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.




How To Apply:

As you know, we take our club testing very seriously here at MyGolfSpy. We need two of you to test and review (and keep) a set of Callaway Steelhead XR's, and two more to test and review (and keep) a set of Steelhead XR Pro's.

My ability to work the ball around and sometimes thru obstacles strategically placed around the course testing my sanity.   

Finding the elusive sweet spot on my 1 Iron, no seriously where is it.
