X Forged

Our Review:

This version of the X Forged might strike knowledgeable golfers as similar to a Callaway forged iron from earlier this decade. Well, that’s on purpose. Born out of elite players saying they hit modern players irons too far, the X Forged focuses on subtle improvements instead of raw distance. The single-piece forging features a weight pad in the rear cavity that moves progressively through the set to optimize trajectory. It’s an old-school look with modern thinking.

Player Comments
  • low
    The ball jumped off the face, but in a controlled way.
  • mid
    I like how it cradles the ball at address. There’s a feeling of having an extra boost of metal behind the sweet spot.
