That is the best looking Callaway CB I've seen in a long time... maybe ever.

Unfortunately my game isn't at that level.

Hope they've got something that good looking lined up for the rest of us.

Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. These are going to feel AMAZING with the PXi shafts in them. I just know it.

The timing of this "official release" is fantastic.

Love the look of these, at least from the angles we have so far, minimum badging, great stock shaft, clean lines. Let's hope the offset is just as minimal and the top line stays svelt

Well, nice to know that I am done looking for my set for 2013 and haven't even seen them in person yet!! By all accounts, I am done.
These will be in the bag in 2013 for sure..nuff said.  TM had a good run, but these...these are kind of everything I look for in an iron.

Classic look, forgiveness built in and just freaking amazing looking!  Shafts will have to be experimented with..didn't like the PX...so we will see about the PXi...I like some heft in my irons...Ctaper 130X right now...

They do look amazing compared to the last several years worth of 'Razr' stuff. Classy looks and great stock shaft, hopefully this is a sign for the rest of the lineup.

Well, that was worth the wait. Now back to dreaming that when I wake up it's Jan 15, 2013 and I have about $1300 cash in my pocket to pick up my new Razr Fit Xtreme driver & a set of X Forged irons.

They were perfect with NO badges.

It's a "Callaway" and an "X", hardly worthy of full "badging". To each his own I guess. And you can always remove them with a little heat.
That's vanilla compared to what OEMs are doing these days.  Man, I wish I could hit these.  I need more of a cavity.

I agree and don't understand why Callaway gets bashed for badging. Yes, some of their GI clubs have a lot but what GI club doesn't?  These look sharp - can't wait to see how the mid to long irons blend with my X-Protos. Titleist, TM, etc. have 10xs more badging than these irons do.  Do people really think that a manufacturer is going to put something on the market with no branding on it?

worst case, you heat up the badge and remove it...did it on my TM's..no issues...just have to watch your swing weighting.

To me, the badges barely make a difference. They don't cover anything up or distract from the overall look, the design of the cavity is still clearly seen. Callaway has to have their name on it someplace, and it looks they did a good job of placing it on these. Can't get much simpler or cleaner.

Anyway, enough of that. Is it just me or do these look pretty short from heel to toe, just judging by the picture of it behind the ball. Can't wait to see in-hand pics of these.

I'm not all that familiar w/ the PXi, can you give me a brief rundown of the benefits?  I was not a fan of PX or PX Flighted b/c they ballooned on me, badly. I currently use C-Tapers & was hoping Callaway would offer KBS @ no upcharge b/c Phil & Ernie are now KBS guys.

Chad or Harry,

Is PXi the stock shaft option? Any thoughts of adding KBS shafts as a no upgrade option, considering Mickelson & Els seem to be using KBS now?

Yes on PXi, yes on no upcharge KBS Tour
