The 2009 Callaway X-22 Irons is atop of the most popular irons list. The big story this year lies in the Precision Notch Weighting system that positions weight around the perimeter for a very high Moment of Inertia (MOI). In addition, the Tru-Bore technology that dampens vibration makes this one smooth iron. And if that doesn’t tickle your tech fancy, VFT, S2H2 and 36- Degree Undercut Channel helps move the CG even further back than it’s predecessor for a very large hitting area. The sixth go-around of this cast club incorporates several hallmarks of the X-series.

Actual Player Feedback-
“I could hit these blindfolded”.
“I was smoking the 3-iron, I can’t remember the last time I did that”
“You can get forgiveness on just about every shot”
The Callaway X-22 has proved it’s salt to golfing warriors everywhere. The previous X-series irons have laid the groundwork for this great iron. The MOI and forgiveness will match any iron out there period. The new cavity badge definitely adds a touch of pizazz as well.
Not much. But one thing we did find amiss was the shaft options. Great graphite selection but only offers a UniFlex in steel. This may become a big marketing snafu for Callaway. It’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds.
The Callaway X-22 needs to be on every recreational player’s short list. It offers everything a game-improvement iron should – massive MOI and forgiveness.
