THP has a sneak peek into one set of irons that might be making its way into a few tour players’ bags this coming season. There has been a lot of early buzz during testing behind the scenes on this set and with that the pictures you can see by clicking the link at the bottom of the info will tell you why.
Crafted by Callaway Chief Designer Roger Cleveland, the Callaway X Forged Irons combine 1025 Carbon Steel and a pure forging process to offer unmatched feel and extreme precision. Extensive feedback from the professional Tours contributed to Callaway’s development process, ensuring that the X Forged irons have the look, sound, feel and performance preferred by the world’s best players. A new face design, sole profile and optimized CG Height Progression through the line delivers distinct performance advantages, including distance, in a great-looking package.
CG Height Progression
The X Forged irons feature a CG height progression modeled after Callaway’s Muscleback irons, offering better players the trajectory they demand in a sleek, players iron. The CG position in the long X Forged irons is lower to promote a higher launch and increased carry. CG in the shorter irons is higher for a flatter trajectory and more consistency.
Project X Pxi Shaft
The X Forged irons come standard with the new, top-of-the-line Project X Pxi shaft. It is lighter, softer and is a constant weight shaft. The Pxi offers Tour-caliber spin control and tip stability in a lightweight package. From butt to tip the shaft has been stiffness calibrated for optimal feel.
20° Closed Space V Groove
Aggressive, tightly spaced groove design offers unparalleled consistency and remarkable shot-shaping ability.
Triple Net Forging
Callaway’s precise Triple Net Forging process ensures extremely tight tolerances from iron to iron that cannot be achieved with conventional methods.
