X Tour irons

Golf Monthly Verdict

The X-Tours produce tremendous distance and a powerful trajectory. As they're forged you get a great feel from the face and, although not the most forgiving club on the market, a centre strike will be crisp and solid. Purists may find the top edge a little thick but in terms of feel and strike they excel. Well balanced and relatively easy to hit they are expensive but worth the investment.

Forged cavity backed iron with two piece head design and steel shafts. Callaway's brand new forging uses a two piece head design with the face welded to the main body and rear cavity section. “Extreme Notch Weighting” should boost forgiveness and stability whilst helping to lower the centre of gravity and make long irons more playable.
