Callaway X Hot 2020 Pro Review
A theme Callaway have deployed is to re-introduce popular models from yesteryear allowing them to re-imagine some great performing clubs at a price that matches more budgets. At JAM Golf we are pleased to offer the iron sets in both graphite and steel in 5- SW sets.
The X Hot are a long forgiving iron that will appeal to a wide range of golfers. They are designed with a relatively wide sole to help launch the ball higher as well as a hotter face to aid ball speed and therefore increase distance. The standard steel shaft in this set is the True Temper XP 85 gram shaft, available in regular and stiff, which being lighter than other steel shafts can be instrumental in increasing swing speed.
X Hot Pro Tips
Whilst the technology in these irons are geared around creating ball speed a way that distance can also be achieved is by lowering loft – the sand wedge is 54 degrees for example. With this in mind, check the lofts in the distance clubs in your bag to ensure the 5 iron at 25 degrees, for example, isn’t too close to any hybrid clubs or fairway woods but more importantly look to add a wedge past the sand wedge at 58/60 degrees to help with the scoring shots around the greens.
