Read the detailed review to find the bestselling aspects of this product and what makes it a top recommendation for golfers.
360-degree cup face for Callaway XR individual irons
The 360-degree face technology in the Callaway XR irons is the thin piece of metal on the face wrapping around the bottom and the top. This technology increases the ball speed by allowing the face to flex resulting in more distance across the face.
The unique face cup technology also acts as a spring for shots hit low on the face, improving the ball speed across the entire face. Great ball speed is guaranteed no matter where the ball makes contact with the face. This is the one amazing feature of the XR iron that makes it stand out as the best choice for a golfer.
Internal standing wave
Callaway has incorporated internal standing wave from their woods into the XR irons. Internal standing waves in the XR iron, act as a spring for the ball shots hit low. It lowers center of gravity moving it forward and increasing the MOI. This is crucial in golf club making, as it determines the forgiveness of the club since most of the golfers do not often hit the ball with the center of the clubface.
It goes without mentioning that the Callaway series are always on top of their game with their good-looking clubs in the club bag or even just behind the ball. As usual, the Callaway did not fail to deliver flawless beauty in the XR iron series. From the moment you lay your eyes on the irons, the outstanding forgiveness goes without saying.
The classic badging within the cavity, two-piece construction and the longer than average head, makes the Callaway XR iron stand out as a well-crafted masterpiece. It has the best craftsmanship that guarantees you with durability.
Most clubs in the market come with relatively thin soles, making them annoyingly unforgiving. This is not the case when it comes to the superb Callaway men’s’ XR iron. The XR iron comes with wider soles compared to other clubs, making it not only forgiving but also consistent thus boosting a golfer’s confidence.
Wider soles also make it easier for any golfer to achieve more ball distance despite the point of impact. You can be assured of a successful swing anytime, with the XR iron.
Progressive lofts and lengths
Aloft is the angle of the clubface as positioned in the shaft, with each club having its own loft hence the difference in the trajectory of the ball. Loft also determine the number of a club, the more the loft in a club the higher the number a club is assigned. The Callaway XR irons come with progressive lofts and lengths, which make a golfer, achieve longer distance from each iron you sway.
The iron in every set of the Callaway XR iron is made of graphite which serves as a great material for a club shaft, thanks to its durability and performance. With this kind of shaft, you can let the club do most of the work, as most golfers say.
The shaft also comes in different flexes; regular for the shortest hitters, senior flex which is designed for golfers that swing a little harder and senior flexes meant for the professional golfers.
