Recently I tested the new Callaway X Forged 17 Irons. Callaway sent me the club to test for the purposes of writing a review for the Callaway Community.
Callaway X Forged Irons
On course testing during round. 5mph wind w soft conditions.
Club Characteristics (1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
Irons provided me slightly higher ball flight and a half club more distance. Great workability. A bit more negative feedback on off center hits compared to my Apex Pros 16.
(1=Very poor, 10=Outstanding)
|DISTANCE compared to my current irons||9/10|
|VERSATILITY compared to my current irons||9/10|
|CONTROL compared to my current irons||9/10|
|LAUNCH compared to my current irons||10/10|
Higher initial launch.
I have been searching for height without having to alter my swing very much. With these irons I get the higher launch without giving up thin top line and bladelike feel and workability.
Corrective issue of grip is smaller than I am used to.
Summary of My Experience with the X Forged 17 Irons:
Very positive review. Highly recommend!
@rwhitlow nice review. Can I assume this was the 3-P? Do you currently game a 3 iron? If so, how was the XForged 3 iron compared to your 3 iron?
I do not use a 3 iron. I’m a hybrid guy. I did test thru 4 iron. I had a good response with that club also.
