Tell you, I got a great opportunity to be one of the first golfers to hit their new 2013 Callaway X Hot Irons. I picked up 2mph ball speed from last years model, launching it slightly higher with good spin numbers.

There was a time when a discussion about distance meant you were either talking about drivers or golf balls, but today manufacturers tout the yards you'll gain on every club except your putter. callaway x-24 irons With the release of the new X Hot irons, Callaway is looking to make a loud statement in the distance debate.

Luke Williams, Callaway's senior global director of woods and irons, says, "When you hit a 6-iron, you want to look up and see that trajectory that you expect from a 6-iron, you'd just like it to fly longer, so that's what we've tried to do with the X Hot."

To do that, Callaway designed the X Hot irons using two different types of stainless steel. The chassis has been made with a softer steel, Cheap Golf Clubs and the hitting area is made from a harder steel. That allowed Callaway to make the face thinner, save some weight, and then redistribute the weight behind a large channel in the back.

A multi-material medallion has been attached to the back of the club to help improve the sound and feel created at impact. callaway diablo edge irons Combined with stronger lofts and longer shafts in the long-irons, the result is a hotter hitting area, a lower center of gravity (CG) and shots that should fly higher and farther.
