X Forged Irons
Outstanding Irons, Great Feel, Good Forgiveness
I have played Ping S59 irons for the last 5 seasons. Never really played well with them, they just seemed to not perform the same from shot to shot and were not forgiving at all. My best round with them in 5 years of casual play was an 82.
I ordered my X Forged Irons directly from Callaway (2 deg. Up, 3/4 long, 4-PW, KBS C Taper Shafts). First of all they are gorgeous to look at. I cant go to the range or the course and not catch someone eyeballing them or asking to see them.
I have played 4 rounds of golf with them since they arrived and after a full winter (NY State) off. I have shot 82, 75 (par 71), 63 (par 60 exec. course and 78. Mishits are still straight although about 15% shorter than flush shots. Everything just seems to go straight and land with a hop and stop. I am able to move the ball left to right, right to left with ease. Catching a mid iron or short iron on the sweetspot is so soft. You cannot explain it to someone playing cast irons or other lesser forgings. I can tell exactly where on the face I hit a shot before even looking at the impact mark.
These irons are worth a look, even if you not a single digit handicap now.. you may be by the end of the season.

Callaway's Ultimate Weapon, the new X Forged Irons
I hit these at both Golfsmith and Callaway Performance Center. I could not believe how awesome these feel, not to mention how great the look. The Callaway Performance Center at Mirimichi was over the top as well making sure every aspect of my fitting was right. I had consistent shot patterns and greatly improved swing efficiency over my previous clubs. Ordered and waiting for delivery.

Smooth as butter
Hit the 6 iron at Golfsmith today, and this club is truly amazing! I've played with X-Forged irons for the last few years, and this is the best yet. Hit this against my 2009 X-Forged 6 iron, and averaged 9 yards further. The looks are great too. Would almost be a shame to use these they look so nice. Really liking the Project X PXi shafts as well. Great job Callaway!

These are the best irons I've ever hit period. Solid feel and just enough weight in the head to feel your swing.

Wow. These 2013 X forged irons are a golf masterpiece. Easy to hit, very forgiving for MB clubs. I can turn the ball to the left to the right, I can hit them low or high. They are just fun to play with! And that distance! I tried a 5 iron at Golf Town and hit it at least 10 yds further than with my Callaway 09 X forged.
Can't go wrong with this one.

I purchased these irons as soon as they were available in Australia from my local pro shop and found them to be not only great looking clubs but very playable and just recorded my first sub par round one under on the back of some solid iron play so I am very impressed with them and they are in my bag to stay.

Nothing that even compares
Hit these irons a dozen times before I decided to buy them, worth every bit of waiting. The feel when you can hit these pure is amazing can't even feel the ball come off the face. Even the off center hits weather they be off the toe or heel still travel the desired distance. The spin with there are awesome too, these will stop on a green on a dime.

I picked up these after deciding that even though I'd suffer at first, I'd be better served in the long run by playing better, less forgiving clubs so I could really learn my swing. Yes, the first few times were less than inspiring, but I've really started to feel a repeatability in my swing without being rewarded with a decent shot from a mishit or poor swing.
Speaking of feel, they are ridiculously soft feeling. Paired with a low compression ball (Callaway Supersoft) it's really nice.
