The X Hot Pro Irons have been designed for a more discerning golfer with an explosive blend of power, feel and pinpoint shot-making. This re-engineered stainless steel iron features new J-Face Dynamics, a face technology that combines precise face thickness control and undercut depth to deliver the power and feel that skilled golfers prefer.
The X Hot Pro Irons also feature Callaway's 20-degree Close Spaced V Grooves, which are typically reserved for forged player irons, but have been included in the X Hot Pro Irons to offer up to 1000rpm more backspin out of the rough (in comparison to its predecessor). These are Callaway's most precise grooves, delivering optimum performance in an iron for better players.
Also announced today are the X Hot™ and X Hot™ Pro Hybrids designed by Callaway to complement the new distance-promoting irons. These long, high-performing hybrids apply a thin Speed Frame Face for significantly higher CT and faster ball speeds. Both X Hot Hybrids also introduce a modern Warbird® sole plate relieved in the heel and toe for enhanced versatility from a variety of lies. The club shape allows for the distance and forgiveness of a fairway wood with the accuracy and control of an iron, providing a fast and long complement to the X Hot Irons and a great replacement for long irons. Both models are available with a Project X Velocity stock shaft.
The standard X Hot Hybrid will be available in a 3, 4, 5 and 6. The X Hot Pro model, which features a smaller footprint often preferred by better players, will be available in 16-, 18-, 20- and 23-degree models.The new product introduction price for the X Hot Irons is $699 with steel shafts and $899 with graphite shafts. For the X Hot Pro Iron, the new product introduction price is $799 with steel shafts and $999 with graphite shafts. Both models of the X Hot Hybrids will be available for a new product introduction price of $179.
