I would absolutely appreciate an opportunity to test out these Steelhead XR irons.  I have attempted to be a tester on many products and never have been picked but this one is picture perfect for me.  I have a baseline to compare too as I currently use the XR irons.  


Thank you in advance for your consideration!!!!!



Seminole Florida


Callaway XR (Graphite)


The biggest strength to my iron play is probably distance control on properly struck shots.

The biggest weakness to my iron play is to be more consistent in my ball striking.
