The Callaway X-Forged irons are a big improvement on their predecessors, the X-Tour irons.

They have a more classic look combined with the forgiveness you would expect from Callaway.

Whilst they were very good, in this very competitive sector we felt they were a little on the heavy side and the feedback from the forged head was compromised a little by the extra weight from the notch system.

The X-Forged irons are a good club, but if a better player wants forgiveness then the X-20 Tours would seem ideal and if he wants a classic forged iron then there are others on the market that we fell are better. Phil and Ernie will like them though!

I am a former college player with a current 4+ hdcp (68 stroke avg). I have both the 2009 Callaway X Forged irons and the 712 Titleist CB irons. I have found that the distance comparison has shown the Callaway to be almost a full club stronger and more forgiving on miss hits.

Unbelievable consistency. My 6 iron goes 155 yards on every shot. The 9 iron goes 115 every time.

The Callaway X-Forged irons were very, very impressive. The best set of irons in my opinion that Callaway have ever made. Look stunning and hit the ball just as well. Have that look about them that just makes you want to play golf. Would put them in my bag right now.
