Callaway X Forged 2018 Irons Features

X Forged 2018 irons have the compact, simple look of a blade at address. The top line is relatively thin and the muscle back in the center of the cavity gives you the right feel in the right places.  A minimal amount of peripheral weighting and slightly longer blade length provide a little more forgiveness, compared to the new Apex MBs (which is nice). This version of the X Forged 2018 irons is more angular than the previous model, debuting in 2013. The angles add to the sleek, aggressive look of the irons.

The clubface of the X Forged 2018 irons features Callaway’s 20V grooves. Tour players love these grooves because they maximize control and reduce the likelihood of fliers from the rough. So, no matter the conditions, you get consistent distances. The CG location in each club is also optimized for higher ball flight in long irons and a flatter trajectory in scoring clubs.

The irons provide exceptional feel and high-performance thanks to the extremely precise triple net forging process. The soles have a slightly round leading and trailing edge for excellent turf interaction from a variety of lies and conditions. The lofts of the X Forged 2018 irons are slightly stronger than the MB irons. However, they’re close enough to make a combo set a great option for someone looking for a little more forgiveness in the long irons and blade performance and feel in the short irons.

X Forged 2018 Irons: The Last Word

Right and left-handed players can choose from 3-PW with a Project X steel shaft. There are also several shaft upgrades available. Single-digit handicap players who like the look and performance of blades but want a little help will be drawn to the X Forged 2018 irons.
