The 20xi S is more popular and a pretty nice ball. Give it a try.
Given how the X rips back with a wedge, I don't think the S could stay on the front of the greens I play on!
Hit the ball higher with your wedges, the spin will decay a bit more and you won't see it reel back so much.
(this is not an entirely serious answer, btw)
My coach just got me punching through my wedges, I'm f'cked if I'm going back to floating them!
I threw that earlier comment in there because it's something I see in my game. I hit the ball too high with my wedges and short irons, and rarely get a ball that spins back. When I hit one lower, I'll see the dancing.
During the last year where I played Eye2+ irons, I worked at bringing the ball down, and would see more shots spin back, even to the 7 iron. Saw this especially after putting the blades back in the bag, where I was hitting the ball even lower, thanks to the Eye2+ trajectory work just mentioned.
Ultimately, you're better off controlling the trajectory and keeping it lower, less that can go wrong in the shot. The next trick is to learn to take spin off those lower flighted wedges.
