The XR Irons are the first high speed, cavity back, cup-face iron. Our improved 360 Face Cup technology provides outrageous ball speed all across the face.
PLAYABILITY: Almost pre-programmed to go high and
straight, with easy altitude throughout the set; no issues in the rough;
a few guys could work the ball, but overall maneuverability is
limited—responds best to the simple orders “Grip” and “Rip.”
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Standout forgiveness for a game-improvement club—for a lot of panelists, at or near the head of its class; an effortless iron with tons of help across the entire face; some of the most user-friendly long irons around—has several testers rethinking the hybrids in their bag.
DISTANCE CONTROL: An out-and-out mauler; eye-opening length—for many testers, the XR iron plays at least half a club beyond what they’re currently carrying; a few guys say that misses with the XR fly farther than many irons’ good shots.
FEEL: Easy on the joints—a lightweight, shock absorber of an iron; good stability through the ball; a couple of testers put their egos aside and praised the responsiveness of the graphite Project X shaft.
LOOK: Classic Callaway setup has its fans; an everyman’s iron, offset and somewhat oversize, but only real sticklers complain; burly topline that masks a ton of tech underneath; a comforting club to look down at with your match on the line.
As tested, best suited for smooth, even swings—guys with fast moves or quick tempos reported loose results with some directional misses; for several panelists, it’s tough to feel the club during the swing, and there’s little differentiation at impact between center hits and misses; the large, hot-faced head isn’t beloved by all on greenside shots.
BOTTOM LINE: The XR irons provide outstanding length and forgiveness. They’re a good choice for a slower swinger stepping up in class from a max game-improvement or hybrid-iron set—just keep your demands simple and let the club do the heavy lifting.
