That's what I have realized after almost a year of owning the X-14's, and trying out the X12, X16, X18, X20, X22, BB96, BB06 and BB08.

There is absolutely no difference between any of the above-mentioned irons. They all feel the same. They all even look the same except for very minor tweaks. The club faces on all the X series are almost identical to a point that you can't know which is which just from looking at the club face.

Which is a good thing for those who happen to like the irons, if it aint broke don't fix it. On the other hand if you're one waiting on something new, you're pretty limited within Callaway. If you don't like them, check out the X-Forged irons.

Not that I don't like them, I have the X14s and they're pretty good. I will be switching to Mizunos soon though. What I am talking about is that they don't really change anything with the new models. My $180 X14s are the same as the new $599 X22s.

My friend has X-14's and I have X-22's and we have hit each others clubs and we both think there is a difference but it could just be different for some people

I just think irons from the major manufacturers are so good nowadays, that the miniscule changes are hard to notice..

I agree completely. Subtle nuances are what I look for.

    • Yes, that’s my “former” swing. I felt way too close to the ball with the new swing, and was coming drastically out-to-in. (For what it’s worth, my previous instructor built my “former” swing on a template of Rahm and JT.)
    • That's… very close to the ball. Like Tiger level close, Finau level close. In the bottom photo, I like the swing on the left more. Is that the "former" swing?
    • Reverse Texas scramble... hell.  Golf messes up your head.
    • It means that you play too many reverse Texas scrambles and they are messing up your head. 
    • I followed your advice, @iacas, and took a lesson with a different instructor. He pointed out how much steeper my downswing was than my backswing, and how much lateral motion I exhibited. He attributed this to an overextended back that twisted, rather than turned, through the swing. This all made sense to me, but I am skeptical of his proposed solution: to keep my body weight over my legs by standing closer to the ball, arching my thoracic spine (instead of maintaining a flat spine as I had been previously taught), and having what feels like an extremely flat swing plane. I did nothing but top and hook the ball when I tried to follow his instruction. He did send me home with two annotated videos summarizing our lesson, which was an excellent touch I think all instructors should adopt. I’ve attached two stills from these movies comparing my current swing (left) and my attempt to implement the lesson (right) at P4. I went back to the range this morning with the intent of working on this new technique, but upon reviewing the video I am still swinging my old swing with a few small modifications inspired by the lesson—my swing plane is slightly flatter, and I’m standing closer to the ball with a natural spine curve. Unfortunately I’m still coming OTT and sending the ball 20 yards left or right of my target. Here’s a video of one of my best swings, in which the steep attack is still evident:
