If you are familiar with the Callaway X-14 and X-16 irons then you will be comfortable with the Callaway X-18 irons.

This standard version has the usual offset but the X-18 have a thinner top line and more perimeter weighting than their predecessors. The feel is solid with every club and certainly very easy to hit with a mid to low trajectory compared to the other Callaway irons.

The standard uniflex steel shaft makes these clubs a bit heavy for our liking. For mid handicappers who don't play Callaway and have the cash to burn then this is an ideal choice. If you already have X-14 or X-16 models it may be a harder decision to upgrade unless your old ones are ready for the scrapheap.

I love the Callaway X-18 irons. These were the clubs I stared golf with and they are great, they help amateurs get a lot of loft and distance without a perfect swing. Never mind that it says "mid to low handicappers", that’s rubbish, these are great for all players (until your a pro and fancy more feel and control!)

I am a big fan of the Callaway X-14 Pro Series and I think the new Callaway X-18 rions are a worthy successor. It provides more forgiveness than 'normal' irons whilst still giving all the performance I require. Felt the steel shafts made the club very heavy and that together with the heavy price tag means that this may be a little overweight for me.
