Game-improvement irons have always been a strength for Callaway. Recently new Callaway X Hot irons have been released.
The name says it all. X Hot irons has been a reputable line recognized for distance and forgiveness. This technology optimizes stiffness across the face for more efficient energy transfer. The results is greater ballspeed and consistent distance, even on off-center contact. Relative to previous models, player testing resulted in an increase in ball speed and distance gains through the set and across the board.
The large, very thin face is designed to boost ball speed, and the most flexible part has been lowered to be more in line with the impact area. The center of gravity (GC) has also been kept low to produce a high launch angle. The Speed Frame Face maximizes ball speeds all across the face for longer, more consistent distance. Technology borrowed from our drivers has actually been applied to these irons to produce the higher ball speeds and explosive distance that you’re looking for.
"The X Hot Irons have been meticulously engineered - both in terms of physical characteristics and club configuration - to increase ball speed and promote overall distance optimization," said Dr. Alan Hocknell, SVP, Research & Development, Callaway Golf. "And in doing so I think we have raised the bar and created the standard in distance for the irons category. Golfers will very much enjoy the results."
Rounding out the X Hot Irons is the Feel Management Technology, a dual material medallion that fine tunes sound by promoting a crisp, dynamic feel at higher ball speeds. The stock shaft offering is a True Temper Speed Step 85 Lightweight Steel Shaft.
