The NEW Steelhead XR Irons combine the shaping and playability that made the Steelhead X-14 one of the most popular irons of all-time. Callaway uses next-generation 360 Face Cup™ technology that helps with speed and distance in their irons.

A bar of steel-infused soft urethane positioned behind the lower portion of the face serves two functions:

1. Absorbs unwanted vibration for great feel.
2. Adds weight, which lowers the head’s Center of Gravity for faster ball speed on low hits and higher launch characteristics.

Callaway is also moving back to the bore-through head design which saves weight and allows for easier launch and more forgiveness.

We will have the Callaway Steelhead Iron demo’s in by the last week of August and the new Steelhead Irons will be available from Callaway for shipments, September 2, 2016.

    What swing weight do most tour players use in their irons?

    • As you can imagine they are all over the board but are very consistent throughout the set. Tiger has played D4 at standard length for a long time. Sergio is at D5 at standard length. A champions tour player, Gary Hallberg is at D2 at 1/4 inch under length and Eric Hallberg is at D3.5 at standard length. All irons in the set play the same swing weight. The only exception we see is some players prefer a little heavier swing weight in their high lofted wedges.
