If they would remake the 2007 X Forged I would switch back to all Callaway instantly.

These look nice, but as far as the "new" muscle back look goes from all the major OEM's I still prefer Mizzy/Titleist/Taylormade. The 718's and MP18's are timeless.

Freaky nasty. Can't wait to see the topline. I personally hope its a little more square and the heel is a little deeper than past designs.

It also reminds me of a Bridgestone/Tour Stage, but not in a bad way.

These are actually the ugliest, least traditional looking iron in the whole sector (compared to Mizuno, Titleist, Srixon, TM). Performance aside, I MUCH prefer the aesthetics of the 2013 x forged.

Very interested in these. I am astounded at the amount of great clubs coming out from a technical and aesthetically pleasing standpoint  recently. I will have a hard, hard time finally upgrading when it comes time at the end of the year.

Oh man.  I like these way better than the Apex line as far as aesthetics are concerned.  I saw on Twitter that these are a Japan release?  Any info on whether they'll be state-side or not?  I missed the boat on the 2013 X Forged.  I wanted a set so bad, but couldn't pull it off financially.  I may have to sell one of my children if these are released in the states.

They look way different from these angles than in Jonathan Wall's original Twitter photo (they almost looked hollow there). To me, they look similar to the TM P750/770, but I like the symmetry of the TMs a little more.

I'll reserve judgement until I see them in person, but the proportions and shape of the 2013s looks better at first sight. At least they started to go back to more squared off than the 16 Apex Pros.  Interesting...

That cavity is much more pronounced than in the first picture. Looks really good. Topline, sole width, and offset looks great. Looks like a winner to me.
