Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave C. The Best of the Best
These irons are the best. I'm a 60 year old golfer, and I bought these clubs in 2010 on a whim. Always wanted to play forged again after decades of cast iron playing. Had been playing X-12's for a while, very good clubs also.
No fitter or pro would have advised me to buy forged, especially with 6.0 stiff shafts. But I hit the forged as far as the x-12's. I also hit the ball straighter. And the feel is heavenly, a good shot feels like a good shot. In 2011, I had more sub 80 rounds than any year before.
I can't speak for all old guys, but for me, forged was the way to go. If I could putt, I'd be a single digit man. The only con I can come up with is I'm using iron covers to prevent nicks as much as possible. After a year of use, the irons still look like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swamp Laundry Sweetest set of irons I've swung!
I had to lay off the game for a year due to a broken leg. When I came back to golf, my forged blades were too difficult to get right back on the horse and hit. These forged irons, with a slight cavity back were exactly what I needed. I still have the work-ability and feel I desire when my game is on, and when I have the occasional mishit, I find my next shot being near the green, rather than 40 yards short, as I often found myself with a mishit true blade. I hit these a little higher than I'd prefer, but that's fixable with the right shaft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by $ycoballz Fantastic players' irons!
These clubs are the ultimate for the person looking for a players club but not a muscle back blade iron. Getting back into golf, I just can't hit the sweetspot on my older blades all the time any more... but I absolutely hate the big hammer style game improvement irons. I like small clubs I can work through the rough and other lies cleanly. I like to be able to work the ball a little. These things are awesome... they're a better players' club with patented Callaway forgiveness. The heads are small and they are NOT as forgiving as game improvement clubs but if you strike the ball reasonably well and like classic looking iron heads instead of gigantor, 160-yard with my eyes closed pitching wedge game improvement clubs that should come with their own built in range finders, then may you rest assured that you are buying the absolute finest irons crafted by human hands. I've always loved Dynamic Gold shafts but my set has the Flighted Rifle Project X shafts and they are dynamite! I love the flighted trajectory... these might be my new favorites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldshamrock69 Best yet from Callaway
I bought these irons as replacements for a set of X-18 pro's and I couldn't be happier. The X-18's were good clubs, but had more offset that made working the ball difficult. With these X- forged, the heads are set virtually square and I can move the ball left or right. Distance is about the same, but the forged heads generate much more feed back and solid hits feel like butter.

was playing with Mizuno's MP32s.
These are longer and more forgiving and still let me work the ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golf Lover! Solid Irons
I have played Callaway irons from X-14 Pro series, FT irons, Diabolo Forged irons and just switched to 2009 X-Forged irons with nippon 1100 (the same irons Graeme McDowell won the 2010 US Open). I must say they are the BEST players irons that I have ever played. Its long, accurate, workable and sweetest feeling irons. No negative, just all positive!

I was alittle hesitant trading my Diablo Edge irons in for these . I wanted a blade but with some forgiveness....The prototypes where looking good , but I felt I wasn't ready for a real blade...But like I said , I was looking for some thing close...there 09 forged irons fit the bill . Once again , Dave at CPO walked me through every thing , I knew what I wanted , we got these plus 1 ( I am 6.3 ) 2 degree,s up right , project X 6.0 flighted shafts , Golf pride Decada MC grips , plus one wrap...They showed up a week latter , once again , brand new..I immediately went to the course , I just grabbed the 9 iron , hit down on the ball..I just stood there , it was like butter...So I would suggest any one looking to move on from the BIG cavity back irons , but are afraid of getting blades , these are sweet....Just a note , I can hit my longer irons better with these then the Diablo,s
