Golf Australia Express : March 2013
FINAL TAKE: X Hot Irons TEST the TEST the YOUR INDEPENDENT REVIEW THE FINAL member of the X Hot family we reviewed will appeal to many, and confuse others. It might be fair to call the X Hot irons the least attractive of Callaway Golf's 2013 X-range of irons (the X Forged and X Hot Pro are visual stunners), but these game-improvers certainly have some game. While they deliver on the main message coming out of Carlsbad—superior distance—the forgiveness offered on mis-hits will also appeal to most golfers. The better player, or rather better ballstriker, might be turned off by its thicker sole and is likely to prefer the X Hot Pro or X Forged irons. Ball flight is consistent, if not slightly higher in trajectory, and you'll notice the ball almost exploding off the face. That might have something to do with a deep undercut cavity creating a trampoline effect. All we know for sure is you won't be wanting for distance with these sticks.
