Callaway launches a new X Forged UT driving iron

Published

on

For Tour players and amateurs alike, driving irons have become a popular and versatile option off the tee. Callaway began offering the Apex UT in 2014, and you’ll still find this club in a number of Tour players’ golf bags. Now, there will be a new driving iron in Callaway’s stable of products: a Callaway X Forged UT. This is the utility iron version of the company’s new X Forged irons that it released in mid-October.

The X Forged UT was designed based on feedback from its Tour staffers, and it has a CG (center of gravity) that’s positioned in the center of the face, and it’s designed for a low, penetrating ball flight, according to Callaway. There’s a also a Tungsten-infused insert to help produce more forgiveness, and the face has Callaway’s familiar 360 Face Cup for increased ball speeds on off-center hits.

They will come in 18, 21, 24 27 and 30 degree lofts with stock Project X 6.0 shafts, and will sell for $249.99 apiece starting on January 19.

    Well, I guess it’s time for cally to bring out a new flavor of the month or is it flavor of the week? I get confused by so many releases of the new better than ever club.Looks striking like the Wilson-Staff V6 model !!! the V6 looks better and it was selected the best Forged irons of 2017.

      Rich … Firstly this is a utility iron, aka driving iron – hybrid replacement. This is only the third of this style of club callaway has released in almost 5 years. You are complaining about something you clearly have no clue about.

Srixon launches new Soft Feel Brite golf balls

Published

on

Srixon has introduced the second generation of its Soft Feel Brite golf balls which arrive in highly visible orange, green and red color codes.

The new additions from Srixon feature the brand’s softest FastLayer Core to date, with the core beginning soft in the center and transitioning to a firmer perimeter in design to offer equal parts distance and feel.

Srixon’s matte visual performance technology aims to provide improved visibility on the new Soft Feel Brite balls, while the ball’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern is designed to reduce drag at launch and increase lift during descent.

The Soft Feel Brite balls also feature a soft, thin cover which bids to provide more greenside spin and softer feel on all pitches, chips and putts.

“Soft Feel Brite delivers all the benefits of the Soft Feel golf ball with additional matte color offerings. With the addition of the FastLayer Core, Soft Feel Brite provides the total package of enhanced distance, feel and visibility.” – Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Srixon.

The Soft Feel Brite balls are available to purchase now at Srixon.com and cost $21.99 per dozen.

What irons do you play? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the irons that they currently play. WRXer ‘Vater’ asks members which brand they have in the bag and why, and you can see the results so far after 189 survey participants.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Vater: “I use Titleist 718 AP1s because they cost less new than some used clubs, haha. In all seriousness, I love the quality overall, and specifically, I was looking for a set with a good GW – and most of all, I wanted to play a 4 iron again, and the 4 and 5 irons in the 718 AP1s are beastly.”
  • aadadams: “I use Taylormade Speedblades for about the last 6 years, they still work great for my game, and I don’t see a change in the near future.”
  • Celebros: “Cobra Forged Tour.”
  • jholz: “I am Cleveland, but towards the latter end of the glory days – CG7 Tours. About as good a club as money can buy. Wish I could find some CG7 Tour Concepts!”
  • gripandrip: “Srixon 745’s. Most likely may be looking to the ZX7 as a possible replacement. Love my Srixon irons.”
