Callaway X hot irons - regular shaft
February 18, 2014
Ordered them, picked free ground, it took 7 days to get here as scheduled. Opened the shipping box and all irons were in their own bags, all were in perfect condition. Thank you Rock Bottom! Great price for 2013 irons -
These irons were the same loft as my Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons. Instead of a stiff shaft I chose the Regular. And I'm glad I did, first took them to the driving range to hit them. I hit 2 large buckets of balls, they were very forgiving, 95% of my shots were straight. Even when I miss hit a few on the heal and toe they went straight.
Then on Sunday, played them for their first true round, Again they were straight shooters, again glad I went to the Regular shaft vs stiff.
Pros:Great set of Irons 5 thru PW
Straight hitting, even if missed hit both toe and heal
They launch the ball mid high, good for me.
Grips are not hard but firm
I like the white shaft (graphite)
Cons:Standard Callaway grips seem to have a sharp edge at the top.
(Little sand paper takes care of that)
