Majority of golfers, regardless of caliber, are meticulous when it comes to golf. The right golf club and the right golf ball, along with a golfer’s inherent skill and talent, could spell victory even in the direst of conditions. The Callaway Golf Company is the biggest golf club developer, manufacturer, distributor and seller in the world. They offer a wide variety of golf clubs ranging from high performance wedges to premium quality irons. The company’s latest lines of irons are the X2 hot and X2 Hot Pro Iron.
The new X2 Hot irons have chevron shaped stabilizing arches on the back of their cavities. This feature allows the lower parts of their faces to have greater flexibility upon impact. It also allows golfers a greater level of maneuverability and helps the ball retain its speed and trajectory.
The X2 Hot irons are also designed with a deeper undercut at the back of their faces, which enables them to have longer reach compared to their ancestors, the X2s.
Like the X2 Hot irons, the X2 Hot Pro irons are also equipped with stabilizing arches. This enables the iron to produce a consistent ball speed and prevents unwarranted bending of the golf club’s top lines. These arches also improve the golf club’s sound and feel.
The X2 Hot irons and X2 Hot Pro irons are the cheapest irons amongst the company’s 2014 catalog. This is due to their construction. Both of these models are cast which is a more cost-efficient way than forging. Nonetheless, their cheap construction does not affect their overall performance. These two golf clubs have a more compact design compared to their predecessors. Their soles have a thick center and a thin heel and toe, a design inspired by the Callaway Golf Company’s X Forged irons soles.
Both the X2 hot and X2 Hot Pro Irons are equipped with company’s height progression system which allows the weight to be adjusted to suit a golfer’s preference. The weight is moved higher with short irons for a low trajectory with great spin, and lower with mid and long irons for higher trajectory and lesser spin.
The Callaway Golf Company’s X2 Hot irons and Hot Pro Irons are relatively cheaper than most golf clubs in the market. They are versatile due to their adjust ability. They both produce consistent speed and trajectory. They deliver an excellent performance.
Their appearance does not fare well with majority of the golfers. There is also a minor issue regarding durability since they were made using the casting process.
Majority of the reviews regarding these two golf clubs were positive. Many were pleased with their performance. They were able to satisfy their golfing needs and delivered surprisingly great results even though they were relatively cheap and had an unappealing appearance. According to them, the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro irons enabled them to send the ball flying with consistent speed and reach. They were also well pleased with the adjust ability of the design giving them a number of equipment configuration choices to choose from. They were also able to prove to themselves that its appearance had nothing to do with their performance.
On the other side of the coin, a number of people were displeased with the X2 hot and X2 Hot Pro irons appearance. A number of people stated that their designs were unappealing and bland. A number of people also stated that no one should use an ugly “golf club” even though they performed great. Some also said that they were disappointed at the Callaway Golf Company as these golf clubs were indicative of regression. Some even claimed that the company is at high risk of closing down if they kept “this” up.
