Callaway X Hot Pro Irons meet and exceeds players demands….
Back in December 2012 Callaway Golf announced the launch of its Callaway X Hot and Callaway X Hot Pro Irons. We were exited to see a counter-punch initiative aimed to challenge Taylormade’s Rocketbladez irons. Callaway’s award-winning R&D department set out to deliver measurable distance gains with these two new, aggressive irons.
As soon as the box arrived at our offices I took an extended lunch break and headed to Plantation’s Preserve driving range. I got a chance to hit about 40 – 50 balls during my range session and shot after shot I was getting more and more impressed with these clubs. The clubs are soft and very forgiving and they must be at least 1/2 club longer than my current set of irons.
Three days after our initial test we set up camp with our launch monitor at Woodmont Country Club. We found via research that Callaway Golf is able to achieve an explosive blend of power, feel and pinpoint shot-making with these new irons with the use of some innovative technology. The Callaway X Hot Pro irons use J-Face Dynamics which is a new face technology that provides pro performance with the distance, feel and workability that better players demand. As you progress into the longer irons, 6, 5 and 4 you can feel that “trampoline” effect found in titanium drivers, part of the effect comes from an under channel located in lower the back of the iron.
In addition of the J-Face Dynamics, the irons also have feel management technology which fine tunes sound while also providing crisp, dynamic feel and playability. Every single shot taken with these clubs feel solid, even shots taken near the toe or heel of the club, just an outstanding feel! New J-Face Dynamics also combine precise control of face thickness and undercut depth for a blend of power, feel, shot making accuracy and forgiveness at higher ball speeds.
Callaway hit the nail on the head with these irons. In my opinion they were purely designed to cater golfers between 7 hcp to about 14 hcp. These players are either great strikers of the ball who now want a little more forgiveness out of their irons to mid-handicap players looking for a better performance irons. It is a beautiful iron with a thin sole and top line that mid-low handicap players enjoy, but also has the forgiveness of a game improvement iron. The stock shaft is the great performing Project X Flighted. Again, Callaway’s X Hot Pro line will surprise many people, even if they have never played Callaway before.
Our sincere congratulations to Callaway Golf on yet another outstanding product. For more information please visit Callaway Golf
