TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Callaway Steelhead XR/XR Pro Irons

Recommended Posts

(4) TESTERS WANTED

Callaway Steelhead XR/
XR Pro Irons

 

 

Can a remake ever be as good as the original? Could a remake ever be better than the original?

 

Ever since the rebirth of Big Bertha, Callaway has had no problem bringing back iconic names from the past - Great Big Bertha, Fusion, Apex and now, Steelhead.

 

Callaway has hit the proverbial daily double with the new Steelhead XR and the Steelhead XR Pro irons. At last count, the Steelhead XR's are the number one selling iron in golf and has helped make Callaway the number one OEM in golf.

 

Clearly the Steelheads are more than just a new dress on an old girl, but does the performance match the hype? That's where you come in.

Testers Wanted:
 

Callaway touts the new Steelheads as a signature shape with breakthrough performance. Both the XR and XR Pro models check all the boxes: speed and distance from the next-generation 360 Cup Face Technology, the Bore-Thru hosel for greater forgiveness and a progressive center of gravity for more control.

 

Can these new sticks with the old names improve your ball striking and help you shoot lower scores? We need four avid golfers to help us find out.

The ball speed off of those xr pro irons is stupid. 7 irons were going almost 200.

* Tyler

* Missouri

* 12

* Ping G25 (Left hand)

* Biggest strength: short irons, usually around 8-PW

* Biggest weakness: Getting a high ball flight / being able to control the ball, both of those are not my strong suit.

 

I have been looking into the XR Pro irons for a while now, this is perfect! Thanks for the opportunity!

• Chuck

• Long Island, NY

• typical score mid/hi 90s so est hcp ~18-20

• Cobra "home-made" progressive set: GW-7i is King F6, 6i is Cobra Max and 5i is King OS

(4 is XR Hybrid)

• Strengths: able to hit high or low; learning to hit a small draw or fade when needed; most comfortable on the course with irons (and wedges)

• Weaknesses: dispersion increases with club length but am constantly working on it and improving; sometimes chunk approach shots (mostly mental lapse); still have trouble with steep ball below the feet lies.
