Callaway X Forged

Our Review:

The adage that there are few new ideas, only new execution, rings true here. Calling it a "reincarnation" of its X Forged from 2013, Callaway brings its newest ideas to the proven form of a five-year-old, single-piece forging. Trajectory (higher in the long irons, more controlled in the short irons) is managed by a weight pad in the back cavity, and a new groove design is intended to reduce fliers and improve spin control on shots out of the rough. The company's Apex Pro iron was a players iron for wannabes. This one is the real deal.
Price: Set of eight: $1,300

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
The feel is much softer than in past years. You get a consistent ball flight that is mid to high.
Mid-Handicapper
Workable with a balanced feel. It's super easy to curve the ball.
