OK so I have two questions. One. I recently moved from off brand iron cast and quite large to call x tour forged. I'm having issues hitting. When I do connect it puts a smile to my face. Is it just practice to get to where I used to be? Also I only have the x tour PW and a cheap pinemeadow 60*. When I get the 60 working its money but I'm like 50% confident with it. I work on it a lot but not seeing improvement. Should I add a wedge? What degree? Or any drills or tips to perfect my short game?

Ideally you would be better suited with a Game Improvement iron. Forged/Blades are harder to hit because they are less forgiving and have a smaller sweet spot. Based on your HC index, the irons are going to be tough for you. Tips would be to post a thread in the Member Swing area and learn to swing more on plane in order to maximize your chances of hitting the sweet spot.

I played Callaway X20 and X20 Tour irons for awhile. Also, I tested the follow-on Callaway iron models.

Just for fun I had tried the 2007 and 2010 X Forged irons - about half the shots only got about 10 feet off the ground. The stiff shafts and low-launch heads were not for my game.

in 2012, a new version of X Forged came out with the RazrX iron family. To my surprise, I could get a decent launch from the new X Forged; however, I got about + 15 yards from the RaxrX model.

, As per @xilez , you're finding the XForged is less forgiving and has a smaller sweet spot than GI irons.

As for wedges, you might take a short-game lesson and select a wedge swing plan. As for G, S and L, you could save money if you got matching wedges from Callaway or Cleveland from models a couple of years back.

The 60º may give you problems until you get a more consistent short-game swing. (Hint: a good pro can show you a couple of LW secrets to help you out).

Thanks. I'm gonna give them a try for the rest of the season. Work daily or close lol. got some advice from others. And my HCP has changed drastically and the only thing holding me down is putting. Thanks I'll post in the other area for swing tips. And there are no pros in my area or even people that offer lessons. Sent from my DROID RAZR HD using Tapatalk
