Great start everyone, I am looking forward to reading all of your thoughts on these iron, I am a fan of the weighting of these clubs and also multi compound grips they use.

 

Newballcoach -  Congrats on the up coming family addition and want to hear how the new one likes the clubs!

So you're aware, from now on I'm going to charge you rent when I let you hit them at the driving range... :)

I hit these as a rental set at a driving range last week in Texas. Have a great feel with ball coming off. But for me they are a bit bulky and I don't like the look from the top. I like the narrow top edge. But overall they are great feeling irons.

Great start everyone, really looking forward to your reviews, these are on my short list for new irons and I'll be very interested to see the difference between the regular steelhead in the pro version, I have both in demo sets at my club and I am really stuck between the two.

That says a lot, how do you find the "feel" compared to the mizzy's?

Bump guys! My stage 2 is up. Apologies for being tardy. Please read and I would love to answer your questions and hear any feedback you have about the clubs. I had a great time testing them and if you hit them, I am betting you will too!

I'm always up for testing new equipment whether I'm looking to purchase or just for fun.  The opportunity was given to me by a local pro shop to allow me to test these irons, so I took advantage.  I'm currently playing the Srixon Z545 irons as a comparison.  First impression, I liked the look of them.  I felt they looked inviting to hit.  I did feel that these would suited for someone like myself or a beginner.  They looked forgiving without being massive.  I was also happy to see the pro version come out with that finish.  Those would be the ones I would go for if we looked at looks alone.

 

I took them out on the range, and I loved the sound and the feel of them.  I normally don't gravitate towards Callaway for some reason.  I've tested them, but I never seem to get the best out of them compared to other brands.  These would be one of the first ones that I've hit that if I was looking to purchase, that I would want in the line up for a fitting.  The flight was very straight and true.  If I messed with the shaft in the head a bit, I could have got the flight lower to match my eye a bit better.  They were very easy to get into the air.  I was also able to shape the ball the way I wanted with these, the same as I would with my current set.  I was able to get a little more distance out of my irons, but nothing that would scare me away from these.  The only thing I wouldn't do with these iron is get the hybrids to match.  The sound of those hybrids, I couldn't deal with, but that's another review.

Good stuff guys, these were the second best performing for me but not quite as nice a feel as the Mizunos I went with. I did find that they were very long though...

Nice overall review man. The MGS mods were smart to pick you because you ended up being perfect target for these irons.

 

Could you see yourself expanding your set into more Callaway products after this?

Callaway Steelhead Pro – Official MGS Forum Review by HighFade

 

 

Conclusion

 

This picture is all you need to know.  This is the new home for my Mizunos. 

attachicon.gifIMG_5531.JPG

I have done a couple reviews of clubs, but so far very few have beaten my current gamers.  The Steelheads are the exception. I am totally sold.  You can have my Steelheads when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers.

Total Score: 83/100

This is a really misleading score.  It should be over 90.  The low marks I gave were for the look and feel.  I cannot get used to the color.  I just hate it because it's not stainless steel.  And anyone will suffer when comparing feel with a Mizuno.  But if you want pure performance, the Steelhead beats everything I have seen.  And it's not close.

 

 

Great job and your early comment about high and long has me interested to say the least.  I actually like the darker colored irons as my Razr XF have a black finish and although you can see wear, I still think they're some sexy heifers. :wub:  If were in the market which I may be soon, these will definitely get a look!

Great reviews pal. It made me happy to see you found another worthy player to take these since they didn't work for you. It would've been a shame if they just had to sit in a closet somewhere.
