Callaway X-24 Hot irons
Golf Monthly Verdict

The Callaway X-24 Hot irons are very easy to hit, providing a confidence-inspiring look of forgiveness at address. Anyone who generates medium-to-fast clubhead speed may struggle to control the trajectory of their shots. Finding the right shaft for your swing speed is essential. (Reviewed by GM's James Mason) PGA Pro verdict The next generation in the ‘X-Series' range looks fantastic with a new black gunmetal finish. Callaway is renowned for making irons that are extremely playable and these are no exception. The ball came off the club extremely high thanks to a low centre of gravity and lots of offset. The design has great bag appeal, however I would be interested to see how this finish ages. (Reviewed by John Jacobs)

Callaway's latest X series iron features a new PVD dark finish that minimises glare. More weight in the perimeter of the clubhead helps provide better accuracy. The variable face-thickness design creates a larger sweet spot and helps produce longer shots, even on strikes that miss the middle of the club.

The Callaway X-24 Hot irons will suit anyone after a genuinely forgiving set of irons and/or those looking for more distance throughout the set. 

Clearly aimed at the game-improvement end of the market, these promise high levels of forgiveness and deliver impressively. The dark finish is a departure for Callaway, but works well to make the ball stand out at address. Each of the irons we tested produced impressive distance, even in the short irons.
