TECH: Call­away’s pre­mium forged iron has a classic look that’s been in­flu­enced by its tour staff. The heads are soft 1025 car­bon steel to max­imise feel, and pro­gres­sive CGs (thanks to tung­sten weight­ing) op­ti­mise playa­bil­ity through the set.

WE SAY: Some­how Call­away has man­aged to roll what looks like a rea­son­ably for­giv­ing cav­ity back de­sign into a head that looks very much like a blade at ad­dress. It’s a cracker, and we ap­plaud them for pulling it off. Chris Ryan re­ally liked the soft-but­solid feel, say­ing it was one of the nicest feel­ing forged clubs he hit. His long­est shots came from both slight toe and heel hits (9mm spread be­tween them) which demon­strates a de­gree of playa­bil­ity that wasn’t present in ev­ery bet­ter player iron we hit.

VER­DICT: A lovely look­ing iron that’s aimed at the very best, but with an ex­tra de­gree of for­give­ness. The sole and lead­ing edge shap­ing is also a lit­tle more friendly than some pre­vi­ous Call­away players’ irons.
