Hit the new X forged yesterday because I think it looks spectacular but wasn't thrilled with the feel. The line for 2013 looks great. Could be a big year for Callaway.

i agree with mack. I hit the new Xforged about two weeks ago. It made it down to my final 3 choices (ended up going with TItleist 712cb/mb) but the feel just was not their for me. Seemed a little clicky. Nice thing is project x shafts are stock for those irons

Wish the new x forged had a satin finish. I hate shinny chrome irons!

It's tough to read because of the crappy iPhone camera, but, yeah, it says "RAZR X" on the back of the sole.

Tried out the X-Forged, X-Hot Pro irons and both are fantastic.  I did not think the X-Forged felt all too harsh or clicky, but perhaps I prefer the less than super soft forgings.
The X-Hot Pro iron has fantastic lines, transition and top line.  It does however feature a noticeable amount of offset.  Especially when comparing to the X-Forged, or competitors like the AP2 or RBlz Tour.  It is curious though, because my initial reaction is distain for such a feature, but it does an excellent job of framing the ball.  Feel is also very good for a cast cavity back.  My vote still goes to the X-Forged on feel, looks and thinner sole.

The X-Hot fairway is very user friendly and the finish looks great.  The ball jumps, without that feeling of those very thin faced clubs.  I did not try the pro, but I think size wise that would be my preference.  I would love to see new wedges too, but I guess you have to leave somethings for later.
