VER­DICT This is the kind of club Call­away ex­cels at: It has a pleas­ing shape yet main­tains the easy-to-hit look at ad­dress that’s a must for a game-im­prove­ment iron. The spring-like cup-face (in which the face wraps around the top and sole to en­hance flex) pro­vides plenty of pop in the long and mid­dle irons, and there is more than enough for­give­ness to as­sist the mid­dle-hand­i­cap. Judg­ing by our testers’ re­ac­tion to this club the past two years (a con­vinc­ing five stars in Per­for­mance and Look/Sound/Feel each time), if there were a hall of fame for game-im­prove­ment irons, this one would be on it.

COM­MENTS (L) It has the sen­sa­tion of stay­ing on the club­face longer be­fore spring­ing off it.

(L) It has it all: I could hit fades or draws on com­mand. (M) Even the thin hits felt good. That’s in­sane.
