Callaway Introduces 2013 X Forged Irons!

47 posts in this topic

FIRST LOOK: 2013 Callaway X Forged irons

Crafted by Callaway Chief Designer Roger Cleveland, the Callaway X Forged Irons, Callaway says the new face design, sole profile and optimized CG Height Progression will benefit all parts of your game, including distance, while making golfers happy with it's appearance.

The X Forged irons newest feature is a progressive CG height modeled after Callaway’s Muscleback irons. The CG position in the long X Forged irons is lower to promote a higher launch and increased carry. CG in the shorter irons is higher for a flatter trajectory and more consistency.

The X Forged irons come standard with the new, top-of-the-line Project X Pxi shaft. It is lighter, softer and is a constant weight shaft.

The irons will retail for $999.99 (8 clubs) and will be available on Jan. 25, 2013.

Look for more information and images to come in our Bag Drop Blog. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask and I'll pass them along to Callaway so we can get them answered here on in our Bag Drop

Like the new design, think it's an upgrade from the RAZR X-Forged? Discuss!

Look very nice...I love irons that don't have badges and colors all over them. Simple and elegant.

I don't know how I'd like the flatter trajectory in the shorter irons, though.  Also, I can feel my hands hurting on a mis-hit already!

The Callaway Golf RAZR X Musclebacks were legit.  I hit them this past spring at the Callaway Ely fitting center here in Carlsbad.  The new 2013 X-Forged look similar in shape, but cleaner and more refined.  Definitely look like great clubs.  And if they perform like the RAZR X Musclebacks... I'd say Callaway has a winner.

Can we get some top line photos posted?  I'd like to see the offset too (or preferably lack thereof).

Ah, Chip Brewer gets his one name guy, Cleveland, working.

I'm awaiting the Callaway forged VAS Irons!

Joking!

(I owned a set of VAS irons)

I bet the Callaways interact well with the turf. They are very attractive. Satin?

Looks like the sole is a dull chrome (like a Mizuno) from the pics, not the satin they've had from the past few models

I personally like that more myself, though on bright days you better wear sunglasses.

Yeah, I have the MP-59's.  They look pretty - but you're right.  Sometimes you can get a flash effect if the Sun is just right.

I agree 100%. I dislike irons that look like they belong at a NASCAR event. Besides that, after a few years of "bag chatter", they really look beat up. Simple and clean looks beautiful to me.

The top 2 or 3 versions of Razr were pretty nice. A buddy has the Razr X forged (similar to the older X forged but with straighter lines like a Triumph TR7) and they look and feel great. I'm sure the MBs were awesome too. It's all those other versions that were awful. Like almost the entire Diablo line.

Like them a lot. I try to maintain a black/silver policy and those can sneak into my bag anytime they want.

Gives you an idea, I'll try to get some better pics of "address".  I think this top line looks thicker than it actually is due to how the club is sitting.

    • My Swing (Hardspoon)
      Good practice session today.  I reviewed the grip thread one more time before I went out, and made that a point of emphasis before every shot. My focus was to continue to groove the in-to-out path I've been working on, but to start to really work on proper clubface angle.  My tendency right now (when I take the "correct" grip) is to leave the face open at impact, leading to straight pushes and push-fades. It's not easy, but I did have some success, starting with slow-motion swings and working up to (what felt like) 80-90%.  I focused on using the move that @iacas explained in Erie (hand rotation, not a "wrist-flip") to get the face squared up.  I was able to hit some nice push-draws and straight draws with both the irons and driver...not consistently, but it was encouraging. I also bought a tripod adapter for my iPhone so I can try some 240fps recordings of my swing this weekend.

      It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to learn the rules.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      I took a look at your my swing thread - looks like you've gotten some good advice there and made some solid improvements.  FWIW - I posted this thread here called "What is the Secret of the Golf Swing" . .and I said that, for me, it was realizing how not to aim at the ball.  This "realization" helped me fix a lot of the things I see in your swing.  I'd been told lots and lots of times - don't hit at the ball, swing through to the target . but it didn't make sense to me . .until one day it suddenly did.  Anyway - while I suffered from this misconception - I had a variety of bad shots.  On my good days I could hit it pretty good.  On my bad days anything could happen . .I could slice it, hit it fat, pull hook it, top it, skull it, etc.  Anyway - it's not as easy as just "don't hit at the ball" . .or, as I think of it.  .don't aim "the energy of your swing at the back of the ball".   Speaking just for myself, it took a lot of practice and lessons to get to where I could "suddenly have this realization".  But . .in the meantime - you are hitting it fat (or whatever) because you're making a lot of corrections for some fundamentals that are off.  And, for sure, fatigue would have a lot to do with it.  The more fatigued you are, the less likely you'll be to make this corrections successfully .  If you get lessons or sign up for evolvr or just keep posting in the myswing thread - you can get the (slow) way forward - it's by focusing on one thing and then the next and then the next and yada yada.  I couldn't say what your "next thing" to work on is, though.     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge May 2016
      Practicing different speeds of backswing almost making a drill of it.  Super slow checking positions, then slow, then kind of slow and swing  . I think I had one day of my reply to topic not posting bc sometimes my phone is crappy but was able to do the next morning and had two entries that day.  Its up to the powers that be if I completed the challenge.
