I have seen a lot of comments on the thread about people thinking they need to be a lower handicap to play the X-Forged irons.
In 2013 I wanted to get fit for a news set of clubs and really liked the looks of the 13 X-Forged Irons. At the time I was probably an 11-12 handicap and had never been lower than that since playing golf. My daughter had been taking lessons from Cindy Vinning in Fresno Ca. and with late notice had to cancel her lesson. Cindy agreed to give me the lesson and I explained that I wanted to be fit for clubs. The problem was that I could go out and shoot a 79 one day and turn around the following day and shoot an 89 playing the same course. My concern was that I didnt know which golfer was going to show up to get fitted. After taking the lesson I practiced regularly for 4 weeks puting together the 4-5 things she gave me to focus on. After the 4 weeks I was regularly posting a 79-84 and my handicap dropped to a 9-10. I finally felt confident enough in my swing to go down to Carlsbad and get fitted at the Callaway headquarters. After being fitted I chose to go with the X-Forged irons 4-PW with the KBS Tour shafts and over the next 18 months I was able to bring my handicap down to a solid 5-6.
I have been playing those same irons now for 5 years and yesterday I went down to Golf Dynamics in Loveland Co and got fitted for a new set of 2018 X-Forged irons with the KBS Tour 120 FLT shafts.
My point in all of this, is that I fully believe that the irons made a signicant contribution to getting my golf game to where it is today. My HCP has remained between a 6.3 to 8.0 and I enjoyed 5 wins on the Denver Golf Channel Am tour in 2015 in the Senior Hogan Division.
My last point is that if you take the time to get fitted and analyze the results of the fitting. Specifically looking for which club and shaft combination gives you the narrowest margins on your misses and not focus on which club gives you the most distance. You will obtain those scores that feel out of reach.
