I am a 18 hc and was wondering if 07 x forged are to much

My preference is with the forged. Mine are old, but I will never go back to GI. I am not that good, but I can definitely tell the difference. I do not know if Callaway put any of the Hogan technology into their irons since they took over or if the Diablo Edge has any "roots" in the Hogan Edge having never hit one. The only other cast irons that I liked, were my Titleist DCI Blacks. They were cavity backs, but had the feel of forged blades.
I played the X20 irons for two seasons, but switched to X20 Tour because they had more feel (and, I stumbled across a Tour set shafted in 5.0 R-flex).
The X Forged from 2007 and RazrX Forged from 2011 were both too much club for me. Lots of DG S300 and PX 6.0 shafts in those models. Even in a set shafted in 5.5, I had a lot of low shots that didn't even register on the launch monitor. I think I just didn't have the clubhead speed to make the ball jump.
The new 2013 X.Forged was a different story. I hit some 6i shots with the PXi 5.5 shaft, and got a nice high ball without too much effort.
As for 2007 model, Maltby gave it a fairly high rating for user-friendliness - you'll just have to try them out. Again, the shaft and you swing speed will be critical.
Just went to dicks and hit the 3 forged models they had... calloway x , ping 56 and anser forged... IOut of all I hit the callaway besy. Had the best soft feel IMO.. I hit it consistantly. Sweet spot on these clubs are more towards the heel from what I experienced..
This was my first time hitting forged... It took me 3 hits to find the sweet spot.. Once I found it it was great butter soft feel. You knew when it was right on... Dispersion was best also with the callaway... The visual was also better IMO then the other two...
After I hit some of the game improvment like the X hots... I could tell you I had a harder time finding the sweet spot...Its more middle and low and thats not how I swing..
I know it sound odd and I should hit GI's beeter but I dont...
Note: You need to know I have been playing 30 yrs and only had two sets of clubs... Walter hagen blade...1972 set and 1995 staff mid size wilsons.... I am looking to upgrade myself and after today with hitting the forged, this is what I am getting for christmas... Why go backwards.....???
