighted shafts (5.5, 6.0 and 6.5) standard. You know when people tell you to trust your swing? It's easier to do so when you're swinging these.
It's a little too bulky to be a true player's iron.
