The longest, most accurate X Series Iron ever.

These clubs are powered by a consistently hot face that generates blazing ball speeds for maximum distance with pinpoint accuracy. The new stealth PVD finish provides a distinctive dark look that minimizes glare.

I have been playing my X-14’s for the last eight years. I had demoed each new iteration of the X-series as they came out but never felt that there was a significant improvement over the 14’s until I tried the( X-24’s). Just trying the( X-24s )in the store hitting bay got me all excited. They really are a quantum leap from any previous X’s. I found a demo day and tried them out, switching back and forth between the X-24’s and my own clubs. The X-24’s were at least a club and a half longer and straighter than my X-14’s and everything else there – Ping, Taylormade, Cleveland. I was also very impressed with the Diablo Forged. Torn between the X-24’s and the Diablo Forged, I went for a fitting at the Callaway Performance Center. Wonderful set-up. Well worth the [$ ] even though the fitting confirmed I am a standard or regular fit all round. The fitter initially suggested the Diablo Edge because of my high handicap but I didn’t like them and the fitting confirmed the X-24’s were for me. The Diablo Forged were just as long but the off hits were more scattered. As the fitter put it – go for the clubs with the ‘best worst’ hits. I ordered a steel 5 – SW set (including GapW) to compliment the wonderful 3&4 (FT-iZ hybrids )I bought earlier in the year.First time out with my new clubs, I put my approach shots clean over the green on the first three holes. Once I got the measure of these beauties I shaved 5 shots off my previous best. There is something about these that just inspires you to swing with total confidence. I think the dark metal makes the ball really stand out at address so I swing with more precision. They aren’t just ‘forgiving’ – I am actually swinging better. I am on the green in regulation at least twice as often as I was before. The ball comes off the face soooo sweet. Unfortunately, my putting has gone to hell lately but once I turn that around I expect to take at least five off my handicap very quickly.Anybody in the market for new irons really should give these beauties a try.
