Summary: Remember this is a player's club. The small head would make you think it would be hard to hit. Not at all. First time I used it I shot my best round of the year. Didn't hit any practice balls before my round. And the stopping power, WOW.........Match them with the Rifle Project X shaft and you have a dynamic combination. Remember, this is not a beginner's club. 10 Handicap or less.
Summary: Great set or irons! I've played with both blades and large cavity back and these by far are the best feeling of the bunch. They have the weight, feel, and sound of a blade but with the forgiveness of a blade. Very workable too!
Plenty of forgiveness for the 14 handicapper, super consistent

Summary: I desperately needed to switch from "firm flex" graphite shafts to steel shafts for more consistency in direction. So I made some research to find the best clubs for me, with the budget in mind. Bought some x-22 tours in good shape, with 5.5 Project X Flightened. I'm very happy with these. They offer way enough forgiveness for me, I play 14 Hcp. Great distance, good feel, extremely consistent. Happy with the shaft flex as well, they give a comfortable feel.
Summary: i bought the x-22 tour irons because i wanted a clean classic blade with the legendary callaway forgiveness. it was all that. the clubs produced a very solid controlled hit. i did not keep them, however, for personal reasons. the feel of the clubs was too muted for my taste. i want forgiveness, but i want to be able to feel where on the club the mishit occurred. i didn't get that feedback.
Summary: I bought these to update from my antique Titlist irons. They are much easier to hit and hit longer without losing the feel to turn the ball. So far, they are hitting about a club further, and have good feedback to your hands without being harsh. I have only played 108 holes with them so we are still "getting to know each other", but they are smooth hammers to hit accurately.
Summary: Chinese knockoffs, have callaway look alike sticker on shafts that read usa shafts, china heads assembled in usa but 3 iron also had sticker at base of grip that read "assembled in china" no where is there a s/n to register with callaway as advertised. Clubs have very poor sound when hitting ball.
