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

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.
