Take your game to a new level with Callaway's X20 Uniflex Irons. These new X-20 Irons are packed with the latest technology and the best innovations to help enhance confidence and deliver ultimate performance.
Callaway engineers succeeded in lowering the CG by six percent utilizing the Progressive Wall Reduction System, thus producing the lowest CG among long irons in the X20 series to enhance feel and playability. Together with their patented Callaway Golf Core Technologies, these irons help you get your ball airborne with such ease while maximizing ball speed for greater distance and forgiveness.
Extreme Notch Weighing is the highlight in the Callaway list of innovations which repositions more weight to the perimeter of the club head. This will increase MOI dramatically to improve stability and boost forgiveness. Plus, the fact that the hitting area on the club face is widen due to the 360-degree Undercut Channel, forces the CG farther and lower to the back of the club head to deliver penetrating shots, high and long, even on miss-hits.
Another breakthrough Callaway design in the Callaway X20 Uniflex Irons is the S2H2 or Short, Straight, Hollow Hosel. This unique innovation shortens the traditional hosel length and delivers discretionary weight to the perimeter area of the club head for a solid feel and optimal control. The Tru-Bore Technology which is part of the S2H2 design extends the shaft tip right through the club head to the sole and effectively dampens vibration for an improved feel and playability.
These irons are remarkably easy to hit straight, especially when they are a Uniflex and come in steel shaft - think of it as a firm flex. A new player could easily grow into these Uniflex shafts as ability improves without the need to upgrade the stiffness. The shafts are fairly light for steel shafts and help increase the swing weight. This allows the player to know where club head is at and promotes some confidence. It's undeniable the Callaway X20 Irons Uniflex Irons are designed to provide the perfect balance of performance and forgiveness.
After trying out other irons (TM R7s, Cobra FPs) I decided to give the X-20s a try since I saw that even some pros use these. At first, the short hosel put me off but I was surprised at the response after a couple of hits. The ball is quite workable for being cavity back irons. Off center hits still go straight with a relatively low distance penalty. Also, there's just enough feedback coming through to let me know that I missed. Yeah, 'pure' shots don't fell as buttery as a Mizuno but what do you except from a cast iron club. My old 300s would kick like a herd of angry mules on mishits and could lose over 20 percent of the distance even when barely missing.
Compared to the competition, these clubs have very good distance gaps. The R7s loft difference between the 5 and 3 irons was only 5 degrees! The Cobras had better lofts but yardage gaps were about the same, but overall distance was lower.
