Callaway Steelhead XR

Our Review:

There's an old saying that there are few new ideas, only better execution. That could apply to the Steelhead XR. Callaway has taken the proven, reliable shape of its Steelhead X-14 iron of more than a decade ago and married it with the modern horsepower of the wraparound cupface found in its more recent irons. The result is a club with power where you need it. The center of gravity is low and deep in the long and middle irons for better performance on mis-hits, and the zippy face provides a turbo-boost near the USGA's limit on spring-like effect.
Specs: 6-iron: 26 degrees; PW: 44
Price: $800

    The feedback at impact is informative.

    Nice, low thump. The sweet spot feels like it's the size of a barn. Impossible not to flush it. Distance, accuracy, this is the total package. It's got carry for days. This is a club you want to bring home to Momma.
  • high
    There's a lot of technology straightening out your ball flight.
