Wanted to see who has hit these irons and opinions?  I had the opportunity to try all the new callaway equipment yesterday even being as cold as it was here outside 34 degrees  a few of us were able to go to a heated driving range and try the new callaway clubs. For me I thought the Xhot pro's were going to be my iron choice but when all was said and done I fell in love with the new X forged with the stock PX pxi shaft I have not hit a forged iron that felt that good and easy to hit since my Hogan apex plus irons.
I am wondering if anyone else has had the same experience. I ordered the irons yesterday should have them in about 2 weeks can't wait for the season to start

I have not hit them outside, but I am in the same situation you were in.  The X-forged are just flat out sexy, and I honestly thought they were just about as easy to hit as the X-Hot Pro.  I am thinking it might have something to do with the PXi shaft, but I they feel and perform really well.  I was really surprised as well, because in terms of shape and size they are really that much difference either.  It is hard having so many good choices this year.

I agree with you I do belive that the PX shaft in them help with a little more active tip section vs the regular PX shaft.

What ever it is they sure are sexy, and really are a great feeling combo.  I really think there is no way to go wrong with either.

I hit them Thursday night and then again on Saturday.

Thursday- Demo day was on mats and walked away saying it was waaaay too much club however I hit the X-hot pro relatively well.

Saturday- Demo day was on grass. Walked away saying the x-hot pro is definitely head and shoulders more forgiving HOWEVER I am not nearly as intimidated at the x-forged as I originally thought. Hell I hit the x-forged in stiff, x-stiff and then the Razr MB all back to back and found them to feel the same. Off center hits means 20 yard pitch whereas the x-hot pros meant a 10-15 yard pitch.

They are definitely sexy.

I am your mid capper who plays great on the range but cannot mentally take it to the course, so on the range my ballstriking is pretty good. I will end this by saying that anyone who says that these clubs are the least bit forgiving is out of their minds. I hit every callaway iron this weekend and will say the x-forged is much closer to the muscle back than either of the x-hots.
