Callaway X-14 irons are the successors to the popular Big Bertha
X-12's. There have been some adjustments made to this newest version
of the basic, oversized cavity-back design. The primary change
is the relocation to the sole of a greater percentage of the head
weight, which helps in getting the ball airborne. The overall
shape of the head is slightly smaller and more rounded than its
predecessor and do not have such a large unwieldy appearance as
was apparent in earlier Big Bertha irons.
The X-14 irons have the same forgiving feel as did the X-12's.
The Steelheads are one of the most user-friendly irons on the
market. Alignment is simple and the patented, "undercut"
cavity is huge and mishits anywhere on the face are amply corrected.
Callaway irons have a reputation for hitting the ball straight
and the new Steelheads are no exception
Feel on on the Steelheads is soft, but substantial. Shots feel
sweet with the exception of very thin hits which is due to the
heavy weight bar on the sole. From the fairway the X-14's picked
the ball up cleanly and easily due to the rounded soles of the
X-14's. The X-14's perform well from the rough, but unfortunately
fel short of performing in the heavy rough.
The one majoe downfall of these callaway clubs is the price that
these stainless steel irons, but then the majority of Callaway
Clubs carry a fairly large Price tag.
Over all, nice easy forgiving clubs that perform as expected,
if you can afford them.
