Buyers Guide 2017: Callaway Steelhead XR Pro Irons

Callaway Steelhead XR Pro IronsCallaway Steelhead Pro Irons are the newest addition to the XR family, and they combine a beautiful compact shape with playability and control in a sleek black PVD finish. The speed and distance of Steelhead Pro Irons are based on next- generation 360 Face Cup technology, which allows the edges of the ultra-thin face to freely flex and release at impact with greater efficiency, adding ball speed that promotes more distance, especially on off-center hits. More speed and distance on mis-hits is made possible by the modern hollow bore-thru hosel design, which allowed Callaway engineers to remove weight from the hosel and reposition it in strategic areas within the head to increase MOI for more forgiveness on mis‐hits and precisely position the CG strategically in the long, middle and short irons. Steelhead Pro long irons feature a low and far-back CG for consistent playability and long carry. Middle irons have an exception-ally low and mid-back CG to promote consistent launch and workability. Short irons have a low and mid CG to make them easier to promote lower, high-spinning shots, ideal for attacking the pin. Great feel and sound come from a new steel‐infused polyurethane layer positioned low in the head, behind the lower portion of the face. In addition to absorbing unwanted impact vibration to promote a remarkably satisfying sound and feel at impact, it also helps lower the CG to promote faster ball speed and higher launch characteristics for more distance. The head shape is more compact, with a thinner topline and narrower sole width in a high-performance player’s iron. And the sleek black PVD finish gives Steelhead Pro an unforgettable look.
