Then tried it on the range. Enjoy them and make them work for you. Topline maybe a bit thicker than I’d wish it, but I guess that’s life when playing game improvement irons. Graphite shafts are more expensive and you’ll see this reflected in the RRP displayed. I’m a fairly beginning golfer so as my swing gets better, these irons keep getting longer and longer. When I went to golf shop to get fitted, the fitter asked me how far I hit my 7 iron. What is new with the XR irons is that they have managed to do this within the framework of what looks like a classic Callaway distance iron with a visible cavity in the back, which is no mean feat given the narrow sole width they have to work with.

Wow, what a difference! On shorter par 4 holes I tee off with my 4 iron -really amazing product. On Trackman at a Callaway fitting session the ball spin was around rpm more than the Big Bertha Alpha I reviewed recentlywhich was to be expected. As a 63 year czllaway with a 14 hcp, my new XR driver gives me growing confidence that I have finally found the driver callxway my dreams. I told himhe said “I guarantee you will hit this 7 iron “.

It is also a long shaft, but if you go and get fitted by Callaway then there is a wide choice of shaft types and cllaway available at no extra charge, which is good to see.

I get yards farther carry, on average. I’m very happy with my purchase! Write a Review Rate This Product: I was fitted by an independent pro with all the equipment and after several makes and options eventually ended up with the XR with a dynamic gold S shaft, half inch longer and 2 degrees up.


Fantastic, can’t compliment enough. Some models are suitable for a wide range of abilities and will be shaded accordingly. I tried the Ping G Series and G30’s which were very good and an obvious improvement callwway my old ones.

Very happy with the purchase. My concession to Father Time has been to take advantage of the “Senior Tees”. Compared to the more compact sister Callaway XR Pro ironthe standard version has a shiny chrome finish rather than the brushed chrome and both look good. This is so we can show you the relative RRP of that particular set. And it truly suits even with low handicappers. Finally, the new feature you can see is the Speed Step Crown where a double ridge is embossed from the inside of the head to help reduce turbulence and get it moving faster through the air.

Callaway XR Driver Review – Golfalot

Yes the oldies, but they always performed to my wishes. Enjoy them and make them work for you. I could not prove to myself there was a difference. It actually felt very light to swing and that is due in part to the standard 46 inch, 50g Project X LZ50 shaft. So does it all work?


The Taylormade Burner TP had been my driver for six years.

Enough wedge whinging, because overall I callawqy the XR irons are one of the best game improvement irons I have tried this year and they are worthy descendants of the genre of Callaway iron which made the company great in the first place. I’ve been using Callaway drivers and fairway woods since the original Big Bertha days.

Callaway XR Pro Irons Review

And maybe that is your price trade off within the Callaway brand, but if the XR Pro series is to top the charts again then we need a little more action. After a back injury at work I stopped playing golf for 8 years but recently got back into golf with a set of Srixon irons. They play about a club longer than my previous set, which really is causing a gapping issue. I am a single hcp at 9. If longer yards and straighter fewer slices is meaningful, then it has exceeded my expectations.
