Our friend Jonathan Wall from PGATOUR.com scooped a photo of a new Callaway X-Forged iron being released in Japan, which he shared with the golf world on Twitter. It’s a long-anticipated release, and as such, GolfWRX Members are already responding here.
It’s definitely a happy Tuesday if you’re in Japan. The new X Forged look dirty. pic.twitter.com/02MjJhsJFp

The photo of the irons come from this Alba story, and from the translation we can discern that the new irons are due for release in Japan in mid-October. If you can read Japanese, you’ll likely glean further insights. The irons are not yet listed on Callaway’s Japan website.
Callaway’s last X-Forged iron release came in 2013, and the irons became the stuff of legend. Several Callaway Staffers are still using the irons on the PGA Tour, including Phil Mickelson (See Mickelson’s Full WITB).
