Callaway X Hot 7 ironWe’re proud to introduce the new X Hot™ and X Hot™ Pro Irons. Long-renowned for its best-selling and accurate irons, our award-winning Research and Development department set out to deliver measurable distance gains with these two new, aggressive irons. The X Hot and X Hot Pro Irons have distinctly different technologies that fuel distance and complete performance for both amateur and professional golfers.

Callaway X Hot Pro 2013 IronIn pursuit of significant distance gains, we’ve incorporated a Deep Undercut Cavity Design and our powerful Speed Frame™ Face Technology to strike a balance of high ball speeds and great feel. The deep undercut design allows us to precisely position the Centre of Gravity (CG) and move the most compliant part of the face – the hottest part – lower, where more golfers make contact with the ball. And for the first time, we’ve incorporated Speed Frame Face Technology from our drivers into the X Hot Irons. Doing so optimises stiffness across the face for more efficient energy transfer. This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-centre contact.

Callaway X Hot Pro Iron break apartRounding out the X Hot Irons is the Feel Management Technology, a dual material medallion that fine tunes sound by promoting a crisp, dynamic feel at higher ball speeds. The stock shaft we’re offering is a True Temper Speed Step 85 Lightweight Steel Shaft.

The X Hot Pro Irons have been designed for a more discerning golfer with an explosive blend of power, feel and pinpoint shot-making. This re-engineered stainless steel iron features new J-Face Dynamics, a face technology that combines precise face thickness control and undercut depth to deliver the power and feel that skilled golfers prefer.

The X Hot Pro Irons also feature our 20-degree Close Spaced V Grooves, which are typically reserved for forged player irons, but have been included in the X Hot Pro Irons to offer up to 1000rpm more backspin out of the rough. These are Callaway’s most precise grooves, delivering optimum performance in an iron for better players.

Callaway X Hot Pro Hybrid Break-apartAlso announced today are the X Hot™ and X Hot™ Pro Hybrids designed to complement the new distance-promoting irons. These long, high-performing hybrids apply a thin Speed Frame Face for significantly higher CT and faster ball speeds. Both X Hot Hybrids also introduce a modern Warbird® sole plate relieved in the heel and toe for enhanced versatility from a variety of lies. The club shape allows for the distance and forgiveness of a fairway wood with the accuracy and control of an iron, providing a fast and long complement to the X Hot Irons and a great replacement for long irons. Both models are available with a Project X Velocity stock shaft.
The standard X Hot Hybrid will be available in a 3, 4, 5 and 6. The X Hot Pro model, which features a smaller footprint often preferred by better players, will be available in 16-, 18-, 20 and 23-degree models.

The X Hot and X Hot Pro Irons and Hybrids will be available from all Callaway stockists from 25th January 2013. For a full gallery of the irons, please visit our Facebook page.
