New Callaway X Forged Irons Unveiled in Japan

Published

on

Our friend Jonathan Wall from PGATOUR.com scooped a photo of a new Callaway X-Forged iron being released in Japan, which he shared with the golf world on Twitter. It’s a long-anticipated release, and as such, GolfWRX Members are already responding here.

The photo of the irons come from this Alba story, and from the translation we can discern that the new irons are due for release in Japan in mid-October. If you can read Japanese, you’ll likely glean further insights. The irons are not yet listed on Callaway’s Japan website.

Callaway’s last X-Forged iron release came in 2013, and the irons became the stuff of legend. Several Callaway Staffers are still using the irons on the PGA Tour, including Phil Mickelson (See Mickelson’s Full WITB).

    Let’s hope these aren’t $300 a club like the Epic Star.

    FFS who cares about the back? Show the setup, face, and sole please!

      Gearheads only slobber over the glue-on graphic plaques on the back of the irons for the ‘bling effect’.
      Real golfers want to look at the performance aspects of the club design….. and even cover up the back with lead tape for added MOI.

    The back of the club is largely cosmetic. The hosel offset and CG location (distribution of metal mass) is all that matters to the swing and ball impact.

      And the ball is whacked only by the front of the club! What’s all this fuss over the design of the rear end of the clubhead.
      Oh, I get it. The only way to obsolete the last club models is to change the appearance of the back!
