Callaway Golf X-Tour Irons mark the Company's long-awaited entry into the forged iron market. The truly unique X-Tour Irons feature the playability and feel that better golfers demand while incorporating proprietary technologies. The X-Tour Irons are forged in 2 pieces ' a notch-weighted, cavity-back design and a face plate design ' made entirely from soft 1020 carbon steel. The body is forged as one piece with the back cavity and face platform precisely milled to accept the face, which is laser-welded to the body. This unique design process allows the X-Tour Irons to incorporate the core technologies that have made Callaway Golf irons the world's favorite: a 360 degree Undercut Channel, Extreme Notch Weighting and a modified bore through hosel.
As lead designer of the X-Tour Irons, Roger Cleveland, Chief of Design for Callaway Golf, used his years of club making experience to deliver an iron design that displays classic lines, not only from a technical standpoint but, equally important, from a visual perspective as well. The 360-degree Undercut Channel and Extreme Notch Weighting combine to maximise perimeter weighting and move more weight toward the heel and toe of the X-Tour Irons for added stability at impact, resulting in straighter shots. This feature further benefits golfers by providing a deeper Center of Gravity (CG) than most irons in this category, which truly makes it easier to hit the long irons with a higher launch. Additionally, because of mass location and a longer hosel than is typical of the Company's patented S2H2® Technology, Callaway Golf designers were able to position the CG more toward the heel for a shorter moment arm to provide easier workability.
