Callaway X Forged CB 21
Our take: Better players will nitpick the way an iron goes through the ground. If it sticks or impacts the turf in an inefficient manner, a hook is imminent. Based on tester feedback, golfers needn’t worry about this issue with X Forged CB. The subtle sole camber, in particular, received high marks from several eagle-eyed testers who claimed it produced the best turf interaction of any iron they tested. “It’s poetry when club meets golf ball,” said one tester.
The details: The X Forged CB utilizes a multi-material construction rather than a one-piece design to help players achieve distance and consistency. In classic X Forged fashion, though, the new CB still comes in an appealing better player shape with a head forged from 1025 carbon steel and a back weight to tune swingweight.
